Things That Make Me Happy

Yup, today is a day that just screams for a list of the things that make me happy. I suppose that you could also say one or two of them are guilty pleasures.

- cold pizza for breakfast. Throw in an ice cold glass of Coke (regular ONLY) and that would be perfect.
- watching "The Housewives of Orange County". I KNOW it is terrible. I can't seem to help it.
- my garden. There is something very therapeutic about pulling weeds.
- silence. I love to sit in my house and listen to the silence.
- popcorn, made by me, with just the right amount of butter and salt. Not the pre-packaged microwave popcorn mind you.
- old movies on Turner Classic Movies. I don't care for Ted Turner but this channel is genius.
- trying a new recipe and having it come out just right. This week it was "Pork Medallions with Apple Cider Sauce". Yum!
- when I am reading my Bible and the light goes on and I think, "Wow, I never thought about it in that way before."


  1. Funny, I love cold pizza in the morning, too. But I don't think I could handle the Coke. :)

    And since we "discovered" popcorn made on the stove, there hasn't been one bag of microwave popcorn bought. Yes, indeed!

    And my husband is watching TCM right now!

    Loved this list -- very fun.

  2. The BEST way to do popcorn is even easier than on the stove. Take a paper lunch bag, put 1/4 cup of unpopped popcorn in the bag, fold the top down twice, staple with one staple and put in the microwave on the popcorn setting. Perfect every time. And you control how much butter and salt.
