A Happiness List (in no particular order)

Robin and Anhinga both tagged me for the happiness meme, wherein you list 6 things that bring you happiness. This is somewhat of an expansion on that concept. I’m not going to tag anyone specifically, as this meme has been around most everywhere, but it’s as good a day as any to paste up a happiness. The very act of thinking about these things gave me a glow.

1. A camera with fresh batteries

2. brioche with home-made jam

3. sea creatures! Dolphins, cuttlefish, rays, seaweed, fish, salmon, blowfish, swordfish, kelp forests, itty critters

4. The perfect color green sweater

5. Irish fellas

6. Italian fellas

7. Latino heartthrobs

8. Appealing mutts

9. laughter

10. Music!

11. Dancing!

12. Yellowstone

13.  Yosemite

14. Mountains and towers of books

15. Crunchy stuff: Nuts. Frozen blueberries. Ice. Cereals.

16. Chocolate. (good chocolate)

17. Conversation. (good conversation)

18. The part where you’re excited about a movie you’re going to see, and sometimes the part when you’re watching a movie and realize you really, really like it.

19. Nature in all its iterations, and the opportunity to experience those.

20. sand on bare toes

21. A good game of cards.

22. History, and the option to embrace or ignore it.

23. French

24. clean sheets

25. orchids, and their astounding variety

26. colors, and their astounding variety

27. words

28. Trees. Leaves. Crunching leaves. Crunching leaves and the perfect color green sweater.

  1. Really? Frozen Blueberries? I don’t think I’ve ever tried them frozen. Hmmm. (takes small break to go pop a frozen blueberry into mouth). No, maybe not for me.

    Clean sheets, yay! Good movies, yay!

    Actually, I think I’m with you on everything on your list except the blueberries. But I did have some fresh ones in my cereal this morning. :)

  2. And to add to the leaves, I really like springtime when you don’t see an individual leaf so much as a misty green on the trees. Love that.

  3. 1. I never have a camera or mines out of batteries when a photo op is at hand 2. I didn’t even know how to spell ‘brioche’ 3. Yeah your a chick. 4. the perfect color green eyes 5. Irish chick. (with said green eyes) (oh…and big boobs) 6. Italian Sodas 7. Latino strippers (wait…what?) 8. Ok I’m with you on the mutts. 9. Laughter (AND pretty smiles) 10. Music! (again with you on this one) 11. Dancing! (umm not me thanks. Not anymore) 12. Yellowstone (maybe I’ll go one day.) 13. Yosemite Sam 14. Mountains and towers of books (how could you put mountains and books in the same line????) 15. Crunchy stuff: Nuts. Frozen blueberries. Ice. Cereals. (Absolutely. Frozen grapes too) 16. Chocolate. (good chocolate) (ditto) 17. Conversation. (good conversation) (or really bad cheesy conversations) 18.

Nature (nothing else needs said) 20. sand on bare toes (beach bum) 21. A good game of D&D with friends 22. History, and the option to ignore it.

Green apples and anything that tastes/smells like green apples 26. My favorite black T-shirts (yes that’s plural) 27. words (thank you) 28. Having some one else mow my lawn.

    Ok didn’t mean to hijack your post. But it was Funny. (To me!) Even if most of it is true. (yes i know it was mountains and towers of books not Mountains, and towers of books.) You forgot Ice Cream, The smell of fresh Coffee, Watching your children doing some thing incredibly silly or wrong, New born colts getting their legs and prancing around. Ferrets!!! House, And last but not least Good Friends.
