Ahhh or Feel Good Moments

I was happy tagged last week by Debra St. John at Acme Authors Link. Since I've already done a happy blog and tagged off, today will be a variation, with no tags involved.

Today is about my feel good moments, which I call Ahhh moments. They're kind of like happy, but not as deep. Here are they are:

1. Seeing a cute baby or puppy.

2. Having a teller or supermarket register open up after I've been waiting in a long line.

3. Sitting down after standing for a while.

4. Stepping into where it's warm after being out in the cold, or vice versa, stepping into a cool place after being out in the heat.

5. Feeling the shower water on my back.

6. Getting out early from work on a day before a holiday.

7. Thinking up a fun topic for my blog.

8. Landing a book signing at a store. Hand in hand with that is selling one of my books.

9. Taking off my boots or shoes and putting on my slippers at home.

10.Having a cool drink when I'm thirsty.

Now it's your turn. What are your Ahhh moments? Do you share some of mine? Remember, they don't have to be deep, just feel good moments. Please share.

    I'll ditto the slippers and getting to sit down for awhile.
    MY Ahhh moment would be feeling the heater warm up the room after working all night long in the cold(frozen food) Relaxing at a nice blog with my coffee next to the puter' Unwinding with a good movie while eating lunch/dinner/breakfast? After working all night I don't know what to call my one meal? Getting an extra hours worth of sleep is the best Ahhh in the universe

  2. Being able to sleep in on a cold, gloomy winter day! ahhhhhh......

  3. Thanks for playing, Morgan! One of my 'ahhh' moments is sleeping in on a summer weekday and being able to hang out in my jammies for most of the morning.

  5. Morgan,
    I'll go with all ten of yours and add: getting off the stationary bicycle after pedaling for an hour; and stepping into the sunshine on a mild, beautiful morning.

  6. My Ahh moments would be actually enjoying an hour of uniterrupted reading. (Hard to acquire with the twins running amuck.)

    Spending time with my mom and dad steeped in 'adult' conversation. Who thought I would live for those moments when I was younger?

  7. ah yes, I do have some of yours :) and one of my other favs is, walking into a place like Panera bread or Starbucks where the smells are those that make you go ahhhhh

    Sitting down with a cool drink after a workout...

    Having a back massage when my muscles are sore...

    Finding the perfect ending to a story...

    Seeing my dog every morning...

    I'd say a warm bubble bath is my favorite.

    Sitting down at the end of the day to watch a movie with your hubby.

  14. 1. Slipping into clean sheets and knowing I don't have to be up early.
    2. Making my husband or son laugh. (The other day, my son actually said, "I wish I had a video camera to record you sometimes.")
    3. Scratching my mare's neck while she lays her nose against my chest - it's the definition of contentment.
