Does tagged mean send 10 things I love? If so, here goes:
1. dogs; all kinds. Mine is a flashy fawn bitch boxer. I love the formal description as much as I love the beauty and strength and showiness of her..
2.ENDS store in Toronto, in the Beach and a few other places. this weekend they had great brand name down ski jacket for $49.00 in lime green. Hard to pass up.
3. Costco: I get very acceptable cashmere sweaters there ($49.00) and some fine merino wool v.necks ($20.00) in lovely colours. Also great for jeans and cheaper dress pants.
4.Socks with Sandals; As long as the socks are more or less the same colour as the sandals, at the very least not white, I wear my walking sandals for my hopeful attempts at 10K steps per day as long into November as I can without getting wet toes.
5. Body Blitz Spa in Toronto: heaven
6.Tea with milk, lots of milk: cardamon black tea bought from Indian stores. Several cups every morning and at 4 pm.
7. Psychotherapy: as Fritz Perls said, therapy is too good to save for the sick.
8. My new kitchen; I should have renovated years ago
9. My gorgeous 86 year old mother who still turns heads and loves a party. I love giving her pedicures and having special time with her.
10. My wonderful women friends.

Ok, so the socks are only so that I can keep my feet warm in November. The real attraction is the wonderful footbed of my surf-tide Columbia sandals that walk me anywhere, even into the canoe. I admit I look geeky in them. But really, they are only for walking the dog. Honest. Can I get a pass?

sjcyogi: Tagging means you are requested to fill in the Ten Things (and one extra) as I did in the post. But no worries, your "ten things you love" is an excellent meme too!

The socks, the socks: in your heart you know the truth. What is the sound of one sock dropping?
