Pet Delights (Simple Pleasures)

To balance out Nicole's, (Cornflake girl), recent pet peeve thread, I thought it might be good to list the little things that we enjoy.
As a side note, it makes me wonder about our true nature when after searching, I didn't find an antonym for pet peeves that was in common usage.

Some little things I enjoy. In no particular order than what occurs to me off the top of my head.

Lounging around with my dog Willy. He's a great snuggler.
Beer!
Making,(and eating), ice cream. I could go on about food ad infinitem.
The smell of the air in Hawaii. There's something intangible about it's fragrance.
Real maple syrup, especially on pancakes that are delicately crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and on ice cream. OOps, more food. Must be getting near lunch time.
Spring and summer.
Fall and winter can have delights as well.
Whenever I manage to capture a picture exactly the way I envisioned it.
Whenever I get a neat result on a shot that I wasn't expecting.
Unusual body mutations.

More later... maybe

Re: Pet Delights

Sitting out under a canopy of stars in the mountains.

Playing cards in a tent using a gas lantern for light while rain gently falls on the canvas.

Remembering her birth when my older daughter's first act was to wrap her tiny hand around my finger.

My younger daughter laying our birthday decorations for me last Thursday.

My wife.

Easter.

The National Anthem, especially during the Olympics.

Solving a nagging problem.

Getting a good critique from a tough reviewer (c'mon...admit it: y'all do too).

Spending time alone in the woods and my camera, praying with my eyes (to quote Dewitt Jones).

And, John, I think there is a phrase for it: joy.

Re: Pet Delights

Memories. Like when I was a much younger man and worked the night shift, waking to my two babies sitting at my bed, watching and waiting for me to wake.
The day my first, my son was born. The day we brought our adopted daughter home. Giving thanks for being an old sentimental fool.
And going from the sublime; poppy seed kolaches, red wine, apple pie and strudel.

Re: Pet Delights

"steep & deep", ie 1st tracks (skiing) in new powder snow on a cold, crisp, blue sky day in the mountains.
Any day flyfishing on a classic chalkstream...if I can match the hatch!
Hikes in the mountains, especially on an Indian Summer kinda day in late September.
Good meatloaf....and 1 particular potato salad recipe.
My 2 sons and their families (4 grandkids)....keeps me grounded and with a sense of continuity.
Any time a NY ball team loses (originally from Boston area)!

Re: Pet Delights

My delights:

The sun. Whether it's warm or cold, I just want to see the sun.
My mom. My memories are bitter-sweet. The bitter is because she died too young. The sweet is for all the rest of the time I got to be with her.
My daughter. She's crazy and she drives me crazy, but it's easy to love her, unconditionally.
Vacations, traveling. If I get the chance to see the entire world, I will do it.
Music. I can't help but move when I hear music. Neither can my daughter.
The piano. I had to take a break from playing the piano for some years, but we just bought one, and I'm so excited to start playing again.
Mountains and wilderness. It's where I go to recharge. I don't get there often enough.
My camera. It's my main form of expression these days.
Writing. It's my other form of expression.
Reading. It's almost more an addiction than just a delight.
Sewing. I've wanted to sew since I was a teenager. I'm getting a late start, but I'm finally there.
