I am looking for reasons
It is the first day of the second month of the year
My wife and I are off from work
I am reading stories and poems online
My wife is doing some baking
She is making homemade pretzels and mini cup cakes
I am the official taste tester
That could be one reason why I am happy
She is now cooking a roast beef for supper
I throw some dirty laundry in the wash
In between we joke around
Turning the middle of our kitchen into a ballroom dancing floor
We pretend and make up our own dances
Pulling each other close when the music is slow
Swinging our arms when the beat picks up
We both can't sing or dance
But here we can do both
Getting exercise without even thinking
Now we wind down our day
With a little t.v.
I guess it's making fun out of the little things
That makes me the happiest of all

Nice to read about people enjoying themselves. I am just happy that each one of my days is quiet and uneventful and I can get my work done.

Kari Poulsen There are so many days that I haven't learned how to describe. I keep trying to bring out my thoughts in my head to the paper. The miles in between I am trying to figure out. Thank you for reading and enjoying. Nellieanna Hay Fun in the sun during the summertime and winter fun can be running in the warm house out of the cold. Both have their own special pleasures and joys. Thanks so much for sharing and caring. It is one thirty in the morning and just getting ready for bed. It is our early night. Six thirty comes early.

You describe such a happy day! I guess life is what you make of it. :)

Yes, as Michael says, "A merry heart does good like a medicine." You and your wife were enjoying the simple pleasures of living! And why shouldn't one have a merry heart all the time. Living itself is a wonderful gift. One realizes it more and more as it continues, especially if one's good attitude and happy relationships fill it with joy! Keep it up!
I love your poem about t!

Michael-Milec The feeling stays along time. Even days before it is replaced by another feeling. I am hoping the new feeling is even stronger and lovelier than the first. Thank you so much for spending your time reading one of my stoems (story/poem).
