Happy 101

Susanne at Living to Tell the Story has awarded me the Happy 101 award. Thank you, Susanne, for the nice surprise!

First, I have to list 10 things that make me happy. Then I get to pass the goodness and the award to other bloggers who make me happy.
So, 10 things that make me happy:

1. Books

2. Quilts, down comforters and a freshly made bed

3. Personal e-mail messages, snail mail and packages

4. Refund checks

5. Charm bracelets

6. When someone surprises me and empties the dishwasher

7. Finding money in my coat pocket

8. Jimmy Buffet songs

9. Hearing someone say, "Let's go out to dinner."

10. Babies of any species


And to spread the joy, I'd like pass this on to:

Rizzi at Gifts from the Sea, because she makes me happy and I love her to pieces:)

Jen at Ingleside Mom, because she is one of the most gracious bloggers I've met. And I love how she starts each post, counting her blessings.

Diana at Sunshine On My Shoulders, because I think she would be a great neighbor to have over my backyard fence. And her blog is just so much fun --go take a look!

And if anyone else wants to grab the happy award and do the happy post, go for it 'cause you all make me happy with your visits and great comments. Or better yet, leave a comment and tell me, what makes you happy?

Congrats on your Award, fun post. What makes me happy? When anyone else cooks dinner. Or does the grocery shopping. Coffee shops. Walking, music. Now you've got me happy just thinking of all the happy things in my life!

Susanne said...

I'm hoping to hear let's go out to dinner soon! :v)

Hello Karen,

Lots of luck with your puppy. I recommend you name him "Bentley" What did your mother name her Springer Spaniels and dose your pup have papers?
