Things I Like

The show, “Broadchurch”

 

Running outside in January

 

Quiet, uneventful days

 

Packing for a warm destination

 

That my kids like going to church

 

A bookcase with leather-bound books

 

Finding money when I clean my truck

 

Crab dip with capers

 

Watching kids ice skate at the Carousel

 

Leaving the office after deadline is met

 

The wildlife visible from the Life of the Marsh trail on Assateague
