happy things

Just as the wave cannot exist for itself,
but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean,
so must I never live my life for itself,
but always in the experience which is going on around me.
~Albert Schweitzer

I was tagged by the lovely Carolyn to list 10 things that make me happy.

A tough task, but here goes:

1. being at the beach with Mr. NK

2. all things autumn

3. hot cocoa and whipped cream

4. running at sunrise

5. creating

6. detective fiction

7. sunday morning breakfast at the cafe with Mr. NK

8. getting up early in the morning, sitting alone with my coffee and knitting

9. having a curled up kitty sleeping on me

10. northern exposure re-runs

If you're reading this...consider yourself tagged...go forth and list!!

Look who's got the shutterbug now!? Be still my beating heart!!

Happy Friday-eve!!

Sorry, I have to first say.. Northern Exposure! I just finished all of these, my cousin has the collection. This is funny.. what you learn about people.

You and Mr. NK sound like sweethearts :) I love that!

Your photos of the ocean.. I wish I could walk into them.

Expect for the whole running thing, great list.

That is one happy looking dog! I especially like it since my dogs (Basenjis) wouldn't go anywhere near the water. They would be to busy jumping from paw to paw trying to shake off the sand and giving me the "you'll pay for this later" look.
