tinajo said...

Oh, several things! :-)

My kids slept until 8 AM, which they rarely do - so I feel so rested! :-)

My Advent photo of our dog, makes me giggle everytime I look at it on my blog! :-D I´m easily amused, but still - she looks too funny!

I´m making gingerbread cookies with my boys today. So nice! :-)

We´re going Santa hunting in the forest this evening, in the dark with flashlights... Very exciting for the kids! :-)

I love those gloves, they are gorgeous and girly! :-)

My Passport to Style said...

I love this game, your marshmallow pink glove's would make any gal want to skip. Throwing an early morning snowball at my husband makes me giggle, we don't often get snow in this part of the world. I guess your Molly will be feeling right at home in the UK right now! Sharon Hugs. xxx

Oh Koralee, you and I are cut out of the same mold......I GET SO HAPPY WITH LITTLE THINGS TOO! Oh, those mints...those are so wonderful....and your tooth dearest...are you back on a HOT TEA SCHEDULE NOW? Well, you know what makes me happy? Sitting in my workshop glittering; (I literally get tingly all over), reading, (believe it or not) THE FRENCH DICTIONARY, watching my twinkle lights go off in my homemade little theatre and a cup of tea with lots of milk. Ahhh....what joy!

HAVE A GRAND SUNDAY!! LOVE TO YOU, Anita

BEAR's Mom said...

this morning i am filled with joy
sitting in my craft room, visiting blog friends
seeing all my paper, ribbons, buttons
just waiting to become Christmas cards
glitter on my red plaid flannel nightgown
sipping a cup of Keurig coffee
BEAR's head rested on my foot
and listening to the soft snore of my love in the next room ~

HUGS to you my SWEETEST friend
~victoria~

Martina said...

Seeing gorgeous pink things always makes me happy! Along with the long, late breakfast we just had, snow, sunshine and a day without any hurry!

Bad Taste Toast said...

I totally agree with Murdock and the quote about small treats :)
Your new gloves are so cute!
What made me happy today is/was being inside while it's snowing heavily outside, having a cup of hot sage-honey-tea and wearing my pyjamas all day :)

i.ikeda said...

our Sunday pancake tradition brought me joy today, especially since I made chocolate chip pancakes. (^_^)

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

I find joy in the fact that I'm beginning to feel like dancing again. I have been under the weather for two days. First my little ones and then it attacked me too. Your gloves are darling!
Much love for the new week, Koralee xxxxx

Watching my 2 littles jump up and down when they saw Santa and Mrs. Claus walking down the street at our small town Chritmas parade. They squealed with delight when they came over and talked with them.

That pink is such a lovely color; a treat for the eyes.

I found my happiness on youtube today, listening to / watching videos from some of my favorite bands from my teenage years.

What made me Happy today? After having my bath i wallked into my son's room (he's 11) and his bed was made...even his sock monkey was placed perfectly. It got better...walked into my bedroom and my bed was made! Pillows and quilt all perfectly set. How wonderful is that?

So many things gave me joy today! The woodpecker in the garden, my husband making dinner so I didn't have to do it which I appreciated so much because now I could have some very needed rest finally, my daughter's happy face when she saw the presents Sinterklaas had brought her overnight, the kids laughing,... so many little things to be joyful about!
Have a great week Koralee!

Love the pink gloves. They remind me when I was in elementary school a friend game me a pair of white angora gloves (always wore mittens before that)and I cherished them till they had holes in them! I am looking forward to getting together with family Sunday for a meal before one brother heads back to Indonesia.

Maria said...

I love the quote too, Koralee! Perfect for all of us who love our cup of tea or coffee {and a little treat}

Marilyn said...

For sure the small treats are necessary. Wonderful pink gloves and mints. What brought me pleasure on Saturday was visiting the country, drinking hot chocolate, an amazing antique mall. Today making scones, tart shells, and a bevy of gingerbread men and doves dancing across my kitchen counter.
