A Few of My Favorite Things

The idea for this  post came to me as I was falling asleep to the sound of my younger cat purring.  There is no way to describe the joy this sound gives me.  My cat will go on and on until he falls asleep.  He is just a sweet boy.

Another favorite sound is of birds chirping in the morning as I am waking up.  This is something I remember from my childhood.  Just lying in bed and listening, not wanting to get up.  Their sound was so very soothing.

The sound of a baby's laughter.  There is nothing else like it.  Just pure joy. 

Another favorite on my list is my trip to Hawaii.  Now that I went there, I can't wait to go back and just sit on the beach and watch the ocean.

Then there is my 2 cats Tiger and Motor,  and our dog Jack.  Pets are such a source of unconditional love.

Beautiful handmade jewelry.

Wire wrap jewelry.

The feeling of watercolor paint flowing from my brush onto thick watercolor paper.  This literally has the feeling of being in the "flow" of life.  I have felt when I am in this peaceful state like all is well.

Music and singing.  I love to sing.  I sing all the time.  I make up songs for my pets constantly.

Reading.  I love when I have a book I just do not want to put down.

That is all I can think of for now.  I'm sure more will come to me.

What are some of your favorite things?

Cats, quilting, walks in the woods, music and singing, a good book on my Nook!

I would love to see some of your watercolor creations and to hear the story behind each piece.

My favorite things, goodness, too many to name. Fresh picked Cortland apples from the tree (the crisp bite, the white flesh and the amazing flavor), Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheese (so creamy and smooth, just melts in your mouth but delivers a strong cheddar flavor), a purring kitty when being petted, especially from BK, who being an outside stray, doesn't get the luxury of human contact whenever he wants.
