Inspired by the "10 good things" posts that soaring_phoenix, among others, has been doing, I began making lists that I started out intending to be lists of 10 good things, but they wound up being lists of an indeterminate number of things, most of them good, but some not, and some of them including thoughts/observations that go outside the "list" format. I've been doing it on and off for a couple of weeks and I figured I'd post all the backdated ones at once.

a morning walk, coffee with an espresso shot, making sesame noodle salad with snow peas, the scent of the OH's lamb stew, driving around the back streets of the industrial part of town and wondering what "plating" and "spinning metal" companies do, the prospect of new window coverings, crochet, missing Selkie while watching a sad Emergency Vets show, The Sweet Glam Forum

stretching, Trading Spaces, glass lit from below, crochet, the OH's dwarf-star pancakes (very dense and chewy), the OH's cucumber and balsamic vinaigrette salad, nosing around in homes for sale, a beautiful quirky and not at all affordable home with a completely enclosed courtyard that a cat would love, a backyard with a pool, a backyard on a forested hillside, a 3-level backyard with a hot top on the top level deck (I wanted to live in the backyards of all these homes, although most of the homes themselves were kinda small w/ cut-up rooms and not enough light (and hideous kitchens), Perdido Street Station, an afternoon nap

cream cheese on toast, craft NRE, tasty coffee, comic-book movies making excessive use of morphing software (aka Daredevil), Martina (no-nonsense dog behavior expert and entertaining lecturer), getting a cat to come down from her shelf for pets, saying goodbye to a dying cat, getting nipped by a feisty kitten healing from an injury, tod mun, Forever War by Joe Haldeman

flowering plum treelet in our backyard, Public Glass, lampworking, getting better with dots and stringers, craftgrrl, a quiet evening

melty glass, beads, dots, stringer, filigrina, hot torches, glass penguins, janice peacock's beads, a burrito, e6000 glue

a working cpap machine, purple flowering bushes, a leggy 5 month old puppy named Katie, a vocal 12 year old Maine Coon cat, a really good cheap lunch burger within walking distance, Eric Clapton, coffee date w/ kyubi, an afternoon nap, Perdido Street Station by China Miéville, Diet Coke

Mo the tuxedo cat and host of Babbling Brook Inn, learning that Dalmations were originally bred to run beside carriages, Duarte's Tavern and Restaurant in Pescadero, cream of green chili soup, apricot pie, artichoke bread, goat cheese spread made in Pescadero, Swordsman 2 the movie, crochet, being happy to come home after an anniversary trip
