bliss list

It's Friday and I'm sharing a few things that quietly made me happy, content, pleased, joyous this week:

1 - Had a long phone conversation with my oldest son.  That's definitely noteworthy because he is notorious for not answering calls and for keeping conversations brief.  But I must have caught him at a generous moment because we chatted and chatted.  I love my sons!
(they don't ever read this blog, so they don't know when I talk about them :))

2 - Got some pretty spring flowers planted on my deck so now when I look out the kitchen window I have color and flowers and pretty things to catch my eye.

3 - I'm leaving this afternoon for a weekend with my best friend and we're going to sit and talk and talk and talk and maybe do a little crafting and then talk some more.  Best friends are the greatest!

4 - I'll be teaching my first art class this month.  I'm offering a small two hour art journaling workshop and am so excited to be sharing what I've learned and am still learning.

5 - My scales continue to show a slow and steady weight loss (I've lost 22 pounds since January 1) and I'm so pleased that the progress continues even with an occasional relapse.  I have about 5 pounds to go! :)

My bliss list Friday is inspired and hosted by Liv at Liv Lane - join in, won't you?  We can all use a little shared joy!


  1. My daughter never reads my blog either so don't feel alone. My brothers are like that - they like short conversations and I have to call them.

  2. What a great week you had! Congrats on the weight loss.

  3. wow - congrats on the teaching gig! can't wait to hear all about it. and there is nothing greater than a weekend with your best friend. enjoy.
