    A glass of wine enjoyed while sitting in front of the chicken run, with your little kids playing in the yard.
    Can it get better?
     

  2. Hi! Sitting in the yard with birds running all around and everyone is fed and NO ONE expects anything from me for the rest of the evening --- that's the part of the day I look forward to. I'm usually to tired to 'appreciate' the time.

    LoL, I was thinking wine and chicken chillin' too. Nice way to wind down a hectic day.Ditto on the *done for the day* caretaker role too. I am glad when meals are done,and I can just relax.

    I like getting off work and looking in my front, left pocket, for my list and there's nothing on it I have to do today. I can go home and just... not.

    Pulling into my driveway after a long drive home seeing the light on in the picture window-walking through the back door, seeing HER sitting in the chair with that big welcoming, loving smile on her face. For me it doesn't get any better than that.

    For me, when I was married, having dinner being prepared, when I walked in the door, made me feel very loved and happy.

    Sharing good food with a good friend and both of you laughing till you cry.

    Tea time with your best friend

    Being on horseback with no particular place to go, just riding.

    Puppy breath

    Flowers for no reason

    Really good dark chocolate with a nice red wine.

    The fresh smell of rain.

    A long and winding road and a full tank of gas.
