A powerful hot shower. Good dark chocolate. Reading about history. Stimulating conversation.

....Where are the simple joys of maidenhood?
Where are all those adoring daring boys?
Where's the knight pining so for me
he leaps to death in woe for me?
Oh where are a maiden's simple joys?

Shan't I have the normal life a maiden should?
Shall I never be rescued in the wood?
Shall two knights never tilt for me
and let their blood be spilt for me?
Oh where are the simple joys of maidenhood?

Shall I not be on a pedestal,
Worshipped and competed for?
Not be carried off, or better st'll,
Cause a little war?
Where are the simple joys of maidenhood?

Are those sweet, gentle pleasures gone for good?
Shall a feud not begin for me?
Shall kith not kill their kin for me?
Oh where are the trivial joys?
Harmless, convivial joys?
Where are the simple joys of maidenhood?.......

I enjoy wandering around. Pointing my car in a direction and driving to explore an area. Or just walking around.

Walking my 7 year old son to school in the morning.
It's simple, but I really do treasure those 10 mins of idle chit chat during the walk when it's just me and him.

Before covid I would leave the house to go to work at 7:30am when the kids are eating breakfast. And I won't be home until 7:30pm when the kids are eating dinner. sad smiley

Ice cold Diet Coke, preferably from a can, but fountain can work (not all fountains make good DC)

Ha!

It was a very Apple Christmas here... three iPhone 12s, mini 12 and 2 M1 MBAs (space gray and silver).

Riding my bike (motorbike).

Time at the range (very Zen for me)

Driving and listening to music.

Reading/listening to a book.

Watching TV/movies

Shooting the breeze with a friend or two.

Napping in the chaise with a little sun, a little shade, a warm breeze, and cold lemonade

Ice cream





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

Listening to my wife snoring softly beside me at night.

Holding my 4-month-old granddaughter while she sleeps.
Laughing, talking, goofing with her while she makes pre-speech baby talk back.

Watching anime. Holding our cats (that allow it).

Walk around the neighborhood.

Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

A banana.
A slice of really good pizza.
Listening to a great song on repeat.
Playing a stupid game on my phone with one of the cats sleeping on my lap.
Turning off everything and laying in the dark listening to a thunder storm.

And lately? A big bowl of my macaroni tuna salad. Can’t get enough lately.

Feeling the warm sun on my face on a cold day.

Being able to finish a big container of yogurt; it means I don't need to dirty a separate container and I can use a big spatula to reach all way to the bottom.

You will always treasure this. As will he. The one positive result of something like Covid.

I get that.

I feel the same way when I smell Kester 60/40, Hoppes No. 9, or Castrol 2T.

Walking along the East River with my camera. Up to 35th to the ferry landing, maybe looping up to where the esplanade ends around 41st. I can take a ferry from there to LIC or Roosevelt Island or up to 90th, where I saw a heron not long ago. Or I can take a downtown ferry to Greenpoint or Dumbo or Wall Street. Nice views of the city from any of the stops on that side of the river. If I walk downtown, I usually go down to Corlears Hook. Unfortunately that ferry route was changed this year, so I can no longer get back on the ferry from there without getting one to Wall St. and switching to a different ferry line. I've enjoyed walking or cycling along the river for many years, but this year it has been especially important as a safe haven for fresh air and exercise.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals
