Little things that make life great...
what are the little things that make life great for you, nothing major, just little things that are special and make you smile?
here are some of mine:
*when my house is lovely and clean and i light my vanilla scented candles
*the feeling that christmas is coming
*taking my young cousins to the cinema on halloween to watch a creepy
film and eat lot's of popcorn
* a cold, crisp winter morning
* a night in with a takeaway and a good film
* my MIL's roast dinners
* my mum's homecooked dinners
What a great idea for a thread!! Let's see......
Clean fresh sheets dried on the line
Discovering a new author with a complete series of books I have yet to read
A bubble bath and a glass of wine after a really grim day
Getting Christmas cards
Having my 17 year old son still want to (occasionally!) stay in and watch a dvd with me!!
Watching my dogs run along the beach
Going to empty the dishwasher to find someone has beaten me to it
Cinnamon toast and hot chocolate
That's what comes to mind just now, but I'll keep popping back with whatever made me smile next...!!
I love this idea. Here are some things that come to mind right now:
1. My husband's omlettes. YUM!
2. Watching the birds at my bird feeder.
3. Getting the mail and finding NO BILLS in it.
4. Playing ball with my dog, Buddy.
5. Chocolate pudding pie.
There's more but I'm going to have to think on it.
Really great idea!
*My kids hugs and kisses
*A steak and cheese sub
*sugar cookie candles
*sitting on the beach watching my kids
*the way my hubby still looks at me
*the fall season
*freshly made beds
*fresh fruit salad
*sand inbetween my toes
*my mums fried chicken
*picking out and cutting down a christmas tree from the tree farm
hhmm lets see...
*Seeing Stef smile at me everyday
*When the Red Sox win
*Having my cat nuzzle me when he see's me
*Cooking up a new recipe and people like it
*Watering the garden every morning and seeing everything grow
*Feeding the chicks and chickens on a bright sunny day
*Coming home to a loving family
*The Simpsons of course
I also LOVE seeing the sox win!!! and the Pats
can I say when the red sox lose? for no other reason then to be pain:snowball:
As long as I can say when your team loses (let me know which ones) :)
my teams usually lose
but the giants are the superbowl champs!!!
A few of my little things ...
when the Robins return in the spring
when the bumble bee landed on my shoulder in early November and I wasn't startled I just whispered, "you better take cover, winter is coming"
the giggle of children at play
watching my grandchildren eat cherry tomatoes and healthy foods with the same excitement that I used to display for Chocolate Turtles and sponge toffee
the smell of pine needles (or Scotch Tape)
when my husband surprises me and has the Christmas lights turned on when I get home from work
when my cat calls me "mermama" it sure sounds like "mama" to me
staying awake on Christmas Eve listening for the sound of sleigh bells
hearing the news that someone I know is expecting a baby
the fragrance of lilac trees, peonies, azaleas, begonias, etc.
when I see a parent stop and explain the "why of things" to their curious toddlers or preschoolers
when the phone rings or I get an email from someone I was just thinking about
the sound of all the backyard birds in the morning (not the ravens)
the creek gurgling
leaves rustling making them sound like waves on the ocean
when I have cool Christmas dreams about people I've never met
when my burger or sub is built in the exact order I want
the sound of horse hooves clip-clopping along and their neigh of joy
touching Echo the Dolphin and doing tricks with him at MarineLand
:cry: I better stop for now, you can only type so much and then the message pops up that you've typed too much. Yikes! Only happened once to me, if you can believe it.
