Yeah, I did this once before. But then I limited me (and you) to ten items, which made us all think that we needed to think of ten really significant/most important things. And yet, Meg Fowler has been doing this Friday Love List thing and she lists as many things as she wants, which leads to including littler things, which makes her lists far more interesting.
In fact, forget that I included those links because her terribly interesting lists are going to make mine look mundane. Since you won't be going over there, I'll explain that it works this way: I tell you some stuff that I love and then you write a similar post on your own blog and put the link in my comments or you just go ahead and leave a comment for us with a bunch of stuff that you love. Maybe we love it too. Or maybe we would love it but we don't even know about it yet. You'd be doing us a service.
So here we go, some things I love, in no particular order:
When a kid I'm teaching really gets something
Coming home and changing into my crazy soft yoga pants, which yes, have a hole in the leg, but it's ok since I never wear them out of the house
Sunny and 75
Throw-your-head back, silent shaking laughter. Or the even rarer (for me) right-out-loud laugh.
Big goofy puppy smiles
Sheets on skin
Margaritas. Boy howdy, do I love a good margarita.
And with it, the return of Brett Favre, Kirk Herbstreit, and Howie Long to my television.
The smell of basil
Long, (almost scaldingly) hot showers
The lovely, lovely woodwork in my new apartment
All of the lots of different kinds of flowers down at the farmers market
Yoplait Whips orange creme flavor. It tastes sort of...fizzy.
Maps. They're mesmerizing, aren't they? Maybe it's my wanderlust, maybe it's my total lack of innate sense of direction, but I could stare at maps for hours.
New book smell
Good, soft, barefoot-quality grass to walk around and sit in
Digital cable - God help me, I'm not sure I can ever go back.
I could go on and on, but tomorrow is not a sleep-in day as I've got to get my car in to the shop since this was the first appointment I could get after that whole AC not working thing started. Let's all think inexpensive thoughts.
And comment! LET'S ALL COMMENT.
