Five Things I Can’t Live Without….
On a deserted island
  1. A machete to open coconuts.
  2. Sunscreen. My fair skin doesn’t get along so well with most deserted islands.
  3. Building manual. The Swiss Family Robinson would have exiled me because I do not know how to build a functional island homestead that will withstand the weather, pirates, and stomach shakiness resulting from all those coconuts I cut open with my machete.
  4. Treasure chest filled with books. I will slash the lock with my machete.
  5. A cheese plate.
In my purse
  1. iPhone.
  2. Pad and pen.
  3. Lip balm.
  4. Sunglasses.
  5. Snacks, usually a baggie of raw almonds because I get mean when I get hungry and I get hungry a lot and raw almonds seem to do the trick.
In my wardrobe
  1. Fleece. Fleece sweatshirts, fleece pj pants. I like to be warm and cozy.
  2. Sweatpants. My “work” outfit.
  3. Party dresses. Because of #2, when I do go out, I like to dress up.
  4. Cozy sweaters.
  5. Lululemon Run Swiftly Tech long sleeve crew neck shirts. These are the most comfortable tops and I wear one almost every day with my fleece sweatshirt and sweatpants. Not with my party dresses.
In my library
  1. All of Jane Austen’s books
  2. All of Jeffrey Archer’s books
  3. My towering piles of waiting-to-be-read books.
  4. The hundreds of other books that I can’t part with because having them around makes me so happy and they inspire me when writer’s block sets in.
  5. A cozy chair, a blanket, quiet, English Breakfast tea, and snacks (not raw almonds).
In my pantry
  1. Dark chocolate. Really dark.
  2. English Breakfast tea.
  3. Bananas and almond butter for smoothies.
  4. Olives and feta cheese. I put these on everything.
  5. And how about a cheese plate. I’ve never met one I didn’t like.
