A Few of My Favorite Things

Much to my surprise on Sunday night the family member in charge of the TV remote actually stopped on The Sound of Music. Shocker. I kept my delight silenced since any kind of excitement on my end would surely cause continued channel surfing. We actually watched most of The Sound of Music. Together. On a Sunday night. In the same room. Switched to a cooking show during commercials. Was this was my Christmas gift a little early? As a result I have had those infamous catchy tunes singing in my head for a few days now.

So, these are a few of my favorite things...
