6 Things that make me happy

I was tagged by my cousin Melissa. It has been great being back in contact with her and getting to know her better. I think cousins are so fun and I've been lucky to be able to stay in touch with many of my cousins.

So the tag is 6 unimportant things that make you happy. {we all know that our kids make us happy so you can't pick that}

1} Green Grass.... I love the smell of freshly cut grass and the way it feels on my feet. I love the color and they way it make everything look brighter.

2} Music... Again, I love the way music makes me feel. I like the beat and bopping my head {although off beat} to it. I listen to the lyrics of every song {I like to know what I'm singing} and I like the story it tells

3} Hot Showers.... I'm so thankful for this convienence! Not just to be clean but because I feel like it washes away my troubles or stress from the day. I can hop in the shower and come out and be a better mom and person.

4} Moving.... I really enjoy moving. I love meeting new people and seeing new places. I love the new challenges and over coming them. I love cleaning out my house, and getting rid of the junk that accumulates. This isn't to say that I don't look forward to my "white picket fence" because I totally do. But right now I really like moving.

5} My Dishwasher.... I love being able to plunk my dishes in and have them come out clean. I rinse them off first but I love knowing that they are sanitized. And while we are on the subject of dishwashers... Thank you all who come over and eat with us, I totally enjoy the company and good conversation, but to be honest... after you have helped me load the dishwasher, I redo it because you probably have loaded it wrong.... {I appreciate the effort}

6} Sumer Evenings... I love the warm evenings. I love watching the kids play outside and run from house to house. I love getting to know my neighbors. Every now and then we get the water out and let all the kids run wild. I love seeing the joy that stay's on the boy's faces as they get to watch the sun go down and still get to play outside. I love seeing the stars and moon rise. I love the warmth.

There you are, 6 random things that make me happy. I tag anyone who wants to do this. Tags are good for days that you don't have anything to write, or if you are having a slow day, or maybe just a brain cramp. So do it if you want to.....

I wish I loved moving. I guess some aspects of it are good, but the meeting people is stressful for me.

Popping in from SITS to say good morning.

Great list! A hot shower is something we take for granted, but is so nice to have!

Moving? I am not sure I like to move. I have done it a few times and it was hard to find that right friend again. Thanks for stopping by and your box is on its way also.

Thanks for posting that. It is so fun to read everyone's answers. I love my dishwasher too. It broke 3 weeks before Christmas and I had to wash dishes for a family of 6 for a whole month before getting a new one! I really love my dishwasher - and I rearrange mine too, even after my husband loads it.

one quick click will help me get into the top 25!!
