When the dog bites, when the bee stings

I simply remember my favorite things:

6)Being warm under the covers while the air around me is chilly.
7)A real letter in the real mail.

9)Girl Meets God, Shopaholic series, The Secret Garden, The Wind in the Willows, anything by Roald Dahl
10)Cold White Zin.
11)Hot white tea.
12)Pinot Noir
13)My down comforter
14)Chopin, Norah, Keith Jarrett (please listen to the samples), Diana Krall, Renée Fleming, Bob Seger, Jackson Browne, Beethoven, Bach, Handel
15)Chocolate labs
16)Sam, the blue-mackeral-tabby-sycophant-cat
17)The smell of a camp fire; the taste of s'mores
18)My mother's home.
19)OPI colors Cajun Shrimp, Cotton Candy, Massachussets Mulberry, and Chapel of Love
20)Guacamole, Tortilla Chips, and ice-cold beer

Love the Shopaholic!

The total quiet when it snows and I'm out early in the morning shoveling out my car.

Taking a nap with my dog Gyps under the covers providing the warmth (if I try to scootch away from her she'll just scootch more until I'm hugging the edge of the bed...).

Cake - chocolate cake with white icing. YUM!

Crunching leaves in the fall.

Great list, Rae!

Sent here from the llamabutchers. I love those guys, though they're not my favorite things...

My wife's chocolate truffles
Snuggling with the kids under the covers on a Sunday morning
Loud Skynyrd when no one else is in the house
Playing blues guitar with the neighbors
The smell of Fall
The smell of Spring
The smell of Winter
Do you see a pattern here?
The smell of fish you get on your hands when you first pull them from the lake.
The hugs I get when I first walk through the door in the afternoon.

I'm sorry to report that all my nephews & niece think the Lindsay Lohan Parent Trap totally rocks over Halley Mills. What's THAT about?? Next you'll tell me kids today think In Search of the Castaways is LAME.

Jeff- I think it has to be because the parents don't watch the films with the kids and make it more fun?

It could also be that they have no attachment to the memories we hold for those films....

We gotta get you off the white zin...

What? Patrick, I love White Zin. Chardonnay is too spicy for me, and I can't stand warm, dry wines....what else is left?
