Well, maybe I'm getting old. The older I get, the more happiness I get from the little things. I mean, really little things. Some of them are even...well... free. I'll give you an example. Last week, my son's girlfriend, Lindsey, sent me a Valentine card- one of the kind that kids buy for their classmates in school, and a bag of fun-size m&m's. She mailed them in an envelope with little dog stickers on it.
How sweet is that? (btw, check out her sweet blog, Adventures of the Cookie Girl.)
Snow days- highly enjoyable, and we don't have to pay anyone for the snow; it falls out of the sky!
Very cool wire-and-snow sculpture: absolutely free!
Another little pleasure is music- not always free, but I downloaded the MP3 of this, my current favorite song, for a thrifty 99 cents.
Maybe I am getting senile, but it seems to me that these little pleasures bring me more genuine smiles than almost anything. Something else that makes me smile: blogger friends who try to answer my questions!
