A few of my favourite things

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

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 so bad."

Does anyone remember this song?Sound of Music and Maria....Oh I love the songs of this movie.Each of them can bring out a different emotion and most songs evoke various emotions...Well this one and "So long...Farewell" are my favourites...

I was talking to a really old friend of mine after ages and we chatted about how cold it is and how amazing it would be to be under a blanket for the whole day (wishes ...mmmmmm)..SO I decided to make a list (Remember :I love lists) things I love/like..So here goes:

  1. Cold winter morning or wake up while its raining.Warm blanket.Hot coffee and a sweet conversation with a nice friend.Or Sweet music in the background and a good book to read.
  2. Getting wet in the rain
  3. Eating ice cream while getting wet in the rain
  4. Getting wet in the rain with a friend and laughing at others sharing umbrellas [Remember Kittu]
  5. A small kid in my arms and then he/she smiles :D
  6. Hatching evil plans in sociology lectures with Hugo.
  7. Talking and meeting up my school friends (Rene, Dharo, Geetu ....Guys I love you )
  8. Having a really good night's sleep.
  9. Waking up in the morning to find a message or a missed call on my phone..Or waking up because someone is calling me. :) [Yeah Mr Hypocrite You made my day today :)]
  10. Getting a message everyday night from a friend(My sweet VandroBhaiya) just to say good night.
  11. Reading someone's blog and realising that they have made a mention of you (hopefully in a good way)
  12. Getting praise/flattery....who doesnt like that?
  13. Talking my heart out a friend in the train
  14. Hugging someone...or better someone hugging me..!! Especially when Im sad..I believe that the solution of every problem can begin and end with a HUG
  15. Getting gifts/flowers..I dont care if its virtual or real.Paid or free...I just love that you thought of me.
  16. Feeling cold hands on my neck *wink wink* ;)
  17. The radio starts playing your favourite song ..Better if its actually dedicated to you ;)
  18. Taking an actual good picture
  19. Someone taking a really good picture of you...Rarely happens with me :(

Im sorry I tried to make it only 10 things I love..But i guess it extended a bit :) I hope I can read your lists too.It really helps put things in perspective and then also lets people know what you like so they know what to do to "butter you up" ;)

lovely post. i know this will sound very cliched, but its very important to stop for a while to smell the roses. we are all too busy in our lives working, catching up deadlines, complaining, irritated and flustered ... the list is endless.

your post actually made me smile after a rather hectic morning.

p.s. maybe i ll make a similar list and mention you in my blog.
