My sister Yutha sent me this link.
It's a blog called 1,000 Awesome Things.
I haven't read the whole thing, but I like the concept.
A simple list of things that make you happy.
The book was released this week, and here is the trailer.
Let's see...what makes me happy?
A drawer full of clean socks.
Poking my cat's feet and watching his toes spread.
Warm chocolate croissants. Creme caramel. Espresso. Preferably all at once, and in Paris, outdoors, with a loved one.
The smell of cedars on a hot summer's day.
Sharp knives and scissors in the drawer where I left them.
Finding a parking meter fully paid, then putting in change for the next person.
Going to a used bookstore and stumbling across the Exact Book I forgot I was looking for.
An apple peel that comes off in one, long piece.
Kissing a baby's wrist, or the back of the knee or the nape of the neck. Kissing a baby, basically.
Being dragged off to a party and discovering someone with close friend potential.
The smell of lilacs and lily-of-the-valley in the spring. Also sun-warmed earth and cut grass.
A raspberry that falls off the bush without effort.
An industrial sized roll of brown paper.
A full moon.
Finding my favourite mug in the cupboard and not in the sink.
Saving a worm from death on the driveway.
Being the first one to read the newspaper. But being second means I can rip out stuff. Tough call.
New magazines in the mail. Parcels in the mail are exciting, even when they contain dental instruments and not chocolate or books.
Oh, I could go on and on. So many things make me happy.
What about you? What would be on your list?
