Happiness is.....

Today, I spent much of my morning setting up various i devices and wondering what the heck had happened to my music library after a recent update of itunes.  Apple can call their magic storage place the cloud.  I am going to call it the Phantom Menace.  I mean really.  I was happily putting music onto an ipod and mid-stream all these clouds popped up.  It looked like the weather radar and then I get a message that I must first download the music to my computer to continue my dragging and dropping. What? But, it was just there?!?   Phantom Menace.  Anyway, I was severely irritated, but somewhere in the process, I decided I wasn't going to let it tick me off for half of the day.  I decided I would focus on the simple things (without chargers or passwords) that make me happy.  Here's what I came up with.......

Happiness is......
making a quilt
a job well done
red nail polish (I did this today!)
a White Christmas

Happiness is.....
kids singing in the shower
a dog
an empty dishwasher

Happiness is.....
getting lost in a story
revisiting the classics
a garden in bloom

Happiness is........
the glow of the spotlight
a favorite song
a good night's sleep

Happiness is......
warm slippers
the pop of a champagne cork
comfy pj's
a new toothbrush

Happiness is......
a fresh start
a full moon
sand in your toes
fresh powder

Happiness is......
a rally cap
the crack of a bat
the snap of a glove
sliding into home

Happiness is........
a beautifully executed eschappe
the Snow Scene in Nutcracker
The Sound of Music
pointe shoes

Happiness is......
hot chocolate
Cold Dr. Pepper
Dark Chocolate
light and fluffy mashed potatoes

Happiness is......
playing cards with Grandma
watching Pa stir the soup
fishing with Pappy (my grandpa)
Sewing with Sudy (my grandma)

Happiness is.......
an electric train
a full bobbin
a bubble bath

Happiness is.....
soft sheets
starched white shirts
a brand new box of crayons
giving the perfect gift

Happiness is.....
a day at the lake
a crisp fall day

Happiness is.....
a spring thunderstorm
cold November Rain

Happiness is....
remembering the way it was
anticipating how it will be
learning along the way

Happiness is.....
a clean house
a fresh start
a new year
an adventure

Happiness is all around us.

PS-- If you have any tips on outsmarting itunes, do share.  That makes me happy too.
