Another Things I Love Wednesday

See! For some reason today, not Thursday, is when it always strikes me to do this. Another New Year resolution is to actually keep this up,  it's always a good idea to take time to focus on the positives, regardless of what else is going on.

Things I love this Wednesday:

Irish coffee with Jameson's, so yummy and warm it's almost worth  being outside in the cold for the joy of having it afterwards * snow * chocolate * eating candy out of wine glasses * the Voodoo and Hoodoo infused tunes of Dr. John * my interview in the Amplifier * cashmere * mittens * my rabbit hat, ears and all * making collages * the creepy doll and carriage Bertena Varney gave me * not having to be at work until 10 am again! Thank you holiday's for being great, but also for ending * walks when it's cold but bright and sunshiny out * the new blog I've designed with my son, Charlie's Books * telescopes * the castle blocks Santa brought Charlie * shea butter & Moroccan oil - they've given me totally new skin & hair (in their concentrated forms, not products simply containing them *  hula hoops & slinky's * starting a new year! *

Thanks to Gala Darling for this amazing idea!
