On being happy

I am really happy with who I am and with my life right now.  The house is quiet and warm, my tea pot rests on a tea pot warmer so my tea stays hot.  My old truck has 4 good tires so I know I can get to work and home, no matter how much snow we get.
I will get shelves up in the attic soon and start gaining some order in the studio area.  The attic nest is in better order but it also will get more tidy in the next couple weeks,
The humidifier is cleaned, new filters and is running so that should help with the dry problem here.
Got a job that has good benefits and a paycheck that pays the bills and now and then pays for old house progress. And most of the time I like the job I do.
Falling asleep so need to post this and get tucked in, hear the wind howling outside and am glad to have my house, shelter from the storms and my sanctuary from the world.

Tax Refunds

It doesn't take long to get it spent, have a far longer list than I do funds but the truck got 2 new tires, same as last year's 2, so should be good for 30-50,000 miles, a long time in my life as I don't put a lot of miles on that truck every year.
And some debt reduction, some house stuff, some non essential stuff that has been many months on a wish list, music and storage boxes that roll under my sleeping space up in my attic nest so I can have a more tidy area.
But, hey, it's great to have those funds and I am ok with how I spend them, every year I get rid of 1 more debt/bill I am making payments on, so there is gain, and every year that old truck gets something it needs so it can keep getting me to work and other places.
Still waiting on the state refund, and it also has a longer wish list than funds but I am ok with that too, like having wish lists, gives me more reason to go to work on those days I would like to stay home.
