I know it isn't Christmas but I can listen to this song year round.   I believe it's my favorite song in the whole world.  Enjoy!
Thanks for sending it to me Sandra!

Valentine's Swap

Once upon a time, oh wait this isn't a fairytale - it's real - there was a Valentine swap hosted by the wonderful  Miz Mollye and I received a fabulous swap from Peggy from Day of the Lily   

We were to take a clear 2 liter plastic soda bottle, cut through it enough to fill it with goodies, and send it through the mail.  I was so excited when mine arrived that I forgot to take a picture before I opened it LOL  But here are the goodies

Two pairs of fun Valentine socks, two lovely hearts, some of my favorite kinds of tea bags, and a pretty little crocheted or tatted (sorry Peggy don't know which) cross, wrapped with a beautiful piece of ribbon around a yummy little hand cream.  How lucky am I?  What a fun swap this was and thanks Miz Mollye for thinking of it.  Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Listening #2 - The Top Ten

Keep in mind that LISTEN is my word for the year.  Today I'm channeling David Letterman with the top ten things I like to listen to (or as says - "to give attention with the ear") - in no particular order.

the crackling of a fire
a baby's laugh
water running over stones in a creek
a gentle wind rustling leaves in the trees
frogs croaking at night when darkness first falls
the sizzling of bacon in a cast iron pan
birds singing in the yard
the quiet of a sunrise
the words "I love you" when they mean "you matter"
horses nickering
What is your top one thing you like to listen to?
