random list of happy things

happy right now...

15/1.2011 - time to paint the bedroom

~ about bright colors of paint in sabin's room.

~ that in my dreams, i can confidently use parts from one polaroid to repair another.

~ that in my dreams i apparently have a  polaroid.

~ that the t.v. is off and the only sounds i can hear are the cat purring and myself typing.

~ that i have a big stack of fabric i just cut to begin a new quilt (#3 this year) tomorrow. this one's in red.

~ that my sister's friends are way weirder than my friends (case in point: one of them, who is not jewish, is holding a bar mitzvah party for her husband, who is also not jewish. isn't that just weird? and possibly objectionable or at the very least culturally obtuse.).

~ new moo cards are on their way.

~ that i did all of the items on my list today except for one (and no, there were not only two items on the list).

~ that matilde (our horse) is gleefully covered in mud and loving it.

~ there was a bit of sunshine today.

~ i went running this afternoon and am amazed how much energy it gave me.

~ and i didn't die of a heart of attack by the side of the road (you know i usually run only when chased).

~ sunset well after 5 p.m.

~ bloggy lists to clear my head.

hope your day was full of small happinesses.

Totally loved your list. It put a smile on my face as well! :)

Char said...

okay - that bar mitzvah thing is totally weird - she does know that is a coming of age thing for a 13 year old boy, right? are they going to read the torah?

This list is spectacular, the bar mitzvah thing is a little...not.

This reminds me of the Grace in Small Things site.

Everyone should make an effort to do these lists ... there are so many wonderful things that we just sweep under the carpet in our business. Too bad : ( ... thanks for reminding me that I have some reprioritizing to do : )

What a list.....
I am a list kind of person, but never a list like this.

I think I need to challenge myself to create a list such as this every day. Now wouldn't that be days and days filled with JOY!

Thank You!
