Ten Things for Today


I haven’t missed a day of posting this month, and I don’t want to break that record


I don’t really have a great deal to say, or much time to write


I will just list for you ten reasons that I am completely glad to be alive:

  1. Crocuses poking their heads up, even though there’s still a little snow on the ground
  2. A pile of unread books near my bed
  3. The smell of fresh coffee
  4. A dog sleeping with it’s head resting on me
  5. Looking at seed packets and dreaming
  6. Friends, real and virtual, near and far away
  7. The existence of oysters
  8. Pictures of Ted’s Portugese Easter bread doves
  9. Magglio Ordonez is still with the Tigers
  10. Asparagus is in season

I’ll be back tomorrow with something a little more substantive.


About imagineannie

I feel like I'm fifteen - does that count? I'm lots of things, I get paid to be the Managing Editor for a local news publication, and I love my job. I am also inordinately fond of reading, animals (I have four), elephants, owls, hedgehogs writing, tramping in the woods, cooking India, Ireland, England, avocado toast, Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter, Little Women, Fun Home, Lumber Janes, Fangirl, magic, Neil Gaiman, Jane Austen, YA books, not YA books, classical music, Salinger (OMG SALINGER), Brahms, key lime pie, indie music, podcasts, sleeping in, road trips, marmalade, museums, bookstores, the Oxford comma, BBC, The Miss Fisher Mysteries, birdwatching, seashells, kombucha, and stickers. Not a huge fan of chewing gum, jazz, trucker hats or dystopian and/or post-apolcalyptic fiction (but I'll try anything).

  1. That’s a mighty fine list of reasons to be alive! I never would have thought to put down “the existence of oysters” but now that I see it I agree with it!! Thank God for oysters!!
    (Damn! Now I am craving ice-cold oysters on the half-shell with freezer-chilled Grey Goose vodka chasers!!)

  2. Trisha, I don’t think it’s a good idea for you to have oysters and Grey Goose without supervision. I’m here for you. 🙂

  3. those are all wonderfully calming thoughts, even Magglio. 😉 seed packets are full of so many possibilities aren’t they?

  4. I have an idea for next week’s menu…….Oysters, and throw some Grey Goose in the freezer.

    It just came to me.

    How bout Thursday………..

  5. Michelle, thanks! I am a little intimidated by the seed packets because I haven’t done well in the past, buut Magglio…ah, Magglio is pure unadulterated bliss!

    Mr. Annie, that’s a $70.00 dinner. Maybe Stoli and frozen shrimp?

  6. I will concede the fancy vodka. We have some pretty good tequila on top of the fridge. Holding out for the oysters though.

    • Maybe the tequila would go nicely with tonight’s tacos…I tripled the serranos, so we’ll need a little liquid. 🙂
