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.

That’s the first thing that popped into my head when I read today’s topic for the Spin Cycle (What’s the Spin Cycle? Visit to find out!)

So, what are my favorite things?

Favorite pastime: I love to read (sadly I don’t get to do enough of it anymore). Stephen King is my all time favorite author, but I also like Dean Koontz, Mary Higgins Clark, Ann Rule (great true crime author!).

Favorite TV shows: ER, Law and Order (doesn’t matter which one), CSI (the original)

Favorite movie: Say Anything starring my all-time favorite actor: John Cusack!

Favorite food: I’ve never met a chocolate cake I didn’t like. And it has to be a REAL chocolate cake with chocolate icing. I had the BEST chocolate cake today though…chocolate cake with chocolate icing covered in chocolate shavings. It was to DIE for!!

Favorite place I’ve lived: Phoenix, AZ…if it wasn’t for my husband, I don’t think I ever would have left (at least not willingly!).

Favorite nonalcoholic drink: Diet Coke

Favorite alcoholic drink: hmmmm…I love me a good margarita on the rocks. Tequila sunrise comes in a close second!

My all-time favorite thing: having my family under one roof. My whole family…all five girls, husband, and yes, even the dog. Unfortunately, this only happens twice a year. It’s the only time I don’t feel like there’s a hole in my heart and my family is incomplete.



  1. FIVE GIRLS???
    I’m impressed!
    I also love to read, Nora Roberts is a great favorite as well as Jude Devauraux (I’m sure I misspelled that..)
    I’m muddling through the Twilight series as we speak, but the angst! The angst! She burns!
    You’re linked and welcome back!

  3. I love Say Anything, one of my favorite 80s flicks ever. I’ve been a fan of John Cusack ever since.

  4. I love Say Anything, Stephen King and Law & Order. I only like Criminal Intent and SVU, the original one never did it for me…
    Great list of favorites!

  5. Having your whole family under one roof….priceless! And happens rarely when they all grow up, so cherish these years.
