Okay, Sarah has begun a list of 100 things that make her happy.  Wow!  100!  I started a new category called 100 Smiles and I’ll add to it as I go along.  Time is short this morning so I’ll just touch on a couple of them.

I enjoy sitting out on the patio on a sunny morning working the daily crossword puzzle.  Strange thing is…I haven’t done it for ages.  I mean really.  I don’t think I did it even once last summer.  Don’t know why it popped in my head.  Maybe because we had a pretty day yesterday and we’re supposed to be sunny and in the 70s today so I was thinking how nice it would be if I didn’t have to go to work.  I’d love to just sit out on the patio and work the crossword puzzle.  I like reading the clues, pausing to watch the birds in the birdfeeders and houses and then filling in the blanks.  I can sit out there by the flower gardens and watch the bees and dragonflies do their thing while I soak up the sun.  Guess that’s going to be my first three smiles:

  1. The daily crossword
  2. Bird Feeders
  3. Flower Gardens
  4. Walking out of the building on the last day before spring/summer/Christmas break
  5. Finishing a MAJOR project at work
  6. daffodils
  7. Sitting in the spa with my morning coffee and looking at the stars
  8. Walking through a parking lot and realizing that I’m kind of swishing around in my jeans because they’re a little bit loose and they’re not glued to me
  9. Meeting a mini goal that I wasn’t sure I could meet
  10. Totally ripe watermelon – deliciously sweet and low calorie
  11. a crystal clear pool on a hundred degree day
  12. Riding the waves at the beach
  13. sitting on a balcony sipping a glass of wine with warm ocean breezes stirring the palm trees

Hello Pat,
I am sorry I have been MIA. Getting the house listed this week. It should be on the MLS by Wednesday. Had to stage for photo’s.
I got an e-mail from you but it would not open up. Could you please re-send it? Thanks 🙂
I have not see you on in a bit. Are you doing okay?

Hi Patty! Jeeze, I’ve been MIA too ~ Didn’t mean to drop off the face of the earth on you.

I Haven’t Been Blogging Because… nothing “weighty” to report? Disgust with myself for not being able to whip this weight thing? Yeah, all of that. I have missed you though, my bloggy friend!

May you always have a crossword to work while you watch the bird feeders in your flower gardens. 🙂

Sorry I just saw that the comment that you sent IS on my page. It just did not go through on the e-mail. Sorry
How are you?

Hi Patty!

I’ve been MIA too (busy at work) but am so glad you started your list! I love the bird feeders one – my mom is a bird-lover & growing up we always had a feeder in the yard.

I added a link to this post on my “Relax” page!
