I've been tagged

I've been tagged by Housewife.

What are five things that give you physical pleasure?
1. A really hot bath
2. Clean sheets on the bed
3. Ice water when I'm really thirsty
4. That wonderful radiant heat from a fire on a cold night
5. Snuggling with all my kids in the morning in bed

What are five things that make you immediately angry?
1. People who belittle others
2. People with vicious dogs (there's more to this one)
3. People who defend their own incompetence
4. People who habitually lie
5. People who have their own personal agenda and don't care what they have to do to see it come to fruition.

What are five things that make you automatically happy?
1. Smell of old-fashioned roses, lilacs, orange blossoms, paperwhites and gardenias.
2. Real hugs from my kids
3. Reading something that's really well-written
4. Walking on the beach
5. Being completely absorbed by art in the studio

What are five things that make you automatically sad?
1. Lonely people
2. When I snap at my kids or hubby
3. Kids hurting other kids' feelings
4. Seeing someone who's given up
5. Hopelessness

I'm tagging Tammy, Kelly, Katie, Rosie and Joel.

What are five things that give you pleasure, make you happy, angry, and sad?

I enjoyed reading this post, thanks. Agreed with quite a few, like: clean sheets, iced water, hugs, the smell of those flowers and being sad when I snap at my family.
