A Few Of My Favorite Things

Good evening and I am so glad to have you Through My Back Door. The coffee is on,  (DD decaf this late in the day) and it is always good to have you visit. There is nothing like good friends and a cup of coffee. Or tea, or hot chocolate, or the drink of your choice. Myself I love a good cup of coffee in the evening. It has been a pleasant day today here in East Tn, but I understand we are to get some more snow the first of the week. I can take it if the temps are not teens or single digits. Those single digits about did me I told someone those temps  had messed with my good personality and they laughed! In disbelief!lol Trace did a post on her favorite things and I thought why not follow her lead. Nothing like copying someone who knows what they are doing.Granny Trace Scraps & Squares.
Anyway a lot has happened in the last week here. Peyton didn't get another super bowl ring, Deb had a birthday, a special friend of mine passed away, and I worked at the Speckled Hen today. I hadn't done that in quite a while. I must say it was fun seeing all the new things as well as the people.
 Valentines Day is next week so I am sharing one more heart. It is a heart made of stone. The worlds best son in law bought Deb and me one. 
 This is a heart stepping stone beside my front porch. I love it. It was almost dark when I took this, so I apologize for it not being such a clear picture. It is one of my favorite things.
Before I go onto my  favorite things and reds, I want to share this picture of Mollie. She spent the day with me yesterday and found my basket of wool Audra had sent me. Tombstone Tidings
She loved it. SO I snapped a couple of pictures of her.(Imagine that)
She kept saying, "It is so soft". It really is, just beautiful. Then she started saying,"Baa Baa Black Sheep". The basket has some dark wool in it. She is definitely one of my favorite "things".lol

  Winter door box and red door.  Deb was reading where red doors were the sign of hospitality long ago. I hope people still think that today.
Not red, but some of my favorite things.
Red settle made by a now deceased friend. I love this little thing
My dinner bell that my Daddy bought.
My old red smoke house.
My cow bell. I think you know the story.
Red shutters and a red pump in the snow. Oh I have lots more reds and lots more favorite things, but I think you are tired of seeing it tonight, so thank you for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Thanks  for Debs birthday wishes. She had a wonderful birthday
PSS: I hope spring comes soon, especially for you all who are measuring your snow in feet. I can't believe I have the nerve to complain when you all are dealing with that. However my friend Lyn Dee says, they are equipped to deal with it and in the south we aren't.
PSSS: I have a problem, I sent a package to Afghanistan almost 4 weeks ago and it isn't there yet. I am so afraid it is lost, and I really wanted this young man to receive it. I am bummed
I need to add one more thing that has very quickly become a favorite. My jar of memories or praises.
Can't tell you my family, how much this has meant to me. It has become my favorite thing.
