What are a few of your favorite things?

One of the comfyest things is getting back into bed on a cold morning... the warmth and softness and knowing you get to go back to sleep! One of my favorite little things. 😍

So what's a little thing that brings you happiness?

Oh, I forgot to add baking.
I really enjoy baking.

@pepperjones Yes! I just made brown sugar and vanilla cookies, cranberry orange scones, and dark chocolate raspberry cupcakes with homemade butter cream frosting.

Baking makes me happy.

@pepperjones I'm trying not to eat them all before t-day.
Ugh!

@Donotbelieve I'm not much of a baker. In fact I have one cake that I can pull off with any sort of consistency - Torta Caprese. Luckily, it's fucking delicious.

@MrBeelzeebubbles Tell me more. What is in this torta?

What she said.

@Donotbelieve
200g dark chocolate, finely chopped. The good stuff, 80% cocoa. Use a knife, it gives a better texture than a food processor.
4 eggs.
170g castor sugar.
1 teaspoon vanilla essence - the nice stuff with seeds in.
250g ground almonds
200g melted butter.

Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla until it's pale and the beater leaves a trail of goo on the surface - about 10 minutes.

GENTLY fold in the almonds, butter and chocolate.

Line the base of a 24cm round tin with baking paper, and generously butter the sides of the tin.

Mixture goes in, into an oven at 170°C for 45-50 minutes.

Let it cool a bit, dust with icing sugar, goes great with clotted cream, raspberries and port.

Sorry, I only think in metric.

Edited

@MrBeelzeebubbles Not a problem.

Several things actually.

  • The warmth of a dog fresh from the dryer

  • Teasing the homeless with offers of money then not giving it to them

  • The reassurance I feel knowing that Donald J. Trump is in the White House and is Making America Great Again with his wisdom and leadership.

But my most favorite thing to do:

  • Posting bullshit to the internet.

An afternoon spend smoking hookah in my back patio. When the wind picks up the wind-chimes make a little tunes. And then the turtles come out of the woods to eat my grass.
That's an afternoon well spend.

When I wake up thinking of someone, grab my phone to text them, and find a text from them waiting for me.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

From The Sound of Music

when the dog bites when the bee stings when I'm feeling sad I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel sooooo bad . My mom was into the musicals

@Besalbub I saw the movie when I was nine. My parents bought me the soundtrack and of course I played it to death. It was actually my first album.

@mooredolezal It was on several years ago I think for an anniversary and they did a segment on the film location which has become a tourist destination . I didn't have to play it my mom took care of that . My sister cleaning up for mom threw all the albums out including my dads big band and jazz albums

@Besalbub sorry to hear that, I still have my album. BTW The Sound of Music was on tour last year. I saw it last fall.

Working on a project, going on 10 mile hike, making some art, sitting on my non-existent butt and playing video games. Those things definitely bring me happiness. There's also just lounging around with the cats.

Dogs looking out car windows, or sitting on the passenger seat all serious, like they're helping navigate

Tending my vegetable garden, painting and cuddling are a few of my favorite things.

@pepperjones How about painting and cuddling... or painting while cuddling? 😉

Since it will be in the 20's, I will be doing that tomorrow with my sweetheart.

Other than that, sharing so much together including traveling, music, an appreciation of good beer.smile009.gif

Going to get some steamed crabs tonight!

Dude, a cup of coffee and a cigarette on the patio first thing in the morning on a warm spring day... Heaven.

My collection of throwing knives.
The thunk a knife makes into a solid log round end grain target.
Seeing improvement in techniques, learning new things.
Kayaking, on a perfect summers day.
Pug dogs.

A fire, a large amount of trees around me, some geography that isn't horizontal, and one or two good people.
