Ten things that make me happy

Last month I was tagged by Jane and Erin to list ten things that make me happy. Here is my list …

1. Really good books, the kind that make you wonder how in the world the author was able to come up with such a compelling storyline and interesting characters.

2. Spending time outdoors, whether it's walking, birdwatching or just sitting.

3. My two naughty, playful, loving cats.

4. Yarn. Love to buy it, love to knit with it.

5. Getting enough sleep and waking up feeling good. It just doesn’t happen often enough.

6. Spending time with friends who are positive and supportive.

7. Writing. I like it when I get so involved in my writing that hours slip by unnoticed.

8. Succeeding at something I wasn’t sure I could do, like learning a new knitting technique or traveling alone to a new place.

10. Rain. We don't get enough of it around here. I love to be at home during a storm, snuggled up in a blanket with a book or my knitting.

11. Silence. The absence of noise makes me really, really happy.

Oops, I guess that was eleven things that make me happy. What makes you happy?

Great List! I'm with you -- I love silence. When I'm at my mom's she always has the tv on and it drives me nuts. I told her that I often sew four hours in silence and she said that would drive her nuts. To each his own I guess!

I love your list and I am totally with you and thimbleanna - silence is an amazing thing. And time outdoors. Have a great day!


Hi Stacy,
Like your 10 list...I like it quiet also!
Looks like a fun adventure on your other post at the bird outing. Love going to book stores and I like the Little House series too.

Oh I could come up with a bunch too:) I also love silence sometimes, being outside working in the yard, planting flowers, crafting, shopping, playing with the Grandkids... anything that has to do with Grandkids, being at the ballfield, visiting with my brothers and sisters.

Oh my goodness, my list will be long:) Have a blessed day my friend!

I love your list.
After a long cold winter, being outdoors makes me very happy, too. :-)

I love seeing 11 things on a list of 10 things that make you happy. That's awesome! For me happiness is sunshine and thunderstorms, fresh flowers, warm sandy beaches, the smell of fresh cut grass, my children's laughter, a day full of knitting, and taking walks with my husband. :)
