Ten things Tuesday and some music

Well, I just remembered the "Ten Things Tuesday" that my cousin Rebecca was doing every Tuesday for a while, so I thought I'd do one. (Now you have a blog post for today, Rebecca...*hint, hint*) ;)

Ten things that make me smile. I had a hard time coming up with just ten! Maybe I'll do another ten next week...

1. A crisp fall day
2. A good book
3. Dancing
4. Music
5. Completely unexpected presents
6. Going to Starbucks on a cold day
7. Jane Austen movies...and books
8. Happy babies
9. A letter or email from a friend
10. A finished project

And now, music...

Beaker from the Muppets "sings" Coldplay's song "Yellow":

Also, so that Mom can actually hear this song: Viva la vida by Coldplay...note: Coldplay do not sound anywhere near as good live, and the lead singer Chris Martin never holds still so it's very annoying to watch on TV. :p

If I had to make a list of ten things that made me smile I think it would be very, very close to what you've picked.

Oh cool...you remembered the usual procedure even though I didn't spell out that you could post your list in the comments! :D

That link didn't work. Oh well.

I like Amanda's #10 too :)

Works for me...to copy and paste anyway...

Those are happy things that you listed, I love them all too! Ten things for me would be 1) My military brother coming home from Iraq today!!! 2) Somebody else smiling/laughing 3) All our family gathered around the dinner table 4) Being with friends 5) Dancing 6) A blustery fall day with lots of sunshine and blue sky 6) My favorite critters 7) Walking in the dark when the moon is out 8) Riding in a pickup truck with family or friends, or both, windows down, singing up a storm 9) Snow 10) The beach

Your right, it is hard coming up with just ten! :) And I guess these are illigitimate since it's no longer Tuesday... :)
