a few of my favorite things

windows thrown open with a fan blown breeze
cicada's humming loudly in the trees
the first tentative chirps in spring time as the birds return
the golden colors of fall
the crispness of a cold morning
the steam of a mug of coffee in a cool room
the sound of lots of people turning in their Bibles
the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies
that first whiff as you walk into a bakery
the dollop of whip cream on a piece of still warm pumpkin pie
the first sip of a coca-cola when you have not had one in a while
my kids when they first wake up and right before they drift off to sleep
taking Tanner on a walk, he bounces down the driveway
the smell of the fall aisle at Hobby Lobby
the moment that you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God heard that prayer
hearing old hymns
relearning to play the piano
doing tendus after many years of not doing them
running down the sidewalk on a cool afternoon
going to the lake and just sitting there and listening to the water lap gently against the shore
a great book that you lose yourself in
the promise of hope and His faithfulness
check off sheets and lists
paper and pen
Starbucks coffee frappucinos, mochas, or toffee nut lattes
a cappucino and pumpkin scone
Anne of Green Gables
Pride & Prejudice
The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
26.2 miles
Listening to someone from Great Britian read a book

How about you? What are a few of your favorite things?
