These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens" ~ Glenda style. (no kittens on my favorites list) 

Here are a few of my current favorite things ...

1. While you are shopping for school supplies, pick up for yourself, my new favorite pen.

The Infinity Write Tool by "The Write Dudes" is a great fine point pen. I love how smooth it writes and it does not bleed through the page when I underline in my Bible. I found it at Target and it is much less expensive than my former favorite pen.

2. Making birthday treats for our daughters with gluten and sugar intolerance has been a challenge, until we discovered the Baby Cakes cookbooks. I turned our favorite cake recipe into cupcakes for Christy's birthday.

They are also vegan, so if that is a need in your family, you will love this cookbook.

3. And I have saved the best for last. I just cannot get enough of our almost five month old grand baby. I took this picture last week and it is my new favorite.

Those cheeks, those eyes, that nose and lips and her fingers ... oh my. There is no favorite that compares to this one. She is a delight.

What are your favorite things this summer?



  1. As you know, I've had a pretty awesome summer, but one of my favorite days so far has been hanging out with YOU! I love our days together! xoxo

  2. Love these! Ain't got not current faves. Soon, I hope.

  3. My favorite things so far this summer:
    1. Having our eldest son home for a few days.
    2. Tomatoes
    3. Spending time with friends.

    I'm also happy to have you pen recommendation. I've yet to find a pen that doesn't bleed through fine paper. And, I can see how that blue-bonneted baby is your favorite thing!!


  4. Shopping at Target tomorrow, I will be looking for that pen! Love your list, Glenda, especially that sweet baby. Grandchildren are at the top of my list...our 7th is due any time now. The beach is also on my list... Heading there for the day on Sunday with most of my family and some friends. I love people and couldn't imagine it any other way. Blessings to you this lovely Wednesday!

  5. Glenda, thanks for the writing tool information; I LOVE me some pen and paper! My favorite things...going to churn butter tomorrow at the county fair and next week going to visit family where youngest nephew is coming home and bringing his wife and 6 month old daughter. She's the first baby in the family since her daddy was born, almost 30 years ago and we're going to spoil her rotten!

  6. No kittens on my list either! I can see why your sweet baby made the list. Beautiful big eyes! My new favs are Starbucks black tea, iced with a 1/2 pump of raspberry, a perfect-size antique crystal goblet my sister gifted me for my morning tea and sitting on Melanie's porch. ~Pamela

  7. Kittens are always on my list, but my days of having a kitten are long gone. I promised my sweetheart I would not 'beg' for another kitten. My favorites this summer are bits of time away with my sweetheart, our eight great grandkids, blue skies and gentle summer breezes and progress on the restoration of my vintage trailer. And a myriad of other small things!

  8. A day without doctors or dentists, vertigo, therapy, or trips to the drugstore. Enthusiasm of grandsons. Ball games. Dreams for a better future...

  9. precious baby! I bought coconut flour for my is a baking challenge...I/ followed a recipe but me oh my.

    My favorites :"Things" kittens and donkeys...hope and health...pens & paper...cloth and threads...good food...gardens and water and fresh air
