A Few of My Favorite Things

Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens. . . We all know the song. I'm really not sure why they always play it with all the Christmas music though, because while yes, Christmas is a favorite, the whole rain drops on roses thing kind of leads you to think of spring/summer. But anyway, I've been thinking for a couple weeks about some of my favorite things, so here they are not necessarily in this order.
  • A smile from a friend across the church
  • A text saying "It's a Nephew!!"
  • Ordering/buying gifts for people
  • Bags (some purses, but mostly totes of all kinds!)
  • My job - yes I really do quite enjoy my job! I work with some of the nicest people!
  • Snuggling up on the couch with my husband for a movie
  • Collaborating on some ridiculous idea/fantasy with my husband
  • Laughing - with anyone!
  • A card from a friend just because they were thinking of me
  • Music of many different variations
  • School - although it's not always fun and it stresses me out sometimes
  • My sewing machine
  • My kitchen - even when it's messy
  • Hanging out with friends til all hours
  • Flowers - fake is good, real is better!!
  • A good bargain - OR good stuff for free! :-)
  • Belting the ONE fun line of a song at the exact same time as Jon - as if on cue! :-)
  • A good chic flick, a good foot soak, and a good friend to do it with!
  • A comfy old hoodie
  • Pajamas
  • A warm cup of coffee on a cold rainy day - Green Mountain Colombian Fair Trade is the best!
  • Our Saturday morning biscuit and gravy brunch
  • The 4th of July
  • Pictures of family
  • Coloring book pages and fun foam projects from my niece on my refrigerator

I could go on and on, but I won't for now. You're not officially tagged or anything, but feel free to post your own list either under comments, or on your own blog.

That was a cool idea! I enjoyed reading your list and yes, it would probably do us all good to make a list like that occassionally.

I like, very clever...I will have to think about it a bit and come up with my own posting. But you set a pretty high bar you know. It isn't that I'm not grateful and don't have a good life but sitting here I think I have maybe 5 that come to mind. :-p I really need to get out more.
Once I get my list done then I'll challenge Beck and Net.

Yes Beck, I have just been feeling really blessed and content lately and thought maybe sharing would inspire others to start counting thier blessings - even the ordinary, everyday ones.

Rach, Like I said I had been thinking about it for a while as different things happened, but when I actually sat down to write it all out I blanked! It took a little bit to get this list together.
