a few things I love...

Week 14 of the Wednesday lists.
Yikes! We have six and half days left of school. Tomorrow is our Celebration of Learning and I still have a lot to do to be ready for it. It's a family night with a show, portfolios, and all that jazz; kind of an overview of the year. Lots of fun. Anyway, the list tonight is going to have to be quick and easy.



Just a few things I love...

watching Sloane sleep * Pandora.com * wind * my new camera - of course! * lip gloss * new pens * clarinet solos * the scent of lilacs * Braum's peanut buttercup ice cream * pedicures * tiny chandeliers * serving cold Cokes in an icy glass * flowers * good theater * mediocre theater * even bad theater * zebras * the ostrich skin wallet my Dad brought back for me from Kenya * Kid Rock's voice (too bad he doesn't sing better songs) * letters in the mail * turquoise scooters * starry nights * red lipstick * Eva Cassidy * over-sized rings * curling ribbon * the moon, oh yes, the moon * little wildflowers * old trees * decrepit, paint-peeling barns * the Corrs * red doors * curvy glass * donkeys - I really love donkeys * nose freckles * that libraries now have drive through service - how cool is that? * The Magic Kingdom * walking at the edge of the ocean * a good, long massage * Edith Head's costumes * putting stickers on my kids papers * the kshhhhhhh sound a Coke can makes when you open it * polka dots * dangling earrings * Daumier * the fact that my husband uses verisimilitude in a normal sentence * Bananagrams * convertibles * hot pink, turquoise blue, emerald green * bonfires and chili dogs * fireflies * the new Star Trek movie * fish and chips for lunch * presents * Netflix * Indian food * pedicures * this song * short dark red nails * stacks of books * lists

Oh, gosh, Relyn!!! What a list! I was just toodling through it and enjoying so many lovely images and then – ping! – I was on my own blog! You awesome person, you! Thank you!!! I did a special version of your print and it will go in the mail tomorrow. :) Oh, and I used to play clarinet. Not good enough to solo, but still.... Have a great Celebration of Learning! xo

Susan Tuttle said...

congratulations on your purchase of PSE!:) -- I think either class would work for you -- it just depends what you are interested in -- photomanipulation of single photos (which are classes I plan to give again), or the current class (see description on site). I hope that helps:)))

I love your list!

Char said...

Marilyn said...

Love your lists. I used one of your list ideas this week and linked back to you.

Oh, pedicures for sure! I so need one.

My husband dated one of the Corrs when he was in the Marines in California. Crazy, huh?

Oliag said...

Love This! Especially the nose freckles and libraries with drive throughs. Our town is finally getting it's first and I can't wait (especially since I'm a Librarian myself)!!

Happy weekend! :)

Tracy said...

I love that photo, for sure. There is something about trees against a deep blue sky that turns me on. (Not like that!)

Dawn said...

Love this list and you have at least two of my favorite things--the Kshhhhh sound the coke can makes and Braum's peanut butter cup ice cream! Oh and stacks of books of course!

Delena said...

I love your lists too. They always make me stop and think of what I love. I too love the sound of the pop can opening. I just got a pedicure yesterday and that made me love my feet again!

Jaime said...

I had peanut butter cup ice cream for the first time last summer (I must have been living under a rock). It was amazing!
Each time I read your lists, I can't help but notice, all day long, how many wonderful things there are in everyday life to take notice of.
And I am so happy that ice cream weather is on its way!!

Oldies, but Goodies
