a few of my favorite things

I feel like this summer has been a bit of a flop. I haven't done what I thought I'd do and . . . I've been stressing about some things . . . blah blah blah . . . I'll spare you the details. But in the midst of a stressful morning today, I tried to think of some things that are making me happy right now. Here are a few simple ones:

1. we bought a huge container of chives recently and I am really loving quesadillas with tomatoes and chives. Yummm 2. I have to confess that sometimes I really like Broadway musicals. This is one of my favorites. It made me smile as I sang along and mopped my kitchen this morning.

3. The temp this morning was 78 degrees. I went for a walk and it felt amazing.

4. Speaking of walking, these shoe inserts have made it possible for me to postpone needing to buy new shoes (for a little while, anyway). They feel heavenly. I am so happy.

5. And this ice cream is my new favorite. Soooo tasty. yum yum yum! (and no, I really don't care that 2 out of the 5 happy things on this list are food! ha! so there.)

What's making you happy today?

Chirping crickets on a cool summer night makes me happy!

I was able to finish a book today. That always makes me happy. Cool breezes, finally getting a shower since yesterday I didn't, talking to friends, thinking that a dream might actually be possible, watching Sophia discover her jr. high and eating 2 candy bars and 2 bowls of ice cream because I really needed the chocolate.

Thanks, Kristen, I needed a moment of happiness reflection.

I'm sooo jealous of your #3! And #s 1 and 5 sound divine. I'm having a hard time thinking of happy things these days, so thanks for a wonderfully timely post.
