A few of my favorite things....

Inspired by kaymac, here are a few of my favorite things...

  • Watching the Great Blue Heron fish on our pond every morning.

  • Listening to Olivia's laughter.

  • Seeing Brillo Man come in from a few hours of riding the John Deere --all muddy and tired --knowing he's been outside doing one of HIS favorite things --DIGGING ANOTHER HOLE!

  • Playing Scrabble against the computer and winning!

  • Doing Crossword puzzles.

  • Talking on the phone to faraway friends.

  • Singing praise songs to my Lord!

  • Watching the kingfisher swoop down from his perch and grab a meal from the pond.

  • Listening to the doves coo.

  • Watching American Idol (did I say that? --it's true --I'm hooked.)

  • The smell of freshly cut grass (of which I haven't experienced yet this year because the mower needs new blades).

  • Changing from 'real' clothes into pj bottoms and a comfy, old T-shirt.

  • The flowers and new leaves of spring!

    Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. --Song of Solomon 2:12

    I too love watching the Great Blue Heron's on your state park. I wish.
    I LOVE listening to the Doves coo, and also just like to look at them...they are so ..peaceful.
    Great list, I bet it was hard not to have the list go on and on, aren't we blessed beyond belief?
    ps
    changing from real clothes to comfy clothes ~priceless.

    Deb, you are definitely my kinda sister. I can echo so many of your favorite things. Wouldn't it be nice to have a neighbor who liked to play scrabble and sip peach tea beneath the trees in our back yards. Oh, my~~~those were the good old days. selahV
