These days…
The smell of leaves burning.

The sound of the train chugging by at the end of my street.

A day when I can squeeze in a nap.

Ticking down the days until the end of the semester. I taught NINE classes this semester. Forking bananas.

Having a good sneeze. Having a glass of cool water.

The potato I was just fishing out of the pot didn’t fall back into the scalding hot water like those other two fuckers did.

A day I can sleep in with no obligations.

Waking up with no symptom after getting my Shingles vaccine.

Hot baths

Reading in front of my gas fire in cold weather

Well now, would you look at that, what a lovely pleasant start to a thread, a small joy indeed :-)

Having a good shit. You know the ones. Those that shoot out and plop into the water like a torpedo, and leave almost no residue.

@ucme I woke the neighborhood up.

rebbel's avatar

I have to put the rabbit food on the counter, for else the spiders will eat it.

@rebbel Eww! That pantoffle thing is your foot? Weird, Dutchman!

rebbel's avatar

My feet are in the spiders.
Weird, maybe, warm, for sure.
My girlfriend didn’t allow me to wear them in the street…..

Playing with my cat.

KNOWITALL's avatar

I agree with @chyna, nothing like period of peace with a loving dog or cat by your side.

Clean sheets
An unread book
Petting sessions with my dog
Looking out the window at nature
The changing seasons

janbb's avatar

^^ Going to the library and taking out a whole bunch of unread books!

ucme's avatar

My turn…

I have many small joys as I see it in most things & so what if that makes me Mary Poppins lol
One that immediately comes to mind though is the look & smell of my dog Buddy’s coat immediately after his bath when he’s shook himself senseless lol.
He’s a short haired border collie & the contrast of the black & white really pops & shines.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@ucme Mary Poppins, gosh you’d be so good at it!

Are you always happy and upbeat @ucme? Such a jolly good fellow here. ;D

ucme's avatar

@KNOWITALL I know right, up with brolly & tally-ho…what what!
Well not all the time, that would be insufferable, but yeah, you know me…happy as a pig in shite :D

KNOWITALL's avatar

@ucme Bully for you, old chap. Must be nice to be lord of your castle and all you survey. Ha! Tetched by the wee fairies were ye?

Yes…(twirling mustache) ....fetch my pistols, Jeeves, we duel at dawn. What what!

ucme's avatar

Hahaha, oh how I wish we could meet & talk like that irl…would be spiffing.
Afterwards we could share a picnic of cucumber sandwiches with lashings of ginger beer…hoorah!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@ucme Yes, it surely would. : )

Its ironic you mention cucumber sandwiches specifically, too. Love em.

KNOWITALL's avatar

Get a kitchen!

ucme's avatar

We have staff in that!

KNOWITALL's avatar

@janbb What are other english dishes I’m forgetting?

@ucme Beef strips or even lean burger, onions, garlic, etc..with a cream of mushroom or beef. Add peas or any veggies. Potatoes on top, tots, or hash brown, or mashed. As many layers as you wish. Top with cheese. Bake. Winter heavy casserole. One spoon and you’re full. Lol

ucme's avatar

@KNOWITALL I feel like I put a few pounds on just reading that!
