The grasscutter was cutting grass near my place earlier today and I had a whiff of freshly cut grass. I don’t know what it is about the scent of freshly cut grass that makes me happy but it’s always a pick-me-up for me …. mmmm…. 🙂
I have other mmmm moments…
🙂 I love the smell of the earth after the rain. I love the smell of the sea before a storm. I love the smell of freshly-baked bread and the aroma of freshly-brewed coffee. I love the smell of babies all talcum-powdered, after a bath.
🙂 I love the sound of the ebb and flow of the waves lapping to shore. I love to hear the quiet of the night. I love to hear the gurgle of kids’ laughter and listen to kids talk at play. I love long drives and self-drive vacations with my favourite music in the air.
🙂 I love the sight of endless, green, rolling plains. I love panoramic views of rolling hills and mountains, behind a calm, quiet lake. I love the bright stars twinkling in the dark, night sky. I love to see kids share what they have whether from little or plenty.
🙂 I love a cup of hot chocolate when it rains as I sit and watch the world go by. I love picnics by the lake in the cool of spring and heavy, balminess of fruit-laden autumn. I love high tea at noon and brunch for lunch. I love the sensation of chocolate melting in my mouth and the taste of cheese and crackers with ruby red wine washing down my palate.
🙂 I love the exhilaration of the wind rushing through my hair cruising along coastal drives. I love the water sprays with the sun on my skin and blustering wind blowing across high seas. I love the feel of fresh, cool air nipping on my skin and big, bear hugs that warms the heart. I love unadulterated chats among good friends and the unguarded acceptance of family moments.
I love… I love… I love… 🙂 I love my pick-me-up moments.
