I really, really love it when....

  • I find a better response/way
  • I find a new food item that is medicinal
  • It is quiet and so am I
  • It rains gently at night
  • The jasmine flowers and fills garden with fragrance

    I ask a question to myself and know the right answer already.

    There's a brief rain shower, then the sun comes out and everything smells great and the air is so fresh! :)

    One of the radio stations just happens to play my favorite music, completely serendipitously.

    Low-carb cheesecake turns out better than you expected :lol:
    Every morning after fresh snow when the air is never more fresh or clear (even if your nostrils freeze shut while you enjoy it)

    I've never heard of this! Where do you get it?
    If you stop and think about it, the main thing about cheesecake is the cream cheese, and the sour cream topping; it's all cream and a bit of protein. The only carbs are whatever sugar you add to the cream cheese, and then the graham cracker crust. Take away the crust and you still have the yummy cheesy/creamy part.

    Oops. Didn't mean to hijack the flow of the topic. :blush: Pardon my cheesecake enthusiasm.

    I have a few days off work and it's cold and raining outside. So I have an excuse not to go for a long strenuous walk. Opting instead to light a fire and curl up under a blanket reading a good book. Which atm is 'the Tibetan book of living and dying'. While cuddling the puppy of course!

    puppy says hello!

    PUPPY!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

    @Dakini my husband and I are both doing low carb right now to lose excess weight, and yesterday was his birthday so we had to find low carb dessert options, lol. We just substituted splenda for the sugar and did a no crust cheesecake with sour cream and raspberry topping. Cheesecake doesn't have a ton of carbs anyhow, but we stick to less than 30g and I try to keep what I get from veggies so I get enough fiber.

    I love it when it rained all night and I wake up to fresh blooming flowers that make the air smell sweeter than any baked confection!

    I also love it when I get my workout done early and it keeps me motivated the whole rest of the day.

    @Tosh. Thanks for the heartwarming post. It must be wonderful to see others recover and help out along the way.

    Yes, it is lovely. Sad though at times too.

    I was joking with an A.A. lady last night and our conversation was "Don't you hate it when you help someone get and stay sober and they get their lives together and end up doing better than you!"

    That made me smile.

    Yeah, we need to spread the love.

    Incidentally, in my own defence, the 'I really, really hate it when....' thread was initially intended to be entirely light-hearted... Hence the first post I made therein.. I mean, talk about "1st World problems"....! :lol:

    I really love it when the school year finally settles down and we can look forward to summer. The last month is so incredibly busy it just flies by, but now in the last few days, it's calmed down, the kids get to do mostly fun stuff, and summer is almost here!
    Also, I love that I planted a few frost-resistant things in my garden this week. My favorite time of year is planting season! AND I love when plans come together. My to-do list for our vacation has been growing exponentially and finally I am starting to cross some things off.

    I really really love it when the Universe rewards me by having my almost 16 year old daughter be totally self sufficient on the weekend and allows me to sleep in on a cold Saturday morning 🎉🎉🎉

    I really, really love it when you have a holiday Monday and you roll about lazily in bed the whole weekend long, and shower late, and are in no haste to go out and everything is done in slow motion...
    Well, in fact, I wake up too early and meditate in bed, but never mind...
    I'm still in bed <3

    Well it's 'Flaming June' here in the UK. A lady came into our astore, wearing a quilted jacket, woollen scarf and woolly hat.

    Yes, Summer in the UK has well and truly arrived....
