Quiet Happy Moments

They really need to either find a name for, or bottle the feeling of those quiet happy moments. You know the ones I'm talking about, I have posted about them before, but you experience them yourself. That moment, even if it's for a second, you somehow step out of your situation and realise 'this is a perfect moment,' 'I am perfectly content and happy in this moment.' You take a snapshot with your mind, and it goes on the list of 'things that make me happy.'

One of those rare Winter Sunday afternoons where the sun is shining and the air smells clean, I was at my parents in law's house making cupcakes for Monday (national cup cake day for the RSPCA) My Mom (in law) sticking liquorice whiskers on the kitty-cat cupcakes I was icing, my Franklin expertly cutting the liquorice into whiskers for her, my brother in law tinkering on the piano, 'tinkering' here means making up his own tune but as he's a musical genius it obviously sounded amazing. Bliss.

It made me think it would be nice to have a piano and someone who could (and would be willing to Franklin) play in my house, but we can't have everything, and I am definitely grateful for the lots I already have.

For proof, here's the cupcakes, which were fortunately a hit today and there are none left (except the special Franklin one in the fridge) A bit playschool, but cute and easy!
