Treasures 2004_09

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, things that make me feel happy or thankful or interested, things that are worth remembering. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words.

I gather my treasures through out the week. Please feel free to start your own lists of Treasures on your own weblog or here in the comments.

My treasures for the past week include

  • Eating at the dining table. You wouldn't think that was a big deal, until you haven't had a dining table for close to two weeks! We got the table put back on Sunday but didn't have furniture glides on any chairs until Tuesday night.

  • Nature's fireworks. There was a good lightning storm on Wednesday night. Growing up in Central Pennsylvania, one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch and listen to the rain and the thunder, watch the rain and the lightning. We don't get to do that very often in Beautiful Bay Area, CA, so last night was a special treat. Lots of lightning, lots of rain; the storm lasted at least half an hour. Poor Rich went to bed early and missed it all.

  • Sharing chicken from my lunch salad with Bebop

  • A homecooked meal that worked well and tasted great and I did everything myself - I even got compliments ("This is really good!") from a friend.

  • Falling asleep surrounded by cats

  • Waking up surrounded by cats

  • Raven "grabbing" my leg from behind, then running away "Chase me chase me!"

  • A friend asking if I would consider setting up his web site for him (and offering to pay for it)

  • Flopped out kitties soaking in sunbeams

  • 125 steps on the stepper machine!!

  • Raven, postponing my leaving the house by 10 or 15 minutes to play a game of Chase Me!

  • Cat snuggle time interrupting what I thought I was going to be doing this afternoon (cat snuggling is a better idea!)
