Simple Life Pleasures

I read about this somewhere (I just cant remember where :-S)… and tried to think of what gives my life pleasure and doesn’t cost much… or nothing at all?

The rules –

The cost of your pleasure must be under KD5 (under $20).

Think of five. If you find more than five, you can list those too as bonuses, if you want.

Here are mine:

  1. My dad humming tunes! I know he’s happy and it makes me happy.
  2. When my mom gives me a no reason hug! Although I am not that kind of -no reason hugs- person, it just gives me butterflies… specially when I can feel and hear her heart beat!
  3. When I find money notes inย a jacket that I have not worn since last winter.
  4. The appreciation look on someone’s face when I do something for them, which includes cooking.
  5. Seeing my sisters happy and smiling… it leaves me at peaceย ๐Ÿ™‚

Bonus: The smell of fresh baked bread out of the oven…. Or coffee!! Good aromatic coffee hmmmmm. Ice cream and froyo melting in my mouth! Oh yummm!!!! Or when I try some sort of any dish and the taste exceeds my expecations!

I like the sound of waves… heartbeats! Ahhh it makes me happy!

When I look around just to find myself surrounded by family and/or friends! And the last one…. is when I goof around with my nephews;ย to the point where Iย forget that I am in public!
