Treasures 2005_24

Every scene, even the commonest, is wonderful, if only one can detach oneself, casting off all memory of use and custom and behold it, as it were, for the first time.
-- Arnold Bennett

Treasures are positive things that strike my fancy, that make me feel happy or thankful or interested. Treasures are memories encapsulated in just a few words. These are my Treasures for the past week.

  • Upside down kitties near me as I work. Everything is better when I have kitties nearby.

  • Sharing a dark-chocolate-dipped macaroon with Rich

  • Another post-season rainy day. Taking a nap after work. Lying in bed, rubbing Mezzaluna's ears, and listening to the rain on the screen porch roof.

  • Listening to a hooty owl somewhere outside as I lay in bed one night.

  • Squirrel commandeering my pillow at nap time (and looking most pleased with himself)

  • Playing the "monster in the cave" game with Raven (ohboyohboyohboyohboy)

  • Bright orange wildflowers in a vacant lot a few blocks from our house

  • My new cursor set.

  • The new "South Beach" chocolate flavor cereal bars (yummm)

  • A relaxing weekend

  • Good books to read.

  • Sitting with Rich in the living room in the evening, each of us with a book, surrounded by blobs of sleeping fur.
