More Blooms and What Makes Me Happy

The amaryllis is having it's second round of blooms. My newest one is sending up a bud too. I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like. Carolyn, in Rose Notes tagged me to list 10 things that make me happy:

a cup of strong black tea
big dogs
a good book
falling asleep to the sound of the surf
seeing the chickens run when I let them out for the day
cashmere socks
seeing the twinkly lights on when I drive up
meeting a friend for a glass of wine
the sound of the peepers down at the creek
planting flowers in the sweet-smelling earth

Now I'm picking:

Meredith
Anne
Jennie
Kiki
Jen
Catherine
Lesley
Jan
Chloe
June

So, consider yourself tagged. Pick 10 things that make you happy, & pass it on to 10 more. For all I couldn't pick, what's making you happy today? And if you haven't been by already, make a comment to enter my giveaway.

Hi Laurie, Just saw your comment on my blog, I am a bit to Facebook happy lately with my jewelry page and forgetting my blog! That rain barrel was a blog question, but yes I would! We have 11 55 gallon barrels that collect rain on the roof and last fall acquired 3 300 gallon containers that we will rig up with a gutter system for watering our gardens. Will ad 10 things on my blog today!

Hi, Laurie! Please tell your mom I stopped by. I like your list of 10 things and I am going to add it to my facebook wall and ask my friends for their ten things. I can see a lot of your mother in you. She is so proud of you and the woman you are and I can see why. What a wonderful life you lead and I will be back to your Etsy site soon.
