Favorite Things

I looked out my kitchen widow at 5:30 am this morning and to my delight there was snow on the ground. It shimmered shadowy blue in the early morning light—so pristine. Unmarred. Untouched.

I thought of Julie Andrews and her wonderful song “Favorite Things” from the Sound of Music.

Here are a few if my favorite things: (as usual they are in no particular order)
