My Favourite Things

Raindrops on roses, at my neices 18th birthday party.

Rainbows, outside our house yesterday.

Funny notes that my kids have written.

A cream tea, in the shade, by a large millpond after a long, hot, sandy day at the beach.

All an excuse to look back at old photos, and not feel so bad that winter is a-coming.

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


  1. One of my favourite things was afternoon tea with Justine and fellow bloggers. Life is made up of those favourites patched together with the less favourite but remember the favourites.

  2. Memories can be painfully sweet. I loved the letter.

  3. Enid - Thank you, me too, my zebra is on my key ring to remind me.
    GOTJ - It made me laugh when I found it, I just had to take a photo.
