What Makes You Happy?

Well it’s Friday and what a long week it has been.  It has been a strange week for everyone.  I read something this morning that said fear and anxiety is being experienced by almost everyone right now.  In a strange way this makes me feel better. Not because so many people are experiencing this but because I know that I am not the only one worrying about the state of thing right now.  I’m not in this alone.

So today, and this may not be the best time to ask, I ask what makes you happy?  All of this other stuff aside, what do you do that makes you happy?  I will tell you some of the things that make me happy, then you can tell me yours.

I like to take pictures.  This morning it was a beautiful morning.  The sun was shining and the wind was blowing just a little, and the air was soft.  You know what I mean?  I don’t know how to describe it except with the word soft.  On my way to work I stopped three times to get pictures.   I just saw the light in some amazingly beautiful ways and I just had to stop and get a picture.  When the lighting is right you never know if it will look like that again.

    I love this cherry blossom tree.  This is road I travel every day but I’m usually going the other way and miss this morning sunshine.  I saw it in my rear view mirror and turned around to get a picture.

This precious farm I pass on my way to work.  I love to see it in every season.  Check it out below when it snowed just a little a couple of months ago.

     If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook  you know how much I love church steeples.  I love the way you can see this one through the Bradford Pear trees.  This Is Watson’s Chapel Church.  Very close to where I work.

  This is the lake near my house and I never get tired of taking pictures of it.

I like to read.  O.K. I am going to tell you that I have gotten into the Elin Hilderbrand books.  She writes books that are set in Nantucket. She writes a lot of those beachy reads you take on vacation with you.   And she writes them in series.  I just finished a series of three books.  I started another series and and I am listening to my second audio book.  These are not really what I would call romance novels or I wouldn’t be reading them. I don’t get into a lot of that.  Most of these have a bit of mystery to them in one way or another.  I am happily hooked and reading  away.  All of these, luckily, I have been able to get through he Tennessee Reads, online, program.  FREE!!!!

I like to knit.  I like nothing better than starting a knitting project and winding the yarn and picking my needles and starting to see something slowly start to take shape with my own hands.

I like to write.  This is something I have been doing more of since I started this blog and I have so been enjoying it.

But what I like the best, most and absolutely makes me my happiest of all times is my precious friends and family.  I love spending time with them.  Whether it is going out with them or getting together with them at one another’s homes or even just catching up with them on the phone, I love it.  I feel like my home is my quiet zone.  My husband and babies make a wonderful sanctuary for me at home.  My happy place is with my loved ones and there’s no better place to be.


 My Happy Place

So what makes you happy?

Always remember,

Love your day your way!!!

  1. Well amongst other things Lisa, your blog and it’s photos make me happy. I love the cherry blossoms, and you are far ahead of my cherry tree, I don’t have blossoms and my cherries don’t arrive until late June or early July. Your cat and dog are cute too. Today bike riding made me happy also.
    One thing that makes my day start beautifully is the happy dance and good morning hug I receive from my son, it’s a fun thing to start the day. Today we hugged and hopped 360 degrees! LOL

  2. Your pics are definitely a happy place. Mine, like you, is at home with what matters. This has been a week for going within and connecting with the Universe for some guidance. I’m getting lots of messages, which hopefully I can interpret into some sort of blog.
