I'm not sure why, but I've been craving
Julie Andrews lately.
Goodness, she's sensational.
I think it's mainly because I've been having the soundtrack from
"The Sound of Music" in my head nonstop.
For instance, "How do you solve a problem like Maria" was in my head almost all day on monday.
(except naturally I had to replace 'maria' with alyssa) I couldn't seem to do anything right.
It just seemed a very fitting song for the day.
Later in the week, when I was feeling rather gloomy,
I found myself singing "My Favorite Things" in order to cheer myself up.
Then, while I was preparing a fabulous dinner, the soft while snow falling delicately out the window, I started singing my own variation of "Sixteen going on Seventeen" to get Gideon's attention.
I suppose my ways of flirting with my husband are odd.
As I was showering, I caught myself singing the famous song which starts,
"Doe a dear, a female dear..."
And as I was trying to get myself to fall asleep last night,
I found success only by humming the beautiful tune of "Edelweiss".
Oh, sweet Julie Andrews,
I truly hope you know how utterly fabulous you are.
