Day 11.  List 15 of your favorite things.

I’m going to leave the obvious things like my son, my family, etc out of this list.  It is obvious that I love them and I especially love my son, his kisses, hugs, etc. In no particular order:

1.  Travel.  Deep down, travel is what makes me tick.  I wish I could drop everything and just travel the world for a year or two.  That was the plan many years ago and I still have hope that I will be able to do this at some point.

2.  Apple pie.  Well, nearly all baked apple desserts. I haven’t met an apple pie I didn’t like.  I just love the flavor of cooked apples.

3.  Beef.  No shame, I love beef.  I love good steak, I love good burgers, I love good beef stew.  I had the best steak of my life at The Ritz in London for my first wedding anniversary some years ago.  It was Chateaubriand and I still dream about it. 

4.  Cookbooks.  That’s no secret considering I own nearly 400.  I’m a sucker for them.  I often joke that I should start a private lending library.

5.  Requited love.  Who doesn’t love that?

6.  My iPhone.  I have a love-hate relationship with my phone.  I hate that I’m so dependent on it.

7.  Shoes.  Again, no secret here.  I LOVE shoes.  As a matter of fact, shoes are second only to travel.  I should have put this list in order.

8.  White chocolate macadamia nut cookies.

9.  Sticky toffee pudding.  Oh yeah.

10.  Baking.  I simply love baking.  Life would be very sad if I could no longer bake.

11.  The color blue, especially light blue. 

12.  Sleeping. 

13.  Knowledge.  I love being knowledgeable.  I often complain about school and I don’t always love the process of learning but I always the result.  I get a sort of high from possessing knowledge.  Knowledge is my drug of choice….and it IS addictive.

14.  Pearls.  There’s something about pearls.

15.  Pepsi Max.  Just because I kicked the habit doesn’t mean I don’t still love it.
