My Favorite Things

Being a fan of musical theatre, my head breaks into song when I hear that phrase... my favorite things.  Well, I rather like brown paper packages and whiskers on kittens, but I'm not crazy about doorbells and sleigh bells.


But here are a few of my favorite things:

Brain Based Learning!  I'm fascinated by how the brain works, and can't get enough information on how to use the latest research on how the brain learns best!  It's such powerful information as a teacher, and they're always finding new stuff!
                                

Another favorite? 



My daughter's homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!  She was just home for a day and a half, and found time to bake some cookies for me before she went back to Boston!

Another favorite?


Kids with Patriotism!
These are some of the decorations we made for Memorial Day.  We figured they can stay up through Flag Day!

And yet another favorite thing:


I've always loved musical theatre!  I love being in shows as well as watching them!  Two of the favorites I've done are:



I was Connie ("Four foot ten...")

I was Sister Amnesia. (The one who had a duet with a puppet, that lost her memory because a crucifix fell on her head.)

Two of my favorite shows I've seen are:  
I can't listen to the music without sobbing!

I know every word to every song, and always sing along!  Come to think of it, I know the words to almost every song of almost every musical, except the ones that came out in the last couple of years!  It's something that has continued to give me joy, throughout all the different "chapters" of my life!

There was a time when I was heavily involved in theatre!  I used to leave school about 4:00, lean over a Lean Cuisine, go to an aerobics class, then go to a rehearsal for a few hours.  Then I'd often go out for a drink with cast members after rehearsal!

This all slowed down about 19 years ago.  (Did I mention my daughter was 19?)  After my divorce, I got back into doing shows, and by the time she was 8, my daughter was doing shows with me!

After my stroke (2 years ago) I just don't have the stamina to live that life, so I go to shows my daughter is in, and that keeps me happy.  (She's incredible!)

So these are a few of my favorite things... what are yours?
