10 Things I Love

My friend over at gawgus-things has set me the challenge of naming ten things that I love.  I actually find these quite hard to do, as I did with my 5 indulgences.  There are so many things that I love, but when asked to actually name them, my mind seems to go a complete blank!

Talking about gawgus-things, do go over and check out her Blog.  She writes about gorgeous things in her life and her fashion sense is excellent.  Personally, I feel that she should be researching and writing for a Fashion Magazine.
Come on now, thisisme, you're just rambling on to try and put off the challenge that you have been set!  (Ten is quite a lot to have to come up with, by the way).

1.  I love quotations, inspirational sayings etc.  They could be lines from a film, such as from the movie I love, Now Voyager, when Bette Davis says "Oh Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon.  We have the stars." (you will gather that I am an incurable romantic!).
Another quote that springs readily to mind is from Oscar Wilde, "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."

Here's another of my favourites :

2.  Like a lot of you, I suspect, I love the summer, when I can feel the sun on my skin and go to the beach and paddle in the sea.  (Very rarely in England is the sea actually warm enough to swim in).  I love to hear the waves gently lapping the shore and the noise of the gulls flying overhead.

Yes, this is me!

I don't want to make this particular post too long, as I know your interest will wane, so I will continue with my other loves tomorrow.  See you then dear Bloggies!

It's funny, my daughter told me tonight that her favorite quote is, "Live is not measured..." It is beautiful. I love quotes too, I have a couple of books with nothing but quotes in them. Winston Churchill made so many memorable quotes. I admire him very much. "...this was their finest hour..."

One quote I love is: Count your age by friends, not years; Count your life by smiles not tears...

That's a lovely quote, Gawgus things. Might have to borrow that one!

What a great post. And we never get tired of what you have to say. That beach scene is great. Looks comfy too! I do agree that Gawgus should be working for a fashion magazine!

Off to a good start with the first two and I am enjoying seeing all the great quotes. I will have to do a post with some of my favorites.
