My Happy List Part One


On June 11 Lavender Dreamer posted her Happy List, and I like the idea. See her list here
http://lavenderdreamstoo.blogspot.com/2013/06/my-happy-listwhile-i-catch-my-breath.html
Of course, my list is potentially so long I could do a happy list for very many posts, ha ha, so that's why I call this part one.

FLOWERS
You could probably guess that any pretty flower is on my list, and also any fragrant flower. The flowers in the vase are Canterbury Bells I grew. They typically have flowers the second year so we learn patience as we wait. This blue color is my favorite, they also come in white and pale pink.

VEGGIES
Delicious veggies that grow in my garden.

BOOKS
Any of thousands of books and authors. I recently bought and read Rhys Bowen's "Her Royal Spyness" which has an upbeat heroine, Georgie, 34th in line to the British throne.

HORSES
Horses. They are so graceful and often are so kind. The book "Horse Heaven" conveys a horse's thoughts quite well, I think.

Let me know if you decide to post a Happy List so I will be sure to visit and read it.

Hello Terra...Enjoyed reading your happy list.

Flowers, veggies and books would be on mine, too.

Hope you have a delightful Monday! Susan

Like yours, my "happy list" would be very, very long - there really is so much that makes me happy and grateful.
The flowers are beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen them over here.

koralee said...

It is so good to have a LONG happy list....your list makes me HAPPY today...xoxo

BLissed-Out Grandma said...

Nice list. Mine would start with flowers, too, especially at this time of year.

Tete said...

Love your happy list and I will have to work one into my blog soon, too. Its a great idea.
Hope you are having a good day- a good one here.

Great list!

I love your happy list, Terra! A beautiful and inspiring list.

Laurie said...

I can think of several things, I'll let you know when I do my list, will be happy to share on my blog!

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

I love positive posts with pictures of pretty flowers. This can be added to my happy list.

Kimmie said...

Wonderful list!

Denise said...

very nice happy list.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

I'm with you on all of it but horses. I've never been much for horses, though I hold nothing against them.

Teresa said...

Everyone should - I might if I find time to think in a short list (always so difficult for me to make anything, something short and brief ahahah) - make one of this before entering the Summer Vacationing and running around. So you could return and add more things and be so happy and blessed for keep adding to it.
Mine would start with your items too - I really like to wait and witness the Earth fruits (flowers, real fruits...) in my garden.
Thank you for the inspiration. And sorry for the long comment (told you ;)).
Yours,
Teresa

One of my other sweet blog friends, Ricki Jill, does a Happy List too on her blog, and I really love to read them.

Your flowers are soooo pretty, Terra. They look like a beautiful purple color in the picture. Flowers are magic, aren't they?

Let me know when you do your Happy List again. They are fun to read.

Love,
~Sheri

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, I love horses too! They are amazing animals.

Dorothy Borders said...

That's a lovely thought and a very happy list, one that would make most of us happy, I think. I'm going to work on my own list.

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

It's a good list! I thought books would be first!
Love the idea of a happy list!
Warmly,

Crystal Mary said...

You like all the best things.. how about fruit, from your garden. Love fresh vegies, and flowers and books..Yes horses also.. we have many beautiful things to cherish.

Daisy said...

I love this idea! Flowers and books would both definitely be on my list.

LadyCat said...

Love your happy list! I like everything on your list : )

Lynda said...

I will agree with 3 of your 4. I like to look at horses but don't ride them or take care of one. Books and food would probably be at the top of my list.

Sam I Am...... said...

I sort of do a happy list as every morning I write 10 things I am grateful for and most of those make me very happy!
I'll have to remember the Canterbury Bells when I get to my new digs so I can plant some. Gorgeous!
Horses....I've had a long, long love affair with them for sure!

Art and Sand said...

I love the idea of a Happy List.

I will have to start one.

I love yours.

Marilyn said...

Hi, canterbury bells are such pretty flowers. I had some two summers ago but need to have some again as they are a new favorite of mine. Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower. It seems we have a love of flowers in common.♥♫

Ann said...

Terra, thanks for stopping by my post today, yes we had a glorious time in Hardy, Ark. I love Mother and Daughter time.

Introverted Art said...

I would love to grow my own garden...maybe one day

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I would love to do a happy list more often. I like the way you did yours! We both have so much to be thankful for, don't we? I'll look for the book you mentioned! I need one more book! heehee! Enjoy your weekend my friend! Sweet hugs, Lavender Dreamer

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

I like seeing what makes you happy. I'm in to flowers and books too.

Right now I am just happy that I finally like my job!

Have a wonderful week, Terra.

What a great idea and I enjoyed your list very much. Blessings to you.

D. Jean Quarles said...

What a great idea! I love your happy list. Two years. Wow! That's a commitment for a flow, but they are really pretty!

Carol Z said...

Love this idea. I'm going to be thinking about it and putting one together.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I love your happy list, Terra. Flowers and veggies and books make my heart happy, too. ;)

Your review of Lincoln has me ready to rent it! Thank you. blessings ~ tanna

Amish Fiction Writer Sicily Yoder said...

Please post your book link on my Facebook page, and I will share it.

Simply Shelley said...

Those are wonderful things to make one very happy. I share some of the same. Thank you dear friend for your kind comments and prayers for me,they are so appreciated...blessings

Curtains in My Tree said...

I'll have to go over and see what this is all about just got back from my vacation and need to catch up

Debbie said...

I'm so late to this that I'm probably just ahead of part two. I would very likely put two of the four on my happy list, flowers and books. I love veggies too, but aside from broccoli, they don't actually make me happy. Horses are OK, but only from a distance.

This is a cute idea for a post and a great booster for an outlook on life.

ChrisJ said...

I love the idea of a happy list. I do believe I will have to make one -- if not several.

MeOfCourse said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I enjoyed reading your list. Very inspiring.

Be a sweetie,
