Six Things

Heather tagged me, so here goes:

Six things that make me happy, in no particular order:

1. Interacting with my daughter Madison. That girl is something else! Last night we bought tickets to see The Lion King while we are in London, and she lobbied HARD for the primo seats. We ended up center stage, row 8. Can't wait!

2. Settling in with a good book on a rainy (or cloudy or fallish-feeling or really ANY) day. Right now I'm reading Before You Know Kindness by Chris Bohjalian and I'm enjoying it. Couldn't put it down last night to get to bed, in fact!

3. Going to a live sporting event. It can be my beloved St. Louis Cardinals or my favorite college football team, the USC Trojans (boo, on the road AGAIN this weekend), or even a Lakers preseason game like I'm going to tonight, but put me at a live sporting event and I am happy!

4. Traveling. Anywhere. Madison and I are going to London the end of November and we are super excited. I have the "travel bug" for sure. Put me on a plane and I'm happy.

5. Learning. The classes I'm taking right now, at USC, are amazing. That doesn't even begin to describe them; this is fast becoming the best academic experience of my career.

6. Finding a new treasure. That book I've been wanting to complete my collection. Or the saucer I've been missing from my 1940's collection of Homer Laughlin dishes. The internet has certainly changed my collecting habits, but wandering around shops -- that makes me happy!
