These Are a Few of My Favorite Things .... (Tony Bennett singing)

(Not that it makes any difference who's singing the song)   This phrase has been running through my head for a day or two now, and I had an epiphany this morning - why not post about my favorite things?  Favorite things as of this very moment - very little thought, kinda free-association stuff. 


Besides the obviously self-centered assumption that anyone cares what's on this list, I WANT to care.  I want to see this post every time I log onto my LJ, to remind myself of how many truly wonderful things I take for granted everyday; things that - when I take the time to notice - bring me that little tummythrill of happiness that makes glad to be me, healthy and alive for today.

From the title, you may assume many of these pieces of minutia will be "of the season."  There will also be more than one tie, just in case anyone is a stickler for, "but you said favorite!"  Life is complicated, I like to flatter myself by assuming my taste is marginally complicated.  ;)
