10 things...

One of my favorite people in the whole wide world, Sarah over at bee house hives, "tagged" me yesterday to tell 10 simple things that make me happy. Libby was a little annoyed that she wasn't chosen.

But I told her that she needed to be a blogger to play. Upon hearing that she requested use of the computer and her own camera. Chickens...they can be so high maintenance.

Anyway...here goes.

grey skies and rain. Friday night. dusk. newborn baby breath on my neck and their wrinkly little frog legs. laughing so hard my eyes water, my stomach hurts and I can't breathe (and maybe even need to cross my legs...just in case!) being taken for a drive by my hubby. geese flying overhead. a handwritten note in the mail. a stack of books from the library and a whole day with nothing to do. fresh brown eggs from my own backyard.
Whew! There. I kept it to 10. But I could go on and on.
Simple pleasures for a simple girl...there are so many.
And if you are reading this...consider yourself TAGGED. If you do play...leave me a comment so I can come and read what makes you happy!

Awww, tell Libby she's so gorgeous she can just keep be a blog model.

Sunday afternoons - my day to do nothing. Just wish I could read faster to get in all those books I have stacked by my bedside!

Tell Libby I think she's a very lovely hen. Your list was lovely, too. Just like you:-).

I love how you captured Libby and let her have her moment of glory.

Your list and the way you wrote it.. makes me smile and laugh.. just reading of someone laughing so hard that they might pee their pants makes me start.. to laugh. Not to pee.
Have a good day!

Love the list. I personally think simple pleasures are the best.

Yesterday I heard this --
Want to be happier? Be grateful.
Sums it up for me.

She looks like one pretty *ahem* unhappy (shall we say) Henny Penny. Rather reminds me of myself during *that* time of the month. :)
