A Few of My Favorite Things

My first meme of 2009! Alyssa from On the Writers' Road Less Traveled tagged me in this.

The Rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Write down six things that make you happy
3. Post these rules
4. Tag six others
5. Notify me that you've tagged six others--or that you're not in a happy place right now...

Six things that make me happy:

  1. The smell of a freshly opened box of crayons.
  2. The look and smell of a new book before it's been opened.
  3. Waking up early in the morning to find snow already thick on the ground, and it's still coming down.
  4. Reading outside on a warm spring day.
  5. Diving straight into a pool for the first swim of the summer.
  6. The warm feeling of freshly laundered sheets.
As for tagging people....I don't know if anyone will do this. I hesitate to tag people, but I guess if they don't want to they don't have to. Ha ha.

(about the new book thing) My roommate in college LOVED new books. She would go to the bookstore, open up new books and sniff them. I always thought that was weird. She loved the feel/smell of books way more than she loved reading them!!

Thanks, Jason!
I've been behind on memes but will use this as an excuse to catch up.
And I love your list!

And what better way to find your happy place than to think on what makes you happy?

Meme... complete.

Thanks for this Jason.

Thanks for tagging me Jason. I've really isolated myself lately - not wanting to, just life is kind of taking over in an insane, crazy way!!!!!

For a 19 year old young man, you sure have a sophisticated, yet still young, list of things that make you happy! I'm impressed by your mature, yet playful answers.

I'll play along... ... ...

I'm with you on the freshly laundered sheets!

All these are good, but I was soooo gonna put Clean Sheet Day! Slipped my mind.

Love the new book one. Although, there something about an old, thumb-softened book, too.

Oh gosh, I've been meaning to do this for the last week, but I keep getting sidetracked...doing it now! Thanks for the tag :)
