#10HappyThings

There’s this new tag doing the rounds now, which is #100HappyDays, where people post a picture a day depicting their most happy moment for 100 days !

I wanted to do that tag…so badly, but couldn’t, due to various reasons. So, I made this post about the 10 happy things that are always doing the rounds around my home :D

It may appear as small things or really petty ones, but it did bring a smile on our face, made us more happy than before – such small treasures of happiness are what that makes this world go round and round. The contentment and joy of those small things which makes us tremendously happy is something to experience and live through.

A long drive always rejuvenates the soul, esp for me :D

This quilt was hand-stitched by my elder one for her elder cousin-sister as her wedding gift. The thought of such a gift to her sister is so touching and made me smile more :D

To quote Nigella – “I am the happiest, when I am in the kitchen” :D
Happiness is cooking for the family :D

#HappyThing8

Happiness is cake baking in the oven…that intoxicating baking smell, the anticipation that the cake should come out well is still the same even after many years of baking  :)

Cloud watching should feature in the list of happy things. We three girls, always love to sit in our balcony, gaze at the sky, laugh / amaze at cloud patterns. This collage is a collection of recently clicked sky-watch pictures.
