Talking Things I love, besides food, are...

Yup, this is a feel-good thread!

Things I love, besides food, are...

my fuzzy pets and their unconditional love.
the rush I get after exercise (I did all that and I survived!).
being able to lean over and paint my toenails all girly-like.
sleeping in.
doing crafty things, like quilting.
reading!!!
a cool breeze when I'm lying on the grass in the sun.
the tinkle of my charm bracelet.
surprising flowers popping up in my garden.
squirrels.
fuzzy caterpillars.
Spring!

Okay...your turn! What do you love besides food?

I love my baby daughter's laugh
I love setting a good example for her
I love riding a bicycle with my baby-girl and hearing her sing la-la-la behind me.
I love building sandcastles
I love waking up first and sneaking in mommy-time
I love the feel of new running shoes
I love anticipating a soon-approaching vacation
I love my husband, he's fantastic and a perfect dad

What do I love, besides food? Too many things to list but here are a few:
  • being alone in my house
  • my darling dogs
  • my husband (of course!)
  • gin and tonic on the deck after a hot and busy day
  • sitting by the woodstove on a cold winter morning
  • the library
  • walking in the woods by the Lake
  • the Island
  • my sister (even when she nags me!)
  • sewing
  • the CBC
  • my garden - especially the early morning view from the bedroom
  • lots more.....

What everybody said about their family, and

We have put bird feeders in the back yard, and I love watching them - every bird is so beautiful, and our squirrels are fat!

Yay, I'm so glad this thread took off!

Penny, you can totally borrow the idea! I love spreading good feelings! And by the way, you should not be allowed to post your picture when you are that GORGEOUS!!! : You are putting us all to shame, Penny, Little Chick, Michelle and Jenn! Before you know it, everyone's going to post their picture and this will become a forum of models!

I feel pretty for not posting that I love my DH. Today is our five year wedding anniversary...and I do love him very much...so much that it seems sort of obvious! That's why I didn't post it. But allow me to add it now, 'kay? :

Krista, I LOVE fat squirrels! Our yard is full of the "tree rats", as our neighbors call them, and they are so fun to watch!

I just added some pics to the picture forum! Hopefully some from this weekend came out decently enough to post more recent ones.

I even have my long sleeves rolled up! Something I would shudder from a year ago!

Laurie - I agree!
