Ten Simple Pleasures

"Name ten of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick ten people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used."


In no particular order…
1. A delighted smile
2. A hug and murmured “I love you” from a niece
3. A marvelous idea
4. The idea turning out even better than imagined
5. Giggling
6. Making new friends
7. Spending time with old friends
8. Exchanging knowing glances
9. Hearing my grandma’s enthusiasm of my writing
10. Singing
(Did you honestly think I could stop at ten? Let’s make it an even dozen…)
11. Getting a clear idea across in a foreign language that I love (i.e. ASL)
12. Foothills


I don't think I know ten bloggers that haven't already done this, but...
Debboggy
Purple Kangaroo
Georgiana
Norma
Beckie
Jessica

I love this idea Amy!

What a great idea! It's a great exercise in appreciation, and probably the best thinking I've done today. Now, I just need to figure out how to find the other FW bloggers so I can tag someone.

Thanks Amy. This was fun. Wrote mine at the coffee shop this morning.

So....this was NOT fair, b/c you listed some of the ones I wanted to say! ('specially the spoken idea sounding better than it thought one!) I had to think hard for new material, lol ;-)
