The Joy List

The Professor tagged me for this fun meme ~ simply shelling out 10 things I enjoy (aside from reading blogs. :) Here we go....

Numero Uno:

The scent of Lilacs after a spring rain.

This dorky dog.


The Perfect Horse

& The Problem Horse





My daughter's company.
She's in Paris, right now, enjoying the lovely flowers of Jardins des Tuileries. (We should all be this lucky!)


Winter ~ yep ~ as surprising as that may sound ~ this gardener enjoys winter as much, maybe more so, than summer.


~~~~~ Quiet Time ~~~~~
So I can hear myself think.

Radiolab! If you haven't discovered these free podcasts go grab one right now! Start with 'The Luckiest Lobster' and you'll be hooked. For life.

Opera. 
Turandot is my fave.


Traveling to pretty much anywhere.










And, there you have it! Easy Peasy. Passing this meme along to 10 more victims:

Hi Kate - I just got caught up with your last few post. Very Nice! You made even the expiring mum look artistic! Your daughter looks lovely. I will have to try RadioLab, never heard about it...we are to be warm all week and I hope to get some digging done. I should be done with all this changing, but I keep getting ideas, hugs, Gloria

Those are definitely good choices. Joy is important, and you have wonderful reasons to be joyful.

Hi Kate, Enjoy your post very much. I was a victim too...Your photos are excellent! I especially like the flowers and the dog photo. Of course your daughter is very pretty too. Glad to know you a little better.

Hi Kate, Thanks for tagging me! Ima do it, too, but not at all in a timely fashion, lol. Btw, that is *the best dog photo ever.* Your daughter is indeed lucky. Opera?! Well, we can still be friends. HA!

Kate said...

Hi, Garden of Threads and Lesley!
Thanks to both of you. :) That's probably why I like winter so much. Lots of pretty snow and the days are not too cold.

Definitely, check out Radiolab, Gloria, I think you'd really enjoy it!

Thx, Jodi;
This was a fun meme - and an easy one for a change. ;)

Hi, One;
I'll scoot over and view your 'Joy' list Will be nice to get to know you a little better, too!

Hi, Joy!
Weeee... our favorite holiday is almost upon us. I need to trick out the blog..

Hey, Monica;
We have my photographer friend, Karen, to thank for that fab photo. She took the fab horsey photos, too. :)

Melanie said...

A nice simple list Kate. That lilac is beautiful and so is your daughter.

Meredehuit ♥ said...

Oh that looks fun! Thanks for the invite. I just put up a new post... is there a time limit?

Jennifer@threedogsinagarden said...

Great list! I like the dog photo. Priceless! I love radio too and have discovered the joy of podcasts, though in my case through the CBC: CBC.http://www.cbc.ca/podcasting/index.html?arts
I have been to Paris a few times. I bet your daughter is having a great time! Thanks for sharing. Jennifer

Grace Peterson said...

It's always good to think about the things that bring us joy. Great post.

Kate said...

Hi, Melanie;
L will be thrilled to hear she ranks right up there with that gorgeous lilac tee hee.

I think you can set your own timetable, Meredehuit. It's just meant for whenever...

Hi, Jennifer;
Oh, I am so jealous of my daughter! Paris in autumn! It doesn't get any better than that.

Thx, Grace;
We'll need to get you in on this meme, too.

Rose said...

Great choices, Kate; the photos made me happy, too, just looking at them. Your daughter is lovely, and it looks like she's having a great time--but who wouldn't in Paris?! Your photo of your dog is my favorite of all; now who could call him a Bad Dog?:)

Kate said...

Oh, he deserves the Bad Dog name, Rose. Trust me. But, if you don't believe me just ask my neighbors. :D

Snowcatcher said...

All fun, but that dorky dog picture... that just takes the cake! I had never heard of RadioLab. I wonder if it's something I can get away with at work... :)

Diana (Di) said...

Hello dear Kate, hope all is well in high country. Love your loves including that gorgeous daughter. Enjoy your weekend!

joey said...
