Something new and different: my Friday top ten.

10. Having a lovely neighbor come round for dinner- where we talk, nosh on platters of grilled steak, crisp cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, drink iced grapefruit soda and then, in the deep dark of a city night that is punctuated by streetlamps and twinkle lights on people's porches-- we take the dogs for a late evening stroll down to Brown stadium where we let them off leash to explore the wet grass.

6. I knew that the only way out was through. With my family and friends beside me, I would make it.

4. The fact that Henry is such a private pooper that more often than not, he buries himself so deeply into a bush or hedge to do his business that there is no way I could find what he left if I tried -- so that's one less 'keep our city clean' pick up for me. And, that Daisy is such a neatnik and makes it easy for me-- my concern about living in the city with dogs and dealing with poop has, so far, been a non-issue.

1. At the checkout in Whole Foods yesterday, the very cute 20something cashier asks me with a smile, "Miss, would you like a copy of your receipt?"

Really, miss? not ma'am?-- ohhhhh-- why, yes-- yes, I would.

Bisous, E


  1. This is such a delicious list...I will have to revisit to watch the video, I am on my way out of town for the night, but will return tomorrow. Now I have something to look forward to! And also...MISS? Really? I haven't heard that myself in YEARS. So. Jealous. (From: I hate Ma'am...)
