Five by five

It's very hazardous to catch up on blog-reading, because that's when you learn you've been tagged again.

Name five of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick five people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not use things that someone else has already used.

I dunno about that last part, but here's my crack at it:

1. Lying on a beach on a dazzlingly sunny day (Vancouver or Bali preferred, though other suggestions are welcome). Bonus points if the view includes mountains (see Vancouver).

2. Lying on my couch with a good book.

3. Crunching into a crisp-from-the-fridge KitKat on a hot tropical afternoon.

4. Savouring a beautiful work of art (not necessarily art per se --- music, performance and literature also qualify, so I suppose I should clarify that my second point above refers more to the experience of sinking into our couch to read, as opposed to whatever it is I'm reading).

5. Wandering the streets of a city, any city.

I'll leave you all to tag yourself, since this is short enough as memes go.

So I'm guessing you spent those five wintry years in Vancouver...Curious minds want to know!

Does Vancouver get that many sunny days? I was under the impression it was one of the damper more drizzly cities in Canada... bit like Seattle.

Otherwise, I'd tag myself but I'm a bit off memes. Here's my five, on your site, because my list is quite similar to yours!

1. jumping into a lake in the middle of the wilderness (Southern Ontario Kawartha's cottage country counts)

2. staying in bed all day with a good book/good series of movies to watch/my husband while we tell bad jokes to each other (that's really the total best!)

3. watching a match live (football, american football, hockey, tennis... etc.)

4. drinking with a handful of good friends till 5 in the morning, with intermittent sessions of jumping up and down

5. wandering in the forest/mountains, for no reason at all.

Dot > Actually, no :)

Nardac > Vancouver's pretty wet, but I guess my memory's skewed towards those sunny days on the beach.
