friday five: bliss in the moment

(this picture is actually using milk but times are tough. Shh. don't tell!)

At RevGals Kathryn writes: We lead privileged lives.

True, some are more privileged than others but the fact that we are communicating right now via technological devices puts us in the privileged category.

There are many perks in my life for which I give thanks and then there are some that make everything right in the world during the moment I am enjoying them. I'm wondering what a few of those things - five to be specific - are for you.

Under the circumstances (my laptop screen has died, rendering my computer, and everything stored on it, useless and unavailable to me!), my first bliss is using my own computer to 1) read blogs, 2) check in on facebook, 3) stay informed, 4) stay in touch with folks by other means 5) research various things for business and pleasure, 6) upload and play with photos, 7) write this blog 8) do my work...  What follows is in no particular order:

2) A la Kathryn, coffee first thing in the morning. In a mug. With half and half.

3) Being on vacation

4) Sitting on the porch at Melrose looking at the view (I'd include a picture, but they're all on my computer. Did you hear I can't access anything on my computer?)

5) Creating. In no particular order: photos, sewing, making cards, needlework, cooking, knitting, calligraphy (though it's been a while), scrapbooking.

PS -- I'm an introvert, so of course these are all about me!

All wonderful things (except I prefer smelling the coffee to actually drinking it!) Thanks for sharing! I hope your computer situation gets fixed very soon!

Ah yes, the technology that is no longer a perk, but a necessity! Good luck!

I like your mention of vacation. Yes, yes and yes.

Thanks for playing!
