+ getting things done
+ having awesome little brothers who are more than willing than to remove the flock? herd? pod? of lady bugs that have decided to infest my bedroom.
+ Happy daffodils (they're my favorite flower. ;)
+ good conversations with good friends
+ it's almost spring, which means we might start seeing the sun! (!!!!!)
+ electricity and hot water. (our power was out last night, which always make me thankful for lamps and showers. ;)
+ coffee dates
+ Happy books, like "Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good," by Jan Karon and "My Life in France" by Julia Child.
+ "The Lord's loving kindness indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. The lord is my portion, says my soul, therefore I have hope in Him." Lamentations 3:22-24
+ Ice cream!
+ Cuddling with Lydia when she's still sleepy and teaching her to give hugs.
+ "Greater is He living in me than he who is in the world." (Paraphrase of 1 John 4:4)
+ "Never miss a good chance to shut up." Will Rogers
+ Roots Run Deep by Jadon Lavik
+ baby bunnies. (so far my sister has had a couple doe's have babies in the past few weeks, and they are pretty darn cute.)
+ watching master and commander with my little brother a couple days ago. (It's cool that he's old enough to really hang out with, but also, he's turning 18 this year!??)
+ the wind outside. (so it knocked the electricity out for a while, but I love it anyway. Makes me think of Goldendale.)
+ having fun with my sister while shopping. (she's a good one to take with you when you're not supposed to buy any more clothes. ;)
+ working on some piano pieces again. it's been far too long, but it's cool that my fingers and mind still remember how to take sheets of music and make music happen.
