wearing my new Brigadier General's stars!!! Okay, I know I've mentioned this is several threads, but it's so cool.

What an awesome thread. (Note to self: make effort to reply to this thread often, and get back in the habit with the gratitude thread, even when you don't feel like it. Scratch that, ESPECIALLY when you don't feel like it.)

Seeing DH this morning, and his smile when he saw me. (That could be because I was bringing him breakfast, but I'm not going to think about that.)


My sick kitty cuddling and purring...and cuddling, and cuddling, and cuddling.

My sick kitty scrambling over any/everything to get to a piece of beef jerky.

The mouse we saw running around in DH's car engine...and the fact of naming him Frederick.

Listening to DH play wonderful music.

Singing along at the top of my lungs to Queen while driving.

Having dinner and great conversation with DH.

The thought of the bubble bath I'm about to take, with drink and book in hand.

what a great idea for a thread....
i agree.

over here... fun afternoon with oldest son, going out to lunch and (window)shopping for furniture and home furnishings. :)

best moment: hearing a bit of music in the background at chipotle that made both of us immediately think of a specific scene in the princess bride. two peas...pod. :D

A distant twinkly Manhattan skyline from the NJ parkway.

I didn't even realize I would be driving within viewing distance of it until I did.

The charming spot in an otherwise exhausting and pointless day.

So many things...

Seeing everything coated with a pretty layer of snow this morning...

chatting with my brother who has happily found the perfect home, within his price range, for him and his fiancee...

realizing how fortunate I am to have a solid, close relationship with my brother and sister...it is so cool to be able to talk openly to two people who have known me from childhood...

After a year of trying, to have finally made shortbread that has the right taste and consistency as the shortbread my mother used to make...not perfect...but oh so close!

Learning in a monthly group I attend that two members are celebrating 30 years of marriage tomorrow.

Reading so many nice stories on DF...Nurdrms promotion...Peaches enjoying her rye bread...Wonderwoman actively pursuing a new profession...J_Alexandra swooning over her dance lesson and social dancing...and many others...

Lots of smiles while wishing my sister a happy birthday…

And, as always, reading things on DF made me smile…to name a few:

Every time bjp22tango posts, I see the location Oregon…now why Oregon makes me smile, this I do not know, but it never fails…

Seeing the thread title “Emergency tango shoes” – kinda made me chuckle thinking “It’s an emergency!! I must dance tango!” I’m sure the thread covers something else, but certainly made me smile.

Syncopationator registering for another comp in case one was canceled – covering all bases to have the best chance to compete this weekend…made me smile to think of the passion/drive behind that…nice…
