Saturday Silliness

Okay, here goes. List some of the things that make you happy. VERY Happy. But wait! There are a few catches.... we ALL have families and churches and homes and friends and pets that make us happy so no listing those! We all enjoy love and peace and hugs and that sort of thing. I am looking for the people (NOT Family and Friends), places (NOT home or church home) and things that cause you to feel all giddy and sparkly and do the happy dance. Okay, not necessarily THAT happy (But they COULD do that!) but you get my drift right? Or have I muddled up these directions to the point of complete confusion? Yeah, I know I have a tendency to do that but hey...
AND you need to add a picture of those things that make you really happy. Captions with the pictures are fine. Just think of those small things (or NOT so small) in life that are not *necessary* to our individual survival but just help make your life a bit sweeter.
So, to lead all of us off, here is a list of *some* of the things that just make me happy. I am a none too deep, fairly one dimensional gal so no big surprises! And yes, food stuffs are a big part of this list. BIG shock huh? Could I live without any of these? Uh huh. Would I WANT to? Nah.....
So, in no particular order, deep breath, here goes!

Potato Salad
Sketching The Andy Griffith Show Decorating Books

Oh, and blogging AND all of YOU! But don't ask me to do my happy dance until tomorrow! It has been a LONG day! I am happy dancing in my mind...really. I am. No kiddin'.
Have a sweet weekend. Do something that makes you happy! You look so wonderful with that big, gorgeous smile on your face!

Oh, I loved this post! It will keep me smiling all weekend (and with all the news these days, one needs something like this).

Here are a few things that I can't live without:

Mr. Rogers (and I have no small children in the house)
The aroma of newly mown grass in Spring
The aroma of woodsmoke in Autumn
Red barns and green John Deere Tractors
Lunch served on my "girly" china
French toast and coffee
My Starbucks twice a month (all the budget can allow)
Photos of New England in Autumn

Hi Susie,
That is a great list. I would post a list with pictures but I do not know how to post here adding images.
Perhaps you can email some instructions. Before I go on about what makes me happy. I wanted to know if you would like to link? I love your blog it is always so much fun. So I want to send some visitors from Robin Sherwood frecklefarm your way.
Happy List
1.A cats purr
2.Yellow cake with pink buttercream frosting from Amy's Bread in New York
3. Any movie with Johnny Depp in it he's so handsom!
4.Royalties,residuals and large checks made out to me for millions and millions of dollars. This is an
affirmation since I have not seen this as of yet but meditating on it with creative visualization.
5.Cottage style beds, soft crisp, piles of down and sumptuos cotton linens piled to make one big puff.
6. Country life on the weekends and
New York City on the weekdays.
7. French Fries ... please make mine extra crispy.
8.Fried Chicken

Have a peaceful Sunday.

great list. Hope you are felling better.

Gretchen said...

Well thank goodness for Brian. I would've felt like you had cheated us all if not for a photo of him. :O) Seriously, I can wholeheartedly agree with the cuppa, the chocolates, and the rabbits. Perfume is good, too. I always want my kids to remember that I was the mommy that smelled sweet. Have a great week.
