The smell of being able to open a window in my house, when it's above freezing for once. Being able to let in a little fresh air. That can really make me feel happy.

Your comment about needing to get a little nature each day. That makes me a little sad. It's so true, and doesn't always happen for me. Especially in winter. I go from van through the parking lot, through from van on the sidewalk, from van in the garage into the house every day. We have a fenced back yard in the city with two trees. It is the dead of winter and there hasn't been much enjoyment of nature lately. We've taken a winter walk or two, but it's definitely not daily. I need spring!

Sometimes it's hard to remind ourselves to just stop and look at something in nature at least one/day. Sometimes even just stepping out and looking at the sky for a few minutes is food for the soul, I find.
