My happy list

If you don't regularly read Kate's bog over at Foxs Lane,
you darn well should.
Kate is lovely,
her life is really interesting
and she has an amazing way with words and blog topics.

Yesterday, she reported the havoc that Mother Nature had inflicted
by way of rain and locusts.

But rather than wallow,
she made a happy list.
And is now encouraging people to do the same.

So here is my happy list for today:

a good hot strong cup of coffee
to start the day listening to rain on our tin roof
knitting pumping up the daggy music and
singing my heart out reading books out loud with my kids when our new kittens use the litter tray instead of the floor
under our bed  the spirit of Christmas that shines through
everywhere in spite of the commercial crap that pours down at this time of year
my children looking out for each other fresh summer fruit especially mangos
decorating the Christmas tree as a family
making a batch of perfect finger buns
looking through my fabric stash and dreaming about what
the fabric will become finding five minutes of quiet time to read pretty purple jacaranda trees everywhere when my children
laugh at one of my jokes

So go and visit Kate's blog,
stop and think about what is making you smile at the moment
and enjoy your day.

Thanks Tas, I've never seen this blog before!

Kate said...

Oh Tas, any list that contains strong coffee, knitting, daggy music, fabric and kids being nice to each other is my kinda happy list.
Thanks so much for playing along and for saying all those kind things about me and my blog. Your happy post actually made me cry a little.
I hope you and your gang have a wonderful, happy and fun weekend. X
