5 Things I Would Like To Find

I've been thinking about some things I would really, really use; and I have chosen to compile a list of those in order to share them all with you.  (because I know you are just so darn interested in such things)

1)  Jeans that fit.  I mean really fit.  Not - fit for the first hour you put them on after washing, but then get all loose in the waist and baggy in the butt.  Not - fit just fine, if you can get through that hour of not being able to breathe deeply when you first put them on after washing.  Not - fit in the hips and thighs, but are a little big in the waist - or tight in the waist.  Or fit in the waist but are a little tight around the thighs.  And most definitely NOT sit so low my crack peeks over the waistband, or sit up under my boobs like an old lady nerd! Oh... and I also do not want to spend a fortune for these jeans.

2)  Underwear that fit correctly. Without sliding down my hips so I have to find some way to discreetly pull them up.  Or slide up into the unmentionable places so I have to find some discreet way to pull them out.  This would also include finding a bra which fits well - keeping the ladies at a comfortable height and position without cutting off circulation to my torso  or leaving dents in my shoulders.

**and yes,seeing it written out like that worries me that perhaps the lower part of my body is oddly sized or shaped - but that is perhaps fodder for another post in the future**

3)  A good (and simple) bread recipe.  Like one of those 5 minute prep deals.  One that doesn't take hours and hours to prepare, or the arm strength of a Scandinavian wrestler to knead as required.

4)  Time to sit down and really get lost in a good book.  A whole afternoon would be nice.  Or even just a few hours.  No interruptions.  Not right at bedtime as I'm falling asleep like usual.  Maybe somewhere warm and sunny (but in the shade).  Just me, a book, and some peace and quiet.  Of course, if I had this time I would probably just end up using it for one of the other many things I wish I had time for as stated in my recent post: Not Enough Hours

5)  Scissors run by some sort of motor.  Seriously... I think I am getting carpal tunnel from these darn pinking shears!

I don't really think I'm asking too much here.  Just a few simple things that would make my life just that much easier and more comfortable.

What is something YOU would really like to find?


  1. I'm with you on all the above except for the scissors, that's just you LOL. While I can't help you with the jeans, underwear, or bra, a small investment in a bread machine has been some of the best money I have ever spent. You dump the ingredients in order, set it and walk away. In a few hours (why do you care how long it takes, let it just gingerly churn away while you, for example, read) your whole house smells so yeasty and nice.... Tough the bread thing has been known to exacerbate the lower body thing, so you maybe a bread machine might not be such a good idea ;)

    What I would really like to find is an organizer that keeps track of my delays, you know, like the GPS does when you take a detour, automatically recalculating the route and the amount it takes you to get to where you're going? Even though I make every effort to stick to a rigid time schedule to get stuff done, inevitably, I get sidetracked with a phone call, something I'm writing, or any unexpected addition to my daily schedule, then the rest of my day gets out of whack. And I would love to have it automatically be put back on track. So if someone knows of an app that does that, or comes up with one, it would really, really help me out.

    1. Oh no.. I would blow that app up in a day! LOL

      I actually do have a bread machine. The bread I get is ok, but I haven't been able to quite get it just right for some reason. Maybe more practice?

    2. We love one of the recipes that came with the machine's manual. If you try it out, let me know (would like an outsider's opinion, just in case we have really sub-par taste buds):

  2. I want all of those things. Especially the jeans. For the love of all that is denim, I want good jeans.

    I have an answer for the bread, actually (although I agree with Megan that a bread machine is not a bad option). I have the cookbook Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a day. I know it sounds melodramatic, but I really mean it when I say it's changed my life. It is SO. EASY. We've been making all of our own bread products since getting that book. Healthy, yummy, and--again--SO. EASY.

    1. Thank you!! I have looked at the book on B& and just couldn't decide if it was worth purchasing. I think you've talked me inot it!


Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the blogdom! I love hearing what you have to say; so please take a moment to share your thoughts. Have a blessed day!
