For a smile as wide as a country sunrise!


The Rules:

1. List 10 things that make you happy. (Linking to them, sharing pictures, writing poems about them, telling jokes, etc. are all encouraged but not required.)

2. Tag 10 people who make you happy (and notify them of their tag).

My List Of Ten Things That Make Me Happy:

1. Coffee!  It is definitely the best way to start my day, with a nice hot cup of black coffee!

2. My Path To The River!  So beautiful to have such a lovely path to walk each day, just enjoying all the wonders of nature along the way.

3. Sitting At The River!  That truly is something that makes me very happy, to just sit on my favorite bench overlooking the river and watching all the bird activity or just enjoying the wonderful scenery.

4. Early Morning!  I am definitely a morning person and love to be up early and out on my deck with a cup of coffee before sunrise.

5. Sunrise!  Makes sense if I love early morning, I would also love sunrises too and it is so beautiful to watch the sun coming up over the hill and trees giving it’s golden glow to everything.

6. Listening To Birds Sing!  To me there is no better choir around than that of a symphony of birds singing early in the morning.

7. A Chipmunk On My Knee!  Something so simple and yet brings such joy and if there is any stress around it quickly disappears with a cute chipmunk on my knee filling his cheeks with peanuts.

8. A Bird On My Hand!  Having a bird sitting on my hand or just taking food from my hand certainly makes me happy and so far 18 different species have done so.  Plus I have had as many as 22 birds sitting on me at one time.  Such a joy!

9. Collecting!  Guess I’m just not the minimalist type of person, I enjoy having a room “full”, but not cluttered to the point of being just a mess.  I like things neat and orderly.  But I don’t like “empty”, with all the time I spend indoors during our long winters, an empty place would bring too much stress.

10. Playing With Muffin! These 10 things are not in any particular order, playing with Muffin each day definitely brings a LOT of happiness and fun for both of us!

Well, there we have my 10 things to add to my last list of 10 things and I know there are lots more that I could add to that list if I should ever receive this tag again.  Thanks once again Mrs. Holliman!










That’s it for now folks, have a wonderful evening or morning, wherever you happen to live, please stay safe and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • Yes, it is below freezing at night and above freezing during the day. The good news is two rivers had the ice break up this week! The frost will be with us to the end of the month at night. Looking forward to our fabulous Summer that is beautiful but short.

      • Yes, snow has come every month of the year here but usually not as much or frequently. Looking forward to seeing some green rather than a landscape of white. Hope to see some green leaves in a few weeks! Have a great weekend!

      • July is the only month we have not had snow here. Our winters have been getting longer and colder over the last 20 years, very noticeable in the last 5 years. I think the short daylight is what I find the hardest though. Yes, looking forward to the return of those green leaves, shouldn’t be long now.
        Thanks, you as well!

      • Thanks for letting me know! Yeah, I’m extra slow these days, I’m spending too much time outdoors enjoying the nice weather. Always happens after a long winter!😁😸🌞😎🚶‍♂️

      • No problem! It happens! Happens a lot with me too!


  4. I like these things, as well, except I’m not much into collecting. I used to be until I moved several times. It’s too much hassle to move so much stuff plus we went from a house to an apartment and don’t have as much space. Give Muffin a hug! 😺 ☕️ ☕️🌻 🌞

    • Yep, I agree, I don’t really collect now, though I still have a lot from my collecting days. But I had to get rid of 70% of my stuff when I moved to a small apartment. And it is a hassle when moving day comes. In one year I had 3 moves! That was a lot of boxes to move around!
      I shall do that, I’m sure she will appreciate it! Happy Friday!😃😺🌞☕☕

      • Yes, it certainly is, though when I was younger I actually enjoyed it. For several years I moved on average every 14 months and loved it! Now, I prefer to stay in one spot. I have been here now for 4 years.😁😸

    • Yes indeed, I’m a nature lover, spending time with the animals and all nature is very relaxing. Plus animals generally become very friendly with me quite quickly. I have been told that my voice has a calming effect on animals.
      Thanks for reading and for your nice comment Ananta! I hope you have a wonderful day!😃😺🌞☕☕
