10 Simple Things


L'atelier tagged me to post 10 simple things that make me happy. Easy peasy!
  1. Snous waking me up in the morning - she comes into the room, puts her front legs on the bed and licks my arm. Or when she is feeling exuberant she runs in and bounces on the bed.
  2. L'Usband. Not that I am suggesting that he is a simple thing, but he does make me happy!
  3. Sitting on our patio, under our umbrella, looking at the sea.
  4. Making my first cup of coffee in the morning, while reading the headlines over L'Usband's shoulder, then sipping it slowly ...
  5. Lying on the sofa, cushion under my head, reading a book.
  6. Catching up on people's blogs.
  7. Seeing beautiful handmade stuff - often on people's blogs.
  8. Making stuff. Even when it comes out crooked and skew.
  9. Getting a letter in the post. A good kind of letter, obviously.
  10. Watching a movie (on DVD usually), especially when eating my supper. I know it is bad, but I am addicted!
  11. Finding a new word. Oh, I forget most of them as soon as I hear them, but I do so love a good word. Found this one today (on Michael Quinion) - galanthophile - a collector or lover of snowdrops!
  12. Car boot sales.
Oh, wait, I have to stop ...

All good things. I'm jealous of your pup, sea and sun. Although, we may be looking at the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to cold weather. Hate to see it go off to visit my friends in the southern hemisphere but we are tired of it here.

I'm jealous too. I wish I could change one day with you.

OH- don't stop- I am so enjoying your enjoying - beginning with the best little doggie dog! Don't stop- twelve is not enough.

these are lovely things and i wish too that you had kept going! when i was scrolling down and neared number 10, i kept thinking, "what? she hasn't listed car boot sales yet." you made me happy and proud on #12.

Yeay! Can you see Le 'Usband's happy grin - even though he is behind Snous on the list?

Your list is fab!
"3. Sitting on our patio, under our umbrella, looking at the sea".. I want that RIGHT NOW! :)

Oh I DO love a list and this is a really, really good one. I too wished it could go on...

How fabulous that there's a special word for someone who loves snowdrops. I actually know a galanthophile (although did not know 'til now that she was one) She lives in Wales and has bunches and bunches of them in her garden and house for the few weeks that they're in flower, and several beautiful paintings depicting them, for when they're not :)
