I don’t have a very big life with a lot of stuff. I haven’t been on a plane or out of the country in a long time. My little life is a happy one.
I laid out in the sun, for the first time this season, last weekend. I put the flannel sheets away, until next fall, on the same day. When I wriggled under the mid-weight sheets that night, I was happy.
At around the same time as our anniversary, we bought a new vacuum cleaner. I hope it’s the last one we have to buy. Every purchase I make is with the assumption that the item will last the rest of my life. Anyhow, it has a very long attachment, which allowed me to rid my home of hidden dust. Tidiness leads to happiness.
I cleaned the window above the kitchen sink and all of the things in it, things given to me by the people I love, some of them among the departed. When I look at those pretty things, from the people I love, while I’m doing dishes, I am happy.
I called my sister and the Red Haired Philosopher at 4:30 this morning. The Red Haired Philosopher took the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) for registered nurses at 2 a.m. They were both happy, which made me happy.
My husband asked me to scratch his back so I hugged him and kissed him first while he couldn’t get away from me. He doesn’t know it but it made him happy to make me happy.
Here I am, the windows are all open and the birds are singing up a storm outside on Hippy Hill. I’ll be working hard in just a minute or two and I’ll be happy to do it because I know how lucky I am.
***9:24A- Just in! The Red Haired Philosopher passed the NCLEX!!! Yippee!
