These are a few of my favorite things......

Sort of makes you want to break out in song, doesn't it?!  hehehe

I was chit chatting with Lola today.  I had strapped on the snowshoes today (thanks Greg) and picked up the walking poles (thanks Jon and Sarah) and journeyed out in the snow. On the way out to the woods I told her how she is one of my favorite things about my yard. She told me she already knew that, and  so I pushed off and walked over by Jacpot to give him a little rub on the nose!  Another one of my favorites things.

Lola is admittedly a little jealous of Jacpot as I talk to him at least twice a day, but she will get over it!  :)

So, this was the theme that I settled on for my photo-taking. Favorite things.  It was one of those days that I photographed nothing new, nothing totally special, but still got some really nice pictures...   of some really great stuff!
Favorite tree!

Abandoned houses- deserving of preservation

Favorite abandoned house- the stone house. 
Ghost house outlined against the trees

I love these landmarks on my walking paths.....  the seasonal changes happen so gradually, and there is beauty in all of the times of the year.

Textures in nature are definitely some of my favorite things- the cool, white, glistening snow, the soft golden grass, the persistent greens of the conifers.  All beautiful things that are easy to overlook.

I absolutely love the way that snow outlines the branches of trees, and it is a hard thing to capture the look that I want.  These two pictures come kind of close, even though not quite like I envision.

Little cabin in the woods was looking quite fetching today, especially that nice reflection in the window!

A favorite thing of mine is to try and find unusual vignettes that might be overlooked, or trying to see things from a different point of view or angle.

Love the landscapes- try to always find a little different angle on the usual.  Another favorite thing of  mine is the blue sky and sun!!
I would be remiss if I didn't include my girl, Lola!  This pic is from last weekend, she only has slightly less snow on her hat now!

Of course this is not an exhaustive list of my favorite things, but what I came across today.  Tomorrow will hold another adventure, another walk, another chance at a photo opportunity, another joy-filled day.

Until next time, be a joy giver!!
