Intriguing list and peaceful photo ...

Rita said...

Wow, what a photo! and a fantastic list! Love ya!

Roban said...

I would be a few of those things... the bookcase, for one... and the pen. But I would be a gathering-gray shade of blue and a kiwi or maybe a pear, and a Range Rover looking for adventure. A verb? I love that yours is laugh, but sadly mine would probably have to be procrastinate.

I enjoyed reading YOUR list....

Roban said...

... is that another one of your photos? It's beautiful by the way.

lagirl/Sweet Tea said...

Your list reads almost like a poem. Good job!
If I were a shoe I would be a Flip Flop, course right now my toes would be cold if that were the case. *smile

Gigi said...

Enchanted April, cowboy boots, and pomegranates . . .
a few of my favorite things. When I'm feeling down, that movie is on my short list of ones to watch, preferably while wearing cowboy boots and drinking a glass of sparkling water and pomegranate juice.

Ok, Girlfriend, I gotta give you props for this one; This was very very cool! A great list idea : )

And gotta say, kindred spirits are we! "The Enchanted April", "84 Charing Cross Road" (which I'm currently reading! Just set it down to log on for awhile!), "Firefly" LOVE this series and I think you and I are the only ones who know about it!! Love River!! And Mal, of course, Zoe, ok the whole lot of them!!!

Good Stuff, Relyn : ) Thanks for a fun read : )

Dandy said...

I think I might struggle with that one. I'd have to decide if it would be what I am or what I want to be.

Actually, I think I'll do that as an exercise. I'll fill it out as what I would like it to be and then I'll take the little steps that will take me towards it.

I've decided that instead of inhibiting myself I need to do what makes me really happy. Instead of thinking that I wish I could, I just will.

This is like therapy. How much do you charge for this session?

Georgianna said...

Oh, my, I have to try this. What a wonderful portrait it paints of you!! I so love the photo of that house and hope it is yours someday VERY SOON!

But I most have to say that I KNEW we were connected by something important – Firefly, the only tv show in history worth watching.

Shiny. :)


pam q said...

Loved your list!

Had to go listen to Say Hey---hadn't heard it in a little while..... Great song and video!

Thanks for reminding me!

Derrick said...

Hi Relyn,

This list isn't so easy when one begins to think about it! I like that you've chosen some very simple things in the mix.

ELK said...

SE'LAH... said...

Tracy said...

This is sooo you, Relyn! :o) And I can very much relate... a movie, Enchanted April; a book, 84 Charring Cross Road;
a piece of furniture, bookcase; a scent, old roses; an emotion, delight...pure delight! ((HUGS))

Marilyn said...

I would also be Enchanted April. We could go there together. What a beautiful list. I will do this list soon. It does cause you to stop and think.

Oliag said...

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

What a great list. I'm afraid mine wouldn't have the same positive ring to it. The only thing is...if you smelled like old roses, I don't think I could be in the same room with you! I'd get a headache:)

A wonderful list! I've always wanted to read 84 Charing Cross Road AND own a pair of cowboy boots ;)

Relyn said...

Sue, Old roses is a term that refers to older varieties such as centerfolia and damask. They are usually heavily scented.

Heart2Heart said...


I'm going to have to borrow this beautiful concept of this list! What a great way to capture the essence of what we are feeling that day.

Loving the picture, do you know where it is?

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Relyn said...


I took it, so thank you. The house is in Clever, Missouri which is a very rural community outside of Springfield, Missouri.

suzyQ said...

great post! but I have to say the photo is my favorite part. Wow, it just makes me want to go right on in and sit by the fire.


Angie Muresan said...

Love the list, Relyn. Thanks for sharing!

Patti said...

I love your Someday looks very similar to what mine would look like- maybe you will be in my neighborhood! Love the list- I may play along too...

Anita said...

That is a beautiful list. Even though I don't know you personally, this list gives me a great description. I, too, love 84 Charring Cross Road, a bookcase, a pen, and Thursday is my favorite day of the week.
I enjoy reading your lists.

Jeanie said...

I love this list! I'm holding onto this one to do sometime! (verification: miste -- thinking of my blog friends makes me feel all miste inside!)

Sometimes Sophia said...

Delightful reading. I may try the list myself...

Jaime said...

Relyn, you have got me absolutely childishly giddy with creative energy this morning...I am so going to do this list on my next blog post.
Thank you Love!
