What makes you happy?

At 2:28 AM on Tuesday, a single cicada began creating a raucous symphony, which went on for a full 7 minutes. It woke my husband, but I wasn’t sleeping anyhow — it was 72 degrees (22C) with the  dew-point at 71°F — weather-wise, not my ideal sleeping temperature. A couple of rain showers came through here last night (well, not HERE on the blog 😉 )  and I’ve got some very happy flowers and plants this morning.

    Your Happy Word is “Bliss”

    You are happy because you don’t need a lot to be content. You experience happiness in the best and worst of times. You see the divine in everything. You believe that every moment, person, and creature is unique and special.

    You are an oasis of calm in this chaotic world. You never lose your head. You can feel totally elated and exuberant from the smallest pleasures. You don’t hold back when it comes to ecstasy.
