Thursday Thirteen....

Thirteen things that make me
1. MWM - My Wonderful Man
2. My boys - I'm blessed with two wonderful sons.
3. My grandchildren - five beautiful children who light up my life.
4. Sunshine - oh doesn't it make you feel better?
5. Sitting in the garden - when it's warm and sunny!
6. Shopping - even for food!
7. Talking to a friend - about nothing in particular, just chatting.
8. A good laugh - Peter Kay usually does it for me.
9. A nice bottle of wine - Red, white, rose, I don't care.
10. Good food - Mmmmm.
11. A lovely cup of tea - milk, no sugar, so refreshing.
12. Listening to the birds - usually whilst sitting in the garden when it's warm and sunny.
13 Music - my taste is eclectic.

Nice to see you back in blogging land. It doesn't take a lot to make us happy does it?

Happy TT. Let's test number 13 with my random lyrics game.
Up for the challenge.
Thanks for visiting my neck of the woods.

Be well and enjoy the day

your list sounds perfectly lovely...

smiles, bee

What a great list :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog again. I enjoy visiting yours. I'm not tracing my family tree; just trying to get passports for my two daughters. Apparently they got issued with "short" ones when they were born and the Passport Office will only accept "long" ones. Grr.I guess sometimes size DOES matter!!

Cream said...

I love your list.
Your life is Sunny, Akelamalu. You are blessed!

Annelisa said...

I totally agree with all of your choices, apart from:
(1) - haven't got one of those. Haven't even got a grotty one :-S and (6)- I will never quite get the hang of the fun of shopping (well, unless I get some actual money to spend, I guess... then it could be quite fun! :-) )

Where's your knee going without you? When I saw your knee was 'getting there', I wondered why you weren't too!! :-D

Sounds like you had a great day. Hope you also have a great weekend ahead!


Wonderful list! I love it all...I do admit to honey in my tea and I must have coffee in the a.m.~
I can't drink wine - gives me a rotten headache - even the good stuff.
But we are blessed!!!

Linda said...

What a lovely list - especially the sun and the garden while having a nice cup of tea (though some biscuits would be nice, too!)

Catch said...

mist1 said...

I'll drink to #9. That's my excuse for tonight.

Why thank you and thanks for calling in.

empress bee
As did yours honey.

Ah the certificates - hope you've got them now.

I think so too! :)

"Where's your knee going without you?" - I never thought of it like that! :)

amazing gracie
I like honey on bread. Wine gives me a headache too, but only when I've drunk a couple of bottles!

Cheese Cake?????

I'm going to try that this afternoon, the weather is super and my lounger is out there waiting for me!

SNOW?????? Aarrrgh!!!

I'll join you. :)

Oh my I did, didn't I. How could I possibly forget that? Thanks for reminding me. :)

Tink said...

That's a wonderful list, it made me smile! Most things on your list apply to me too; I have no kids and I don't drink alcohol though. But I do have a WM myself! ;-)
Thanks for visiting my oracle TT!

Akelamalu said...

Hi tink,thanks for dropping by. The WM is enough!!!!
