I wish I could tell you I've had nine lovers, but I married young and have been admirably faithful.
So here are nine other things I love:
My children. Two daughters and a son, all above average.
My grandchildren. Three girls and a boy due to arrive in less than a month.
Baking. I make a dynamite cheesecake, but cookies don't always turn out.
Cooking. Feeding people good food.
CSA gardening. Feeding people good food.
A pantry full of canned goods and a freezer full of veggies.
White Collar (but the new season better have good plots.)
Old episodes of Dr. Who.
Romance movies and books.
