Things That Make Me Purr.

The following is a "bliss list" I've borrowed from the current Oprah magazine. What makes you Purrrrr......?
  • The First Paragraph of a novel that completely captures you.
  • Walking through the madness of the city to the beads on an iPod.
  • Little neck kisses from someone who knows what he's doing.
  • Murder, She Wrote returns. Jessica always knows what to do!
  • Checking off the last thing on the Saturday to-do list.
  • Cranium
  • The halo of warmth from a radiator, heating vent or fire (especially in Seminary)
  • Throwing things out!
  • A great scalp massage from the shampoo lady at the hairdresser.
  • Catching a whiff of your favorite perfume as someone walks by.
  • Coming home to your old room and slipping underneath sheets washed by Mom, surrounded by old books, photos and a big collection of your "stuff".
  • Baking...anything! Cooking has a deadline, cooking is just about passing time.
  • Reaching the end of a hike and seeing the view from the top.
  • Taking a personal day.
  • Going to the doctor and finding out everything's okay.
  • Friends (real ones and the show).
  • Homemade whipped cream.
  • Friday night, 6:30 after a long, hard week.
  • Taking the soccer ball out of the air on a cross with a perfect, powerful, knee height volley to the side netting. (Okay, maybe not in December)
  • Being good at what you do. (And getting credit for it)
  • Having a baby fall asleep on your shoulder.
  • Watching someone you love get dressed for an evening out.
  • The Princess Bride.
  • Dessert for dinner.
  • The utter sense of peace you feel seconds before drifting off to sleep.
  • Stargazing...time seems to stand still.
  • Popcorn
  • Northern lights...knowing they've moved, but not noticing when it happens.
  • Waking up and knowing, by the muffled sounds outside, that is has snowed- a lot.
  • The smell of the first cup of coffee.
  • A foot rub given by someone who knows what she's doing.
  • The Saturday paper-the heavier the better.
  • Looking at pictures of your mother as a child.
  • Long e-mails from an old friend, especially a funny old friend.
  • A child smiling at you in the grocery store line.
  • A big plate of pasta.
  • Porch-sitting on a summer night.
  • Laying on the grass watching the bats come out.
  • Wearing a hat, just because you want to.
See how much more fun I'm having because I'm wearing a hat!
