Well Fed— Things That Tickle My Fancy Today, Not Necessarily Tomorrow, nor Next Week, nor a Year Ago, nor a Year from Now


I’ve mentioned circle journals before – that project where we all start a scrapbook/journal and then pass it around until everyone in the group has added their page. Our fall scrapbook retreat is coming up in two days and those of us who did circle journals will swap them for the last time. I just finished, “Things That Tickle My Fancy.” I had to think about that theme for long while. Pink feathery boas and frittatas were the first two fancy things I thought of and neither one tickles mine. I found my list of things much more pragmatic:


children’s picture books
baskets
miniatures
audio books
farm stands
kids’ lemonade stands
rag dolls
old friends together
hot fudge milkshakes
fry sauce
fresh vegetables
full moons


What are five things that tickle your fancy today?

Five things that tickle my fancy today:

Hearing the rain on the roof, while I get to stay nice and dry inside.

Hot apple cider

A full tank of gas

Completing a project

Trying a new recipe

Yesterday it was,

Reed quoting Toy Story 3 and thinking he's hilarious.

Finding out my finger is 'probably' going to get the feeling back.

Receiving the Nov Ensign.

Zucchini bread.

No lines at Costco and not overspending. Tempting store at Christmas.

Having mail delivered to my door (and not a locked box across the street)

Finding good grocery deals by scoping out the "Manager Special" sticker mark-downs

Jeopardy on DVR and not having to watch commercials for which I'm not the target demographic

Knowing that I'm capable of preparing every single element of a Thanksgiving dinner (and have, but not all at once!)

Counting down the days until we're in UT/ID! The thought of mountains-- ahhh! :)

Your blog in general - and posts like this that remind me what matters - that's #1.

The smell of poplar leaves today.

Someone quoting in public from a medieval poem (Gawain & the Green Knight: ". . . Wild winds whistle, wrestling the sun;
Leaves launch from each limb and land on the soil, . . . ")

Sunshine after rain.

A stranger's baby smiling at me across the room.

(OH, and your word verif which reminds me it's time to "snaptu"!)

Rainy days while I'm cozy with a blanket and book

Walking on the beach holding Steve's hand

Finding a new antique store

Rearranging a room so it looks more homey and inviting

When Steve calls from work and says he's coming home early!

Jammies with feet

a very plain ordinary day

having a card ready for when I want to write a note

a full pantry

kids practicing piano without being asked

A dryer that actually dries the clothes the first time through.

Time at home to work on a creative project, even though Jill can't join me.

Eva wanting to snuggle with me on the couch.

Leaves blowing down the street.

A well-stocked studio, so I can make a guest book for a friend's wedding without buying a thing!

Susan Boyle, Audio Books, milk, passing the temple in rush hour traffic, and small acts of service.
