First - don't judge the editor for ending the title of this post with a preposition.  I'm currently in "one of those moods" and have just had my last nerve stepped on. I'm feeling a bit rebellious and snarky and bad grammar is a safe outlet.  :-)

So.  I decided to take myself to a happy place, and write a post about the thing I never get tired of.   Being with Jesus, my husband and my family are the absolute tops for me.  They are above this list, so I didn't include them. 

1.  Starbucks Gingerbread Lattes

2.  The smell of orange blossoms

3.  My children's laughter (wish I could hear it now instead of the bickering that took my last nerve)

4.  Diet Coke

5.  Macayo's Green Corn Tamales with Baja Sauce

6.  New Orleans French Quarter

7.  Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia

8.  Sitting by a stream in the mountains

9.  Hearing how God changed someone's life

10.  Watching Fringe

11.  Singing

12.  Reading Victoria Magazine

13.  Eating a scone while drinking hot tea

14.  Roses

15.  Watching Paula Deen on Food Network

16.  American Idol  (I even vote)

17.  Reading my Bible

18.  Hanging out with friends from my small group  (John, Candy, Marcus, Jackie, Ana Ruth, Ruben, Heather, Stephanie, Dave, Ryan & Katie - I love those guys!)

19.  Reading a historical romance novel  (I love Liz Curtis Higgs and Francine Rivers)

20.  Watching my dogs play.  

Ok, I feel better.  I'd love to hear what you never tire of seeing, doing, eating, watching, etc.

In His Love,

Well that's easy! I can be sitting at the computer - work, work, work and the little bell sounds to let me know I've got mail. Every so often I check it and it reads, "Welcome Home". I never tire of that. ;0)

My last nerve was stepped upon thirty minutes ago, so I gladly participate.

Things I never tire of:

Watching movies with my hubby while he rubs my feet.

A hot shower on a cold morning.

The beach on a breezy, warm evening.

The scents of lilacs, wisteria, and lily of the valley.

Watching episodes of NCIS.



Hot fudgy brownies with cookies n' cream ice cream slathered in hot fudge.

My children's laughter.

Writers Conferences and Womens Conferences.

Taking pictures of nature and things and people.

I concur on Colonial Williamsburg. That place is great. My kids think it's kind of nerdy to like historcal stuff, but they'll come around.

I would add to my list llamas (they're adorable and practical creatures) and hot air balloons (whimsical and beautiful)
