happy lists

Bleargh, I have been battling a sinus infection. I am finally winning but I hate not being 100% don’t you? When I’m feeling like this I always have an urgent desire to clean up clutter, finally organize those photos, pare down my closet, go through my books and clear out , etc. etc…I think it’s because I am lying around looking at all that stuff and being reminded that it should all be done and though I am not really doing anything else, I don’t have the energy to tackle those tasks. Sheesh, and as soon as I feel better, off I go doing all the other things! Oh well. one day..

This picture was taken in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia. I was at the quaint Evangeline Motel Cafe  looking across to the old gas station. I always pop in anytime I am in the area for a cup of tea and some pie.They bake the best pies, with fresh valley fruit. Ah summer, not too far away now.

Here’s a little list of a few things I enjoy… to cheer myself up and maybe get you thinking of yours:) I love these kind of lists, never ending…
* Being the first one awake in the morning and having the house to myself
* Being the last one up and having a wonderful breakfast waiting for me that I did not have to lift  a finger for.
* Purring cats
* Smiling dogs

* The sound of a cork popping (called “cloop“)
* The smell of lilacs, basil, lily of the valley, ground coffee, salt spray, bacon cooking (as a new vegan, I STILL love it, might be the downfall of me yet), turkey roasting ( I know I know), the smell of pavement in the summer after a fresh rainfall, sheets after they’ve been dried outside on a windy sun filled day….
* New pens and paper and books
* Noticing something for the first time in a place I have been many times before and marveling that I never noticed it before. 
* The shock of cold when you first dip your bare foot into the Atlantic. Makes you come alive!
Ok that’s enough for now, remembering things I like always puts me in a good frame of mind. You too?
My photography course starts tomorrow! Friday! Looking forward to it. You can join up too! Click HERE
