So many things make me happy...
Spending every day with the man of my dreams who loves me unconditionally makes me happy beyond words. Feeling all that love...well, there's nothing
better in the world.
I love to bake bread...something about kneading the dough and smelling it in the oven makes me very happy. Cooking in general makes me happy, but
particularly baking. Then, eating a slice of warm bread smothered in butter...*sigh*...what joy!
Baking for other people makes me happy too. I love to share what I bake into work, and seeing others enjoy my bread makes me happy.
Feeling the sun on my skin...*sigh*...that's just so amazing. If I'm feeling a little down in the dumps, going outdoors in the sunshine will always
perk me up.
Watching the birds at my feeder every day makes me happy. I don't know why really...they're just so beautiful and precious...silly at times
too...and I love watching them.
I know this may sound weird, but eating good food that makes me "sing" is a source of joy for me. Do you know what I mean? You bite into something
really yummy and you can't help but utter those "uuuuuummmmm" sounds. Mostly it's fruits, vegetables, and fresh bread and butter that do that.
Music and art definitely make me happy, as does getting out and taking pictures...a hobby that I share with my honey.
Caustics make me happy. Again, I know that probably sounds weird, but there's something really amazing about caustics, and every time I see them they
make me feel happy. I love photographing caustics as well.
Sitting in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine on a chilly evening is something else that makes me feel happy, as does smelling the burning
wood and hearing it crackle as it burns.
I love the smell of all kinds of fresh flowers, as well as flower scents in candles and perfumes. Wild honeysuckle is my favorite, and as I inhale the
scent, I smile and feel so incredibly happy.
Watching a great film in the evening with my honey makes me happy, sitting outside on my balcony reading a good novel makes me feel great, as does
taking a walk with my husband and just enjoying nature.
I find the ocean totally amazing, and even though I rarely get to go seaside, when I do, there's nothing more joyous than watching the sun rise as I
walk on the beach. Feeling the sand between my toes, hearing the ocean waves hit the beach, and smell the sea air...well those things make me
I could go on and on about the things that make me happy. I didn't even mention how wonderful it feels when I'm sleepy to crawl into bed and drift
off, nor did I mention how hearing the crickets at night makes me feel happy and at peace. I have no idea why, but it does.
Kissing my husband is also a pretty amazing and exciting thing, as is looking into his big brown eyes. *sigh*. Life is good.
