The rules are to list 10 things that make me happy, and then pass it on to 10 people.

Thank you Mel!

So here we go...what makes me happy.

#1. It makes me happy that I still have my Mom here on this earth. I love my mama!

#2. Arie's infectious laugh makes me happy (he is my six year old grandson).

#3. Heidi's gentleness and beauty makes me happy (she is my daughter)

#4. That Doug tolerates and supports my horse addiction makes me happy (he is my long suffering husband).

#5. Phebes beginning to act like a grown up horse makes me happy!

#6. Spoody Doo and Maggie Mae make me happy! (Boxer & Rat Terrier companions)

#7. The friends I've make in my endurance endeavor make me happy! Let's see I have all my blogger friends, my mentor, my riding companions.

#8. Having a job when so many don't right now makes me happy and grateful too.

#9. The fact that I'm NOT working for the next four days makes me freakin' ecstatic!!! (see, aren't I a complicated person with a lot of depth?) *grin*

10. I'm also happy that 2009 is coming to an end and I can look forward to trying 2010 (if I make there, GOD willing). who to nominate:

*Nicole from Adventures with Arabee (who is one of the most thankful and NICE people I know).

*Zach Rabow from Adventures and Travels of SS Sestina & Apache Bulero

* Michelle Detmer who is blog free but is welcome to list her happiness here!

* Mel from Boots & Saddles just so I can make her squirm and name ten more things!

*Elcee from Living in a Zoo.

* The Barefoot Horse Blog not sure who is blogging, but love the barefoot paradise they've worked out.

*~ C at Go Diego Go! Hope your boy is okay after the choke episode :(

*Leanna from Between Golden Ears as she exudes happiness from her photos.

*Jonna from Barbs ETC. Love the new blog layout by the way.

* Last but not at all least Funder from It seemed like a good idea at the time... tag you're it. :)


  1. You're a nurse who's not working for the next four days?! You ARE lucky! Thanks for thinking of me, and now I really have to update my blog!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Funder,

    I'm not working as a CNA. Still hold a license but my job is a scheduler for a large mental health agency. They close up shop over the holidays :)


  3. Just getting caught up on my blog reading - thanks for the nomination!

    Things that make me happy? Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens... (can you tell The Sound of Music was on TV not too long ago!)

    Hope you have a great start to the new year - I'm thinking I might put my first ride back on Arabee (maybe today!) Can't wait!!
