"A Few Of My Favorite Things!"~~ Six Word Saturday

Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens...
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens...
Brown paper packages tied up with string...

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites...when the bee stings...when I'm feeling sad~~~
I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel so bad!!!!~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Do you remember that song? I think I learned it when I was in the fourth grade and I used to sing it all the time.

In actuality those aren't my favorite things at all. Here is a list of some Truthful Tidbits...and bits and pieces of my life...favorite things that I enjoy!:


Springtime~~~ when I can sit and listen to the birdies sing





Autumn~~~ when I can see all of the trees changing colors




Beaches~~~ where I can sit and watch the waves roll back and forth, and listen to the sound of the waves crashing to the shore




Roses~~~ in a vase on my table, especially when they smell delightful




Tulips~~~ as they push up from the ground and quickly grow and bloom, and then humbly bow





Fluffy white clouds~~~ in a bright blue sky




And some other things I consider to be high on my list are:

Blogging~~~ posting, reading, and commenting




Reading~~~ Christian fiction, and historical romances, as well as biographies and true stories





Writing poetry~~~ usually first thing in the morning, when a title and the first few lines run through my mind




Listening to Music~~~ especially when I am alone in my car taking a drive




Good Movies~~~ when I am on a date with my husband, or on a DVD at home




Decorating~~~ I love to decorate...and re-decorate





Antiquing~~~ especially while on trips with my husband

Make up and Lipstick




Pretty clothes~~~ I especially like to accessorize with pretty jewelry and scarves




Curio Cabinets~~~ that hold all the little bits and pieces...and souvenirs of my life






"A Few Of My Favorite Things!"

Just thought I'd post this on Six Word Saturday today as I remember some of my favorite things in this life. Of course the PEOPLE in my life are the most important to me...but as far as the things and happy times go, I have created a partial list here. There are so many I would be here all day listing them!

Thanks for dropping in. I snook out of school aged 8, blagged my way on the bus to our local market town( 8 miles away)and then waited for the back exit door of the cinema to open so I could creep in and watch the film. My six word Saturday

Yup, many of my favourite things too. I can point out many things in all the seasons that I love (Spring = new growth, Summer = sunshine, Fall = harvest, Winter = walks in crisp snow after a snowfall). I like that song myself and smiled as I sang along to it in my head. Thanks for popping by my blog.
