My Favorite Things, Haiku-style

There’s just something about this time of year that gets me thinking about My Favorite Things. I think it’s the warm woolen mittens, the snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes, and the silver white winter we’re having (For a few days we have silver white winter.) Or maybe it’s the sleigh bells that do it.

My Favourite Things

Artist: Julie Andrews

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
SILVER WHITE WINTERS that melt into spring
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!

(These lyrics are from

So, My Favorite Things is my inspiration for today’s Haiku.

I totally LOVE spending lots of time at Barnes and Noble, looking through books with my girls, and, this time of year, possibly enjoying a gingerbread latté!

Books are “where it’s at”.

Let’s browse to our hearts’ content

And then a latté

So good to see you!

Let’s eat first; buffet’s ready

Then talk, sing, laugh, games

Music at our house:

Violins, chanter, voices,

Guitar, soft strumming

PJs and cocoa.

Get out the games; let’s play cards.

Girls night IN the house.

Haiku Friday

For more Haiku, visit Jennifer over at Playgroups are No Place for Children and Christina at A Mommy Story.

    Thanks so much, Janet and Mishelle. I love the cartoons, too. I found them as clip art. It would be great to credit the artist, but I don’t know how to track down that info.
