simple pleasures

Tonight I am a bit silly... just been reading ALL these "25 things about me..." on Facebook and it's got me thinking about all kinds of things. Namely, I've been realizing how many simple things I take pleasure in. I thought it would be a healthy and happy list for me to make, maybe not 25, but off the top of my head... an un-calculated list of simple things that make me happy.

brownies.

the way it feels when I hand gather a ruffle and pin it to another piece of fabric.

the hum of my sewing machine.

the mighty click of my shutter in my camera.

mermaid hair after a day of french braids.

french braiding.

hot tea.

new books.

old books.

starbucks.

when someone small looks at me like this.

and if I am ever sad, I just have to look at this face and everything is all right.

shoes.

writing.

text messages.

no traffic.

a clean sink.

sweat after running.

popping my back.

This list has gotten long fast, I'm so glad. If anyone needs a sure fire way to feel better instantly, write out a list of things that make you smile...it will generate good feelings almost immediately.

That's funny how you actually enjoy hand gathering ruffles! I actually hate doing that part so I'm gonna buy myself a ruffler. I've finally decided to do it. LOL!

As for the 25 things...I did a list on my blog earlier this week...not necessarily things that make me happy but just random weird stuff. I too have gotten tons of those facebook tags.

i'm totally with you on just about every single one of those (the jury's still out on text messages), but i've one more to add to that list: a friend like you.

on a different note, i am ever in love with your taste in music. so often i discover new songs through your playlist, and they end up being my favorite new songs. rock. on.
