“When anybody asks, 'What are you writing about now?' if I try to reply, the book-in-the-works sounds so idiotic to me that I think, 'Why am I trying to write that puerile junk?' So now I give up; if I could talk about it, I wouldn't have to write it."
- Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet


Things That Make Me Happy...

Tuesday, December 23, 2008 no particular order.
  • a high of 22 degrees when yesterday was zero
  • this joke - the alternate version totally outdoes the original
  • bacon
  • cheese
  • fresh untouched snow
  • puppy and kitty kisses
  • this monkey
  • fresh-cut Christmas trees, softly lit and covered in nostalgia-inducing ornaments
  • the sound of my Geek's voice when he gets home from work each night
  • soft kitty bellies begging for rubbing
  • a box full yarn waiting to be used
  • home-made vanilla pudding, still warm, topped with real whipped cream
  • a day off
  • the distinct rhyming and rhythm patterns of old fashioned poetry
  • clever children's poetry like poems by Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein
  • picking out gifts for friends and family and wrapping them up pretty
  • being at home
  • sunbeams pouring through my living room windows
