Here's my list of the 'little things' that make me happy.
#2 - SPACE!! I have SPACE for my books. Hello dear Preston & Child! Louisa May, Llewellyn, Ms. Byatt and beloved Homer - how I've missed you.
#3 - See this? It's a hallway closet. Yep - a whole entire closet devoted to those many little coats, hats, gloves, scarfs and even...my vaccum cleaner. Sigh! We've never had one before and it's lovely!
#4 - In my kitchen I have a BUILT IN garbage can AND AND AND a 2ND BUILT IN garbage can (or recycle bin - whichever you prefer). Luxury!
#5 - This tile may be hideously ugly - but it's the tile for my very own, never have had since kids...master bathroom!!...moment of silence...The downside is...well...take a look at the tile. But it's our own! Our very own!!
#6 - We have pets. I didn't know this house came with rabits, hunderds of chipmunks and...my very own groundhog! Can you believe it? No more waiting on Puxatony Phil - we'll just look out our backyard window.
We call him Rocky. He makes an apperance almost every evening. He eats my weeds (yes!), looks cute and likes to burrow in the hole in our backyard.
#7 - Just look at this countertop. Not a single groove for flour to moulder away and turn to bleh. My bread making days are here again!
#8 - My amazing husband. Isn't he fabulous!? He put ALL our beds together. Lifted all the heavy boxes and most of the medium ones. He fixes shower spouts, curtains, blinds, fences, railings, dishwashers, tables, pictures, kids playsets, - the list is endless. I'm SO blessed to be married to this man. And I'm even more lucky that he can fix anything with his drill and tools.
