things that make me happy on a friday 
  this art. ** the magnolias are blooming on the tree out front - makes me think of hot summer nights and moonlight and perhaps stealing kisses while walking through a country graveyard.  ** lunch with a good friend and dinner with a nephew.  ** going here tomorrow.  ** a random ipod playlist ( see listed below)  ** the scent of honeysuckle in the air.  ** silly presents for my sister.  **  runaway balloons causing a bit of whimsy as i watch them visit the capital.  ** the runners with the special olympic torch passing by.  ** pink zinnias blooming outside my front door. ** these tiny earrings **
