this weeks corner view is sweets. also i have been meaning to do the happiness 101 post since sweet courtney from scattering lupines tagged me a little while back. and since sweets make me happy, and happiness is sweet, well, then let's do a combo.
:: sweets. cookies and chocolate are my favorites. and i like the taste of seasons. the cinnamon and spicy winter cakes, the special christmas cookies and fruity desserts of summer. after 8 years in israel i have also come to love the sweets that come with the jewish holidays. we just had tubi shwat, where it is all about dried fruits. in december it was suvganiot for hanukkah. and with purim coming up, these favorites of mine just re-entered my life: osnei hamman (hamman's ears). he was an evil king, and sometime soon i will tell you why we are eating his ears at purim, but i'll have to be another day.
and the 9 other things that make me happy:
:: yoga (after a long break i made my way back)
:: a stormy sea
:: wild flowers
:: a beautiful sunset
:: good food. improvised at home or out with friends
:: to create (and the vacuum in time it brings)
:: garlands (on a rainy day)
:: a good nights sleep (and waking quietly watching the morning sun)
i left out the obvious: D, the kids, my family in denmark, my friends, my home, my blog (mainly because of YOU :). and of course art, music, traveling . and on and on and on it goes. gosh! so many things to be happy about in this world (i wonder why i still get the blues sometimes!?)
for more sweets, jane's got the treats. wishing you a sweet and happy day.
(and if you wish to share your happiness, please join in on the happiness 101. making lists is always good, making lists of happy things is even better)
