Random Thursday. Things that brighten a yucky day...

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are doing fine. You might have noticed that it has been quiet around here lately. The reason for this is a family emergency we are dealing with right now. I am not sure when I will be back to regular blogging but I decided to do my usual Random Thursday post because the topic seems to be pretty fitting right now. Thanks to all of you who send me such sweet messages and asked if I was alright. It means a lot. 



So here are some of the things that usually cheer me up. It never hurts to try. 

1. My loved ones. 2. Animals especially my pets. 
3. A good book.
4. Chocolate.
5. So delicious coconut milk cookie dough ice cream. Just bought some. 
6. Almond milk.
7. Watching a good show/movie.
8. A blanket and a hot water bottle.
9. Shopping.
10. Tea.
11. Salt and vinegar chips.
12. Looking through magazines.
13. Doing something crafty.
14. Vegan aged white cheddar flavored popcorn.
15. Nature.
16. A long walk.
17. More books.
18. Listening to loud music.
19. Cooking and baking.
20. Exercising.

So now please let me know: what are the things that brighten a yucky day for you?
Have a good rest of the week!

  9. yes to all of them on the list except I have no pets, never tasted salt/vinegar chips, don't own any magazines, have not tasted vegan popcorn, nor can I cook or bake and #20 is not quite something I like doing. I might add drawing, watching the sky & drinking anything sweet, such as strawberry flavor milk, to the list.

    hope you have a wonderful weekend.
