I find, that wanting to write my favorites Friday makes me find so many things that I love.
1) Babar’s world tour Spencer and I read this book yesterday. They talk in lots of different languages and visit lots of fun places. Of course, they find that home is the very best place to be at. Especially when your father is the elephant king and can provide you with your very own ping pong table. I’d put a link to Amazon but go get it at your local library. I love the Barbar books, totally takes me back to childhood.
2) Stories of good on the news. So many yucky things in this world. I’m glad that there are still so many good people out there, doing good things. I’m thankful for each and every one of those people (and most likely, I’m thankful for the good things YOU, my reader, are doing too).
3) Moms who love their kids. There was a mom on the news who’s son is in March Madness with a local team. She said, “my favorite place in the world is watching him play.” She said this right after we’d had the war of the world over who got to watch me do the wii fit this AM, waking-up P who had already woken during the night, generating a BIG FAT BOO from me. Anyway, it reminded me that my favorite place to be was also watching my kids try, sometimes even succeeding. What a great feeling.
4) I can’t get all gushy on this. I’m still a material girl and I LOVE my new can opener! It cuts so easily, and doesn’t leave an edge just waiting to slice an awaiting digit. I use a lot of #10 cans from the cannary and I tell you by using those cans over and over I feared risking my life. No more. Ok, people don’t usually die from cuts to their finger. I repeat, usually. You just never know. 🙂 I do believe it was the #1 can opener from America’s Test Kitchen. Maube they will be a favorite next week. 🙂
In other news, I plan on doing the EXACT opposite of this blog on my fitness blog right after I publish this. There’s just some things that a person can hate about being healthy (ok, you might not hate being HEALTHY, but maybe a part of the lifestyle that just isn’t your favorite). Come tell me yours. 🙂
