‘I Like’ Friday – some things I like.


I was visiting my friend Annette at her lovely blog I Give You The Verbs today and she has a great post which is a list of things she likes.  So, I grabbed a cupful of inspiration and here is my list of things I like.  Appropriately on ‘I like’ Friday. Yay.

Snapea crisps in black pepper flavor – I just discovered them and they are super duper good!

Buying paints in a lovely colour palette, I went to ArtMart for Glow in the Dark paint and came out with a handful of fabulous colours.  I can’t wait to try out the Glow in the Dark!

Painting with the above!

Reading a good book, I look forward to reading every night and I am so disappointed when I find that I really am not enjoying the book in my hand. I am about to start a new book called ‘We Are Unprepared‘ so I hope it is a good one.

Libraries, I hunt out the library wherever I go!

Sunshine, it has been so gloomy here the past few days, I need some sunlight.

Drawing on the papery side of gum wrappers, this is not my thing, but my youngest has quite a collection of arted wrappers!

Estate sales, the thrill of the rummage!  In fact there is one locally tomorrow morning, so I wonder what I will find.

Freshly made coffee with frothy milk.

Sheets dried on the washing line – hanging washing outside is frowned upon here (not sure if it an American thing) but I rebel and out it goes!

Baking cakes  –  baking is kitchen magic and usually with a delicious result to share.

Getting into bed at night because it is so comfy! I know I will sleep badly, I always do, but I love my bed anyway.

People who are nice.  Someone told me today that I looked like a young(er) Jane Goodall.  I’ll take it!

Anyone who makes anything creative then shares and is willing to tell how they did it. I learn so much from generous artists who share their processes.

Unlike Annette who I viciously stole this idea from, I like odd numbers, I will take 7 or 11 over 10  any day!!

What do you like?  Let me know in the comments!

Happy Friday x

I live in St Louis, MO, but I am originally from Lincoln, Great Britain. My family and I have lived in the Mid West for over 15 years now. My blog is www.catseatdogs.com where I blog and chat about all kinds of creative stuff.


  1. What a great list…we’ve also been missing sunshine recently and I definitely need it too! …as well as drying sheets outside, they have such a wonderful smell when dry (providing someone close doesn’t light a bonfire!)
    Have you got a specific project for your glow in the dark paints Clare?

  2. Well, I like this post! Very much. It’s lovely and inspiring and I might have to viscously steal it from both of you and do one myself as it has such a lovely feel to it. I also like the sound of your glow in the dark paints, these sound fab. I hope you can sort out your sleeping issue – I have slept badly all summer and it is terrible! I want to work on improving my sleep quality. I actually like most of the things on your list too. Thanks for sharing this feel-good post! xx
