A Few of my Favorite Things...

So yesterday, I was listening to the radio--the classical station--and on came a medley of the songs from The Sound of Music...I've seen this film a few times in my life and I know some words to most of them. Anyway, the point is when "My Favorite Things" played, the idea for this morning's post was sparked.

It's been a tough few weeks, and I won't go into detail, but suffice it to say that two things have hit me in the last couple of days...

One was a post on Facebook. See here...

And the other was the song. For your listening pleasure, if you're so inclined:

So in the interest of my mental health, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite things. In no particular order:

1. Hanging out with my kids.
2. A cup of hot Plantation Mint tea from Bigelow. (just this brand/flavor) Which I drink just about every day.
3. cats
4. birds
5. cross stitching
6. reading
7. writing
8. hanging out with writer friends
9. Danish licorice--the salty kind :)
10. my house/being at home
11. scented candles on a dreary day
12. fall / fall colors
13. the color green
14. freshly mown grass

Care to share some of your favorite things?? Please do--

Ahh ... Favorite things ...

The wonderful smell of something baking on a dreary day -- particularly if it has cinnamon in it.

Sitting on the front porch, doing nothing :-)

Spending time with family

Sitting on a mountainside (or a beach) with a great view.

Watching the stars overhead & enjoying the vastness of the universe.

Chocolate. :)
