My Favorite Things

As my last post was a little depressing, here is one a little bit more up-lifting.

One of my fondest memories is watching the Sound of Music each year when it aired on TV around the holidays. It wasn’t the subject matter of the movie so much as the music that I loved. On of my favorites is "My Favorite Things" that Julie Andrews sings to the Van Trap children in the movie. Here are the lyrics to remind you of that special song.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

After reading through those lyrics again, I decided that I should make my own list of favorite things and staying with the theme of things and not people here is my list.

Shells on the beach
Sun in the sky
Green tea in a clear coffee mug
A scone lying near by

A clock that goes tic toc
Wisteria on the vine
Fingerpainting while drinking
A glass of red wine

Juicy pears and crisp apples
Leaves in the Fall
Warm and fuzzy blankets
Buddy playing with his ball

Gemstones of every color
In purple, red and blue
Rubies are my favorite
I bet you have one too

What are your favorite things? Have a good day.
