What makes you happy?


  1. Lots of the things on your happiness list make me happy too.....stitching, new projects,antique fairs, reading, day trips and on and on...hugs, Linda

  2. Being retired
    Reading blogs every morning
    Getting the mail
    Watching the cardinals in winter
    Watching the hummingbirds in summer
    Drinking coffee with flavored creamer
    Eating dutch letters from Pella, IA

    Just thinking about this list makes me happy! Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. All things stitchy make me happy.
    Reading, antique stores, auctions, the outdoors, my boys (especially how they smell straight from the bath), my husband (he's my rock), friends (close and far) and for all the little blessings I see each and every day.

  4. Lots of good and happy things in your life. You are so blessed,

    keep warm,

  5. Those were really good things but I think I like Sonic butterfinger blizzard thing better than DQ. Try if you have a Sonic.
    I would probably add - a husband that lives with you (mine lives in another state until he finds a job down here). Miss him!

  6. Terrific list, Jennifer! I am a bit behind in my blog reading due to the power outage from the weekend's snowstorm!

    Will have to try a DQ blizzard! Never have had one!
