It's the Little Things

We woke up this morning to thunder, lightning, and heavy rains.  I so wanted to just turn my back to the window, snuggle up and go back to sleep.  But today was the 1st day with the WOW ladies at Barnes & Noble and I sure didn't want to miss it eventho the bed was really calling my name.  I have a sleeping problem, which I will probably whine about now and in the future, and I was sooo tempted to crawl back in bed because sleep had finally come after a rather long night without. 

As I got dressed I wondered how many other ladies would feel the same as I and crawl back into bed, not coming to B&N.   There were 7 of us which made for lively discussions and lots of laughter.  The empty container is just one of the pleasures I find on these Wednesdays....B&N Tiramisu, but the most pleasure is the spirit of sisterhood that encompasses our group.   We have decided to pick a theme to focus on for the week, we began the summer with Random Acts of Kindness RAK, given and received.  We shared thoughts, but something that stood out for me was those acts that we do that no-one knows about....another word for it is integrity.  Doing something because you know it's right, not because you have to, but because you want to.  We are continuing again this week with RAK because, as one of the lady's said, "it makes you think about doing for others."  PS....I tried to pay for the car behind me in the drive-thru at McDonald's and I totally confused the cashier, the transaction got so messed up that she had to call for a manager to straighten it out.  I may have been nice to the person behind me, but I sure played havoc on the poor cashier.  Have you given or received a RAK lately??

Little things make me happy.   Putting a cup of cold coffee in the microwave to reheat and being able to touch the cup handle without it burning to the point of blisters on the fingers.  Why is it that some cups that are "microwavable" come out with their handles so freakin' hot and others are just fine??  hummm, one of the mysteries of life. 

Finding something as cute as this kitty cat topiary really makes me happy.  I don't know who thinks up things like this, but they must have a cute gene in them.  It totally brightens my day.  What brightens your day? 

And finally, roses, they make me really happy, especially one as beautiful as this.  This is NOT in my garden, I don't do well with roses except for the kind that requires very little tending.  This was taken at our local garden center.  Whenever I visit I always come home with a plant or a flower or a cute little something from their gift shop and always several great images on my camera.  Have a happy day.

Until next time.....


  1. I love that you have a group that meets.

    How did you start that? Were they old friends or new??

    I try and pay for the car behind me (at McDs) the whole month of December LOL and you are right sometimes they get confused... Oh well...they know who i am now LOL

    Great inspiration darlin.


  2. What brightens my day, you ask:
