I love this thread! :D

Accidentally putting a little mint flavoring in my coffee and realizing that it actually tastes nice. ;)) It reminds me of an autumn chill in the air, except in a drink!

Cutting my own hair and doing a good enough job that I don't need to hide out for a couple of months. :P (I don't really enjoy going to the hairdresser and I like saving money where I can, but I was concerned that this attempt at frugality would prove to be a bridge too far.... ;)))

Ordering a shiny new book. :D

Listening to awe-inspiring music. :ymdaydream:

The first breath of Autumn. :)

Before I start the list, I do have to mention I love the idea of this thread. :)

Hm, let's see what I can think of right now...

Of course, a new book
Rereading/rewatching Narnia (Big surprise there :p )
Being able to share things I love, noticing they're genuinly interested
Genuine compliments
The love of my pets
Positive reactions towards my art/anything I've made
A nice drink/food with a show I like
Scented candles
A cup of coffee in the morning
Lots and lots of flowers and green!


...a lot of little things bring me joy, I could go on for ages ;;)

It's been one of those weeks, so just drinking BRCC coffee makes my day so much better. :) And watching the Cardinals' walkoff earlier today. B-)

I feel blessed that when I read the water meters today, the last one, I opened it at just the right to see the black widow spider living in the meter box before I stuck my hand in to brush the dirt off the meter to read the numbers. Wasn't there last month, and it ran away after I saw it, and the meter was clear enough that I just had to shine the flashlight on it to read it without getting any closer to the box.

Oh, this! I often think that being so tired your brain feels like a cottonball can honestly add a lot when listening to some music genres. ;)) I've been compiling a "Tired But Not Sleepy" playlist for a while now just for those times.

(Welcome to NarniaWeb, by the way!)
