Terrific Tuesday Small Pleasures

*The Lady Bug is always at the top of the list.  She giggles.  She reaches for me.  She rolls around and is becoming quite mobile.  She's at such a fun age.

*Baxter jumping up on my lap for some snuggle time. His little sighs melt my heart!

*Popcorn balls.  The Mr. has made popcorn balls several times in the last few weeks.  I forgot how much I love them.They have become one of my favorite "desserts."  Makes me feel like I'm 12 again.

*Speaking of age 12--Ponytails!  When I can't figure out anything else to do, my hair is long enough to pull into a ponytail.  I'm kind of old for them, but it is nice to have the option.

*Parents who volunteer to bring in food to feed the kids at play rehearsals.  (And why do teenagers always seem to be starving?!)

*On another play note--students who never miss a cue and know every line.  OK.  That might be all one of them, but at least there is one!  He's setting the bar.

*A refund from my health insurance company.  This is the first refund in at least 15 years. There are some happy teachers and staff in Tiny Town. It was an unexpected windfall.

Glad for the little things today!

Looks like a good list! You are so blessed to live in the same town as your Lady Bug! My Grandma used to make popcorn balls. What a treat! Good luck with the play and all those lines.

mmmm.... popcorn balls!!!! i've been having some stomach problems the last few days and popcorn (just plain, unsalted) is about all i can manage to eat during the day... and popcorn balls sound soooooo yummy!!! they always remind me of halloween and i don't know the last time i had one! i should try to make some sometime (or better yet, get a deal like you and convince the hubby to make them ... he's not a big fan of popcorn, so i'm not sure he'll go for it!! ;)
