Happiness Is...

- my husband turning on the little heater in the bathroom before I got out of bed this morning.  I didn't even feel him get up.  When my alarm went off and I patted his hand (a little good morning ritual) as I was getting out of bed he told me that he turned my heater on for me.  That warranted a quick snuggle and some kisses!

- eating a Reese's Cup that has been in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.  I love Reese's Cups room temperature or cold but having one cold for the first time in...let's see...forever, was great.  The old commercials state that there is no wrong way to eat one.  I disagree with that.  :-)  I like to eat the edges off and then, if I can, peel the chocolate off the top and bottom and then eat the peanut butter that is left.  Mmmm...so good.

 - Gizmo laying with me on the couch last night.  This might seem trivial to most cat owners because most cats love to lay with their humans.  Gizmo is not like that.  I know he's still a baby, but it's been very difficult to adjust to a more independent cat.  My Smokey loves to lay on me or next to me whenever she can.  Gizmo, on the other hand, is perfectly happy laying by himself.  We have tried to pick him up and put him on the couch with us and that lasts about 6 seconds before he's gone.  I was sitting on the couch and BJ was in the shower.  The Little Guy had gone to bed and I was on my laptop working on a digital scrapping project.  Gizmo jumped up and laid half on me and half on the couch.  He was just purring away and couldn't get enough love.  Then he really surprised me by climbing up on me (I had to push the computer further down my legs) so that he could lay on my chest and rub his face against my face.  It was so sweet.  And now I know that he really does love me.  :-)  He stayed for quite a while and I just let him.  There's something so great about talking to a kitten like he's a person.  My heart is melting just thinking about it.  Then BJ came downstairs and Gizmo stayed on the couch for about 30 more seconds.  He loves being pet(ted?), but on the floor.  He will lay down and roll over when he wants attention.  Anyway, it was really nice to bond with Gizmo like that.

- the sun is back and it's Friday!  And I have a short week next week!  We are off Thursday and I took Friday off.  Yay!

- when my sister posts pictures of my niece (whom I've never met) and my nephew on FB.  I love looking at how they've grown.  It's hard to believe that I can love 2 people that don't really know.  I haven't been around my nephew since he was 2 1/2 and like I said, I've never met my niece.  She's 2 1/2 and he's almost 9.  Wow...I'm getting old for sure.

Aww, how sweet of your hubby! My husband offered to turn on the pellet stove when he leaves for work so that it's warm in the house when I get up, but I told him I guess that can wait 'til real winter sets in. Don't want to get too spoiled before the real cold gets here :).
I'm so glad it's supposed to be nice this weekend - the rain yesterday was so depressing!

How about a husband that drapes a towel over the toilet seat so that it's not so cold when you wake up and sit down on it? ;)

And mmmm....reeses...
