This is my favorite tree to camp under- I love to wake up in the morning and see it

Postcards

To celebrate my 30th postcard, I have randomly listed 30 things I love the best:

1. Taking my dogs to the dog park

2. Ice cubes. Like I said before:  party in your glass

3. Frosted sugar cookies

4. New socks

5. New shoes to go with the new socks

6. My nieces and nephews

7. Driving around Napa with my sister Teri drinking hot chocolate from 7-11 or a ginormous ice tea from a can (depends on the season), just shooting the breeze and maybe going to Target if I’ve been especially good. Being free-range with Teri is just the best!

8. Beets- all vegetables, really. I had a great conversation with a friend (I promised him that he would remain anonymous) about how beets turn everything red (if you know what I’m sayin’)

9. Changing chords quickly while I am playing the banjo (okay, so I am not that fast at all, but I’m working on it)

10. Watching Lucille swim- that dog paddles like she’s being chased by sharks!

11. Hearing my sister’s children call my Mom “Grams” it is pretty sweet and kinda heartwarming and it makes me feel guilty for trying to get them to call her “Me Maw” (but not that guilty)

12. The way my dogs are so happy to see me when I come in the door and it doesn’t matter if I’ve been gone all day or 5 minutes- they are always happy to see me

13. The way my students are so excited to see me and it doesn’t matter if I’ve been gone all day or…

14. When someone calls me “friend”- I just love that!

15. The way compost smells

16. Camping under my favorite tree at Strawberry Music Festival

17. My family

18. Cake with lots of frosting

19. Going to Zumba with my friend Cheryl and making her laugh (did I mention that I’m not coordinated and she is?)

20. Sundance Books- they have a huge selection of books and cards, plus I can bring my dogs in while I browse

21. My husband’s laugh

22. Practical jokes that are actually funny and don’t involve water, farm animals or mail order brides. Earlier this month, I came home to find a 1971 Dodge camper van thingy in my driveway. I named it Big Red and began making semi-serious plans about where I was going to take it camping. Red was so big that it blocked out the sun, had a funky smell and I was scared to drive it because it was such a beast. I was the proud owner for about a day and half until the real owner came back for it. It now lives in front of his house and I hear his neighbors are not happy about it.

This bad boy was mine for about 13 hours...I love you Big Red!

23. Spring, summer and fall

24. Chubby kitties

25. When Clementine curls up on my lap- I feel like I’ve won a huge prize and that’s pretty great

26. The grilled cheese sandwiches my Mom makes me- they are so good!

27. The way my Dad thought I was pretty great

28. The finger picks I wear for playing the banjo

29.  When Lillian puts her long lady toes on the heater vent to warm them up- that dog has some freaky long toes!

30.  Sleeping in on the weekend and not having Walter jump on my head nineteen thousand times

Just one more- which makes this one really # 31- taking the day off and having coffee with a friend (Thanks, Ruby!)
