My Favourite Things

Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein

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 strudels
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


I'm in a bad mood today all day because of frustrations at work. But this song is right - thinking about things I like helps!

What are some of your favourite things?

I have lots.. some of it includes.. chocolate lava cake, a cup of hot floral tea, a good book, a breezy evening, a pair of comfy and pretty new shoes, the sound of waves, cheery flowers in the garden and freshly baked cakes..

My fav is digging in the garden when my mood is not right. Your hb can bake so well, the cupcake looks so delicious!

The ones in the song are some of my fav too! Oh, I was in a bad mood early this week too. Thank goodness it is Wednesday already! Hope you're feeling better.

Hi Milka, Digging in the garden! I'd like that too I think... if I have a garden. LOL. For now, digging in pots also makes me happy. :)

I feel better, Ting.. but still not great! :)

What a coincidence! I have been in a bad mood since Monday. But I feel better today... somewhat.

I will find all the pest in my garden when my mood is not right!
Your husband bake cake? Wow!
Hope you're feeling better now.

Malar - Her husband does not bake cakes... her husband makes edible works of art. :-)

Thanks Petunia! The Husband was very flattered! I hope you are better now :)
