I used to do a lot of question and answer bulletins on myspace when I had the time. Those were the days. Cory tagged me for this, so I had to do it, and I think this one is kind of nice. Couldn’t we all use a little time to sit back, relax and think about what makes us happy in our lives?
I think it is especially funny that a few of the things that make Cory most happy, scare the crap out of me.
Anyhow, the rules:
(1) List six things that make you happy
(2) Pass on to 6 more bloggers
(3) Link back to the person who linked you
(4) Link to the people you are passing it on to and leave them a comment to let them know.
Things that make me happy . . .
1.) The feeling of accomplishment, however it might come. Like the feeling you get after you’ve prepared a spectacular meal, or cleaned your house top to bottom, or when you’ve completed a project such as knitting a hat, painted a wall or finished a really good (or bad) book. Wow, I sound like an old 50’s housewife don’t I?
2.) Eating. Cooking. Baking. Sugar. I love to eat pretty much anything and love to cook when I have the time. You should have me over for dinner.
3.) Reading. I love to read. It feels like time I’ve stolen just for myself. And it introduced me to a great group of friends. I need to read more.
4.) Hiking. I really love being outdoors and especially love hiking now that we have Izzie to entertain us while we’re hiking.
5.) Things that remind me of home, whenever and wherever I consider home to be or have been. It could be rain on a metal roof to remind me of my parents’ house in Lantana or of the first place Ryan and I lived together in Gainesville. It could be thunder on a humid day that reminds me of my father and I shouting ka-boom at the thunder and lightening on our back porch when I was a scared little kid. Whatever it is, I just love the smells or sounds that trigger your memory to go back to a long ago thought or place. I love that.
6.) My mom and Dad, and Ryan. None of the other stuff would even matter if I didn’t have them.
And for you, my friends near and far, please tell me what makes you most happy in the world, and reading that will make me happy!
1.) Left of Center, Against the Grain
2.) Nibblin’ on Spongecake
3.) Sheer Excitement
4.) Little Red Pen
5.) A Day in the Life of a “Worrywart”
6.) I have a lot to say . . .
