I’ve always loved the song.

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

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudel
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 spring
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

I never noticed before how it seems to go from Fall around to Summer again!

Several of my own favorites below also have an Autumn tinge to them…

I’m not going to include pictures on purpose so that you can see them as you wish in your own mind’s eye.

  • fleece or flannel-lined jeans
  • 3M scrub pads
  • pure maple syrup (sweetness from deep inside a tree…why *wouldn’t* this be good?!!)
  • pansies on an overcast day
  • addictively popping bubblewrap
  • popping those canisters of instant dough
  • wheat bread with nuts
  • chocolate croissants, tomatoes (not together)
  • piles of puppies
  • sweeping, diaphanous skirts
  • the still eyes of a deer
  • heaps of golden yellow leaves against green grass
  • a handwritten note with a meaningful stamp

Would anyone like to make a song out of these? Anyone??

What are your favorite things?!?
