Share the Joy Thursday: Short List

What's on my JOY list today?

1. the smell of melted beeswax for encaustic work



2. the heft of a hardback book in my hands,
   especially one so well-written and engaging that
   I can't wait to turn the page.


3. seeing blue in the sky amongst the clouds




4. watching sunlight bounce off water --
in the pond behind my house
or

   

in the harbor in my quaint little town
-- or anywhere, for that matter


5.  knowing that I'm infected once again with the
    creative writing virus  after being in the doldrums
Yippee! 



What's on your JOY list?

To play along and share the joy:


1. do a post that tells and shows us what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post 
and paste it into the Mr. Linky box 
along with your name.

3. visit other players -- as many as possible -- 
and let their joy infect you.  
Leave them a comment about their post.
Let's start an epidemic of joy!

This gorgeous shot of Rainier looks much like Gig Harbor. I vividly remember seeing the mountain under sunny skies for the first time- on my way to climb it.

Your photo brought back all of the joy- and then some. Thanks for this.

Enjoy your sweet day, Beautiful Meri.
