I love...

In honor of Valentine's day, I thought I'd list ten loves (besides my husband and children and family). Yes, I know that's quite similar to yesterday's post, but it never hurts to make more lists like these, especially when I don't feel so well (both physically and mentally).
My life is really kind of wonderful, I just have to make myself see.
So here it goes:

I love:

1. this house, the large garden and all it's potential

2. the view from this house

(I didn't say this would be new and original loves)

3. this silly cat, that makes our house just a little bit more like a home

4. my kitchen and all the things I (want to) make there

5. flowers! The one thing I do miss around here. Lots of green, but not too many flowers (most plants and trees bloom just for a few days).
I did plant bougainvilleas (they bloom year-round), but they're struggling a bit. The desert rose is still going strong though (I've had flowers all year) and right now my aloes are blooming too.

6. laundry drying outside (year-round!)

7. weekend plans (happy hour, beach bbq with friends, some garden work and a lot of doing nothing)

8. papaya (not from my own trees yet, but I do love eating it - with a bit of lime juice)

9. blogging, because it helps me to think of happy things to share

10. you! because blogging is more fun when people are reading along


  1. What a fun list! I'm happy you are happy in your home and that your dreams came true for relocating.

    1. Yes, it's hard sometimes to be so far away from family, but it is a dream come true.

  2. hello G! Happy Valentines Day!
    I love you, too!
    and your house with the windows open and laundry drying in the sun and sea and blue sky and the dark, warm wood in your bright, white kitchen are all so very lovely!

    1. Thank you! Oh yes, the sun! That's the best part of living here.

  3. A great list! And you should love that view, over and over and over!!
