It's the Little Things

Looking for the "little things" in my life, has helped me to slow down this season.


Finding a rose that is still blooming this late in the season.

Enjoying the smile from a stranger and returning it to another person.

Feeling the warmth of the sun on my face.

Finding a "lucky penny" and placing it in my shoe.

Turning on the lights for our Dickens Village and Christmas Tree.

Lighting the logs in the fireplace and curling up with the doggies.

Watching "The Bishop's Wife" for the ----well let's just say for many times.  Or "It's A Wonderful Life" for even more times!

Enjoying Holiday cards from friends and family.

Hanging a heart ornament that Mr. B and I bought in Taos almost 30 years ago.

And finding out that a friend of mine bakes 70-dozen cookies every year.....and I don't!!!


Yep you read that right.


Let's do the math....mmmm...that would be 8 hundred and 40 cookies!

I'm wondering how many pounds of buttah......?'s the little things and a good chuckle!
