These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things {And Places}/ By Sarah

My Favorite Things – Julie Andrews – YouTube

I Admit: I love “The Sound Of Music”.
I love everything about it.
My aunt took me to see the movie when it first came out.
I learned the words to every song and couldn’t stop singing it.
Trouble was : I can’t SING.
Bobby use to watch it with me. It was NOT A FAVORITE OF HIS. Yet, he watched it with me every holiday season.
WHY?
Because he loved his mother.

Lyrics
“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
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”

My Favorite Things
lyrics © Concord Music Publishing LLC

As much as I wish I could decorate for each season like I would like to, I have learned to make do with a few special “things” each year.
Usually cheap and simple.
This year, It was buying 2 small couch pillows.
One with a Camper on it. RED.
Fits since we live and work at a state park with campers 365 days a year.

I love MUGS of all sizes.
I love my little areas throughout the house. My “niches”.
Watching the cows.
I spend hours watching the deer.
Cow Camp is one of my favorite places.
At
Lake Kissimmee State Park
Our 1870’s Historical Cow Camp
Lake Kissimmee State Park
Old Fashioned Record Players
YES,
I Love Elvis.
We have some special places with in a few miles of us.
This is the SWAMP WAGON
Hang Out
Literally, Across from the park.
The Swamp Wagon
I love finding NEW TO ME COOKBOOKS
Welcome To Lake Kissimmee State Park
Collier Farm Road
Our Mile Long Driveway
The Road Home
Almost Home
Christmas MUGS
The Color RED.
Hot Chocolate And Chai Tea Lattes.
Halloween
Gourds And Pumpkins.
Candle Light
The Lights shining from the house.
Not sure WHY they were all on.
Boat Rides
Beaches And Sandcastles
Our Sunset Spot
My Great Grandma’s Organ


I could go on and on.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Love From Our Neck Of the Woods,
Lake Kissimmee State Park
And Rolling Meadows Ranch,
Love And Hugs, Sarah
