I've recently read several blog posts with titles such as MY FAVORITE THINGS. It's amazing…and interesting…to see what people like (and don't like). Since I'm having trouble thinking of anything sensational to write about, I'm going to steal this idea.
For the past two years I have ordered a large number of Christmas presents from Amazon. Why? I don't have to fight the crowds, shipping is often FREE (another thing I love), more often than not they have either better or comparable prices. And…NO, I am not being compensated by Amazon.
You probably already know about Pinterest…I'm usually the last person to know about anything! I have recently fallen head-over-hills in love with it. If you by some twist of fate haven't jumped on the bandwagon, then take my word for it and JUMP! I have found so many recipes, craft ideas, cute photos, etc., etc. One problem though….it's ADDICTIVE and I spend way too much time over there!
So You Think You Can DANCE!
I am a fanatic about this show! I took years of dancing as a child with the intention of becoming the next ROCKETTE when I grew up! These dancers are awesomely talented. (And, NO, I never became one of the high kickers!)
Love this one too!
READING…oh how I love a good book. My son asked for a KINDLE FIRE for Christmas (and got it) and has tried to convince me I need one too. But I just love the feel of a great book in my hand and the anticipation of turning each page. Right now I'm reading THE HELP.
Organizing…anything! I love to organize. Give me a messy closet and I'll have it cleaned out, sorted, and labeled in a skinny minute. This week while my sweet hubby was out of town I organized every drawer in his office…and prayed he wouldn't kill me when he got home. (He didn'tJ)
Teddy Bears...for years I collected these adorable little characters. Finally had to stop as my collection was getting a tad LARGE and I was running out of room. Students usually added to my stash every year at Christmas or the end of the year. I have been known to hear more than a few whisper to me "take me home."T E A C H I N G…it's part of my DNA…what I truly believe God put me on this earth for. I spent 31 ½ years in my own classroom, have taught Sunday School to several different age groups, and now supervise and teach student teachers and sometimes mentor beginning teachers. Teachers are underappreciated but those of us who do it for the love of the children and the love of teaching find it a privilege to do our work each day.
And, of course,…….
So….what are some of your favorite things?
