Things that make me happy

(in no particular order)


The snow that fell yesterday.

Walking to get the mail in the snow.

The package that arrived with the circular needle organizer that was so very desperately needed.

Sitting with husband in front of lighted tree.

Dinner at the buffet at our favorite Indian restaurant, where we are so well known that they bring us our glasses of water without asking and brought husband extra naan when it was hot out of the oven.

My Oklahoma knitting friends. Thanks for making a move to a new home so much easier. (For photos of our Knitting Guild Meeting, check out the blog at Gourmet Yarn.

Some of these new friends have blogs, too: check out Addicted to Knitting and Knitters Wonderland over there in the sidebar.

Wilbur has had a cold, but his sneezes seem to be fewer and further between. This makes me happy. (Although the sneezes were sort of cute).

Hiding presents for husband in my secret spot in the closet.

A satisfying supply experience at Holy Apostles', OKC, whereupon I was also introduced by a parishioner to the new Bread Company souffles.

Finding the Christmas CDs. The first edition of "A Very Special Christmas." (Still can't find the Nakai tape).

Oh, yeah, the Incarnation and all that Good News! The reading from Luke last Sunday, which becomes more beautiful and layered with meaning over time. Singing Advent hymns. Realizing more and more the power of this God who was willing to come among us.

What's making you happy these days? Posted by Picasa

What Indian restaurant is your favorite?

We go to Taj Buffet out on NW Expressway. The food is pretty good and we like their friendly atmosphere. (Also we enjoy the fact that half of their sign is burnt out at the moment, meaning we dined at the Taj Fet last night, which sounded like something out of Star Wars.)

We like all 3 Indian restaurants that we've discovered in OKC, but Taj is our regular hangout.

Aren't all knitting needles supposed to be tossed randomly into the left-hand drawer of my mother's old coffee table?

Well, they were in a tangle in the bottom of my knitting basket, does that count?

Spending time with Emily makes me happy. Especially when she is open to crazy ideas, like driving around North St. Louis for 30 minutes on the same lost path we've been before!
