A few of my Favourite 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!  If you've ever watched The Sound of Music with Julie Andrews, you'll know of the song, "A Few of my Favourite Things." As Maria is going to bed one by one the children wander into her room because they are scared of the thunder storm outside, to calm them and keep their minds off of the storm she sings them this song. And now here are a few of my favourite things:
  • twirly skirts/dresses
  • curling up to a good book beside a raging fireplace with hot milk
  • old fashioned buttons
