these are a few of my favorite things ...

1) new growth in the spring - the light green tips on the dark green branches.

2) little purple pansies touched with yellow gold - voluteering where ever they see fit

3) walking with friends - it's always better to walk and talk ... makes the time pass quickly and not feel like exercise!

4) the song that plays when the clowns come tumbling out of their car at the circus - it's the same tune i 'dootdadoodle' when trying to 'herd cats' ... i mean get my children in the car.

5) motherhood quotes that are right on - like "I figure if the kids are alive at the end of the day, I've done my job!" and "All mothers are working mothers." and especially "Motherhood is not for sissies!"

6) the smell of babies - just bathed, lotioned and powdered (deep inhale then fast exhale with a satisfied and happy 'aaaaahhh!')

7) blue moons - they really aren't any different than a normal full moon except they happen so rarely that when you get to see one you want to call everybody and tell them to hurry outside to see it ...

8) giraffes

9) daisies on the side of the road - Andy calls them weeds ... but he stops to cut some for me every once in a while.

10) reading blogs and comments from my friends in the blogoshere!!
What are your favorite things today?
