our simple things!

Okay, I'll admit it.  I'm a junkie.  I LOVE candles.  What is your "simple thing" that makes your day better? coffee? a walk? getting into a good discussion? 

Want to know Ryan's?  Its youtube.  And not just youtube.  its playing with homemade videos of our family, events etc.  his latest project (and i'm very embaressed but oddly amused to admit his latest project!) last friday evening we watched Alvin and the chipmunks dvd.  it was so cute.  so ryan has changed a couple of our home videos to us sounding like chipmonks.  sad i know.  this is what amuses us! maybe we'll post one on here. 
  and Tuckers?

anything he can put in his mouth!

I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU ON THE CANDLE THING AS YOU KNOW.

MY OTHER SIMPLE THING MUST HAVE IS 30 MINUTES OF DOWNTIME A DAY. WHETHER I READ THE WORK, WATCH TV, SIT ON THE COUCH AND DO NOTHING. I HAVE TO HAVE THOSE FEW MINUTES TO MYSELF.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITH OUT IT!!!!!!

here are my daily gotta-have-'ems!

-my iPod. i know that makes it sound like i'm technologically advanced, but truly it's the only gadget i can work by myself. i LOVE iTunes podcasts! they're free, can be found on just about any topic you can think of, and keep me in touch with the rest of the world. i listen to news, cooking shows, talk shows, storytellers, comedy, etc! i love having a steady stream of GOOD ENGLISH comin' through the earbuds!

-coffee in any and all forms :)

-yoga

-oatmeal! i love it for breakfast, with nuts and raisins and brown sugar... warm and nourishing and tasty!

;)
