Edition #12

13 things favorite things … in no random order and of course this isn’t a complete list.

1. The smell of clothes that dried on a clothesline on a spring day
2. The smell of sautéed chopped onions
3. That ice cold part of the bed
4. The smell of a Christmas tree in the living room
5. The first snowflakes in winter
6. A crackling campfire
7. Drinking Coca-Cola with lots of ice
8. The smell of a big box of crayons
9. Flying a kite on a really windy day
10. Getting in the car and driving with no destination
11. A baby’s deep, chortling laugh
12. The smell of really old books
13. The smell of fresh cut grass

Thursday Thirteen has come to an end.
I have enjoyed my visits here and consider us friends.
Thank you for sharing your thirteens with me.
The comments you left me filled me with glee.
It is hard to believe it is really true.
I am trying very hard to not be blue.
Happy TT'ing!

Mrs. Bee... I love watching fireflys in the summer, catching them in a jar too and ah yes the dandelions... always loved to pick them and blow the blooms off... funny thing... I still do both of those things.

A huge Thank you to Mrs. Bee for the nomination. And a huge Thank you to Sarge too for introducing us. Both of these people are gems!

Thank you Trav.... and you know what that does to me when you do that thing... ::THUD::

Yes Raggedy, I'm bummed about the end of Thursday Thirteen too... but as I always say, when one door closes another one opens... We will have another Thursday Meme... but probably won't be as fun...

Blogger Abigail S said ... (2/21/2007 10:25 PM) :

10) Probably the most relaxing thing in the world!

Great Thirteen!
