List Love Book Club: The Golden Years

Each Week ElleinadspirA Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List how you would like to spend time when you’re a senior citizen

Yay! This is not just a great topic, it's also the subject of many random daydreams.

  1. Visiting my kick-ass son who is a Top Chef and has at least one even more kick-ass child
  2. Traveling everywhere
  3. Driving a mini-cooper. A bumble bee yellow one. All electric hopefully.
  4. Living in a loft apartment (I mean obviously, your knees go as you get older, no more stairs!)
  5. Patronizing the arts (in my daydreams I am not just retired, I am also wealthy)
  6. Dancing tango
  7. Cooking through my 30th-something cookbook project
  8. Enjoying the memories of having completed large chunks of stuff on my list and dreaming up new ones!
  9. Sleeping in everyday
  10. Doing things that make young people say "I hope when I'm your age..."

Am I the only one who fantasizes about retirement? I do my best to enjoy each moment and stage in life but living as chronic-overplanner-ahead is in my nature. I'm the only one left with the link so feel free to hitch yourself to this wagon.

PS-This is the last week of the LIst Love Book Club but (obviously) not that last list because I'm working on some New Years resolutions!

List Love Book Club: Wish Lists

Each Week ElleinadspirA Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List your wish list

I can't believe we are so close to the end of Listography! It seems like just yesterday Torrie, D and I were talking about starting this project! Today is such an easy list since my Mom just asked me the same question the other day! This is not the list I gave to her, in real life I like to be a little more practical, this is my literal "wish" list. ;)

Wow, I guess it seems my penchant for bright and ridiculous is not going away anytime soon! I guess I'm like Popeye, I am what I am. Here's wishing that each of you get something wish list worthy from someone you love and get the opportunity to give something wish list worthy to someone you love!

List Love Book Club: Taking in Strays

Each Week Elleinadspir, A Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List the animals you've adopted

Shortest list ever; the only dog I've ever "adopted" is Nutella. She has an excellent pedigree (the daughter of two strays) and is named after one of my favorite chefs (Nigella Lawson-Arnold calls her Nutella). We love her, she is very poorly behaved, but a great foot warmer at night.

Torrie's got the link. Hit her up!

List Love Book Club: Animals that Suck

Each Week ElleinadspirA Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List your least favorite animals

What the frak kind of prompt is this? I'm going to set loose my least favorite animals on this topic!

  1. Mosquitoes
  2. Those little bugs that get in your face unexpectedly when you are innocently walking down the street
  3. Lice
  4. Ticks
  5. Anything small that causes me trouble. Big animals are fine.

Hmmm... it seems that I have a lot of least favorite insects. Is there anybody out there that likes lice? I've got the link.

List Love Book Club: Pet Teachers

Each Week ElleinadspirA Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List all the teachers you can remember

  1. Mrs. Erickson-My 1st grade teacher  was in musicals in her spare time. She had us perform a musical called the Happy School of Fish which is an insane amount of extra work. I like to think she'd be pleased with the musical nerd I've become.
  2. Mrs. Manning-My high school Spanish teacher. She was so, so kind and so, so good at what she did. I didn't appreciate her skills as an educator until I got to my first upper-division Spanish class at UC Davis. I had already read the entire reading list in high school. Crazy.
  3. Sara Harris-My piano teacher. I took piano lessons from the age of 9-18 from the same teacher. Although I don't play at anywhere near a professional level I still can bang the keys well enough to be my own personal kareoke machine. Sara taught me to love, appreciate and understand music in a way I never would've had I not learned to play piano. She and her elderly parents were also weekly fixtures in my life throughout my childhood: I loved them and still do.

Who are the teachers you remember? I'm hoping they were influential in a positive way! Leave 'em in the comments or hop over to link up at Danielle's!
