Some of my favorite things... ermmm.. Blogs

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...

Gosh, that song always makes me want to just get up and dance around and swirl my skirt.. and I know that you were all singin' and swayin' along with me, weren't you? Weren't you? Oh my goodness, don't tell me that I'm the only one who knows all the songs and dances and sways around like an idiot to "The Sound Of Music". *gulp*
Pretend that I didn't just admit to that.

Y'all know I love ALL the blogs that I follow... ( or I wouldn't bother following them, now would I ?) but there are 3 in particular, that are near and dear to my heart and they are among some of my favorite things.
So if you find the time, head on over and check them out.

Narelle at Moments For Mum and Tania at Out Back are both in the same "biz" as I am... and to be quite honest, it takes someone incredibly special to do what we do for a living. Not that I'm blowing my own horn, because I'm not.. but I am blowing it for these two gals, because they are such lovely, warm, caring, women. They've got nerves of steel and hearts of gold - which you have to have when you're caring for other people's little munchkins every day.

And another newly-discovered favorite blogger is a gal who first caught my eye when I came across her name on another blog. I mean who could resist someone clever enough to call her blog
Of course I had to check her out because the name was so close to mine... and I'm sooo glad that I did ! She really makes me smile. :o)
(You know.. come to think of it, I think that any woman blessed with at least one "Tater" in her life is truly blessed !)
So now you know what some of my "favorite things" are.
C'mon, share... what are some of yours?

Hi and thanks for the kind words! I'm not sure I live up to them really!
I'm enjoying getting to know you better through reading your thoughts. You too are a wonderful person and I have no doubt that you're a wonderful carer - if only you loved closer, then we could have playdates with our kids!

Thankyou kindly for you lovely words(I've got a lot to live up to now). I totally agree with Narelle with her comments about you. I could not have said it better myself.

You live on one side of Australia, Narelle on the other and me in the middle. Miles apart but one great thing in common, our fabulous job.

Hey, Tater's Mama! Thanks for the kind shout out! I can't wait to check out the other blogs you listed! And the picture you posted on your site today is precious! It's impossible not to smile when you see it!

Have a great day!

What is the time difference between us, buy the way?

So glad you've connected with my good friend, Tater Mama. We've known each other for like 20 years, so I totally trust her recommendation when she told me to visit your blog! Love it and love the cowboy entry... i prefer the ones with a little character as well! G'day mate from one proud American to another!
