The Happy Tag

Helen Ginger at Straight From Hel just tagged me. I’m supposed to tell six things that make me happy. So here goes:

  • Flaming hot Thai green curry with shrimp

  • Chocolate ice cubes

  • Hand-knit wool socks

  • Zipoli's Adagio for Oboe, Cello, and Strings

  • Fresh flowers in a crystal vase

  • Warm blueberry muffins

  • Cats and kittens everywhere

So what makes you happy? Let's ask these dear people, who have been known to make me happy on more than one occasion:

Now if that doesn't make your day, I don't know what does. Go do the Happy Dance and enjoy another round of tag! Hehe.

I like curry, but "hot" is not for me (which admittedly is odd for someone from Texas, the land of the jalapeno). Everything else on your list sounds wonderful.

Thanks for listing your "happy" things.

I have developed an addiction to hot, after discovering the endorphin power for migraines! My fave is Mazetta's habanero sauce. Two bites on a hard-boiled egg will get rid of a headache, no lie.

Second that on the cats and kittens. I have one sitting on my lap right now keeping me warm on this cold Texas winter day. BTW cold days in Texas always seem so much colder than cold winters in Wisconsin where I grew up. Maybe that's because it was almost 80 degrees yesterday and today it's not supposed to get above 40. Yikes! How does one even plan for this kind of weather?

Whoops! Forgot to follow your advice and put in my link.

Flaming hot Thai green curry with shrimp! Yumm!!

Cool six. I got tagged a week and a half ago, and although I've sworn off tag games for half a year, I acquiesced (it was Dana Fredsti tagged me and well - she's such a sweetie) and I fell off the "tag-free" wagon just that once. I'm back at the 12 step meetings now, striving for my 30 day pin all over again. You can read my 6 things post at

But shhh - don't let my sponsor know!

Things that make me happy:
-Breathing through my nose
-Saturdays when my husband has off, too
-A really productive day of writing
-A painfully satisfying belly-laugh with my friends

Jackie, you need to format and post on your blog! Tries to sneak out of the real work, silly girl.

You do look very happy. The tag must have worked.

I'm with Helen. I can't eat hot food, but I do like curry.

What makes me happy is your tip about scheduling blog posts in advance. My whole week is scheduled. WooHoo! Thanks, Dani

I vote for the warm blueberry muffins. Throw in a big cup of cappuccino and I'm all set.
