“Pet” being the operative term, most of the time.
You hear so much these days about pet peeves. I’d rather list a few of my favorite things:
My dogs, with sunlight in their fur.
My cats, cuddling close to give me cat-Reiki when I’m under the weather.
The horses, running and kicking up their heels in the pasture.
Macaroni and tomatoes
Weight Watchers’ Key Lime Pie
Playing with polymer clay–especially making image transfers
Getting new art supplies via UPS
My Cricut machine–whiz bang, what a dandy tool!
Reading other peoples’ books
Studying the Civil War
Visiting ANY book store
Ditto any craft store
Going to the movies on cloudy afternoons
Mini series like “John Adams”
Peonies in bloom (not yet, but coming soon to a garden near you!)
Laughing until I cry
Hot baths with bubbles
Going back to London, after many years away
The Park Lane Hotel
The British Museum
The flower shops on every corner–color spilling everywhere you look
Choosing and sending post cards
Finding that special memento for that special someone
Time with my Sister Sally
I could go on. (And on.)
But I have a book to finish.
Oh, yeah. Finishing a book!
