I was tagged a few weeks ago by Kim, a fellow sketchy knitter. I was asked to write about 7 things I love. I could do the cop out and tell you about how much I love D ( my husband and best friend) and how Fred and Ginger (the cats) are the cutest. But I’d like to tell you more. I already told you 3 things I love last year. I need 7 new ones…
Lets see where this goes.
What is blob? It’s a snack around here. If we’re a bit peckish in the evening, we make a batch of blob. It’s really just some rice krispie squares that underachieved. They didn’t become square. They embraced the entropy of the world and became a blob.
Really, the truth is that we don’t want to wait, so we eat it while it’s still warm and gooey.
2. The couch.
I should have fluffed it better and made it look good for the picture. D and I are both small people. We live in a small scale house. We looked long and hard to find a couch that fit us and that didn’t overpower the room. We ended up with this one.
I love the couch because it’s comfortable and it does a lot of good stuff. When I can’t sleep, I come out and read or work on it, then sleep out here. The other night D couldn’t sleep so he came out to read and sleep and his comment was that the couch is more comfortable than our bed. I think that describes it perfectly.
It also doesn’t stain and the cat hair just wipes off. Horray for microfibre!
3. The Cottage
My grandparents purchased this cottage in the 1950s and we are lucky that it is still in the family. Currently my Aunt owns it, but we can use it on several occaisions in the summer and fall. It’s so peaceful, a great getaway and gets me back in touch with my family and my childhood. There are several traditions about the cottage (and D’s trying to start one about jumping in the lake straight from the car!), but my favourite is trying to avoid doing the dishes by going for a canoe paddle right after dinner to “see the sun set”. It works about 75% of the time (shhh!).
It’s a board game. It’s got very easy rules. It can be played by 2 to 12 people (OK, numbers that aren’t multiples of 2 or 3, like 5, 7 and 11 don’t work). It’s great when some players are 3 sheets to the wind. Get a copy. You won’t regret it.
They are so comfy and have a style all their own. Kinda like me?
6. The basement wall.
7. The internets.
I’m addicted. That is all.
Have you seen I can has cheezburger? Fred and Ginger now talk like that.
Phew. That was 7. If you read this, consider yourself tagged and leave me a comment to say you’re doing it!
