Thursday Thirteen....


1.... Open toed shoes. I love sandals and I hate to wear shoes. When winter comes I begrudgingly begin to wear shoes.
2.... Sunsets and sunrises. I used to see many sunrises when I had to drive Pilot to school. Those were really great times for us to drive and be blessed by God's display in the sky!
3....Chocolate. Anything chocolate.
4.... Well, those of you who know me already know this is a given. A phone call from Pilot. It's the next best thing to being here in person!
5.... Phone calls from friends! I love when friends (and family) call because they want to talk. It means they are thinking about me!
6.... A great book! I have several on order which should be coming soon!
7.... Flowers. I love to receive flowers from my sweetie!
8.... Not having to do the dishes! Sometimes that means I've cooked and Pilot Dad has done the dishes. But, more often than not, we have gone out to eat!
9.... Studying God's Word. It does more than make me happy, it brings meinfinitee joy!
10.... Having a clean home! *sigh* I love to come into the house after it has been cleaned. There is just something calming about everything in its place and in order.
11.... Sitting on my patio looking at the flowers which my sister helped me plant in June. It's really quiet and restful. A lot of times Pilot Dad and I do our daily Bible reading out on the patio.
12.... In the fall I love to drive up in the mountains and look at the fallfoliagee. I come back relaxed and happy.
13.... I am MOST happy when I am walking in His will for me!

#1 caught my eye. I hate wearing shoes. I love sandals and flip-flops. Great list.

My list is up. Have a wonderful Thursday. Take-Care...

Lisa said...

Chocolate. Amen to that.

My TT is also up. Took all day, so next one starts on Tuesday! Thanks for the list!


Louise said...

One of the things about summer I love (sort of similar to No. 1) is not wearing jackets - I really hate jackets.

My TT is up.

Juggling Mother said...

Good list - it's always nice to think about things that make you happy.I'm not a big fan of the phone calls - they always come at the most inconvenient times! I love having a clean house, but not cleaning it - oh the dichotomy! And eating out is great for not having to cook AND not having a ny dishes:-)

my TT is up

Raggedy said...

Lovely list, thanks for sharing!

swilder said...

I love your list! But it was your "name" that caught my eye and drove me to your site.

Pilots are very much on my mind. That subject made MY list today!

Lazy Daisy said...

Wow, I can totally relate. Great list of simple pleasures. My TT is up.

Stacy said...

Wonderful list, so many of these would be on my list as well. Especially the chocolate, a good book, a clean home and lovely flowers blooming! The sunrises/sunsets and fall foliage are not too shabby, either - great list!

Have a wonderful day, mine is up too...

Lady Jane said...

Chocolate and God! (Not in that order, however) Great list!

Mine is here.

Susan said...

Great list of things that make you smile and make you happy. I agree with so many of them....I LOVE not having to do dishes. I hired someone to help me with my's the best money I have ever spent...and yes, I LOVE coming home to a clean house.

My TT is up here. Hope you'll drop by!!
