Friday at Five–A Few of My Favorite Things

This week’s Rev Gal’s blog challenge is to list favorite things…We were reminded that “Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction.  Break the habit. Talk about your joys”. (Rita Schiano).    Here are a few things that bring me joy in particular order and numbering more than five…

1)  Helping my niece, Rebecca, learn to stand, knowing she “sees” me with her hand, and watching her fall in love with my husband’s bald head

2)  Taking a vacation to Washington DC and learning that the highlight was the Metro


3)  Seasonal scents and flavor–currently I’m savoring pumpkin…ah the pumpkin

4) iTunes, WXPN, PBS, and NPR

5) Grey’s Anatomy, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, and Twin Peaks–well really anything pop culture, but these are current favorites

6)  Cats


7) Vegetables fresh from the garden and homemade tomato sauce


8) Books–and a family that both enjoys reading AND can now read independently–including car tripsIMG_0336


9)  Days at the beach

10)  Sunshine

11) A cup of coffee first thing in the morning

12)Homemade pop-tarts, seltzer water, cheese of all kinds,







13)  The sound of laughter
