I love a lot of things. And originally, this was going to be a post entitled “Ten Things I Hate About Me”. Because today, I was into a sort of self-loathing thing. I think it was a combination of not getting enough sleep, having to get up super early and do the weekly blood test thing with my husband (we arrive at the ungodly hour of 6:30 am) and lots of other factors. But the final straw was when the dentist’s office called me at work this morning and asked whether or not my husband was coming in for his appointment. I had totally forgotten. I know, I know. It’s not that big of a deal, but if he can’t trust me to remember a simple dentist appointment, then he can’t trust me for the big things. And I am the appointment-maker of all things, big and little around here.
But rather than self-loathe, I decided to try to find things that make me happy. And in my world, this isn’t too difficult a job. So in no order whatsoever, here are ten things that I love that make me happy.
I love these two church steeples. They’re on Main Street in the town that I drive through to get home. I live outside of this town, on the hill, and I find myself making it a point to drive down this street daily. There are other ways home, but I like this one best. (photo taken with the old Sony Cybershot I keep in my purse for emergencies).
I love macaroni and cheese. And Pioneer Woman has an awesome recipe for it today.
I also love chocolate and peanut butter. And there’s a fantastic brownie recipe on Dyln's site today.
I love George but you already knew that. Oh, and my husband too. And my kids. And all that happy horseshit. (One of my father’s favorite expressions).
I love Photoshop (even though I have very limited knowledge of it).
I love Spring. I love seeing all the changes, and the beautiful colors and hearing the birds and feeling the warmth of the sun.
I love grapefruits. Especially when mixed with this. And I thank God and all the angels and saints that I don’t have a problem with that.
I love the seaside. One of many places I grew up was in Margate, NJ about two blocks from the beach. I have very fond memories of our home in Marvin Gardens.
I love hair products. My absolute favorite is Ojon’s Tawaka, but it’s ridiculously expensive and we’re on a budget right now. It smells heavenly, though, and what it does for your hair . . . it is just luscious.
I love watching Rescue Me. And it’s on tonight. I had to take a small nap after work today just so that I could stay awake.
So there are Ten Things I Love. I love a lot more than that, but I’m sticking with the ten for today.
So what are some things that you love?
Thanks to all who stop by here. You make my day sometimes with the comments you leave. And I welcome all the new faces and followers. You rock.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
