more things i love

i love
my sister
 she sends me emails 
after she reads my blog 
 she suggested boots
i might like
 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
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 
went into a florist shop on the eastside
 last week to ask how much they were


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
was about
george clooney
 preferring  death
spending another minute
 with a woman his own age

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

 i transferred my addiction
 all my children
general hospital

 its not good writing
 soaps are never good writing 
 they entertain 
they are escapism 
 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
 its inexpensive


i love
 noticing things
 that maybe 
have been there forever 

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

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

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

looking up 
i love looking up
water tower
