more things i love



i love
my sister
 she sends me emails 
after she reads my blog 
recently
 she suggested boots
 from
i might like
 because
 she read of my ice escapades

i love
 certain colors
 middle of the road colors
 like red nouveau nail polish
 tomato vs red or orange

  very shallow
 but 
i am not deep 



i love
 those little shrub like trees
 alberta spruce
 (i googled window box shrub/tree)
 i see in store displays
 i want some for my window box 
i
almost 
almost
went into a florist shop on the eastside
 last week to ask how much they were

 almost



i love
watching award shows
 another indication of my shallowness
 i love the red carpet parade
 i dont care who designed your ensemble
 i just love watching 

i loved
 my husband's remark
 'everyone has a team' 
almost as much as tina fey's joking
 gravity 
was about
george clooney
 preferring  death
 to
spending another minute
 with a woman his own age

i love
 good writing 
i dont watch sitcoms 
but 
i do
 i admit it 
i watch 
soap operas

 i transferred my addiction
 from
 all my children
 to 
general hospital

 its not good writing
 soaps are never good writing 
but
 they entertain 
they are escapism 
watching
 for me


i love
 our new freezer to microwave container
 its pba free,
its glass
its got this cute little button
 to vent the steam
 and
 its inexpensive

frigoverra




i love
 noticing things
 that maybe 
have been there forever 

like the other morning
 as i walked up the street
 i looked up


 there 
on the top floor
 in the windows
 were
 lots of little lights
 at first
 i thought 
candles
 no
 no one 
would leave
 candles burning
 in the window

 oh 
they're little lights
 in 
window boxes 
j'adore
 i even took photos
 silly
 because 
my iphone has no real zoom 
the one it does have makes things 'noisy'

looking up 
i love looking up
 there's
 always
 a 
water tower
 or
 two

  2. No wonder we get along so well! I was front and center GLUED to the TV Sunday from the pre-show glam to the after parties! I LOVE that stuff! Also loved Tina's comment about George Clooney! Who did you think was best dressed? Did you see Wolf of Wall Street yet? Wow!!

  5. I love this. I love red. I love the lights at the top of that building. That's something that would catch my eye too. Happy Wednesday! :)

  6. Lol, I love much of the same sameness. Except TV. Rarely watch TV in Van, and only usually in England...sometimes. But I have a story. Watched General Hospital when I was pregnant with Jonathan...33+yrs ago then baby and TV was off, but then 12 yrs later and again 20 yrs later I got stuck in bed...difficult pregnancy with C and hospital and I tuned into the show again and guess what? NOTHING CHANGED! Same people, just slightly older, silly plot lines and, you know, Victor is ever his blackness and Nikki Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo Landers Chow Sharpe Abbot Newman Abbot Newman...etc, spends an awful lot of money on changing her personalised stationery! :)

  8. I love awards shows, too, but never remember to watch them. So I settle for the highlights the next day. I'm with Hilary - try Modern Family if you haven't already.

  10. And I love your "I Love" posts!!
    Isn't it wonderful when you notice things that were always there, and yet never seemed "important" enough to really look at? xo.

  12. I love that you love the Alberta Spruce. Aren't they darling? I have one just outside the door to my right, right now. It has appeared on my blog more than once.
    As for nail polish, I had my toes done in a virulent green* to match my flip-flops when I went to Janice's, and they were a hit. Not so much when I wasn't wearing my flip-flops, though.
