Can You Guess What I'm Loving Right Now?

My sweet friend, Teresha over at Marlie and Me, invites us to share what we are loving this Thursday. I thought it would be fun to give my top 10 one word "loving things" this Thursday. Can you guess what I'm thinking about with each word? I'll clue you in at the end of the post.

  1. Bookmarks
  2. E-mail
  3. Calculators
  4. Chips
  5. Sunshine
  6. Color
  7. Jokes
  8. Paths
  9. Gordon
  10. Hugh
Okay, have you figured out my thinking on this Thursday? Here's my never to be patented Kelly logic for my list:

1. Bookmarks: I'm reading again!

2. E-mail: My chance to talk to other adults when the kids are busy.

3. Calculators: I think my brain can no longer handle basic math.

4. Chips: You say "potato"; I say "CHOCOLATE."

5. Sunshine: Please stay with us here in NY a little longer.

6. Color: Love all the colorful brushstrokes in the prints that surround me.

7. Jokes: We are like an improv group up at the bus stop.

8. Paths: I'm very grateful for any ice-free path on my driveway.

9. Gordon: I'm enjoying watching BBC's show on Ramsey's best restaurant search.

10. Hugh: Are you excited? Hugh Jackman is on Oprah today. DVR is ready.

One more thing that I'm loving on this Thursday. I have a new photographer (Ryan from ArborView) over at Write With Pictures who is sharing his amazing photos to inspire the writer in each of you. If you have a moment, please drop by my little writing blog and welcome Ryan with a haiku or two.

Thanks again Teresha for this fun weekly meme! Give Marlie a hug for me :)

Caroline said...

Gerri said...

You had me at chocolate chips...

shabby girl said...

Hahaha! Love #4!!! And I totally get the math thing! I'm afraid there will be a test somewhere along the line & I'll have to admit that I have no brain cells left. :#

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Wonderful list and varied, loved the read.

Chips was my favorite. For a second I actually did think chocolate knowing it was you!

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

fun list! especially the part about chocolate chips :p

H.K. said...

Never feel bad about using a calculator, my poor brains couldn't do without it my entire life! And I am so looking forward to seeing Hugh Jackman on Oprah too!

Joanne said...

If you're sharing our weather here, we're looking at 4-8 inches of fresh snowfall tomorrow :)

Life with Kaishon said...

I agree about the sunshine. Please oh please don't leave us! : )

Kim said...

I love that there are some laughs at the bus stop. It always makes times easier when laughter is involved! I missed Hugh today but I know I'll be able to catch it on reruns. We have a lot of ice too and it made it perilous to take the kids outside to play today. After fourty minutes of getting them into their snowsuits I was exhausted...can't wait til Spring! Hugs Kelly!!!

Jenners said...

I didn't say potato ... I said chocolate too!! Great minds think alike.

And I was kind of funny at the bus stop the other day ... made the other moms laugh. Too bad it was at my expense!!!! (I did something really stupid but amusing.)

The Write Girl said...

I knew exactly where you were going with Hugh lol. I hear he has a triumphant/near accidental entrance on Oprah. Also, some more sun in NY would be nice. Love the humor as always.

Michelle said...

I got the bookmarks one, but that was as good as I got ;) I'm jealous of your sun. There's none of that by us, although given how cold it's supposed to be tomorrow, maybe we'll finally see it? Bleh!

Help! Mama Remote... said...

OH!!!!I'm so glad I'm not the only one in need of a calculator. I was helping my son the other day with homework & I think my brain shut down.

Valerie said...

I can associate with No.5. Sunshine! If the sun wasn't shining the below zero temperatures would be intolerable. Guess I won't feel warm again until I put the weight back on.....

Christy said...

Glad you are loving things this Thursday....I, too, love chocolate chips. :)

I hope you have a good weekend as well.

Monica said...

yay to ~1
chuckling at #4 (and SO with you)

He & Me + 3 said...

Love your list. this is a great idea. I would take the chips over the chocolate...crazy huh?

Learn, Laugh, Cook said...

AAAHHH! I can't believe I missed Hugh Jackman on Oprah! I sure wish I would have read your post before the show! Dang! You should post a clip of him in your next post!

Loved your list and getting a glimpse into your week!
