My bliss

Apparently I once entered a contest naming three things I considered bliss. 
At least I found the scrap of paper and apparently did not win any prize for my thoughts. 
But I think I would name the same three again:
1. Abandoning the main route, meander along country roads, rolling down windows and breathing deeply fresh air. Appreciating God's creation and man's labor showing itself in lush green crops 
and bales of neatly stacked hay. Pass picturesque farmhouses and pristine hamlet churches, 
later returning to the main highway, wondrously refreshed.
2. Sharing a cup of tea with a friend.
3. Getting to stay home on a rainy day.

Would any of these be on your list?


  1. Yes, all of them! In fact, in the last week I've done all of them.

  2. Yes, including a good meal on the road.

  3. Oh yes, Dotsie. We try to do of them frequently. Lovely photos.

  4. Podso,
    I adore time spent with a friend over a cup 'o tea!
    Recently, my BFF from High School spent the night while en route to her childhood home.
    She doesn't drink any caffeinated beverages, but we enjoyed tall glasses of ice water just the same!
    Lovely photos!

  5. Those are good ones! I like taking new roads too, finding new ways to places I go regularly.

  6. You got me to a T!!!


  7. Sounds pretty darn good to me. :)

  8. Oh my Dotsie...I really do think we must be long lost sisters. Love them all!

  9. Our favorite road trips have been slow drives on 2 lane highways with no plans.

    I'm not a tea drinker, or coffee, but I would love to join you for a cup of tea.

    I love rainy days that keep me inside where I can putter around the house and finish up projects that were neglected on sunny days.

  10. All of them, I think!

  11. Oh yes, all of them, and I put number 2 into practice as often as possible!

  12. From the comments, it sounds like we could start a Bliss Club. And the tea must be in a pretty cup or mug. I have a china mug that you once gave my mug. I enjoy drinking tea from it, and I think of you and her when I do. Thank you for the mini-bliss-breaks you give every time you post.

    1. Oops. Autocorrect got me again! *you once gave my mother.*

  13. This comment has been removed by the author.

  14. Ah.. these would all offer wonderful bliss!

  15. All three are wonderful bliss.


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
