What makes me smile?

As I've gotten older I have started to spend more time and energy on the things that everyone else in my household likes/wants/needs and have somehow forgotten exactly what it is that I enjoy, myself!

SO! Every time I see something I do genuinely enjoy, I pop it on my list!

So far, my list includes (in no particular order, and not limited to):


  • My Family (a given!)
  • Laughter
  • Hedgehogs
  • Peter Gabriel+KateBush
  • A good deal
  • Photography
  • Old Cameras
  • Painting
  • Justified
  • Banoffee Pie
  • Moscato
  • Fluffy Slippers
  • Anything super spicy
  • Pizza (with black olives, jalapeno peppers and pineapple!)
  • Dragon Fruit
  • Old Westerns
  • MacGuyver
  • Charles Bronson (The Actor)
  • Katydids
  • Cicadas
  • Spanish
  • Hindi
  • Bollywood movies
  • Books
  • Leggings and Yoga Pants+baggy sweaters (in the house!)
  • Fall
  • Clean laundry, when it is ALL done, for about 5 minutes!
  • Skype, with family
  • Hats
  • Pumpkins - anything related to pumpkins!
  • The middle of the night, or early morning when it is dead silent and peaceful
  • Stargazing (actual stars, not famous people!)
  • Oz (HBO's. not Wizard of...)
  • Carnivale
  • Just about anything with Sean Bean!
  • Take That
  • Shady Maple Smorgasbord
  • The way my daughter says mustache! (ushpash!)
  • Raspberry pink anything
  • Crunchy leaves
  • Darts
  • Bowling
  • Older classical movies
  • Old music
  • Black and white photos
  • Abandoned places
  • Poetics, poets and the written word
  • Mary Poppins
  • Bill Bailey
  • Theramins!
  • Bill Bailey on a Theramin! 
  • Eggs Benedict
  • Red Dwarf
  • Dr Who
  • Gardening
  • Old records and reel to reel tapes


There are more, I am sure, like Johnny Cash and good friends, dark ale and the beach, English pubs, fish and chips, jumbo prawns and roasted parsnips! I really could be here all day!

I wonder what your lists would look like!?

Have a relaxing Sunday!

Books. Listening to the rain. Memories of my Grandma. I like OZ on HBO and Wizard of, too. Watching the Food Network on the weekends. Naps. Love naps.
