These things are good:Ice cream and cake, A ride on a Harley, Seeing monkeys
on a tree, The rain on my tongue, And the sun shining on my face.
These things are a drag:Dust on my hair, Holes in my shoes, No money in my pocket, And the sun shining on my face
i'm sitting here on saturday night; the hubs is snoozing in his recliner; the kids are in the den watching a movie and actually not fighting for once today; i have a dog and a cat on the sofa beside me and i'm watching under the tuscan sun.
it's been a bad week, but really, i shouldn't complain. i have a job, for now, and i have insurance to cover the doc appt and meds for my sinus infection. i went to the grocery store today and bought food for my family. i know things could be much, much worse.
and so, my random list of good things
flannel pajama bottoms, so soft, warm and buttery and no bra
old movies, especially starring katherine hepburn
dogs or cats snuggling on your lap
snuggling of any kind really
hot tea or, better yet, coffee (w/ cream please)
discovering that your son will eat salad if you buy the iceberg lettuce in a bag kind (yuck)
getting lost in a good book
the sound and smell of the ocean; rhythmic, crashing waves are calming, yet frightening in their power; i feel whole but insignificant
the smell of snow (though we haven't really smelled it this year)
bread and butter
peanut butter and chocolate
long hot showers
strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries
sexy movie scenes that leave the sex to your imagination
creating something, anything
trees--in spring, summer, fall and winter
