Ten On Tuesday

Today’s Ten on Tuesday topic comes from Beth and it’s a great one: Ten Everyday Things That Make You Happy. I’m pretty sure the secret to a happy life is being content with what you have and being happy with where you are and this topic is all about just that. Here we go!

  1. Lighting a scented candle – or two.
  2. Driving my car. It still has that new smell!
  3. Using Blessed Juno soap – my favorite is New Day.
  4. Our Keurig coffee maker.
  5. Watching the hummingbirds at our feeders.
  6. Using my iPhone. It’s a silly piece of technology but it makes my life easier and better in so many ways.
  7. Petting the cat.
  8. Reading in bed. I love that feeling of snuggling in with pillows and a quilt and reading until I fall asleep. It doesn’t usually take very long.
  9. Indoor plumbing. If you think this isn’t important try going without it for a day or two.
  10. A hug and kiss from Dale. It’s the perfect way to start and end every day.

    My DH has started setting up the coffee maker before he goes to sleep so all I have to do in the morning is flip the switch – both his thoughtfulness and the effortless morning coffee make me happy!

    What a wonderful list. I’m convinced . . . it’s the little things in our lives that bring happiness!

    Laurie’s soap is a great way to start a day! Having a cup of tea from my little teapot is another of my faves for a day. Love your list!

    A hug (or text) from one of my kids … puppy kisses … snuggling with my hubby. Life is crazy good, and we are truly Blessed!

    Your list is perfect and I agree it’s those small things in life
    that make me happy ~ especially that very first cup of coffee
    in the morning from my Keurig!

    It is the little things–great topic. I would add the latest knitting project waiting by my chair!

    Great list! It’s important to remember what makes us happy. I totally agree that the key to a happy life is keeping that in mind and being happy “right where we are”. You have no idea how much I needed to remember that today!

    What a lovely list, Carole. And it really reminds me to be more present in the moment. Sometimes I get too focused on the big picture and miss those moments. Thanks!

    Ripe cherries, spaghetti, corn on the cob, a new ball of sock yarn – to admire, not necessarily to knit! Oh look, three of those things are edible….

    Ha! Indoor plumbing is so easily taken for granted (except when there isn’t any), but it makes me pretty happy too!

    mmmm…. coffee. I’ve been up for over an hour, so I am so due for a cup! Great list, but obviously the coffee really stuck with me.
