Friday Happy Things

riding the wind
a baby's yawn
when hiking through snow, using the footsteps of one who has boldly gone before you
the way your lover looked at you the first time you met
the meaning of a bird's song
tulips pushing through rain-soaked soil
perfume vials
a private collection of pleasures
dark blue sky
a smile from a stranger
sharing things: toys, fun, giggles,secrets
the fairy-tale factory in your mind
when, in the middle of a quiet, milder than usual night, the accumulated snow on the roof slides off with a thundering crash
pillow fights
part of you always being a child
rosy mornings
big red barns
the uncurling of a fern
collecting handbags, supermarket art, framed cards, bowls, antique agate boxes, art deco,pictures, rugs, hearts, wooden eggs, matchbooks, pasta seashells, salt and pepper shakers, buttons, printer's type, perfume bottles, labels, copper pennies, quilts
Okay.....that should do it for this Friday! :-) I got a late start this morning...Andy did some much needed maintenance on the computer...he is off for 4 days starting today! I am getting some art ready to mail and just finished making some blueberry muffins...It is glorious outside today...temps. supposed to be in the low 70's.....the sun is shining so bright! I wish everyone could come over ...share some ice tea... sit in the front yard and listen to the bees and hummingbirds buzz around the Quince bush....the closer you walk torwards the bush..the louder it gets....there are some very busy bees in that bush ! I am going to try to get a photo of it today! Hope EVERYONE has a stupendous Friday and better than ever weekend!

Friday just wouldn't be Friday without your list, Vicci! Your list of happy things always makes me happy. :-) You have such an observant way about you, and the ability to describe things so well that I know exactly what you mean! Do you and Andy have plans for his four days off?! Have a wonderful weekend! I know you'll make it so. xo

I so agree with Alix, Fridays just would not be the same without your list! I find myself saying out loud "YES!" to each and everyone of them.

How I wish we could all sit in your front yard and drink iced tea together.... wouldn't that just be grand? Maybe some day.

Have a wonderful day and week-end My sweet Vicci!
