Happiness Is...

- Corn on the cob. I love corn on the cob, especially since we learned how to boil fresh corn ourselves last summer. I’m not much of a culinary expert so when I finally figure out that I can do things on my own in the kitchen, I’m pretty happy about it.


- The heat advisory was lifted. I love the hot weather, but not so hot that it’s hard to breathe outside.

- Our lilies are blooming very nicely...the ones we transplanted from the front of our porch to around our mailbox. They look so nice with the coral colored drift roses that I can’t help but smile at them every time I turn onto our street.

- The LG is having a baseball game “under the lights” tomorrow night. Game time is not until 7:00 and there will be an announcer there to announce the starting lineup (which basically means all the kids will get to hear their name announced over the PA system). We are very excited and need to remember to bring the bug spray.

- My little Gizmo climbing up on the couch 2 different times last night to get loved on and to lay with me for a few minutes. He’s not a snuggle cat, as much as we tried to make him one, so these times when he seeks us out to lay with us on the couch are treasured moments.

- Getting on the scale at my appointment last week and being pleasantly surprised by the fact that I am 2 pounds lighter than the last time I was weighed a few months ago. Smaller scale numbers are enough to make anyone happy.

Drools, I love corn on the cob too. The butter dripping off it with salt sprinkled on it just the very thought makes me crave it.

My absolute favorite way to have corn (besides in cornbread) is on the cob, done on the grill in foil with butter and minced garlic. To die for!!!
I love night games in baseball :)

If you add some milk, butter and a bit of brown sugar to the water you boil the corn in, it gets even sweeter!
