Monday Listicles

They say there is a little kid in us all.

Must be true, because it seemed very easy for us all to list ten things that are great about childhood. I was all giddy reading about how great our kids have it and reminiscing about good old carefree days. Thank you all for joining the Listicles, I am excited to read more from you this week.

In case you missed it, Terri chose the topic for us this time around and it is a breeze. Just list ten things/people/services that make your lives easier. Terri promised us a photo of her rice cooker. Warning: anyone listing cleaning services that come once a week to tidy up your house should do so at their own risk. The good life blog will not offer any sympathy or emotional support when jealousy occurs.

Next is Miss Marina Star’s turn to choose what we should write about. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find her among this week’s listicles and see what topic she would like us to write on. Quick directions: follow the star, click and you will find Marina, a funny mom of two, a pretty wife of one and a woman that saves lives at night. Also a great writer. Practically a superhero.

But first, a list of things that make our lives a breeze.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!


10 things/people/services that make my life easier

1. My dog

I go most days without my son doing anything the first time he is asked. That is when I look at my dog and say sit. And he does.
Grumpy face
2. My Apples

Thanks to Steve Jobs I have my private orchard. That makes having five a day very easy. Talk about healthy.

3. Amazon

Because everything I ever buy is just a click and an overnight delivery away.


It entertained me as a child, it entertains my child, it entertains me as an adult. LOVE LEGO!

5. My espresso machine

I refuse to ever live without one again. Thank you Mia for letting Santa know I must own one!

6. Our toothbrushes

My son got his Sonic Toothbrush when he turned 4 and we now brush our teeth together. Two minutes twice a day is fun in my house.

7. Tools of my trade

I used to try on my shoes to cheer me up. Now I unpack my camera bag and try on my lenses.

8. My son’s preschool

3 times a week my boy goes to the super fun place so I can ride and do my own thing. It means so much to us both.

9. Vizon

He is an Arabian show horse. But look:
Little J and Vizon
Thank you Danielle for training Vizon and Nola for teaching my son.

10. You lot

My Listicles crowd makes me look forward to Mondays!
