|Sometimes it takes so little to make me happy

In this case, $3.95. (Well, okay, $4.13, including tax.)
New gardening gloves. Exactly like the ones I've worn out (except blue instead of green). Close-fit knit with sturdy latex coating on the palms and fingers to make pulling up nasty, prickly things quite painless.
We walked down to the little Lebanese place last night (mmm, chicken shawarma...) and then over to Home Depot. I found just the gloves I wanted. It made me happy. This morning I spotted them again, sitting on the windowsill where I left them last night, and they made me happy all over again. I'm hoping to get home tonight in time to put them to use (an iffy proposition, as a huge project is coming to a head at work today).
AND I got new, thicker tubes put into the tires of my bike (when it once again had a flat yesterday - grr!). So now I'm off to ride to work.
Which also makes me happy.
