Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things - Reprise


It's time for another Sunday Rerun hosted by Chari over at "Happy to Design." This time I'm rerunning a post which I first posted on May 9, 2007.

These are a few of my favorite things in no particular order:

***My grandchildren :-)

***Football - - -college, pro, classic, the draft - - - - you get the picture, the whole shebang!!!

***Comfy jammies - - -got 'em on right now!!

***New school supplies

***Lilacs in the spring (and that's all I'll say about that)

***A sparkling clean house - - - notice I didn't say I liked TO CLEAN - - - just that I like it to BE clean (and it ISN'T right now, and it's driving me nuts!)

***Clean laundry (ditto the clean house disclaimer)

***Soft, fly-away hair on the top of a baby's head, which goes right along with the freshly bathed baby smell - - -

***Blogging - - - writing blogs, reading blogs, commenting on blogs!! Whooo Hoooo for blogs!!!

***Time to call my own - - - I fill it with reading a good book, or napping, or watching football, or blogging or - - -

***"Grazing" at a buffet - - - preferably a potluck type meal where all the items are crafted with love in someone ELSE'S kitchen.

***Organized paper money - - - all denominations in ascending order, heads up, all facing the same direction, no wrinkles. Ahhhhh - - - the satisfaction!!!

***Nostalgic memories - - - traditions, family times, school days - - - all of it

***Jig saw puzzles - - - not just any kind, my favorites are "folky" art pictures so I can get at least one finished a day when I'm on vacation.

***New snow - - - no foot prints, no smuts, lots of diamond sparkles

***A sunny day at Vanderbilt Beach, Naples, FL

***DeBrand chocolate

***Playing Euchre with good friends

***Good friends

***Wisconsin Northwoods - - - especially Gull Lake and Hayward.

***Time spent in a porch swing or deck chair

***YOU leaving comments on my blog :-)

And this new addition on May 10, 2009:

***YOU choosing to follow my blog. :-)

Hmm. Are you *sure* your grandchildren are at the top of the list just randomly in no particular order? ;)

I miss lilacs. Maybe I can ask you to inhale one for me?

Keetha Broyles said...

Damselfly - - - the lilac blooms are nearly gone in this part of the world. We don't have a bush in our yard, mores the pity, so I have to settle for enjoying them through my car window. But I'll give them an adoring and longing look for you too as I pass by in the morning on my way to church!!!!

Chandy said...

Good list. I think you must like football as much as I do. I really much prefer college to pro, but we subscribe to the NFL Sunday Package on DirecTV, so we've always got a game on. Hope the Cowboys can turn it around soon.

Re your corn story. We got the biggest laugh out of that.

Happy Mother's Day.

Unknown said...

Happy Mother's Day. That is a great list.

Unknown said...

Wow what a list. Now I wonder what a psychologist would say about your personality based on your list? Or anyone's list for that matter. I love it.

Keetha Broyles said...

Oh girls - - - isn't this blogging thing just the "funnest?!?" I feel like you are all part of my fam - my BLOGGING family!!!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you too.

There's nothing better than (even fairly faithful) readers.

Carol said...

I'm with you on so many of those things!

Julie said...

I love your list! Comfy pj's-it just doesn't get much better than that-of course you need cozy socks with the pj's! I love a clean house too, but hate to clean.

And the soft baby hair-I think I'll go snuggle with my baby right now!

BTW: I love your new header!

Keetha Broyles said...

Thanks about my new header, Julie!!!
