Tag! I'm IT!

Well, maybe it was a ploy to get me back to posting - which is long overdue. I suppose I just got lost in the hazy, lazy days of this past weekend, and have yet to fully resurface! But Desert Songbird has tagged me with "My Top Ten Simple Pleasures." My difficulty is going to be coming up with only TEN!
But first, I have to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to the Texas Aggie Football team! I'm always proud of my alma mater, but watching them saw varsity's horns off in last Friday's Lone Star Showdown was divine. It almost made up for the Razorbacks' senseless loss in their hopeful race for the National Championship. Almost. At least I've still got Peyton and the Colts to cheer about.

Okay, so here are the ten (in no particular order):
1. Snuggling with my husband and daughter on a cold day.
2. Receiving wet, joyous puppy kisses from my dog.
3. Watching an exciting/back-and-forth NFL or NCAA football game.
4. Getting wrapped up in a romantic movie, especially if it makes me cry.
5. Playing a nice, flowing piece on the piano.
6. Getting lost in a book for days.
7. Wrapping up in a warm blanket (or towel), fresh from the dryer.
8. Laughing with my friends over the SILLIEST things.
9. Making ANY dessert, and having exclusive "licking of the spoon" rights.
10. Having a day to sleep in, with NO obligations to go anywhere or do anything.
By the way, the winners of last week's "Find Amber" contest are Shauna and Marnie! I was actually very glad that Amber didn't do the "pursed lip pout" thing in this photo. And even though it looks like she's all "Hook 'Em Horns," I know she's aiming for "Rock-n-Roll Fingers."

Tag time! My chosen victims are local Songbird, Shauna, and Karmyn R.

Oh, the flowing piece on the piano sounds nice. Could you record one for us all to enjoy?

I have on instrumental Christmas music as I work. So peaceful. Counters the calls I get from grumpy customers.

Yeah, the ploy worked! Glad you're back, Tiggerlane, and wonderful list!

Oh, forgot one thing:

GO COLTS!

Memphis Steve said...

Oooh, what a conflict we have here. My Longhorns needed that win and I was unhappy with your assassins shot on Colt. But as an Auburn fan I think Arkansas winning would have done better for me. But I don't dislike LSU so I'm torn. And as a Cowboys fan I was happy for the big win against Peyton and the Colts, although I don't dislike the Colts either. Actually, now that I look at this I think I have almost as much conflict with myself as I do with you and your teams. Argh!

Go Cowboys!

#10 would have been my #1. Nice list.

My dad is an Aggie! Small world.

Foul!! Foul!! I was the first to comment on your "find Amber" blog and I located her in less than 2 seconds....Oh, what's that you say? I wasn't eligible?!!! Oh, all right. I guess I do have a major advantage seeing as how I've known her since her birth.

Ok, I am with you on your simple pleasures. I'd probably add 'and have the cake rise' to #9, but that could just be because I am crap when it comes to desserts.

Karmyn R said...

Warm Towels and puppy kisses. Says it all!!! Okay - I'll do it, in a day or two.

I would like to sit and listen to you play a nice flowing piece on the piano.

Angelina said...

nice list! I don't get all the football stuff.

But oooooh-anything fresh from the dryer is so divine!

Laughing over the silliest things is a favorite of mine too.

Also the piano thing, surprisingly. I know only one song on it now which is "Pachabel's Canon". It puts me in a kind of happy trance. Not unlike meditation.

Tiggerlane - I'll be getting on this hopefully over the weekend. . .

You have such a pretty daughter!

Karmyn R said...

Okay - I did it. That was actually nice to do - thanks for the tag.
