What Makes SuddenlySusan Happy

I have a new pen pal at Letter Writing Project.  I found her blog introduced on another blog I follow. She had a great idea that I wish I had thought of. She posts up simple questions and invites the reader to send her a card/letter with the answers to the questions. Yesterday's question was "What makes you happy?"  I had such a good time writing her a list that I decided to share on my blog. 


These are in no particular order.


Sunshine, Thai iced tea, writing, photography, snow days, going to the movies, a good, blue medium point pen, flowers, talking with my son on the phone, motorcycling, music, hiking, visiting our grandkids, ice cream, mowing the lawn, blogging, working, reading, making greeting cards, helping others, baking, dining out, going for coffee tea with friends, having people over for dinner, playing with my dog, listening to my husband laugh, going for long drives, picnics, the beach, receiving hand-written letters from friends and family,shopping at thrift stores, yard sales, making my husband laugh, a text from anybody, parades, hot chocolate, potlucks at work, hot sunny days, road trips, new recipes, curry pumpkin at my favorite Thai restaurant, a fresh haircut and highlight.

To be continued ...

What makes you happy?

love, susan

    1. Back at you. 50 is the new 40! My half-sister just turned 60 yesterday. Hard to believe.

  5. Funny, you can tell a lot about us by our answers. And where we live. You say "hot sunny days" and I say a warm sunny day!

  6. The Letter Writing Project - you're right... that's a great idea! I checked out her blog, and I wonder how she will keep up with all the letters! But what a way to help preserve a vanishing art form and gift... the handwritten snail mail letter.
