Perfecting life

I really shouldn't complain. Things are going well. The maple tree in my yard is turning gorgeous colors. The market is brimming with squash, of nearly all shades of the rainbow. My son is healthy and way less fussy than he used to be. My husband is wonderful, as usual. And the book is coming together. But, really, life can always be improved upon. So I got to thinking, and here's what I came up with. Of course, in addition to world peace, a solution to poverty, and finding a cure for AIDS, cancer, and all childhood disease, it would be a perfect world if:

*Le Creuset products would all cost less than $9.99 a piece.
*Babies came programmed with the ability to change their own diapers, sleep through the night, and play contentedly.
*Articles and books would write themselves and be brilliant on the first draft.
*The soundtrack playing everywhere would be good jazz.
*People (and babies too) would all start the day at 9 a.m., because that's a more reasonable hour than 6 a.m.
*I had a butler.

Alright, I'll stop there. What would your perfect world look like?

Writing about food all day, and reading everything I have piled up beside my bed would be a big improvement on my daily life :)
