My friend Kat recently listed some of her favorite things so of course I had to copy her. I started thinking about what my favorite things are. So here they are.
Of course family and friends, that goes without saying but for just things.
This room, our living room, makes me very happy especially when we have a fire and really good coffee.
The smell that touching tomato plants leaves on your hands. Gardening, The tomato plant is a picture of my garden at my mom's house this summer.
Sophie having friends in our neighborhood.
The beginning of a book by a favorite author.
Finding an episode of Law & Order with Lenny Briscow that I haven't seen.
Anything spooky or unexplained.
The fact that someone from Estonia looked at my blog.
People who are passionate about something.
Listening to David Sedaris on a book on C.D. on the long drive to and from my Mom's.
The beach in the fall
An interaction with a stranger that feels life changing, No smut please, I mean those moments you share with a stranger that feels very important. After my mother was diagnosed with cancer I was falling apart in the elevator at Walter Ried and a complete stranger wrapped her arms around me and told me it would be Ok. That seemed very brave and very kind to me.
The fact that chemotherapy exists.
Our old dog Lucy and our Chupacabra and possum mauler Lola.
