Could be a place or car, a gift, restaurant or food - cats, dog or even a memory. That is pretty open to post most anything then. A reason would be nice too.

My favorite thing is Thanksgiving Holiday dinner. Because I enjoy eating and visiting with family.

Easy to fix good food. I had rice and keep frozen veggies on hand. Sauteed them in butter and added the rice. Lovely.

I agree Panj. Thanks for the clarification.

The rain covered the fires in some areas with enough rain to equal l think they said 2 thousand helicopter water drops.

Fantastic plan Targetsmom. I got most of the glads in, but the tulips bulbs l have a soft and probably no good. I may toss them in a bucket of dirt and cover just to see.

I love easy gardening, it's one of my favorite things.

Panj, what is moison?

cooking soup on a rainy day. Today l made a quick and easy potato soup.
I don't mince up anything but the bacon. It all cooks to a soft stage, when l get the potato masher out and make it all nice and smooth. Not completely tho, l like some chunks. I cook 2 large red potatoes peeled and chunks, several celery stalks, chopped, one onion, chopped and one carrot chopped.Cover with water and cook til all are soft and then mash them and spice it up with garlic/onion blend, some beaumonde, whatever spices you wish and i use chicken broth powder and then after chopping small bits and frying the bacon, l add to the pot. Dish it up and eat in about an hour or less time.

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

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things
