Dear Kelly from Little Paper Planes tagged me last week, and although I usually space on tag-backs, I liked the idea of this one so much that I saved it for some Friday fun!

Name five “unimportant” things that make me happy!:

1. The creamy top on an unopened can of peanut butter. It looks so sily and smooth! Eek!
2. Stark white sheets with lilac linen spray.
3. Pizza rolls!
4. Thunderstorms.
5. Wool socks.

Thanks, Kelly— and readers, consider yourself tagged!

    2. Walking right next to a textured wall while looking directly towards the front. (I like to call it Peripheral Pleasure)
    3. The sound of recently poured soda.
    4. The way that the bits of dust look when floating around in the air, against the light of a lamp.
    5. The light of passing cars that shines through half opened windows, in a dark room, at night.

  • In random order:
    – hearing a song that I know on the radio whether I’m in a car, in a store, or in a gym.
    – admiring the beauty in people’s face and/or body when I people-watch
    – gushes of warm damp winds coming indoors via a screen door at night
    – accidentally seeing a beefed-up muscle being flexed or on display on people’s body in the public.
    – accidentally grossing out people when I bend my fingers bend more than “normal”, when I’m listing things off from my fingers.
