Been around for almost a year. Didn't realize this 'everything but gardening' section existed. Here's a post that I started in a different forum a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away. There is no wrong answer. There are many right answers. You yourself may have many right answers. I have a ton of right answers. I hope that you post and read often...

Happiness is a home cooked dinner made by mom.

A good book.
Sounds silly but on a cold day like today having heated seats on the new car made me pretty happy.

Heated seats are not silly. I was eventually going to add heated seats to the thread...

Happiness is driving to work in 9 degree weather, turning on the heater, having a very strong odor of burning rubber come from the vents, worry about your car catching on fire, driving another 3 miles, having the semi that's half a mile in front of you pull over, seeing the semi have a flat tire, passing the semi, having the odor of burning rubber go away, AND realizing that the odor came from the semi and there's nothing wrong with your car.
Everyone has something they can teach; everyone has something they can learn.

Good health. Being mentally alert. Living in a safe, secure environment. Lots of life experience. Having a positive attitude. Plenty of good things to look forward to. Money? Friends.

I think it was Rousseau who wrote about a time when he and his best friend were floating out in the ocean on a moonless night. Complete silence, completely black. A sense of being alone but knowing your friend was nearby.

Speaking of dogs...Happiness is when your senior dog takes a liking to the new addition Lovey dubby
I was worried when I got gifted the new pup, wasn't really in the plans for few more years as Winston didn't take well to other dogs after Harper died. He is getting better and better everyday and is even acting younger than ever before. My heart is happy! nodding

Happiness is when your feral cat shows up after being AWOL for two cold nights, and is talking loudly about how hungry he is. It makes my morning every day that he is waiting for me.
Now I would be happier if he would use the shelter I made for him.

Remembered something that made me happy over the weekend....

Probably only composters will understand this one.

Happiness is having neighbors deliver leaves to your house for you to shred to use as mulch around your oak trees.

Bliss is finding out that 2 of the cubic yard bags of leaves are already shredded!!!!!!
