A DOZEN OF LIFE’S SIMPLE PLEASURES – CREATIVE TUESDAYS

A DOZEN OF LIFE’S SIMPLE PLEASURES – CREATIVE TUESDAYS

For Michael’s Creative Tuesdays, I was to paint something that makes me happy.

First, I listed a dozen of life’s simple pleasures that makes me happy:

  • reading my trusty manual,
  • riding my bicycle,
  • falling asleep on the back of my hubby’s motorcycle,
  • cross-country skiing (I used to downhill and water ski),
  • playing the piano,
  • writing,
  • swimming,
  • chirping birds,
  • seeing friends,
  • drawing,
  • painting, and
  • fishing.

Second, I wrote about one of my happiest childhood memories.

“Tracy,” Dad said, tossing the tackle box into the boat. “Let’s go fishing.”

“Yahoo!” I kicked off my sandals, yanked on rubber boots, jumped into the car, and slammed the door.

With the boat trailer in tow, Dad steered the car toward the bait shop.

“Dad, how many minnows are we getting?”

“A bucket full, of course.”

I stared out the window and smirked. For the next few hours, we’ll cast our lines, devour Mom’s yummy egg sandwiches, listen for a Loons eerie echo, and reel in feisty Pike for dinner. Oh yah, just me and Dad.

Third, I ran out of time to paint a new piece, so here’s a fishing frog I painted that was published in a calendar for Zebra Publishing.

Dad, let's go fishing!

“Let’s Go Fishing” is also available as a greeting card for Father’s Day, and I’ll be offering a printable Father’s Day card (coming soon).

Note: I just found out that this week’s “happy” prompt deadline has been extended a week.

In any case, thanks Christine, for the wonderful prompt.

Blessings of Happiness,

Tracy

So far, so good! 🙂
