Ten Things That Make Me Smile

Family from out of town visiting

Warm October days



Surprises of a romantic kind

Good music stuck in my head

Unexpected gifts

Post season baseball (but I am still mourning my Cardinals not making it to the World Series Turning in early

Ten Things That Make Me Smile

Cutting my fingernails when they get too long to type properly

Working my day job from home on occasion

When a sick loved one leaves the hospital for home

A bright room after replacing a burned out light bulb

The funny feeling when I have a hole in the toe of my sock but am too stubborn to take the socks off because they are already on my feet for the day

A pleasant surprise in restaurant food portion size

The silly words of sleep talking

Remembering that thing I forgot to say BEFORE I end the conversation in which I meant to say it

Hearing childhood stories of a loved one that I hadn't heard until now

Sitting on the deck

10 Things That Make Me Smile

The blogger app on my phone

Cool June days

Dill pickles

Finished projects

The thought of one day finishing a very long term project

More than a good night's sleep

Finding a quarter on the sidewalk

My office, with newly rearranged furniture

Getting pictures hung

Ten Things That Make Me Smile

The moment I realize I'm wrong but don't want to admit it in front of anybody (Shhh don't tell my husband I wrote this)!

Sea shells

Tongue twisters

The Muppets

Fresh mushrooms

Public restrooms with automatic faucets that are the right temperature with the right water pressure

Public restrooms with enough toilet paper

Upbeat people

Well written prose

Park benches

--Hearing from my niece in boot camp

--Colored pencils

--That my father-in-law gets to leave skilled nursing soon

--Sayings on Church boards
