A goal of Megan on their 101 Things in 1001 Days list with a status of Not Started.
Walks- Long nature walks in the woods or by the shore, hiking through the wilderness, or just strolling around my neighborhood. This has been my place of peace and calm ever since I was a little girl and could spend hours and hours just wandering.

Other notes for this Goal:

Horror-- Ever since I was a little kid and it was completely forbidden, adding to the thrill every time I got to sneak some home. I love horror. I love being scared. I love old school ghost stories and retro monster movies and modern slasher stuff. I love my old 80s black paperbacks. It's not something you can really explain to someone who isn't into it. It's just plain fun.

Piano-- The most soothing and lovely music to me since I was a little girl. I love both classical and modern piano music, and it never fails to relax me and make me happy. I'm still hoping to learn how to play.

Fireworks-- I love watching fireworks. The lights, the colors, the excitement, the warm summer nights with the blue sky and the damp grass. It turns me right into a little kid again.

Spring-- Growing up in Michigan with long harsh winters, I definitely learned to appreciate spring. I love the end of the cold bleak weather and the beginning of warm breezes, fresh air, open windows, everything sprouting up green and coming into flower.

Cooking-- I love how sensory it is, the sound of things steaming and sizzling and chopping, the colors of fresh ingredients, the feel of them under my hands, the look of the ingredients being transformed, and of course the taste. I love unwinding with Ella Fitzgerald on and my cute apron on and a glass of wine or beer in my hand while I cook.

Forests-- I grew up next to a nature preserve and my entire childhood was filled with exploring the woods, with hunting for mushrooms and berries and bugs and learning to identify leaves and wildflowers, imagining myself in a hundred different fantasy novels. It's still the place that brings me the greatest calm and peace.

Baking-- The feel of kneading fresh dough, the smell of fresh bread or cookies in the oven, and of course tasty goodies when I'm done. One of my fave weekend activities.

Baths-- Soaking and relaxing in the fragrant hot water, with lots of bubbles or a fizzy bomb in a luscious scent. I love reading and listening to books or music in the tub.

Getting a real letter in the mail.

Autumn-- my favorite season of colorful leaves, crisp air, misty mornings, apple and pumpkin picking, and chilly nights with a cozy blanket and mug of tea and thick book.

Rain-- Refreshing summer rain with the fresh green smell afterward, chilly autumn rain while you're warm inside, the look of it outside and the sound against the window while you're curled up with tea and a good book. My favorite kind of cozy night.

Fresh, clean sheets! Is there any better feeling than climbing into a fresh, Downy-scented bed at night after a long day?

My cats <3 Well, all cats in general really, but of course especially mine. This is Cal asleep with his tail in his mouth-- all my life I wanted an orange cat just like this, and I love him so much.
