A Few Of My Favorite Things

While visiting Mimi's Garden, one of my favorite blogs, a few days ago, I decided to play along with a little game of hers. She listed "10 Things I Love" starting with the letter "H", which had been assigned to her by another blogger. So I contacted her & she gave me the letter "B".

So here's my list: {O.K. ~ I'll confess right now ~ I didn't follow the rules exactly! Go Figure!!! My list is actually 20 items long. As I'm sure you've noticed, I never ever say in 5 words what I could say in 75 words!}

20 Things I Love That Start With The Letter "B"~

*Babies {even the furry kind!]
*Bible Reading
*Books, books & more books
*Blue Skys
*Breezy Summer Days
*Bed & Breakfasts
*Being at Home
*Boyfriend {yes, I know Scott is my HUSBAND, however I still refer to him as my "boyfriend"}
*Beauty {it's everywhere}
*Blogs {had to include this one}
*Bath Time!
*Baa~baa! {as in SHEEP, as in WOOL, which got me to YARN~ because I had to figure out a way to go there! As with all addicts~ all roads eventually lead to our obsessions!}

Bye~Bye for now!


Hilary said...

Mom, I love your list! Those are all great things.

Kathy said...

I agree with Hilary! Great list. didnt have time to comment this week-end on your blog, love the photo of Gabby asleep at the computer. You are a wonderful Grammy and a terrific Mommy to take the night shift!!

Kathy said...

Just showed off your poncho to Scarlett. OH BOY, she is at the age where she thinks I know how to do everything, and most of the time I can I can fake it, but this oh no. She is ready to move on from our wonderful long chain and now she is ready for me to show her a little more. You know like a poncho with roses. Oh Lord, time for the truth! Scarlett said How cute to gabby and she said kauute to Phoebe!

Becky said...

Oh, bunnies! I love those little fuzzballs! What are you & Gabby baking there?

Kathy said...

Hi Becky!! Hey Danette needs to snap a photo of you dancing around the house to Elvis!! We been working in the yard our weather has been like Spring here our Jonquils(Yankees call them daffodils) are even coming up!

Kathy said...

Oh, Danette dont forget B for Becky, Bartelmay, and Bittle!! Hey, Gabbies little apron is to cute!

Becky said...

Kathy, it would be better if I snapped the picture of Gabby, Aunt Hilary and Grammy dancing. My dancing only involves shaking my booty!! You don't want to be seeing that! I only let Gabby see because she's young enough that she'll probably block those memories out!! ;-D
Danette, doesn't it sound like Kathy needs to come up here to reaquaint herself with 4 seaons, not just 2? :)

Kathy said...

Becky, I am trying to type while I laugh! Shaking booty is a good thing ,No? I think you look REAL young so booty shaking must be a good thing. Now Danette and I, well, let's just say, "do the hustle". I loved that Disco, but had to pretend to hate it and love Heavy metal, Oh dear what peer pressure! I think we just came up with some great blog material! How is the weather in Illinois? Any more snow?

Liz said...

Oh sweet babies! I love the picture of you and Miss Gabby at the kitchen counter.

Awesome list!


Kathy said...

Love your list, Danette. Babies would have been on mine too if I'd had the letter B - I'm a baby addict! Books, bracelets and blue skies are pretty wonderful things too. Have a beautiful week knitting those wonderful creations of yours, Danette!

Sandra said...

Hi Danette, I've been catching up on reading your posts and just love the pictures of Phoebe...the one of her looking up at the camera is just sooo cute! How could she get in trouble for chewing on a pair of ole glasses? :o)

The poncho turned out beautifully and the roses/leaves add so much to it. Where did you find the pattern for knitted roses?

I enjoyed your list of favourite things mainly because I like a lot of the same things. I also got a good laugh with your reference to saying things in 75 words instead of 5! Do you think we might be related? lol!

Thanks for taking time to visit my blog. I plan on trying the 7 mm dp today. I'll let you know how it goes.

Becky said...

Maybe you girls can teach Aunt Hilary, Gabby and me the hustle!! Ever since I saw Fran Drescher to it on The Nanny, I knew it was the dance for me!

No snow, hallelujah!! Our snow is all gone and for the first time in months, I wore a sweater, no coat to work!!! I'm enjoying it while it lasts!

Danette said...

Phoebe IS cute ~ it's what keeps her alive. She's working towards shredding everything in the house these days!
The pattern for the knitted roses is in Nicky Epstein's book: "Knitted Flowers". One of my favorite books ever!!!
I hope we ARE related. Wouldn't that be fun?!
Good luck with the 7mm's.

Danette said...

As for you ~ Miss Becky ~
The only "hustle" left in me is in my fingers! We'll have to get Kathy up here from Georgia.
[Notice I keep trying any tactic to get a visit from her!}

Becky said...

Um...I recall very clearly a certain blogger shaking her groove thang quite ferociously to "Elvis Elvis." Somebody besides me. Not saying who.
