Ahem...A List. Yes. A List.

It has been brought to my attention that a week has passed since I posted a list of any kind! This must be some sort of a record for me. I found this one on our Gretchen's blog. I hope she will forgive me for my devious act of thievery. So, without further ado (and I still wish someone would tell me exactly how long an ado is or what an ado is)....a list. From me.
My Favorite Things... with apologies to Rodgers & Hammerstein
Sound Children laughing, a gentle rain at the windows, crickets on a Summer's evening, a cat's purring. Late night snackPopcorn, Coke, brownies, chocolate chip cookies..perhaps even all at once! Smell - Coffee brewing, lilacs, cinnamon, fresh pine. Color combination - Blues & browns, blues and whites or yellows, reds and black. NutMacadamia Time of the year - Autumn...I doubt this is a huge surprise! Author John Steinbeck Vegetable - Steamed broccoli, zucchini, fresh corn. Male Actor - Hmmm...this one is so difficult for me. Okay, if I must give you an answer...there is this man, tall guy...older, been around a long time...Dennehy something...oh yeah. Brian Dennehy. And this is a shock to whom? Flower Daisies, roses, lilacs, hydrangea. Vacation spotNew York City, Chicago, San Fransisco PizzaDeep dish, pepperoni, lots of different cheeses, sweet peppers, mushrooms, garlic. Sport to play - Does Scrabble or Monopoly count? No? Um...I can play a mean game of air hockey. Still no? Aw gee.... Subject in schoolEnglish, art, history. TV channelThe History Channel, HGTV, BBC America, PBS, TNT for "Law and Order" reruns... Radio station - Any oldies station...and yes. I am an oldie. Holiday - Thanksgiving. Hands down. Love the meaning behind the day, the way we all slow down before the mad rush, the food, the traditions, the Macy's Parade, the football. Perfume -Sunflowers, Cashmere, Philosophy's Grace and Falling In Love ShoesAnything comfortable. Usually flats or with a stack heel. LOVE boots. CandyM & Ms, Twizzlers, Junior Mints or Hershey's Kisses. City to shopNYC or Chicago. Female actress – Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Joan Plowright, Meryl Streep, Dianne Wiest, Diane Keaton, Kate Winslett. Beauty products - Philosophy, Clinique, Avon. Item to shop forBooks, antiques, household items and more books. Nothing earth shatteringly new for me to divulge I know but fun. And, guess what? It is R.A.I.N.I.N.G. I almost did not recognize the sound. I think we will all go to bed and enjoy this luxury from the Heaven's....'night dear friends! Hugs, Susie Q

Now that's what I call a great list:-) How do you suppose we all knew that you'd put Brian Dennehy as your fave actor?? hehe Woohoo for the rain, I know how much it was needed over there...we had quite a downpour yesterday complete with wicked winds. Today, sunny and mild:-) xoxo

Dawn Bibbs said...

Hmmm, I must've missed this one on Gretchen's blog. But maybe I'll steal it from you...later in the week :-).

Great list, by the way.

Gretchen said...

You can steal from me anytime! And...air hockey! Good one. I'll take you DOWN, baby! Sorry, I feel aggressive like that around once a year. I'm better now. I'm being medicated. It's all good.

And...Loved your list.
