Raindrops On Roses

Who loves “The Sound of Music”?  I can’t be the only one who walks around the house belting out the soundtrack.  Right?  Right?  Anyway, I think it’s good advice to think about the things that make you happy whenever you’re in a funk.  Here’s my list:

1.  A long hike on a perfectly crisp October day in Virginia.

2.  Couch time with hubby – me reading, him watching BBC America.

3.  Perfectly brewed loose tea at my desk on a Thursday.

4.  The National Symphony Orchestra.

5.  Stepping off the beaten path to explore remote places in Europe.

6.  Kayaking with hubby in a beautiful nature preserve.

7.  Fresh farmers market veg.

8.  My library card.

9.  A handmade ceramic mug.

10.  Paintings by the sweet and talented Lane Palmisano.

11.  The Buffalo Sabres.

12.  The smell of plain soap.

13.  Surprise blooming in my garden.

14.  Biking along the Potomac River on Blue, my roadie.

15.  Fruit salad.

16.  The Musee de l’Orangerie in Paris.

17.  Fireflies in the backyard.

18.  Wines from the Russian River Valley, Burgundy and the Cotes du Rhone.

19.  Northern Virginia.

20.  Hubby.

I could keep going, but I’ll stop at 20!  What about you – what are some of your favorite things?
