Favorite Things

It's true that some of the best things in life are free. In a time where everyone is cutting back on expenses where they can, I thought I'd reflect on some of my favorite things that cost very little (at least monetarily; they may cost some time and effort). Here's a quick list, in no particular order:

-A bed with freshly laundered sheets
-A great cup of coffee
-Homegrown tomatoes
-Watching SEC football--especially Alabama football
-Leaves changing color in the fall
-Baby giggles
-A Saturday with no set plans, where I don't have to be anywhere at any particular time
-Coming home to a crockpot percolating with some yummy soup or stew
-Taking a nap on a rainy Sunday afternoon
-Getting a really good scalp massage from the shampoo girl at the salon
-Hearing the crack of a bat at a baseball game
-Diving into a new book

What would you add to the list?

Great list!! A lot of those would make mine as well. (Might have to learn to like football after we get moved to AL.)

I guess I'd add:
- a meal shared with friends (oh heck, just about anything shared with friends)
- a clean kitchen/house
- snuggling with my kids (or the Great Dane)
- a fresh Dell crossword puzzle book

Yes, Karen, you will definitely have to adapt to a football-crazy state when you move here! When and to where are you moving?

Hubby is retiring from AF in December, and we are planning on moving to the Huntsville area. He is there this week interviewing.
