Things I Love

Julie at the Diningroom Table

My favorite things, in no particular order.  Far from static, this list is ever-changing, capturing some simple things that make me happy:

Coffee in bed
First kisses
Babbling creeks
Crescent moons on clear, chilly nights
Crispy bacon
Purring kitties on my chest
The scent of freshly-cut grass
Twittering finches in the trees
The sun’s warmth on my back
Fresh rain on dusty asphalt
Spooning in the dawn hours
The sound of pencil on paper
Crackling fires in Autumn
A new haircut
Holding hands
Spaetzle, fried crisp in butter
Silly, post-sex conversations
Napping to the sound of the washing machine
The very last center bite of buttery, cinnamon-sugar toast
Watering the backyard, barefoot, on a warm summer evening
Wind chimes in a gentle breeze
Crunchy gravel underfoot
Tiny European villages
Red peep-toe pumps
1940’s style
Surprise packages in the mailbox
Cardamom and star anise
Deep bathtubs with ample hot water
Weathered things
B&W photos
Lindy hop
A new pedicure
Oak trees surrounded by dried grass
Digging in the dirt
Glasses on men
Wooden things
Red barns
gooey cheese
Baby goats
Ginkgo trees in Winter
Sun-warmed tomatoes, straight from the vine

  1. Wishes to steal your list *smiles* … though will have to leave the following off of mine because:

    1) I do not know how to make Dim-Sum
    2) I do not know what Adho Mukha Svanasana is. (Google time!)
    3) The Audit TT Roadster (I will replace it with my bike 🙂 )
    4) Ginko trees … I do not think I have ever seen one.

    (Note ~ As always, please feel free to delete this if you need. I know that this might be your special place to look for yourself … I just wanted to leave you a note on what I saw here.)


  2. Ha! You love 1940s style, and I love 1940s radio shows (and that era of 20th century Earth is where by pop-culture knowledge ends! )
    : )
