I like........


Taking a leaf out of Mel's book.....

Things I like today

The smell of Hyacinths on entering my sitting room

The sun shinning in through the window .... even if it does show up the dust!

A cup of coffee with some illicit cream in, that I'm going to drink whilst in the bath

The shocking pink blankie on my navy blue sofa, waiting for me to snuggle under.

The host of little birds feeding in my garden, better than watching TV

The thought that in a while if I wrap up warm enough I could drive over the hills to Buxton with the roof down to go get the weekend food on this startlingly blue sky day

My lovely dog sitting at my feet

Do you know I think I might put the roof down in my little mini and pop down to get the shopping too - need to wrap up warmly though! I adore hyacinths too - they remind me of my Mum, but in a happy way. (she died 11 years ago) and I'm happy, also, with the sunshine, a coffee and my two dogs sitting at my feet as I type, as is the case just now! Simple things, but wonderful!

Hey There!
This is lovely! First thing in the morning I drink my coffee, news on in the background, & catch up on blogs. This is a splendid read to start my day!
Love to you~

I have grown hyacinths, for the first time in years, this winter and they are about to flower!

Mel said...

Hyacinths.......oh how wonderful......

Now see--your list made me happy!
Roof down, blankie on sounds like a good deal to me.

I think that's close to 'wrapped in a blankie on the patio'!
Works to do that when it's all of 27F--it just doesn't work too long. LOLOL
