FRIDAY STIR FRY - These Are A Few Of the Things I Love
I decided to write about some things in life I love. Let me just preface this by saying - this is not easy for me folks. A lot of people think I am pretty negative. I tend to think I'm realistic. I hear you laughing. Shut up.

I love being off work on a work day. It feels like playing hooky from school except I'm getting paid for it.

I love how people who don't really know me at work, fear me. And the people at work that do know me, keep the secret that I'm really a nice person.

I love the fact I wrote a book and it got published.

I love the fact that when my publisher closed shop, I learned how to self-publish so my book is still out there.

I love that I've met so many supportive and wonderful friends by belonging to writer's groups in my area.

I love summer. Don't go away, please, please, I'm begging you.

I love baseball. Go Cards!

I love beer. Nothing like a cold beer, at a bar, talking to strangers, to make you feel alive.

And finally, I love my son and I can't wait to welcome his son into my unhappy life sometime around Christmas.

Please tell me what you love.


  1. With all those things you love, you can't possibly have an unhappy life. Cardinals won tonight. New grand baby. Great writer friends. I'll help you hang on to summer cause I hate winter too. Hate the smell of beer, so can't help with that. But you can have my share. Be happy. It'll make your enemies jealous.

    1. Well, aren't you just a cockeyed optimist! Thanks for making me smile!

  2. I love vacation days in the middle of the week.
    Free time home alone.
    Monster and superhero movies.
    Dogs. family.
    My home in the woods.
    Fast internet (which I do NOT have)
    Fall and Spring.
    The Northwest.
    Italian food.

    1. Great list Lisa. I love seeing pictures of your home in the woods.
