Diamonds and pearls and rubies and whatever other precious stones there are…..these are all in my fantasy. However a quiet evening with a bottle of Mirassou Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc, with Quincy Jones’ (et al) ‘Secret Garden’ playing in the background does it for me.
My newest hobby – reading – is another. A good book – not excluding the Fifty Shades Trilogy – will help my mind relax, forget about the days troubles and ease me into another realm surrounded only by the characters I read about. These are a few of my favourite things. Simple but my favourite things.
The smell of cream filling on the stove top in preparation for making a Boston Cream Pie or just tending to my sometimes neglected orchid adds delight to my being.
On a Sunday, a football (NFL) game, a meal of Grilled Pork Chops and Potato Salad complete with a seasonal fruit juice blend and Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert makes the lazy day a more favourable one and more importantly a few of my favourite things.
What are some of your favourite things?
