Tag Archives: Lists

And the winner is…

I love lists.  If I get behind on any random project and am feeling stressed out I know the cure.  It’s a bathtub and a notepad.    Hot water and a long list is the perfect way to get a plan and then get some sleep.   I also love lists of things I love.   If you don’t like lists, you probably want to skip this post.   But if you are like me at all, here are a few of my favorite things…

I love sounds. I love music too but I’m not actually talking about music.  I love random sounds.   I love the sound gravel makes when you walk on it.   I love the sound my dog makes when she jumps on the bed.   I love the sound that the river outside makes when it is swollen with spring rain.   Its a mix of rushing water and boulders smacking into each other.   I love how it sounds when my daughter sneezes.    I like the sound of espresso steam.

I love tastes: Cinnamon Rolls on Christmas morning.  Homemade Spaghetti Sauce.   Warm raspberries straight off the bush. Mint and lime.

I love books: A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemmingway.  Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom.  The Great Divorce by CS Lewis.

I love movies: Sabrina, Joy Luck Club  (I liked the book too), While You Were Sleeping (I can quote the whole thing.  Pitiful, I know), Ocean’s Eleven, and any movie whatsoever about an underdog who wins.

I love a good non-profit organization: Shared Hope, Open House, Voice of the Martyrs, Ndengera Foundation

I love rain.  I love wood fires.  I love hard wood floors. I love huge trees. I love giant cranes.   I love my husband.  I love my daughter.  I love my life.

What do you love??
