I do love raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, and especially brown paper packages tied up with string, but a few of the other things that I love aren't found in The Sound Of Music. Crisp autumn mornings, for instance. Early mornings, with roosters crowing outside my window, my robe wrapped around me, and a steaming cup of coffee in a locally made, hand thrown mug in my hand. Hand thrown pottery definitely makes my list of favorites.
The Andy Griffith Show. This has been our nightly entertainment lately.
Watching my kids play together.
Watching my kids eat (and enjoy!) collards from the garden and lacto-fermented pickled okra. How weird am I, that beneficial bacteria make me so happy?
Health food stores. I dream of owning one someday.
Yarn shops. I dream of owning one of those too. Or maybe a health food/yarn shop combo. How cool would that be?!
Walking through falling leaves.
Homeopathic cough syrup that actually works.
My husband. He definitely tops cough syrup and yarn shops.
Apologia science. We are doing sea creatures this year and it is fascinating. Cetaceans. Pinnipeds. Benthic animals. See, I like it just because I can use big words and sound really smart.
Thanksgiving. The best holiday. Faith, family, food, falling leaves. And our annual traditional 1,000 piece folk art jigsaw puzzle.
New baby calves everywhere.
Leggings, tunics and tall boots. These had better never go out of style, because I'm pretty sure I'm committed for life.
Blogging. I'm not the greatest or most polished blogger out there, but I do it for the sheer joy of the creative process. To anyone who reads my ramblings here...thank you! You are one of my favorite things too.
