Ten for Tuesday: Things I Love

Woo! It's Tuesday, and I'm actually going out for dinner tonight at Somerset House on the South Bank to celebrate my and Mr TR's kissaversary.

So, here are ten things I love!

1. Tumblr. It's my new addiction.

2. Twitter. I've met so many great people in there!

3. Twizzlers. Red ones. Yum!

4. Mr TR. Enough said. :)

5. Newsletters. (Ha! I slipped this one in there just to say, if anyone would like to sign up for my fun-filled newsletter, you can do so here, or on the sidebar. I do love newsletters, though!)

6. Salt and vinegar crisps. My mouth is watering now just thinking about it.

7. My brand new Kindle! Just arrived today!

8. The smell of freshly bought clothing. Pure starchy goodness.

9. Bread. Any kind, anywhere. Just gimme some bread.

10. Raspberries. Mashed up with Chantilly cream and lots of sugar, over a sponge cake.

Gosh, I'm starving now!

What are your loves?

  1. Lying in bed, reading and waiting for the sweet-patootie to bring me coffee, dreaming about my mother, going on a road trip with my best pal, digging in the garden, going to get our new day-old chicks, writing tuesdays with my writing buddy, inventing games with my grandkids, going to the market with my step-dot, learning to do something hard and weird (play the accordion, knit socks), eating curry that the man makes. that's ten!

  4. Congrats on the Twizzlers! Yay for Mr. TR - clearly a lucky guy! Love the Kindle (when I'm not reading a paperback that is). Twizzlers rock - especially the red ones)!

    I saw Tumblr was your new addiction! Still trying to decide if I'm willing to take the plunge. Still trying to just maintain twitter!

  9. I'm happy to hear you like bread (of any kind) yet. No one will ever admit to liking bread these days. Wonder why that is, carbs???
    Congrats on your kissaversary.

  14. I love bread too, though I try to eat only the super high fiber kind. :(

    Watching my kittens sleep all curled up in a ball. Snuggling with the kittens in bed at night, when the boy becomes lovey-dovey.

  16. salt and vinegar chips are delish. But you know what's even better? Salt and vinegar chicken wings!! oh man, i'm salivating just thinking about them...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ha ha Have yet to try Tumbir - but almost worried to. There's always something new to try, isn't there?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love the smell of fresh bread too! The holidays bring pumpkin and pumpernickel smells that fill the house.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am currently having a love affair with my rice cooker. It makes me food and then sings to me when it is done. What's not to love?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm still trying to get up the nerve to tweet and now there's tumbling (tumblring) too?

    Happy kissaversary, have a lovely meal tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like your list--you know how to enjoy life, Talli!

    Mr. TR is only number four?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks, everyone! Oh, I'm loving reading such wonderful lists of things. You'll be happy to hear I just had HONKING piece of focaccia with red onion and chevre. Um um good!

    Tumblr is a microblogging thing. Kind of like Twitter, but on a blog. It's really easy to share things and reblog. And it's so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  23. ive never heard of tumblr, i'll have to check it out, although i'm not a twitterer so not sure it would be for me..

    ReplyDelete
  24. All these writers and their tumblrs. I don't get it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a cute post! I love a clean car and a fresh cup of coffee, with all the teeny little bubbles on top. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congrats on getting your new Kindle!

    I agree--nothing like the smell of freshly bought clothing & new bread.

    However, one of the best smells of all is that of a new car!

  27. Ooh, love Somerset House, enjoy!

  31. Ooh, raspberries sound heavenly! Right now I'm obsessed with the song This Night by Black Lab. If you haven't heard of it already, I recommend it. A lot.

  32. Hope you both have a splendid evening tonight.

    I love my Kindle and can't believe I was ever unsure about wanting one.

    No 10 is so delicious, I could eat that right now.

    ReplyDelete
  33. JUst to show my ignorance, what's Tumblr???

    ReplyDelete
  34. Woooo, congratulations on the kindle! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a wonderful list! I love raspberries too...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Raspberries mixed with apple sauce and a dab of sour cream dusted with icing sugar!
    Mashed potatoes with bits of chopped parsley dotted with browned butter drizzle.
    Now I'm starving! lol
    Have fun tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sleep! Right now, I wish I were sleeping instead of doing the editing I should be doing right now instead of blog hopping... Yes, I'm procrastinating a little.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great list! Now may I ask why Mr TR is no 4? LOL...

    Haven't been able to get into Tumblr but Twitter is cool. Enjoy your Kindle too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I do like Twizzlers, especially because I don't feel as guilty eating them as I do when I eat M&Ms. I've actually considered signing up for Twitter, because I finally upgraded my cell phone and could send out Tweets if I wanted to. I'm not sure what I would Tweet about, though.

    ReplyDelete
  40. mmmmm twizzlers! AND I just started tumbling, so tumblr is definitely on my list! (I also followed your tumblr, I LOVE the picture you have up right now!)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, man, you had me with bread. And all the other stuff too! Tumblr is the hardest for me, though. I don't really get the point, especially since everything feeds to twitter. But I do use it for videos, and that's why I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Awww a kissaversary! You're so cute. XD
    My loves: my husband, cats... oh gotta love the salt and vinegar crisps! Mmm.... Let's see, oh! I love the bagpipes. Stirs my Scottish blood! Good music, good books, good movies...
    I love a lot, what can I say? Enjoy tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love....desk. I love...carpet....
    I love lamp.

    Sorry, couldn't resist :P

    Right now, I love apples and LEGO. We get free fruit at work so I'm ODing on apples, plus I was bought a Lego set a few days back so I've reconnected with my inner child, hehe.

  44. Darn it all but now I'm hungry too. I'm not sure what tumblr is exactly.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love the idea of a kissaversary - that's awesome!! Enjoy :)

    I love so many things on your list too - especially those raspberries!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love so many things on your list. Bread, raspberries, and salt & vinegar crisps for sure, yum! I've been avoiding Tumbler as I don't need any more addictions.

    Signing up for the newsletter now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Happy Kissaversary! I love that you not only know the date, you go out to celebrate!

    I love coffee, my laptop, and quite time before anyone else is awake. Ahhh...

    ReplyDelete
  48. For a moment I thought you were going with a "T" theme there. Then you got me with Newsletters. So you're not still blogging the alphabet after all.

    Was completely won over by my sister's Kindle at Easter and will have to get one too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Have a great night out! Your top 10things are making me hungry now too! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I like this list. Twitter: I've got to figure this one out. I know there are a lot of friends to make and lots of interesting links on it.

    I love my Kindle, too. I think you'll like yours, too. It's great for reading novels. I'll definitely let you know when my memoir's out in eBook. It should be out by the end of the month, says my publisher. I'm excited to have you read it. I think it'll be different than anything else you've read, and I'll look forward to your response.

    You know how exciting this all is! It IS a lot of work just to get to the launching point. And then there's promotion. And then there's writing another book. I might have one more in me. You, being much younger, should have many. Just do it!

    And I'm signing up for your "fun" newsletter. I need to learn how to relax and read/do something fun.

    Cheers!
