Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things …
That’s the first thing that came to mind when Kate Motaung posted her prompt for the week — FAVORITE — for this week’s Five Minute Friday writing flash mob.
So, with that backdrop, for the next five minutes I’ll add a few of my favorite things — in no particular order. The timer is set so let’s GO …
Lazy summer days.
A cold beer on a hot day.
Good friends and company.
The open road.
Walking in a rainstorm.
Driving on back roads at a taking in the sights pace.
Snow. Snow. Snow.
Christmas — all year long.
Sitting in the gazebo.
Putting dreams into action.
Visiting new places.
Museums and antique shops.
Peanut butter … any kind, any where, any time.
A good prime rib … end cut.
Believe it or not, grilled veggies.
Scallops … fresh from the Maine shore.
Sausage and pepper sandwich at the Jersey shore.
The Four Seasons and the Supremes.
Football — and who else, the Green Bay Packers.
Country music in the pick-up truck.
Playing music loud — all genres.
The color green — especially forest green.
The Jazz Singer, Up Close and Personal and Vacation.
Be still and know I am God.
And the list could on and on and on …
