A Tag: Small Joys.

Small Joys-

Yamini's tag was very tempting and so I picked it up shamelessly! :D

- coming to work on time (read, coming early). I love to start my work-day early.
- Finding a parking spot very close to the entrance.
- Beating an almost red traffic light.
- finding a few coins in the wallet for the vending machine, when I am really hungry (or craving something)
- watching re-runs of Harry Potter and LOTR. Especially with like minded (HP/LOTR fans) people.
- Cooking together with friends.
- Buying a couch after ages and officially turning into a couch potato!
- Plonking on the couch with a book.
- Preparing my mind to go home and cook, and then later finding out its hubby's cooking turn instead!! (we cook alternate days in turns, if you must know ;))
- Sharing PJs (silly jokes) with mom.
- Me and mom pulling my sister's leg. She is such an easy target.
- Transferring photos from the SD card to laptop, viewing them and actually liking some of the shots.
- Spending time later editing and playing around with the shots. Oh! what fun :)
- Completing a hike I thought was beyond my reach.
- Girls' time out.
- gtalk chats.
- Finding out that a dear dear friend might visit the US, and I might even get to meet him!
- reading favorite blogs.
- a good session of yoga.
- hitting the bed after a long day.
- Watching Colin Firth movies and getting goosebumps. (yea, I act stupidly when I see his movies)
- sneaking impromptu Starbucks visits with hubby during the week.
- Portrait/people photography.
- listening to old voicemails left by near and dear ones. (sounds crazy, but I do this when I am craving to hear mom's voice or missing a friend)
- Exploring a new city alone.
- Selective ignoring. I am getting so good at not letting some people affect me. :D
- trying to re-create mom-cooked-food-taste, and getting close enough. :)
- cheap thrills.
- Taking up this tag and realising that it pays to see the brighter side of things.

I cannot believe I missed "Finding a parking spot very close to the entrance.". That is so at the very top of my list. Specially now when I am getting so heavy with each passing day.
Also I second finding enough coins for vending machine. ;)

Even I agree, writing this post made me realize it is so easy to be happy and so it has made me even happier today.. :)

Yay! Me likes! :)
and as predicted (by the great me) photography features in the list (which was pretty obvious after knowing you through blog and fb :D). This is a small joy too, you know ;)

Actually I listed quite a few of mine Here! But one of the most important would be to the ability actually find most happiness out of the small joys! (Heavy, right?! I know! :P)
