walking in the rain, driving in the sun, writing, cooking, when my kids say they love me, finishing the laundry, disco balls mexican food,pulling weeds in the garden, cicadas, the smell of a field on a hot summer day, good coffee, Lynrd Skynrd, seeing other people randomly fall up stairs, bonfires, crickets, the sound of frogs at night in the spring, a cold glass of Guinness, Wii sports, the sound of my husband when he laughs when something is truly funny, life in general.....
Food in the cupboard Money in my bag Smiles and Laughter on the faces of everyone Kind words Talking to my sons Clean sheets Comedy programmes Wendys New Zealand winning against bigger Countries My Computer Happy sleeps Money oh I said that already
Being with my son and husband Drinking an ice cold beer at the swimming pool (or several) Nice glass of wine with a wonderful rare steak Hanging with my friends at a movie Or of course, hubbing with you guys
Riding my jet-ski 100 full throttle. Having massage Sitting in a spa with a glass of champagne Divulging in prawns(of course) Running in the rain Sleeping in Acting in theatre in front of a packed house. Stepping in another world. Finding my toe-nail clippers after days of not finding them.
Eating cookie dough with my children. A clean Kitchen. Bread baking. Seeing plants spouting in the garden. Sunshine and rain. Sewing. Chatting with friends. Birds. Flowers. Learning new skills. Chickens and bunnies. Taking pictures. Reading. Playing the piano.
