Some Things

It’s been a while since I’ve done a list so decided tonight might be a good time to do one of some things that have brought me pleasure lately.

*Central air conditioning!  It’s hotter than hot here in NJ lately!

*Listening to our local radio station with its interviews with people from local organizations, some who I know, trivia contests, “swap ‘n’ shop”, and “talk of the town”, as well as playing songs considered “oldies” but that I know most of the words to.
*Sipping iced tea and reading a book while waiting at a coffee shop for a friend to join me for lunch.
*Meeting friends for breakfast and lunch---love my summer time freedoms!
*Baking blueberry cake and eating it with vanilla ice cream!
*Watering the plants and filling the bird baths.

*Spending lazy afternoons watching crime drama reruns.
*Donating usable but unwanted items to Goodwill.
*Trimming some bushes early in the day.
*Puttering in the kitchen while singing along to a favorite cd.
*Watching bees enjoying the blooms on the Rose of Sharon outside the kitchen window.
*Watching the lightning bugs rise up out of their hiding places at twilight and seeing how high they go.
*The way the setting sun lights the underside of the trees.
*Feeling the fan stirred air cooling me as I lie in bed at night.

I love your list! Gave me good feelings too! When we make an effort to think about the ordinary things in life that make us feel good I think it promotes peace. And wow... NJ is getting beat up this summer. Glad you have central air. Thank goodness for ice cubes too!
