Our senses....

I love the little things that make me smile and start my heart singing. Some of these are favorites for a lot of people, others may be unique to me.

  • Watching puppies and kittens play
  • Listening to a baby or toddler laugh
  • Seeing fields of wild flowers
  • The smell of leather
  • Organizing almost anything!
  • Listening to the soft sounds of my wind chimes
  • Hearing the waves lapping on the shore
  • Seeing an elderly couple still obviously in love
  • Watching hummingbirds and butterflies
  • Lining up my pens on my desk, just the way I like them
  • Making the wrinkles disappear when I'm ironing (rarity)
  • Good, I mean REALLY good (creamy) ice cream
  • The odors of things baking - bread, brownies, etc.
  • Flowers blooming - bright and colorful
  • Watching the head on my vacuum twist to the side
  • Fresh fruit, bought at a fruit stand
  • Daisies (white & yellow), black-eyed Susans and sunflowers
  • Comedies (TV, movies, books, cartoons) that make me laugh out loud
  • Watching the ocean waves on a moonlit night
  • The smell of night blooming jasmine
  • 50's music and dancing like no one is watching 
  • Seeing my husband smile - melts my heart
What are some of your little things?


  1. Hi, Donna - I LOVE your list. 21/22 of your points are so true for me that I could have easily included them on my own "Favourite Things List." Except for the part about "ironing." Ironing is never going to appear on my list of favourite anything....unless someone else is doing the ironin for me! #MLSTL

    1. LOL! I can't remember the last time I ironed...although I do have one in the house. It was fun building the list and I know there are things I left off. So who knows, there might be a new list in a few months. have a great day!!
