Six things that make me happy

I was tagged by Pinkerbell of "Ripples in a Small Pond." Here are the instructions:

"If you are tagged write a post on your own blog about this saying six (un)important things which make you happy. Then you need to link to the person who tagged you and tag six bloggers people of your own. Then let them know that you've tagged them, perhaps by leaving a comment on their blog somewhere or by email. Simple. If you don't want to post on your own site, or don't have time, then just add a comment o
n to mine here. I won't mind if you don't link back to me, it's just a bit of fun, so don't worry about it if you don't carry it on."

Tag – you’re it!!!...

#1 Northern Arizona. We have a cabin up in Concho, Arizona: It's solar and wind powered and totally green. It's where we go to beat the Phoenix heat.

#2 Facebook: I am able to keep track of four generations of relatives.

#3 Camera: When I'm stressed out taking pictures usually calms me down. I was feeling a lot of angst this weekend so I went to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix and took a bunch of pictures and entered a photo contest. Dale Chihuly was exhibiting his hand-blown glass art in natural surroundings. It was the perfect photo op. Look really closely at the glass pillar on the far left about half way down - do you see the face of a Scottish Terrier?

#4 Playlist: My favorite song is "Feel" by Robbie Williams.
#5 Shakespeare: Particularly Shakespearean sonnets. I have memorized Shakespeare just in case I am ever stuck on a desert island and don't have anything to read or listen to. This is true.

Birds: Here is a mini-movie I made about birds.

Please feel free to take this meme as your own, even if you are not tagged, and pass it along! I would love to know what makes all of you happy. This inquiring mind wants to know.

Hey, I saw the coolest thing today. We were at a nearby lake and there was a seagull flying around. Suddenly the thing hovered and then plunged from about twenty feet! Right under water! I've been around seagulls forever and never saw it happen before. It got the fish. So cool. Weird though, but cool.

Your cabin looks and sounds amazing! A place to revitalize. I envy you.

Sorry to hear you have a touch of the 'angst' this weekend!
Loved the glass work, aren't some people so clever?
Hope the weekend improves for you. Oh, I have done my tag on the 6 things that make me happy.
Keep them Pouty Lips smiling!
Love Granny

Woman in a Window: I want to know if that seagull swallowed its fish whole? The thing is the cabin, while cooler than Phoenix, is lots of back-breaking labor. We have to haul water from the shared well and maintain the road in ourselves. Last spring the entire road was washed out and we had to hoof it for six months while we were fixing it. It's not nearly as glam as one would think - we use a compost toilet for Chrissakes. tee-hee, and we have to boil water and fill up the water tank to take a shower. Get the picture?

Granny, I am sure the drama has passed and I can enjoy my last day off tomorrow before returning to work. Thanks for doing the meme. BTW, why is it called a meme...Is it because it's about me, me, me?
