The Smiley Stuff

Bean tagged me for a meme that originally asked what were 'six unimportant things that make you happy'. Bean changed it to 'six silly things that make you happy'. I'm sticking with Bean since these things aren't unimportant (to me anyway). These small things contribute greatly to my happiness.

1.. I love old signage (see awful photo above). I love the stuff that makes you think of the '30s, '40s and '50s. I'm old fashioned in many ways and I like to daydream about the past. Old stuff seems to be filled with much more style and panache (in my wee humble opinion).

1a.. I also love hand painted signs (ala those shown here, via Slimbolala).

2.. Summer treats. I love sno-cones, milkshakes, pies, and smores. But I can be healthy too; I also love peaches, cherries, and any berry that I can get my paws on.

3.. Gliding on my skateboard. I'm still only brave enough to ride around the warehouse when no one is there. It's smooooooooth.

4.. A good cup of coffee. 'Nuff said.

5.. Smooth rocks that you can put in your pocket. Not rocks that stop your skateboard from gliding (see number 3).

6.. Kidlet's embellishments on her schoolwork. The work she brings home is always decorated with little doodles of happy faces, critters, awards, stars and hearts.

I'm terrible about tagging so I won't but don't let that stop you from doing this meme. Even if you just do it mentally or jot your answers down on a piece of paper, thinking about the things that make you happy equals good.

awesome list! I love old signs, too - my favorite right now is the 'rancho sierra' motel on 4th street, I think :)

I agree with the rocks. And the signage. And the coffee.
