A Great Start




Trifextra prompt:  In 1959, Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote the music for the Broadway production, The Sound of Music.  One of the most famous songs from the musical is "My Favorite Things." Since its inception, the song has been covered by countless artists, and we're asking you to follow suit. Give us a few of your favorite things, in whichever form you want, in 33 words exactly.  (Link above will bring you to the song's lyrics, if you're not familiar with the tune.)  I am more partial to the classics, like Guys and Dolls, Singing in the Rain, and My Fair Lady, but I will try.





I sit in my cozy chair,
with
A hot cup of coffee,
A warm puppy
curled in my lap,
A cat purring near the window, while
My son's giggles
careen through the house.

  10. This was my weekend exactly minus my son's giggles. They are now young men however they spent the holiday together and I'm sure there was a lot of laughter to be had!
