going to three museums in a row
roller skating around the block
See what I mean? A lot of the things on the list have to do with food, really good, home cookin', so beware if you read it while hungry!! It reminds you of all the tiny, great things in the world! Keep it by your bedside table and drift off to sleep with corn muffins, lazy sunday afternoons, and kittens floating in your head!
There is no story or plot, instead lists things to be happy about.
one thing i wanted to see was an explanation about why these things make us happy but it didnt have that
i have the smaller old version of the book, maybe in other versions in does
in general is a great leisure book. i'd recommend this to people who have a lot of free time,
enjoy the small things, and are not in it for a plot
