Happiness And Wonders

"If only we'd stop trying to be happy we'd have a pretty good time."

-Edith Wharton

I got tagged! My good buddy Wil, sent me a very cute little meme to do, it's really easy and it left me feeling kinda good inside. It helps one's mood to focus on the good things that surround all of us and that are at the same time in the eye of the beholder. Here's the idea, "List Ten Things That Make You Happy (In No Particular Order), And The Tag Five People To Do The Same." Here is my ten...

1. Berkeley in autumn.
2. The look on my cat Elvis's face when he sleeps.
3. A caramel apple cider from Starbuck's, on a cool autumn day.
4. Naps outdoors by the pool.
5. Christmas cookies
6. David Duchovny
7. A really good spooky movie
8. Photography. I love my camera.
9. A warm soft, fuzzy sweater, right out of the dryer.
10. French Kissing

There you go, there is my 10 things, and here are the five people I will be tagging. I wonder how many will tag the challenge? Now, go hop over to Wil's journal and take a look at this awesome entry! Thanks Wil, you always send the best memes.

1. Steven
2. Maryanne
3. Patrick
4. Deborah
5. Phinney

Oh myomyomyomy!

I am such a friggin' dummy, Carly! And now the whole world will know it, too!

It took me a whole day to figure out how to add links to my sidebar. It took two whole days to figure out how to add multiple pictures to the body content...

But I still for the life of me cannot figure out how to add links to the body of my entry, and I've been futzing with it for about 3 hours today!

In addition, it seems to take about a year to load my stupid blogspot blog whereas it took about 5 seconds to load the aol blog. Friends are complaining that they can't leave comments there either. Well that's what I get for adding all those huge picture files, I suppose...

I hate this!!!!!

I don't want to let you down, darlin', but unless someone can tell me how to add links to the body of the entry,(in language for dummies) I'll have to post my 10 happy things on my defiled AOL journal!

PS: I already asked Gabreale to help me and she just told me how to add links to my sidebar, which I've already figured out.

So I know that I feel all warm and bubbly inside that you've included me here... but unless someone can help me out .... you know what the alternative is!

Sorry! (I already know what my 10 things are, but I'll wait to hear from you before posting them to my aol journal.

XOXOX

Clothes right out of the dryer is one of my favs too. Pickle napping will be on my list! I'll be doing mine tomorrow.

Nice answers, and I love the photos, especially the single leaf.

And I've just tagged you for the Quirky Meme. Instructions are on Cyber Chocolate. :)
