Okay - I realize I missed last week.
Last week, I subscribed to the concept that if you couldn't say sumping nice (or in my case, bitingly sarcastic) - say nothing at all ... sooooo, I said nothing.
This week, however I have my happy place in my sights and my intention is to scratch the hell outta that suckah.
I have decided to make a list of things I love. Yup ... dats it, and here goes (in no particular order):
Sunrise - not that I see it often (and this really only works if you stay up until) but there is most certainly magic in a sunrise ... you can almost taste it.
Renovating/home design - I dig it. It's something my hubby and I have been doing for the past 10 years together and I never really get tired of dreaming up new designs.
Drinking - yeah, I know ... d'uh. Really though ...my liver may disagree, but I love to drink. It's good.
Science - I really love science stuff .. you know, space and geology and the study of the ocean ... even biology ... I dig it.
Watching a movie on TV that you had no idea was going to be good - seriously, is there anything better? Okay, there are better things, but it's nice -you gotta admit.
Bare feet in warm (not hot) sand - oh man ... that is serious therapy right there.
Listening to the awesomest of awesome music while driving along a secondary, scenic highway with a super wicked stereo and no distractions... oh ... I wanna go do that right now.
Cooking when I don't have to - I really enjoy cooking. I think there must be some Italian in my blood somewhere, I just really hate cooking under duress. That bites. But when I can fiddle around with recipes and take my time ... the love flows.
(date is screwey on my camera)
A clothes line full of crisp, clean linen. Sounds odd perhaps, but it fills my heart with joy.
Painting - I realize two things: 1) this could fall under renos/design & 2) Painting is like work ... but it is so rewarding it deserved its own line and it makes such a massive difference to a room it is nutz!
My bloggy buds. Srsly ... I love you guys ... ooops - maybe no drinking while blogging :)
Technology - let's face it. We live in a world where you can have a baked potato in under 6 minutes. What more could you want from life?
Impromptu parties - hasn't happened to me in a long time, but I so love a good party that wasn't pre planned.
and finally for today ...
Christmas - oh man ... do I love Christmas. I married Tim "the tool man" Taylor/Clarke Griswold. You can likely see our house from space at Christmas time. We are a little on the daft side where this holiday is concerned - but I do love it.
Okay - so for today, that's sufficient.
It's my offering for this edition of NWW :)
