happy list

Things that make me happy ( in random order):

- time to read and a great book. A recent find is "The Tenth Gift" by Jane Johnson. A thought provoking book I read recently is "Three Cups of Tea - One Man's Mission to Promote Peace One School at a Time" - Greg Morteneon and David Oliver Relin

- dinner in the freezer after a busy day. Perogis are a great example and homemade ones are delicious and tender.

- giggles and hugs from T. There is something so uplifting about a child's laughter.

- a husband and son who love to clean (especially vacuum)

- quiet, sunny mornings in the garden - bees and butterflies in the lavender.

- a growing garden (and a small boy who wants to help!) Today T was falling into and out of my garden "tubby" which was full of tomato plant leaves. I have 2 zuccini growing!

- clean fresh sheets on the bed

- time for a cup of tea and crossword puzzle

- good friends to laugh with

- finding boy clothes my boy will wear in his size. I wish I could talk to a boys clothes buyer and explain - not all boys like sports or camoflauge, some boys are all about trucks or dinosaurs or other things. And boys come in all sizes - not just 2 and 6. (Ok - so that is a pet peeve - going into a store and finding racks and racks of girls clothes and one rack of boys clothes with little choice in style, colour or even size - pretty much you are supposed to take whatever is in your boy's size)

- the sound of D's car in the driveway and his key in the lock - he's home!
