Always Pleasant Little Things

When I’m feeling down, I turn to one or more of my always pleasant little things — stuff I can do or experience or get that cheers me up a bit. I’d like to share some of them with you.

  1. The perfectly scented new bar of soap, body butter, body spray, etc.
  2. A pair of fluffy socks for walking around the house
  3. A cashmere sweater that I got on sale
  4. Leisurely sit-down bath
  5. Listening to Billie Holiday while driving on an autumn afternoon
  6. Nail polish that doesn’t chip for five days and the free time to aply it
  7. The sound of rain rustling the leaves
  8. Looking at my closet after organizing the clothes by color
  9. Taking off my bra at the end of a long day
  10. True autumn and spring weather — neither cold nor hot
  11. Cheesecake Factory strawberry shortcake
  12. Young plants peeking out of the ground in spring
  13. Sliding into freshly changed linens after a warm shower
  14. Exfoliating gloves
  15. Moisturizing gloves
  16. The perfect-enough pair of jeans 
  17. Snuggling down under the covers when I’m really sleepy and don’t have to get up early the next morning
  18. The first four and a half minutes of Keith Jarrett’s “Solara March”
  19. Peeping out the window at my first car
  20. Almost anything consisting primarily of peanut butter
