My Favorite Things - April 2017 Edition

It's that time again, dear reader!

(cue game show theme music)

My Favorite Things!

From time to time, I like to indulge in a little show and tell. It's the grown up version where I show and tell you MY favorite things.

1. Topiaries. I have no idea why I love these round balls of greenery on a stick stuck in a planter, but, by golly, I do. Here is a photo of the current topiary offerings in my humble abode. Don't worry, they aren't usually lined up like this, but I am getting ready to move and stuck them altogether until I can figure out how to pack them.

2. The Tonight Dough by Ben & Jerry.  (Diet? What diet?!)  Ben, Jerry and I are not friends. Well, Ben and Jerry must be, but I am not included in their exclusive group. My political leanings are too far right for their taste. But for my taste, so many of their ice cream flavors hit the spot. Currently, I love the Jimmy Fallon inspired flavor, The Tonight Dough.

This delightful concoction combines caramel and chocolate ice creams with chocolate chip cookie dough, peanut butter cookie dough and a crunchy chocolate cookie swirl for an extra-chunky experience that would knock the socks off your freezer, you know, if freezers wore socks.  It's a good thing they don't, huh?!

3. Hammocks. This wonderful outdoor lounging experience has been on my mind (and list) for quite awhile. And it was about time I made it official. What's not to love about a hammock? Well, okay, rolling out of one isn't the most pleasant experience . . .

4. LOST Though I never lost my enthusiasm for this show, I did learn to let it go . . . until last summer when I rewatched the series.  It made even more sense and I loved it even more the second time around.  I even went so far as to make THIS purchase:

Yahoo!  It was a steal . . . and I couldn't resist. Even my kids have leafed through it's many pages on more than one occasion.  JJ where are you?  Damon, Carlton?  We need another great series like this one.  TV just hasn't been the same . . . If LOST ever gets the boot on Netflix . . . I may have to purchase the series.  I'm just sayin'.  I'm also going to say one more thing: They weren't dead the whole time. Trust me. And if you believe they were: you missed the entire point of the show, but I love you anyway.

There you have it: my current faves and loves.  What are your faves?

Counting it all listy joy,

    YOU are high on my list of favorite things, Dear Heart. I normally refuse to give any of my money to Ben & Jerry just on principle, but after reading today's entry I am seriously re-thinking that position. 🤔😁
