A Few of My Favorite Things

I know not everyone is enjoying the recent heat and humidity! I have heard lots of my neighbors complaining. I was raised in Kentucky, so temperatures in the upper 90’s with high humidity is a very familiar experience. I don’t mind sweating, but I have never gotten used to the New England winters. I get so cold! I am very thankful for this weather. It is one of my favorite things. This led me to think of the song These are a few of my favorite things from the musical The Sound of Music. I have tweaked the lyrics – just for fun.

Raindrops on grass

And cuddles with kittens,

Clean kitchen counters

And bright matching mittens.

Amazon boxes

Stacked up with new books

These are a few of my favorite things.


Brown colored puppies

And crisp toasted bagels

Garden chimes, wind chimes

And Pho with rice noodles,

Bald eagles that fly

Past the lake with great ease,

These are a few of my favorite things.


Me in a tank top with blue denim jean shorts,

Snowflake less weather and absence of ice-forts,

Images of winters that melt into spring

These are a few of my favorite things.


When the ice builds,

When the snow flies,

When I’m feeling sad.

I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I don’t feel so bad!

I really hope my creative twist on an old favorite brings a smile. I know there may be other things going on in your lives that are much more serious than the heat. I send loving thoughts and energy in your direction. May you also remember some of your favorite things and may these memories help with the difficulties and challenges that you are experiencing.
It is my wish for each of you to lighten your day. I would love to see if any of you get creative too!!!!
