Favorite Thing to Do in Free Time

Every person has their own likes and dislikes. People usually want to spend their free time by doing their favorite things. In my free time I like to do certain things depending on the weather and my mood. Once it's heat and sunny i favor to travel into the woods and fish at a lake or typically ride my bike. Once it's rainy and dark i will be able to browse or watch tv and typically proceed the web with hot snacks and a cup of coffee.

I like reading books a lot both fiction and non-fiction. In my free time I always dedicate some time to reading. Sometimes on rainy days I love to sit alone in my balcony looking at sky. I just love the color and texture of clouds and environment. I am a great fan of first rains smell too. 

It feels like most folks share a typical and basic interest of taking parts in sports or exercise and victimization some variety of technology. I feel it's as a result of it's the items we tend to were raised with and what's acquainted to North American nation. Most folks conjointly prefer to pay time with others.

My Favorite Things

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

My Favorite Things

The song was first introduced by Mary Martin and Patricia Neway in the original Broadway production and sung by Julie Andrews in the 1965 film.

In the musical, the lyrics to the song are a reference to things Maria loves, such as 'raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens'. These are the things she selects to fill her mind with when times are bad.

The original Broadway musical places this song in the Mother Abbess's office, just before she sends Maria to serve Captain von Trapp's family as governess to his seven children. However, Ernest Lehman, the screenwriter for the film adaptation, repositioned this song so that Maria would sing it with the children during the thunderstorm scene in her bedroom, replacing "The Lonely Goatherd," which had originally been sung at this point. Many stage productions also make this change, shifting "The Lonely Goatherd" to another scene.
The first section of the melody has the distinctive property of using only the notes 1, 2, and 5 (Do, Re, and Sol) of the scale. Rodgers then harmonized this same section of the melody differently in different stanzas, using a series of minor triads one time and major triads the next.

The song ends with a borrowed line of lyric and notes from Rodgers' earlier composition with Lorenz Hart, "Glad to Be Unhappy," a standard about finding peace in the midst of unrequited love. Using the same two notes for the phrasing of "so sad" in the original song, Rodgers brings the gloom of my "Favorite Things" to a similar upbeat ending – "and then I don't feel so bad."

What do you get if....

you lick a chocolate Easter egg.... Fat that's what. Why am I telling you this ? ... because despite being a really good girl (apart from that little lick) and eating healthy nonfattening stuff, suffering a naughty tummy bug for a few days which meant I didn't know which way was up and exercising too(which in my book is usually a sweary word) HAVE I lost a measly 1lb??.. you can bet my sorry little (rephrase that !! BIG) rear end I definitely did not. To say I am gutted is the understatement of the century. All of those Easter eggs that DG would have gladly shared with me were untouched by my fair hands...

Next is a GORGEOUS atc that my lovely crafting buddy Chriss made for me... it's a little joke because she watched me at Butterfly world follow one butterfly round and round with my camera for an age... but he just wouldn't stay still long enough for me to take a photo... maybe I smelled funny...I don't know but he was havin' none of it. I will get him next time though supposing I have to stay there all day. Unless he has gone to butterfly Heaven by then... don't know how long Butterflies live actually!!
