Angelina blogged today about things that make her happy and encouraged her readers to do so either in the comment section or in their own blogs. I didn’t want to hijack her blog and I think it is wonderful to focus, really focus on the happy things in life once in a while, so I thought I would do take the opportunity to do so.

  • Waking up and sitting down to a fresh, hot, strong cup of french pressed coffee with the perfect amount of sucanat sugar, half and half and a squirt of whipped cream.
  • Sitting down with the above mentioned cup of coffee in the quiet of the morning and reading my emails.
  • Sitting down with the above mentioned cup of coffee and playing a game of chess with my beloved before the girls wake up.
  • Cooking a delicious dinner that everyone enjoys.
  • Fragrant roses in June.
  • Harvesting food out of my garden.
  • Fresh strawberry shortcake using strawberries that we picked the same day.
  • Clean cool sheets felt with freshly shaved legs.
  • The kind of hugs from the girls where they throw their arms around my neck and hug me with their whole being.
  • Laying down in a quiet house with a book.
  • Frappucinos.
  • Watching TV after the girls have gone to bed and nothing is required of me.
  • Talking about politics, religion, philosophy and all deep issues with Lawrence.
  • Sitting on the porch on a summer night with Lawrence with some libations and talking.
  • A fresh, new bar of handmade soap.
  • Walking through my garden.
  • Having friends over for dinner.
  • Seeing family that I haven’t seen in a long while.

What about you? What makes you happy?

*Something that makes me unhappy is being sick, which I have been for the past two days. I have had a cold coupled with allergies and also menstrual cramps. Angelina is having a cocktail party for the closing of her store tonight that I am not going to attend because of my illness. Being sick sucks.
