Favorite Things


Friday Past, I went to Respice, Prospice and found this POST... Myra  said name 10 of your 

Right Now Favorite things.

 Little things Matter.  

I came up with this list.

1. Beau

2. Beau talking

3. Beau walking

4. Any or all devices I can connect to internet! ( if I had to pick one device, out of 4 I just can't. Kindle and All in one Desktop are tied.)

5. Clean glass in the house (sliding doors not cleaned for 3 weeks now)

6. Clean floors

7. Grass cut short

8. Quiet 

9. Talking to strangers 

10. Just Talking to anyone.

The thing is, if I had been asked this question 8 weeks ago, my answers would have been different. Seems my little things favorites change with LIFE.

 The one thing that has been true for 335 days, is My Number 1 has and is always 

 Name a few of your favorite NOW things.

Now I want to know what your favorite things were 8 weeks ago! Let's see, some of my favorite things...Phil, shopping, snapping, looking at nature but NOT camping!

One of my favorite things is seeing pictures of Beau and reading about him. Thank you for sharing him. 😊

right now it is the chair with the stripy cushion. My condo is my regular favourite. Then there is freshly roasted chicken, cheesy party mix treats, waking F before her alarm goes off, back scratches (that's high on the list), xxx Mr T (PS my most unfavourite thing is getting my ears washed out.)

At the start of last year's lockdown, I came up with a survival list of favourite and essential things, the three 'B's. Bertie, books and bicycle. That still pretty much holds.
Cheers, Gail.
PS Family and friends of course should have been be included but don't fit the pattern of alliteration!

WFT Nobby said...

PS to comment above. It's just occurred to me it should have been the Four B's. Bertie, Books, Bicycle and BLOG (of course)

Hello, Beau

You would be my number one, top of the list of favorite things.
I am like your Mama, my kindle and the internet is another important thing.
HUGS, take care! Have a great day!

Rose said...

Oh my word, that's quite a list... but what about Beau's faves? Then again, I guess after the orange thang, it would be walkies, daddy, mummy, food, sleep and repeat!

Mine? Right now it is trawling YouTube for travelogues in vans, then researching vans, researching adapting vans, watching the Tour of Britain bike race, filling up my blogs, reading others' blogs, looking out at the hills, watching the rowan leaves turn orange, dreaming of kitting out a van, and hearing the gulls calling... YAM xx

Beau you and your mom always delight and amuse you are in my list of favorite things.
In no particular order a few of mine are
the color red, all creatures great and small, coffee,
chocolate, walking, sewing, reading, talking, music, I like most all of it except very hard rock.
Hugs Cecilia

Aw, thanks for the shout-out. I'm so glad you played along, and I'm enjoying reading others' comments.

One thing I forgot! -- Coming back to bed in the morning to wait 30 minutes for coffee. Macie joins me and we read our devotional and everyone's blog posts. I'm still pinching myself at the realization I don't have to rush to get ready and commute to work.

Chatty Crone said...

Guess Beau is your favorite thing!

Tigger said...

Ha- we just got the message you got your walkie today. We bet you are all grinning from ear to ear, even Mum, cos it must mean she is back upright without her head fighting her feet for a place on the pavement. xxx Mr T

Millie and Walter said...

We think meal times (that's ours and our pawrents) is one of our favorite things because there is always something for us. Time outside in our yard, finding rabbit poop to eat (BOL!), snuggling on the big bed with our pawrents, and having pawrents that are retired so they are with us most of the time are some of our other favorite. We also have to add you and all our other blog friends as one of our top favorite things, too.

Anni said...

Golly. I now feel like breaking into a song..."raindrops on roses..."
First, love your hats Beau. Are you getting to walk with mom yet? Or is it too soon for meds to kick in and do their wondrous thing?

A few of my favorite things? Flowers, birds, holidays, cheeseburgers (can you relate to those Beau?), movies, books, city lights, storm clouds....

Brian said...

That was a good list and ours would probably change daily!

photowannabe said...

Hmmm, there are so many favorite things and like your Mama they change with Life and the times.
Love my blogging friends, a good cup of coffee,going places with Dave, being in the Redwoods, my family, God's Word, photography, a welcoming table and company I could go on but that will do for now...oh yes, the wonderful young man Dave and I met yesterday at the Rocklin Fire Department pancake breakfast. He is 17 and he truly gave us hope for the generation coming up. Didn't even get his name or a picture but we will never forget him.

Better be careful Beau. You made it onto the list (#1) but your Dad didn't, BOL! XOX Xena and Lucy

Ann said...

I'm sure that my list would change from week to week but at this moment I think my favorite thing is getting up without an alarm clock.

Ojo said...

Hi friend, Ojo here! My favourite things, in no particular order, are: Breakfast, Dinner, Couch, Chasing Things, Walks, Popcorn, and Ice Cream. Ooooh, I'd like some ice cream, please!
