Happiness is …

Watching great tennis from The Australian Open;

Sitting in front of a warm fire with a sleeping dog on the rug at my feet;

Seeing snowdrops bobbing their brave heads;

Knowing that the beach is waiting;

Being alive and well.

Colour of Happiness

    1. Hi Joni, a wise doctor highlighted to me once that the most important things are those we put at the end of lists not at the top. So, you can see where I put health too! I’d add that the health of those we love is key to ours. I tend to call it all ‘peace of mind.’

  1. Yes, the women’s final last night was wonderful…great players both of them. I love the colour of the Dahlia? and I love the contrasting picture you paint:):)

    1. Hi Olga, yes it is a Dahlia ~ out of season I know and I was very aware of the Autumnal look compared to the Wintery look out the window when I was writing. But then, again, seasons are all upside down across the globe so it seemed appropriate.

      As for the tennis, what a Ladies’ Final and I sobbed when Murray lost today. He’s a hero of mine!
