Harlem Globetrotters

Last night, we taped a televised game of the Harlem Globetrotters. I have not seen them perform in several years. My son actually told me the game would be on last night. Tonight we all sat down together to watch it. Here are a few of my favorite things:

1. a pleasant way to spend time together

2. a fun show

3. entertaining players

4. watching the audience reactions

5. seeing all the little kids that got to participate

6. seeing some great basketball fundamentals

7. seeing the kids appreciate the good basketball skills

8. my son telling me about some of the old players he's read about

9. hearing about a more recent former player who is pretty hot in the NBA right now

10. pure silliness!

Chinese food

I am not real crazy about Chinese food. I never have been. But when my sister moved to Asia, we were able to visit. Since then we have been to visit several times and each time learn to like the food more. Last night, my husband suggested we go out for Chinese. My daughter and I were a bit skeptical, as we don't really enjoy American Chinese food (well, she doesn't like any of it...) But we did anyway. Here are a few of my favorite things:

1. it smelled good when we walked in

2. nice decorations

3. once we got seated, our food was served very quickly

4. my meal was really good-noodles and shrimp

5. my son really enjoyed his sweet and sour pork

6. hot tea

7. my daughter even ate!

8. free dessert-orange slices

9. better than a hamburger

10. sharing our fortunes after the meal

1. staying in my pajamas

2. reading

3. napping

4. no cooking

5. no cleaning

6. no talking to anyone

7. no demands

8. quiet (I would hope!)

9. time off from everything

10. don't have to make the bed
