    I have so many small things I enjoy, but I'll name a few:

    Putting on new socks for the very first time

    Morning pee is the best feeling piss ever!

    Putting clothes on straight out of the dryer on a cold day

    Just relaxing on a cold night with friends having coffee

    and mornings on a cold cloudy or rainy day.


    When I lived in Texas, my friends and I would occasionally go out on some huge ranch that had some hills mountains and plateaus. We'd hike them at about 10 at night and when we'd get to the top we'd lay there for hours looking at the stars... with no cellphone reception! It was amazing, minus the coyotes and other things near by. We all had guns and knives with us all the time so it was okay. But I'd leave there feeling refreshed and relaxed all the time.

    What are some simple things you enjoy?

    Before gas prices cost you your testicles...I used to LOVE taking road trips. I absolutely love driving and find it so relaxing just to be on the open road with nothing in front of you. However, now, I can't stop looking at the gas gauge which makes the entire drive suck now.

    Rain, especially when it drizzles on a sunny day.

    Morning sunlight.

    Bunching up on a cold morning and sitting outside.

    Cookies and Chocolate. icon_razz.gif

    Finding a good book in the secondhand bookstore.

    Putting on new shoes for the first time.

    Someone else massaging my scalp (mom used to do that icon_razz.gif)

    Letting the cat play with my fingers (Though that gets a bit ouchy at times, LOL)

    Watching the night sky when out drinking with my friends. icon_razz.gif

    Listening to my music at full volume so I can sing along without worrying about being off-key. XD

    Inspecting tidal pools and freshwater ponds.

    A good comedy (preferably with romance in it :d)

    Hot showers.

    And finally... torching villages and torturing cattle. icon_twisted.gif

    A bonfire on the beach, the smell of Gain laundry detergent, the sound of waves crashing on the shore in the morning or at night when the beach is empty, doggie kisses, falling asleep holding my hubby or being held by him

    Listening to music while watching sports on TV (sound muted) and drinking a glass of good wine.

    Reading a really good book that totally absorbs me mentally and emotionally.

    Learning about something new that I find interesting.

    Playing sports and winning.

    I totally agree with you!! I was thinking about putting road trips but I thought to myself, "I don't really do those anymore I try to drive as little as possible!"

    Riding a twisty road really fast on my motorcycle.

    Sleeping with all the windows open on our camper trailer, and snuggling up to my naked partner to keep warm.

    Kayaking on a mountain lake.

    Eating fresh sliced tomatoes sprinkled with salt & pepper.

    A long shower after getting all sweaty and dirty from some outdoor activity.

    Taking a late shower and slipping between fresh bed sheets.

    Swimming naked.

    Watching the sunset as I sip a gin martini, sitting in the attached screen room of our camper trailer

    Petting a kitten as it purrs.

    Rolling on the lawn as a goofy dog tries to lick my face.

    The smell of fresh grass right after I've mown that lawn.

    Actually, this list could be endless. I just love life.

    At my stage of the game, I find a good BM very relaxing and rewarding!

    Also, sorting my twist ties and rubber bands by size and color and putting thme in zip loc bags at the end of a long work week is AWESOME!!

    Refilling my softsoap dispensers really does it for me too!!

    Getting in bed with freshly laundered sheets, especially if it's a cold night and I have my down comforter. Mmmmmmmm.

    A hot cup of coffee in the morning.

    Walking outside on a fall afternoon, with a haze in the air.

    Buying shoes.

    Drinking a mimosa or a madras, with my friends, sitting outside at our favorite little restaurant on the marina near my house.

    And fuck it! ROADTRIPS!! If I wanna do it, I'm not gonna let gas prices ruin it for me!
