5 Favorite things......

(one of my favorites)
So, I have been tagged!  I feel like Sally Field at the Oscars!  My new friend over at Moments of Perfect Clarity tagged me for a "Meme" - of which I actually had to look up in a dictionary.  It was obvious what my task was, list 5 categories with 5 favorite things...... this I could do, however, I was not sure how it related to a "MEME"....but, here I go......but, first, I have to say this was VERY hard.  I don't normally analyze what my favorites are....I am pretty easy to please, therefore, it's easier to pick out things I don't like than it is to say what my favorite is......except when it comes to things like chocolate - that I know is a 'favorite' but, to pick out a favorite book or song or movie film....for me, it depends on what's going on in my life as to what is my 'favorite' - I do have a favorite Niece, but, she is technically, my only niece, so, I'm sure that doesn't count and I have a favorite breed of dog, but, that's because at this time in my life, I have a Dauchsund.....so, this list took all day yesterday to write and I still don't feel like I've picked any real favorites.....I guess I'm just fickle!  So, with no further delay, MEME:
