These are a Few of my Favorite Things

October 3, 2008 | 5 comments

Inspired by this lovely fall October day — and also inspired by frassy blogger BooMama — I offer a list of things that make me feel happy. Feel free to add your own!

In no particular order:

1) Hot, cinnamon-y apple cider
2) Piles of crunchy leaves
3) Being able to fit into last year’s jeans
4) A child nestled on my right hip
5) Singing at the top of my lungs
6) Watching Farmer Hubby on the John Deere out back
7) Chocolate-covered soynuts
8) My frassy neighbor
9) Laughing so hard I cry
10) My Okoboji sweatshirt
11) The baby smell
12) Saturday-morning snuggles with my girls
13) Searching for perfect pumpkins
14) Schwan’s delivery
15) “Planet Earth”
16) Bubble baths
17) A glass of Angeline Pinot Noir
18) Psalm 63:2-5
19) Seeing God in the weeds (thanks, Anna)
20) Anna adds: “Chocolate and princess dresses”

How ’bout you?

    1) the smell of cold before the feel of cold.
    2) coffee in the morning
    3) hot tea in the evening
    4) my journal
    5) when my two year old gets in bed with me in the morning

    Ooooh Serena! I love the way you expressed “the smell of cold before the feel of cold.” So true! Anything new with the queries? And, hey, I love your blog.

    Nothing new. I’m feeling discouraged. I have to post a blog about my latest beta reader experience, though. It’s a great example of how my book is effecting people.

    Thanks for the compliment, Jen. 🙂
