Items 31 to 40 of Things I Like to Do

31. Drinking Tea-especially Tie Guan Ying.  It is a green tea that is popular in China and grown in Fujian Province.  I discovered it while teaching there and brought pounds of it home.

32. Burning incense at home.  I love the smell and it gives me and the house a sense of tranquility.

33. Nothing.  I love relaxing on the couch until I drift off to sleep.

34. Getting rid of unused clothes, books, and other items I have collected.  The jetsam and flotsam of life which one often finds in the eddies of one’s home and life.

35. Going to my favorite secluded beach in Oregon.  The beaches in Oregon aren’t all warm and sunny like Cali’s beaches.  But there are spots where you can leave humanity behind.

36. Driving to Timberline Lodge at night, in the winter, in order to do donuts in the empty parking lot.

37.  Visiting about any place on the Oregon Coast.  It is especially nice to visit when it is whale watching season.

38. Heading to Oxbow Park during the fall Salmon Run.  It is a magnificent walk along the Sandy River.  The rains haven’t usually started and the Salmon are running upriver to spawn, molting all the way.
