A Few of My Favorite Things....

    I always enjoy reading blogs that include all the things that the writer loves. It gives my mind a break from thinking about all the necessities of the day, and simply think about happy times. I enjoy so many things about this life, simple pleasures. So in an effort to slow the mind and bring a simile to the face of my readers, here is a very scaled down list of a few of my favorite things.

-Edible Flowers
     There is something magical about siting down for an afternoon cup of tea and being served a beautiful treat topped with a nasturtium or day lily. Nothing makes my taste buds tingle more than the thought of a home made cream cheese pastry lased with geraniums, honeysuckle, or some whimsical johnny jump-ups.

-Candle lit Bathrooms- bubble baths
     Ok...Ok...., I know this is a typical passion, but I just could not bring myself to leave it out. I like to turn on a little Ali Farka Tour, or Dean Martin whatever seems right for the day and just fade away into the sweet smelling soap suds. Really, Shower people just do not get

-Playing Pretend
     This is a great one! I am so happy that I have imaginative little girls who love to pretend to be fairy princesses or even an attack dragon. I am not sure at what age we are programed to take life so seriously and act like adults. The only thing I know is that dressing up in play clothes and playing make believe is wonderful happy feeling. When I see my little Dharma look at me with big eyes and an open heart and say “Queen mommy, would you like a cup of tea?”Nothing and I do mean nothing in the world could be more perfect.

-Black and White photos

     I have some pictures of my grandmother when she was young. She was so happy back then. Something about that time was ….different. I love to look at the pictures of grandma with her sister and one of her with grandpa and imagine who she was.... I miss her so much. Pictures is all I have left of her, that along with wonderful memories of her love.
