As I sit down to write this morning, Janet works her way around my floors picking up dirt, dust, and dog hair. And there is certainly a lot of dog hair! Janet isn’t actually a person, although we’ve named her as one. She is, however, one of my favorite things. Janet is our robotic vacuum and if you’ve ever watched The Good Place on Netflix you’ll make the connection with the name. (ha ha) We decided to take the leap to purchasing a robotic vacuum in November when trying to keep up with the never-ending shedding of our one year-old lab, Daisy, became too overwhelming. I’ve never looked back since. Janet has been a very welcome addition to our home and finally, the dog hair is manageable without my having to spend hours cleaning. Yay! 🙂
But Janet is just one of my many favorite things. Spending time with my family definitely tops that list but then there are the long walks in the woods – we love to explore, campfires in the summertime, music, quiet romantic dinners with the husband when the kids are otherwise occupied, tasty chocolate treats, reading or writing stories, doing Mad Libs (I’m silly, I know), laughing, listening to music…
And guinea pigs! What would life be without a guinea pig? Or six? Yes, our family owns six of the furry little creatures. I suppose guinea pigs are sort of like potato chips – you simply can’t have just one.
I love taking pictures of flowers, which you already know if you follow me on Instagram, and although I may not be the world’s best dancer, dancing makes the list, too, even if I’m only dancing in my living room these days.
Last but not least, I love my kindle. I couldn’t pass a day without it. I know, I know, many you you believe that there is no substitute for real books and I agree there is something magical about flipping the pages but how can you not appreciate being able to carry an entire library wherever you go? No matter what I may be in the mood to read… there it is!
Thanks for reading! I’m new to the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge but hoping to become a regular face over the coming weeks. Looking forward to sharing more.
