Things that are making me happy

Spooning sweet lychee syrup into my mouth straight from the tin. Eating the lychees, too. Roasted peanuts sprinkled on a tofu stir-fry. Whipped cream on a homemade hot chocolate. A glass of winter-cold tap water on first waking. Fresh minty toothpaste. Sniffing an unlit scented candle. Striking a match and watching the flame whip into action. Shaking my hands really fast like they’re made of elastic bands. Gloves and woolly hats. Long walks with women-friends. Writing about things that are making me happy.
