Ten On Tuesday


How do I keep this down to 10 things?  I guess it's a good challenge to have because today it's all about 10 Everyday Things That Delight You.

1.  Water.  I see lots of it during my day.  When I wake up I see the bay, when I bring Mowgli outside I see (and hear) the stream, when I go to work I cross two bridges.  There's water everywhere.  
2.  My breakfast bar.  It was my brother's and I love that I sit there in the morning (looking at the view above) and drink my coffee.  It's a high top table with two chairs that are real comfy.  And the top is butcher block.  And the shelves are filled with......
3.  My yarn.  I can seriously just look at some of it and smile.  
4.  My nails.  I've been using Jamberry nail wraps and I love how they look.  And how they still look perfect after two weeks.
5.  I Love You.  We always say that to each other when we walk out the door each day and when we get off the phone.  My hubby's family always did that and we do it with our daughter.  
6.  Body spray.  Victoria's Secret to be exact.  I love the clean fresh smell. Love Addict seems to be the scent of choice lately.
7.   My cameras.  I have a collection now although the Nikon 1 is the one I grab most frequently.  
8.  My iced pumpkin coffee from Dunkin Donuts.  They still have it!  I know the day is coming real soon where I will be out of luck until October.  
9.  Alone time.  Does that sound weird?  I usually have about an hour to myself when I get home after work and I more often than not spend that time cleaning up, but I just love to have some "me" time.
10.  My headphones,  They are usually what I have on my head during alone time so I can catch up on audio books or just listen to music.  And they are bluetooth so I'm not dragging the cord around and getting caught on everything.

Sitting at your breakfast bar, by your yarn, and drinking in the view sounds truly delightful, along with alone time and bluetooth headphones!

Water is a delight. Living deep in a city, I sigh with appreciation at your view outside the window.

Alone time doesn't sound weird at all. It's what keeps me sane!

Hi Donna! I really wanted to join in on this one, but am a crazy lady trying to catch up after the past few weeks of being down. :( So glad you can still get your nummy coffees. :)

PS: I thrive on alone time. :)

Your list makes me smile Donna, I knew I loved you and now I see why, we are so much alike, from the water and bridges, yarn, saying I love you as we walk out the door, headphones, alone time, cameras and care to guess just what body spray is on my dresser;)!

I moved from Long Island to the mountains a few years ago and your post brought back so many fond memories. Love your '10'.

Saying I love you when you walk in the door is such a lovely habit to get into!
I'm very envious of your water view. The mountains are wonderful, but I always crave water. I should investigate blue tooth ear phones.

I really enjoy reading this post. Thank you so much.

That is a gorgeous view! I'm all about alone time, even though I can only grab it in small amounts throughout the day, or late at night after the kids are sleeping.

loved your list and I'm glad you have your brother's breakfast bar, what a wonderful way to start each day thinking of him :)
