1. Fires in the fireplace - it's so cold here now that just the sight of the flames and the crackling warm me up.
2. Vacation pictures and the memories they bring back.
3. Internet service and all the things that can be accomplished with the click of a mouse. Melinda is coming home in the new year for a visit and we got her ticket reserved today.
4. Time to enjoy our sweet granddaughters. They are such little people with personalities already. I'm so glad I get to enjoy them regularly.
5. Christmas shopping - finding just the right thing for the special people in my life.
6. Christmas cookies and the whole process of baking. Creating in my kitchen is a happy job for me.
7. Finishing things that have been on the back burner for a long time. What a great feeling!
8. Clean countertops - why do they never last very long?!!
