3. A child catching bubbles and laughing as they try.
4. Men sitting on the park bench talking and laughing while their wives think they are exercising.

5. The first snowfall.

7. Succeeding and being surprised.
8. Watching a good movie while eating popcorn.
9. Laughing until I cry.

1. The true feeling of caring that my children show for each other and for others.
2. A long, quiet soak in the tub after everyone in the house has settled for the night.
3. A spur of the moment anything fun.

Horseback riding on the beach, eating chocolate chip cookies warm from the oven with a cold glass of milk, Christmas morning. By the way, I have never been horseback riding on the beach, but it looks like it would be fun. I have, however, eaten LOTS of choc chip cookies with milk.

I love living where I can enjoy all the seasons. The same temperature all the time can get very boring.

Sitting on my lanai, with the snow falling outside and my fireplace making us warm and cozy is the best, especially at Xmas with the tree all lit.

1. Not that old, but have to start with waking up each day. And doing it with a sense of hope.
2. Putting a smile on someone's face and knowing that I did it.

3. The endorphin release from laughter.
4. Making others laugh.

5. Playing with (other?) cats.
6. Plotting my next art project.

7. Being out under the sky on any sunny day in Pittsburgh.
8. Feeling at peace at the end of a day. And thinking about things I like. Thanks, Mia.

P.S. Not so crazy about Billy Idol, Benji.
