Things I Love

Posted by Roses on April 26, 2012

1 Those early morning moments alone for prayer time and coffee; my new, vivid blue bedroom walls; early ’70′s Corvettes; mopping my floors with lavender-scented cleaner; toasting wieners and marshmallows over a bonfire in fall; lemon and rosemary roasted chicken; old Bette Davis and Joan Crawford movies; my nephew’s sharp wit; and working on a project with my mom and Aunt Ruth when they get goofy.

2 Leaving my kitchen window open so I can hear my daughter’s giggles when she jumps on the trampoline; riding the roller coasters at Kings Island; giving myself a pedicure and ending with hot pink nail polish; fresh fish, dipped in cornmeal and fried over a campfire; reading anything I can find on Cleopatra; Obsession cologne; going to Keenland in the fall just to take in the sights; homemade potato soup with bacon; and getting silly on FB with my friends.

3 Homemade peanut butter fudge; sleeping with my window open on summer nights, listening to the frogs; that “new car” smell; watching old Carol Burnett skits; going bowling …
