Things That Make Me Happy

Okay my sister started a list of things that make her happy. She plans to list 100 items and she ends her post by encouraging others to do the same so I decided to finally take her up on it.

1. Waking up next to Paul each morning, especially after we have had a fight
2. Listening to Andrew and Colin play their insturments
3. Reading a good book
4. A weekly massage
5. Hearing Colin sing
6. Holding new babies
7. Watching the light bulb go on for my students when they finally get the hang of a complex subject
8. Watching EHHS marching band in competition
9. Meeting my friend Mary for coffee so we can catch up
10. Meeting my friend Kerri for lunch
11. Long distance phone calls to talk to family and friends
12. Getting comments on my blog
13. Watching sappy movies
14. Writing
15. Curling up under a blanket when it is raining outside
16. Going to work everyday
17. Hanging out with my girlfriends
18. Antique hunting
19. Going to the Fort Worth Zoo
20. Looking at old photos
21. Baking
22. Listening to a good sermon
23. Sharing a banana split
24. Going to Broadway productions
25. Walking around the neighborhood with Paul
26. The First Day of School
27. Watching my parents together after almost 50 years
28. Finding the perfect gift
29. Visiting with out of town friends and family
30. Having a conversation with my sons about whatever comes to mind

This is my first 30 and they were hard to come up with. I typed as they came to me I'm sure if I had to put them in order of importance I would move some of them around. Pass it on make your own list.

"Going to the Fort Worth Zoo" surprised me a little.

I like the zoo especially in the Spring when the weather is nice and we have new babies at the zoo.

TC said...

What a great idea! Are you going to keep working until you hit 100?

PennyCandy said...

Yeah but I'm not sure when I'll come up with more. Maybe after Friday, I have to have a medical test and when I get good news I might be able to come with more happy things.

Gosh there were so many on your list that make me happy too! I think if I started my own list I'd just be copying a lot of yours and Heidi's! Can't wait to read the rest!

You threw me a little bit by referring to Doohickie as Paul :)

Writing's definitely on my list. As well as hanging out with my girlfriends.

I'm kidding of course. Oh, and comments make me happy, too.

PennyCandy said...

Yeah I totally forgot to refer to him as Doohickie this time. I guess I should just always call him "love" since that is what I call him at home.

You don't like hanging out with your, movies, dinner, drinks. Huh!
