Raindrops on roses…

are pretty, but they don’t really do a whole lot for me. Neither do whiskers on kittens. After reading Stacy’s blog last night, I decided to come up with a little list of a few of my own favorite things. Here goes…

  • Brach’s Conversation hearts (fresh in my mind because I just bought a bag from Target today)
  • Brand-new books
  • A newly discovered author
  • Baby smiles
  • Autumn colors
  • Planning for vacation
  • People who know when to stop talking
  • Pick-your-own produce
  • Clever come-backs
  • Libraries
  • Bookstores
  • Homemade chocolate chip cookies
  • Unexpected bursts of color
  • Twilight time
  • Clear skies
  • The smell of coffee (but not the taste)
  • Fish Tacos
  • A kindred spirit
  • Cary Grant
  • Alfred Hitchcock movies
  • Unexpected words used in casual conversation
  • Good manners
  • Japanese gardens

    What about you??

    – Sonic Diet Coke!
    – Sunshine
    – Blue Skies with just a few clouds, to make the sky appear even bluer
    – Books!
    – Burn Notice
    – Football (even if they change players all the time!)

  2. David Cranmer

    I would agree with most of these favorites with brand new books at the top of my list.

  3. Keri Mikulski

    Yummy chocolate chip cookies. I second that one. :)

    Great list.

  4. Green Girl in Wisconsin

    Your list is perfection! Especially Cary Grant and baby smiles. My favorite things include Glee!, Frank Deford, new authors, tulips, children who smile and old pictures.
