 This is not the greatest, even after manipulation.  But still, I like Red-winged Blackbirds.  I love their song, specially in the spring.  When we start hearing them, we know that spring really is on its way.


Sandra, over at Fourpaws did a post on her favorite things.  And I thought I could do a post on favorite things.  I could probably come close to naming 10 of my favorite posts of hers but I will limit it to just three or four that I think of often..such as Eek!  Geek Position Open,      Eek, Geek Position Open part 2,   Bloviator,  and just one more:  The Art of Love and Bickering.  There are others but these are just a few of the ones I go back to, to lighten my mood.

Their conversations are so funny simply because they make me think of Roger and me.  I really need to start writing down some of ours.  And we won't mention the times that Roger will get me going on purpose by pretending to think I say one thing when all the time he knows what I actually did say.  Or he will say 'what?' repeatedly.  


Anyway, as to favorite things, she listed 10...

1.  I love seeing/hearing from the kids.  Just a text or two really keeps me going most of the time. 

2.  Emails or letters from friends. 

3.  New books, especially memoirs about living in Alaska.  

4. Sitting on the front porch to read is a favorite thing.  It is one of the things I miss most in winter.

5. Tomatoes.  Fresh from the garden!  Or in my case this year, direct from my potted plants.

6.  I don't get to go very often...cannot even remember the last time I had a rambling drive with no destination in mind.  But I would love to be able to take at least one rambling drive a week.  They just do not happen now.

7. Photography is still a favorite...I just need to learn to find stuff here at home to photograph.

8.  The internet!  I love how so much information is at the end of our fingertips.  

9.  Quilting and sewing is a love, as you might have guessed.  I love sewing machines, and fabric and needles..just anything related.

10. And I love Psalm 139: 1-18  

Those are just a few of the things I love....what are some of yours?

Edited to add:  How could I forget Fall!  It is one of my favorite things in all life.  Thank you All is Amazing for being the first to comment and remind me.
