Do You Have A Favorite Place?

I’ve decided to make Favorite Places a regular weekly feature on my blog. As we travel around there are so many spots that we simply stop and enjoy. I snap some pictures and write a few words so I’ll remember the uniqueness of that place.

The fun is in sharing that time with others. Perhaps you have some favorite places and would like to join in. Here are some suggestions to jog your memory. I’m sure there are many more.

  • Favorite Places at Home: a comfy chair, a spot in the kitchen, a desk,your workshop or sewing room, or outside in the garden, the porch swing.
  • Favorite Places while on Vacation or at Leisure: the lake, picnic spot, playground, amusement park, a national park, a campground, a hiking trail, a mountain, a waterfall, a golf course or soccer field.
  • Favorite Places that Feed Your Obsession: bookstores or library, knit shops, fabric shops, craft stores, boutiques or shoe stores or malls.
  • Favorite Places at Work: your cubbie or desk, the lunchroom, a co-worker’s area, a conference room.

Let’s do this every Monday. Grab your camera, take some photos and upload them to your blog. Write a bit about why this place is special. Tell us something about the place – how it makes you feel, what it tastes or smells like – how it affects your senses. Come back and post your link in the comment section. We’ll all come and visit and share your Favorite Place with you. 

Here’s one of my Favorite Places. I feel the need to show this to my daughter back in Indiana. She’s just been through a miserable ice storm. This is Saguaro National Park devoted to native cactus in Arizona. It’s located just east of Tucson. About this time of year the cactus are blooming. I hope you warm up a bit.

    Yeah, Thanks Mom…My favorite place right now would be anywhere warm. This ice storm was bad. But it is all melting now. The good thing about Indiana weather, If you dont like it give it a few minutes it will change. 😀

    ONE of my favorite places is on the beach. In California, any beach in California. The flowery smell of California mixed with the salt water smell is heavenly.

    But curled up in my bed with the electric blanket on and reading a good book…Cats curled up purring away is my favorite place to be when I cant get out of the state.

    I like your favorite place. Have never seen these cactus before, only on t.v. land and in magazines. They look huge. I am in Indiana also. We got the snow instead of the ice. We got 8 or 9 inches of white stuff when this storm went through. I have decided to join in your feature of Favorite Places. I have posted a photo of my favorite place. Have a great day!!


    P.S. Thanks for the link to the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge.

    I like this idea and will follow along! I’m not sure how often I’ll join in, but I will be reading.

    My favorite place is curled up in bed under the comfy flannel sheets on a dreary and cold day when I don’t have to work and don’t have to get up until I feel like it. The only way to get me out of that favorite place is for my hubby to sick the kittens on me.

    Thanks for stopping by the Monday Movie Meme – watching a good movie while curled up in said bed ensures that I will stay there all day :0)
