Small Everyday Treats and Happinesses

lighting candles
coffee mugs made by local or student potters
stationary (one of the few things—in addition to the mugs and candles—that I collect)
browsing the bookstacks
wandering thrift stores and yardsales
a solitary walk outdoors
watering the flower garden with our happy blue watering can
organizing and discarding things
putting on nice face lotion
wearing lipstick
morning reading time (to myself!)
cereal with strawberries
listening to my children sing
feeling baby wendy kick in the womb
a good long nap

(I’ve been reading Gretchen Rubin’s Better Than Before and she recommends taking note of the small pleasures of your day. These are some of mine—what are yours?)
