Favorite Things. 2016-04-14

FirstTulipFavorite things are some of my favorite things. The list is different for each and every person. It’s an individual compilation of stuff that makes our day, provides a smile, brings to mind a happy memory, gives us a warm heart, makes us laugh, and connects to our better selves in some way. Here are some of my faves (in no particular order):

  • Writing this blog
  • Retirement with my husband
  • The interesting people my children and grandchildren have become and are becoming
  • The internet
  • Keeping in touch by texting
  • My iPhone and iPad
  • Netflix and entertainment streaming
  • The giggle of a child
  • A welcome hug from a friend
  • Spirituality
  • Starbucks skinny vanilla latte
  • Iced tea with lemon mint from the garden
  • My cat, Oreo Speedwagon (well, most of the time)
  • A just opened bottle of seltzer water with a fresh lemon slice
  • The first grill-out of the year
  • Squirrels playing in the tree outside my office window
  • Backyard wildlife counting on me to keep them fed and safe
  • A car in good condition, full of gas, and can take me anywhere
  • Our robin family’s first appearance at the birdfeeder in Spring
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • A new drawing from my grandkids

  • All the other millions of places I’ve seen and visited
  • Silly-dancing with a 3-year old
  • Holiday Game Night with Jane Lynch
  • Holiday decorations
  • Great movies, television, and radio shows
  • Rock music and bands
  • Plants and flowers (love them all)
  • Crocs in the garden
  • Cob salad (open to any and all suggestion on where to find a good one)
  • Scented jar candles
  • Waking up every day. (so far so good)

These are just some that come to mind at the moment. There are many more; but hey, who has the time to write or read them all?
Have a great day living and loving your favorites and allow your list to continue growing and growing… Sandy
