The premise behind Things I Love Thursday posts is just to list off things you love, and talk about them (or not.) I had written a lot more, but after a computer shut down and a missing autosave, I lost it all (I don’t love when that happens).
I love Lady Grey tea. I love it even more in my DEFCON Mug at 8am. I love big 2 cup mugs, usually black, smooth, and available at museum/gallery gift shops everywhere (except it seems, in Canada).
I love eating apples straight off the tree.
I love and hate that my cat wants to “help” me in the kitchen while I’m baking/cooking/preparing. Then after I shoo her away for the fourth or fifth time, she’ll sit on the windowsill and stare at me. Accusingly. (You can also see another thing I love in this picture – the view from outside the kitchen window. That tree is so amazingly vibrant, that it makes me smile every morning.
I love reading the newspaper on paper, but reading all other books on an e-reader.
I love the slow-cooker. Because without it, I probably wouldn’t be eating Peanut Almond Kale Stew at 10am.
And I especially love my little Toronto family. – J’s sister gave him a picture frame for his birthday a few months ago, but she drew a little post it note picture on it… we thought it was too cute to replace. The ducks on the top are from a Nerd Night Toronto grab bag from last month. Emmiecat should be in there, but I don’t have any cat figurines (Sounds like a job for the Teal Cat Project.)
Other stuff: notebooks. the smell of fresh coffee. world of warcraft – my druid tauren is pretty adorable. Fancy over the sink cutting boards with colanders attached. My kitchen. My collection of cookbooks. The weather. Bixi-ing around the city whenever I feel like it. The view from the Toronto waterfront. Freshly baked bread. Discovering I could make challah. my dill plant. Our morning routine. Making Things I love Thursday lists. 🙂
