Ten Happy Things ...

On some blogs I read, I've seen people post lists of certain things that make them happy. I thought it would be fun to do today. These silly tiger slippers are one of them. Can you believe they are 19 years old? I have pictures of me wearing them when Nichelle was a baby. I don't know why, but they are so comfortable, as goofy as they look. I love wearing them around the house. Here is my list of 10 Things That Make Me Happy, in no particular order --
  1. Hearing my children laughing
  2. Listening to the rain while in bed
  3. The smell of coffee brewing in the morning
  4. Belle sleeping on my lap
  5. My tiger slippers
  6. Picking berries, especially huckleberries
  7. Watching the snow fall
  8. Kayaking to a secluded spot on a lake
  9. Seeing squirrels eat from my feeders
  10. Watching M*A*S*H with Rick
