A Few Of My Favorite Things

Joining up with The Gypsy Mama for another Five Minute Friday! Five Minute Friday is where we write on a given topic for five minutes only without editing--just for the joy of the creative experience. It's so much fun! I encourage you to give it a try! The prompt for this week is "A Few of My Favorite Things." Here goes:

My Favorite Things

Snuggles and cooking and bible's creased binding.
Date nights and journals to read for reminding.
Five-year old's drawing,
and smile that it brings.
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the kids fight,
When there's no sleep,
When I'm feeling cold,
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so...old!


So there's my homage to Julie Andrews and to one of my all-time favorite cheesy show tunes to belt out when the spirit moves me! Sorry, just couldn't resist. The song immediately popped into my head when I read the prompt so I ran with it! I would've kept going but that was all that came to me in 5 minutes. Apparently I'm not much of a lyricist lol! It's hard to come up with rhymes and meter when dealing with time constraints! (Who knew?!) Well, anyway, there it is. It was fun, and now that song is gonna be stuck in my head for the rest of day! :)

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. Haha! The song is stuck in my head, too. Love the lyrics! Very creative and just plain fun! :)

  2. I can hear you singing on key from here! I love date nights, too!

  3. That song popped into my head, but I sure did not think about putting in my own words to the song. Very creative. I am here from The Gypsy Mama.

  4. This is great!!!

    My family and I are planning to see this movie on the big screen in May!

  5. I love 5year old drawings and stories as well. They are certainly ones to keep. :)

  6. Oh I LOVE it! This song was the first, and nearly only! thing I could think of when I read the prompt. Love your version! :)

  7. That is the first thing I thought of when I saw today's five minute Friday is that song. How can you not love that song!

  8. I love that song! But I love your darling remake of it. Beautifully done. What wonderful things!

  9. Loved this! You're quite poetic for five minutes. I think we have some of the same favorite things. :)
