Five Things I don't Leave Home Without
I've been busy the last few days and missed being tagged by Hostess (thank you, this is very exciting!!) Now I've got a list and even a few pictures together so here you are:
My watch, I've always worn one (old school). A few years ago I splurged and got myself a nice one. I have a small wrist and wear it a bit loose, so it feels like a bracelet. It will probably get scratched and worn, but I'd rather wear it than save it in a drawer.
Earings, I get a pair of studs and just wear them for years, usually until I lose one! The current silver pair are a replacement for the exact same earing in gold.
In my purse I always have a mini clothes brush. Invaluable when you have cats. More than once I've looked down at work and noticed that a bunch of hair had attached itself to my pant leg.
Kleenex, folded in a little pink leather holder from Guild Design. It was pricey, but it makes me happy when I use it. Plus if anyone asks for a tissue, it's more classy than a cellowrap.
House key - one is with my car keys, but I don't drive unless I have to go on site for a meeting. If I'm taking the TTC to work or walking the dog I have a little leather key case that holds the dog's licence so we don't get fined.
And that's my five items.
I just went to see what some others had listed and it's interesting to see the similarities.
"God does not die when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illuminated by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason."
Fear is the cheapest room in the house – I would like to see you living in better conditions. – Hafiz
Peter Kreeft quote
"Galaxies revolve and dinosaurs breed and rain falls and people fall in love and uncles smoke cheap cigars and people lose their jobs and we all die - all for our good, the finished product, God's work of art, the kingdom of heaven. There's nothing outside heaven except hell. Earth is not outside heaven; it is heaven's workshop, heaven's womb."
jeff bridges quote
"Most cynics are really crushed romantics: they've been hurt, they're sensitive, and their cynicism is a shell that's protecting this tiny, dear part in them that's still alive."
