Six happy things

I was tagged by Clean and Crazy to post six unimportant things that make me happy. The lists so far have been great. So here are some things that make me happy. There are so many little things that make me happy. In fact, more of the little things do than the big things. And the ones listed are not totally unimportant though. At least not to me....

  1. Seeing my greyhounds play and run; watching them surf in the water at the beach
  2. Eating the first tomatoes of the season that came from our garden.
  3. Listening to the gurgling of the water garden that we created on our deck. It is right under the bedroom window nearest the bed and is so soothing.
  4. Having a fair wind, watching the sails fill and listening to the hum of the keel through the water
  5. Watching fireworks in the city while I'm anchored with the boat. What a show!
  6. Snuggling up to watch a movie with our legs and arms entwined.
If you want to do this, consider yourself tagged. It's fun to think about those little things that make a person happy.

Have a peaceful Saturday. I'm heading out on the boat. The weather is supposed to be in the lower to mid 80's with sunshine and a fair breeze.


  1. hey! lovely read syd! i did mine this morning too.

  2. Yes, it's the little things that can enhance a life. I love your list. Thanks for the tip about Wells Reserve. If I ever get to Maine again I will go there.

  3. great list (though my stance would be that if it makes you happy, it can't be unimportant :P though get your point...I've written before about finding 'meaning' in the seemingly 'meaningless')

    have a great time out on the boat!

  4. Sounds: Birdsong, Washing Machine on Spin, Prayer flags flapping in the wind.... Sight: Slant of sun through my kitchen window, Pink Petunias against blue sky, Morning glory growing up string.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. "6. Snuggling up to watch a movie with our legs and arms entwined.

    WHAT!!!??? (I took that out of context....)

    Mine will go up tonight (Sat/Sunday)

    Rally liked your list--in fact, I'm enjoying EVERYONE'S!

  6. Be happy this week end, Syd.

  7. Syd,

    This list was awesome! Thanks so much for sharing! I have a gorgeous greyhound too. They're such incredible dogs, aren't they? :)

    Hope you enjoy a fabulous weekend.


  8. I love your list darlin', the water sounds are one of my favorite to because it's so steady.

  9. A delightful six dear friend. On the subject of terrible bosses...I used to work for my ex FIL as if that wasn't horrendeous enough. Sometimes you can't always change the situation, however you can change how you react. (Hugs)Indigo

  10. Oh Syd what a great post!

    And going out into the garden to pick and bite into a ripe sunwarmed tomato is quintessential summer --


  11. I love that "whup" sound the sail makes when it fills with wind.

  12. That is a lovely photo. these are little things that can enhance a life.


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
