Silly Little Things

First and foremost, what makes me happiest in life are my family and my pets. There are lots of little and fun things that always make me smile. These things are also important because if it brings a smile to your face or brings you some enjoyment, it adds a positive glow to your being and can also lower your blood pressure. Here are just a couple of my silly and simple little things:

1. A refreshing glass of freshly brewed iced tea with a slice of fresh lemon. It's an "Ahhhh" moment!

2. Wearing my fun jewelry like these cinnamon bun earrings I just bought from ScrumptiousDoodle. How does she make them look so real?

3. Watching the fawns lounge around in my backyard. This picture was taken yesterday. Now that the crab apple trees are producing apples, they are always in my yard.

4. Sitting on top of a sand dune and looking down at the Lake. So relaxing.

5. Coming home from work to find that my husband has cleaned the entire house and my kitchen actually sparkles!

So those are my silly little things. What are yours?


  1. Your #1 is a fave of mine also! I love my iced tea, with a slice a lemon...mmmm, nothing else quite like it in the world!

  2. Ditto to #1! That's the best. :)

  3. Those aren't silly at all.
    Mine would be Duke of course, all my craft toys and my camera, my computer where all my friends live and a good cup of coffee with caramel macchioto creamer (don't know if I spelled that right)

  4. I wish I had fawns lounging around my home!

  5. How cute! You're so lucky to have fawns in your backyard! Wow! My favorite things are a good avocado, a warm sunny day, and sleeping in :)

  6. Wow! You did a great work! I love it! BTW, if you have etsy coupon you can share your coupon at

  7. The deer are so cute :) And a clean house/kitchen would make me smile anytime!!!

  8. I love my camera, birds, wildlife and beautiful landscapes!! A magic fairy coming in the middle of the night and cleaning my house would make me smile for days on end!!

    Sher, do you all work with opossums? If so, I have a question that I would like to ask. Please let me know if it is appropriate to ask it here or some other way. Thanks!!

  10. My daughter's dog, Murphy and my Dr. Who t-shirt!

  11. Things that make me happy are: my 2 year old daughter, sitting outside on my front porch drinking some chai tea while my daughter plays outside, taking pictures with my digital camera, blogging.

  12. #5 - I am always happy if the house is cleaner than I left it in the morning.

    Some other small pleasures:
    - Eating fresh, sun warmed raspberries, blueberries and grapes from my garden
    - Seeing Queen Anne's Lace bloom in the drainage ditches as I drive to work
    - The smell of coffee in the morning
    - A hot cup of tea on a cold rainy day

  13. They don't sound like silly little things at all.
    They sound like the recipe for happiness!

  14. That iced tea sounds really good about now...
    I have lots of silly little things, probably too many to name!
