About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

What Fills You Up?

   You know, things that energize you and make you happy inside?  Reading a good book or blogging gives me the "me" time that I need.  You can be energized by being around people or being by yourself.  You are usually one type of person or the other.  Of course, I love spending time with my family, but I really need time by myself, especially since this is a rare occurrence.  Here are some of my other "me fillers":

1- Shopping a great sale or finding a wonderful "treasure"
2- Going to Starbucks  The music, the atmosphere and, of course, the refreshments are such a treat!
3- Going to the movies- especially if you have the theater all to yourself!  Big Bonus!
4- Crafting and creating- What is it about buttons, glitter and beads that puts a smile on my face?:)
5- Photography-  Taking a great picture and knowing that it will make a memory for me (or others) is an amazing feeling.
6- Spending time with animals- They give so much and ask for nothing.
7- Getting a package in the mail- JOY!

   What are some things that "fill" you up?  I challenge you to post some of them.  I look forward to reading your ideas- they may become some of my new favorites!

This is a great list! Sounds like such simple pleasures but often they're the ones that mean the most.

Many sweet blessings!

Many of my fillers you listed~♥

I do like taking long hikes.

Watching a movie in my room with just the hubby and I holding hands~♥

Long drives.

Sewing-It relaxes me.

One more thing: Sitting in the morning sunshine for 15 minutes while having a cup of coffee all by myself~♥

I think your fillers are similar to my own. I would have to add looking at magazines and decorating to the list. I may post a similar post soon.
So glad you are back, sister!!
