seven things (vol. 2)

1. never fails to make my day.

2. kellog’s cocoa frosties. chocolate is comfort food. breakfast is, to me, comfort meal. so putting both chocolate and breakfast together is very comfortable indeed. and i eat them without milk.

3. newbery medal winning stories. it sometimes strikes me as ironic how i developed a liking for children’s literature already rather late in life. i’m not sure how it happened, but i’m certain it had something to do with from the mixed up files of mrs. basil e. frankweiler. i was so taken by the story, i instantly became an e.l. konigsburg fan. i still am to this day. and every night i look forward to lying in bed, reading these books until my eyes get heavy and the last images i carry before closing my eyes are young people in adventurous situations.

4. health care. i can’t even begin to say how extremely important this is. most people take it for granted, but, having been a recipient of its many benefits in the past, i declare that we should all get health care. preferably comprehensive, including outpatient and dental. let’s not wait for something drastic to happen before we even consider getting ourselves covered.

5. wide leg pants. while all the ladies these days force themselves into the confines of skinny jeans, i remain a staunch patron of wide leg pants. whether they be jeans or dress slacks. in no other type of garment can you get roomy comfort without sacrificing form. you still get the lean silhouette, and paired with heels, it makes your legs look as if they go on forever.

6. internet,  7. blog. i may not lead the most interesting life to merit a fabulous personal blog. neither do i have superb skills in writing to make it worth reading. but the very idea of having a blog (thanks of course to the modern age’s greatest invention, the internet!), casting your ideas into open space has huge cathartic effect. though i still would not trade the intimacy and historical depth of a pen-and-paper journal, blogging makes me happy nonetheless. 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my son’s homeschooling blog. When my husband started to consider homeschooling, what we found most useful was Jon’s Homeschool Resources. It wasn’t the most organized website then, still isn’t now, but it had the best and most comprehensive HS info I’d ever come across in the internet. You might want to start from there. If you have any specific question, please just email me (at the add. above) or just leave another comment at my son’s blog. 😉

    I love children’s lit. I love Enid Blyton stories. I have been looking for it for several years now.
