spring always makes me happy

the long view

so much is making me happy this week....

discovering pictures I had forgotten that I took
changing the tablecloth and sofa pillows
writing love letters to grandparents
poking around Pinterest
baking with Sloane
tulip bouquets
a tidy house
bird song
walking the dogs
soft sunny mornings
time to work on projects
this song I wish I had written for Jeffrey
opening all the windows and turning on the ceiling fans

What is making you happy just now?

I like the shape of your list. Every once in a while everything falls into place, doesn't it? Like sand through the hourglass.

Oh, how I love spring!

Purring kitties are making me happy at the moment, but it seems I'm finding more happiness in life as a whole; spring is good stuff! Enjoy.

Debby said...

So glad that you are feeling happy. Spring will do that. Have a good week-end.

Simone said...

The quiet is bringing me happiness. At times, my soul craves quiet and right now, I'm enjoying every bit of it.

Marilyn said...

Strawberries, angel food cake, daffodils, and greetings from friends is making me happy today.

Hi Relyn,
Nice to find your blog. I like the variety I find here. I'm going to check out that book site you mentioned and put a four year pin in that leap day idea of yours!
Are you a teacher, too? I teach 4th grade.
New follower,

The warm weather we are having
Living in the country on a farm
finally getting WiFi in our house after a long absence from the internet

A great list! Mine is:

Seeing a pot of primroses from my kitchen window
Windows open (but no ceiling fans!)
Still having a fire some evenings
Hearing the oystercatchers
Buds on the lilacs

And Dolly Parton - thanks so much for this song, which I didn't know. I'm a big fan of hers!

Hugs to you -

Sweet list and lovely image, Relyn! Funnily enough, I was lately discovering images I took last summer and forgot about, shared one today. Happy right now is spring slowly arriving here, not having to wear so many clothing layers, a new painting taking shape on the easel, finding a great new tea, and it's hubby & I's 12th wedding anniversary tomorrow, so LOVE makes me happy. :o) Happy weekend ((HUGS))

Amy said...

Why, reading one of your lists, naturally! Happy weekend . . .

I've been writing at the beach this week, which always makes me happy. The sun has finally come out after 4 days of stormy days and nights! Alas, it's time to go home, which brings joys all its own. Always hard to say goodbye to the ocean though.
Hope your happiness continues right through the weekend, Relyn!

I love the way Spring
blossoms in your beautiful heart;
it just sings for souls
like yours:)

I am feeling happy by reminiscing of some happy memories, thinking about a bunch of daisies, buying a new Saree and dancing at a friend's wedding,pohoping that someone who is far away from me right now, would come back to me again and we will have some more amazing time together.

Very happy for this week of wonderful weather ~ little daily delights, sweeping off the deck and smelling the scent of Spring. Having a job I love with friends I adore, I am happy and so blessed! As are you my dear!k

Scrappy Grams said...

I love lists too! That's why I'm wondering why I neglect blogging them. hmm...what is that? I love how the window frames the formal garden. What is making content right now is that lovely, serene song "Kiss the Rain".

Sweet Tea said...

The smell of freshly mown grass.
A good, salty, Margarita!

HKatz said...

discovering pictures I had forgotten that I took

I love when that happens.

I also love now that daffodils are coming out everywhere. Cheerful flowers :)

Spring makes me happy, too. And this year it seems early and wonderful. We all live in anxiety here -- hoping it will stay. Yes, long walks. Still looking for Harry the Heron. And loving every minute!
