some simple things that make me happy

Friday, 27 June 2008
  1. Putting together a homemade spaghetti sauce with lots of veggies and spices.
  2. Throwing my Outback in low gear and powering up a hill (particularly if said hill leads to Williamstown).
  3. The sound of a squash ball hitting the wall.
  4. Watching a lathe on automatic feed turn down material.
  5. Turning on a radio and instantly hearing a song I’ve been thinking about but haven’t listened to in a long time.
  6. Writing useful functions that work properly and integrating them into my codes.
  7. Watching a charcoal drawing take shape.
