Sunday Seven – Episode 22

Last week’s Sunday Seven had you dreaming of screaming down the fast lane or cruising down the avenue in your ideal ride. This week’s is more in the “Simple Pleasures” category.

Here’s where I normally send a quick shout-out to the first person to play the previous edition, and here’s where things get dicey! There’s that pesky rule that to be first to play, you must either answer the questions here or provide the full link to the specific entry in which the answers appear on your own blog. And I think it’s the first time we’ve ever had what happened last week occur on a Sunday Seven meme.

Our beloved Barb was the first to leave a comment, but hers pointed to her excellent blog, “A Ticket to Ride,” though not to the specific entry. So the “first to play” honor would then move to the second commenter. Last week, that was Nate, a relatively new player of the Seven, who writes the blog “Nate Against the World.” But I get an error following his link that says there’s no such entry.

So that takes me to the third commenter, Carly, of “Ellipsis…Suddenly Carly,” was becomes “first to play.” It’s the second week in a row, so congratulations again, Carly!

On to the challenge!

List up to seven sounds that make you happy or relax you.

Either answer the question in a comment or answer it in your journal and include the link in a comment. (To be considered “first to play,” a link must be to the specific entry in which you answered the question.)

My answers:
1. A Thunderstorm
2. Coffee brewing on a chilly morning
3. The crackle of a fire in the fireplace
4. A Child’s laughter
5. Popcorn popping

7. The sigh of contentment that my dogs let out when they’re snuggled in bed.
