25 things that make me happy

Taking a cue from Alyson on this one.

  1. Planting flowers, shrubs, trees, vegetables, etc
  2. Anything computer-related: working on them, building websites, trying out new programs
  3. Snuggling up with Honey to watch television or a movie
  4. DVR
  5. Visiting my sister’s house on “Family Day”
  6. Going bowling with friends, even though I suck
  7. Cooking a meal and sharing it with people I care about
  8. Crawling into a comfortable bed when I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes open
  9. Computer-controlled machining
  10. A clean bathroom
  11. Kittens and puppies… practically any baby animal
  12. Dlisted – my guilty pleasure that often makes me laugh hysterically
  13. Getting the bills paid on time
  14. Peeing outside (in private places, of course). It makes me feel like a kid again
  15. Flamingos
  16. The sands of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park in Florida
  17. Finding a bargain online that has free shipping
  18. A fresh haircut
  19. Finding money in the pocket of a jacket that I haven’t worn for a year
  20. The “Bahama Mama” at Red Lobster
  21. Mom’s turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving

  1. Ay. What did we ever do without DVR’s?!?! And I love that you love flamingos. They are a “thing” in our family. We always have flamingo-themed events. It’s a Czech thing. :)

  2. @ Alyson: A new haircut can give such an ego boost, huh? BTW, your hair has been looking exceptionally fabulous lately!

    @ Caroline: Before I ordered my DVR, I did a little research online and came across a statement that basically said DVR is the greatest improvement to television since they added color. After having one for a few years, I couldn’t agree more.

    Flamingos are too cool. I didn’t realize it was a Czech thing, but when I was out walking in Germany, I noticed a pair of sheer curtains hanging in a window that had embroidered flamingos on them. A few blocks away was an artistic metal sculpture of two flamingos attached to the outside wall of a home. I would have never put Germany and flamingos together, but apparently the crazy birds have appeal worldwide!

  3. @ Wendy: The only time that I don’t use Google Chrome is when I’m forced to use something else; like when I’m installing updates for Windows and they make me use IE. I hate that…
