Song Lyric Sunday

Happy December…Y A Y   We had a wonderful Thanksgiving !!!  I hope all my blogger friends did too.  Family, food and so much fun, I am truly blessed.  I’ll post about all of the festivities later, now onto Song Lyric Sunday.

The prompt for today comes from Mr. Jim/newepicauthor “Chin/Ears/Eyes/Face/Mouth/Nose.”  Today’s Song will be, “These Eyes” by the Guess Who.  Really one of my fav’s a group from the 70’s. The husband just informed me that this band is still going, different members though.  Burton Cummings wrote many of the songs and Randy Bachman went onto (Bachman Turner Overdrive)…Just a little factoid i.e. trivia to pack away if you need it someday 😉 …

These Eyes
These eyes, cry every night for you
These arms, long to hold you again
The hurtings on me, yeah
I will never be free, no, my baby, no no
You gave a promise to me, yeah
And you broke it, and you broke it, oh no
These eyes watched you bring my world to an end
This heart could not accept and pretend
The hurtings on me, yeah
I will never be free, no, no, no
You took the vow with me, yeah
And you spoke it, and you spoke it, babe
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, cry every night for you
These arms, these arms long to hold you, hold you again
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Don’t ya know these…

Enjoy your Sunday blogger’s and all of the leftovers from turkey day.  Christmas is on its way.  Already have two Christmas movies under my belt, “We’re No Angels” starring Humphrey Bogart, Peter Ustinov and Aldo Rey.  Leo G. Carol was the shop keeper, from 1955.  Of course this is the first time I watched, “It’s A Wonderful Life !”  I know I’ll watch it a number of times this holiday season…Great Movie.
Weather is getting wonky, snow and cold and yes I’m afraid it’s winter.  We didn’t even get Indian Summer this year 😦 .

Share Your World, Y A Y

1. What did you have for dinner last night?  

 Went out and got a Cheeseburger from a favorite diner we go too…Love the milkshakes and cheeseburgers and fries of course ❤  The best was with my true love ❤

2.  Would you rather go out on a Saturday night or stay in?  

I would really rather stay in with my guy.  We just like to watch a good movie and snuggle.  It’s that time of year.   Of course if our hockey guys are in town then definitely go to the game !!!

3.  How are you, truthfully?   

Truthfully, I’m hanging in there.  Life’s not perfect but it’s okay.  I’m healthy and loved.  I have a warm place to live with my family.  I have great friends  and it’s the holidays.  Special time with my guys and our family grew so I have another girl to shop with Y A Y ❤

4. What’s the best topping/ice cream combination?  If you don’t eat ice cream, what’s your favorite combination dessert?  (Example: pie and ice cream or pie and whipped cream – that sort of answer)  

 I’m thinking just give me Rocky Road.  It doesn’t even need a topping it’s so good, Y U M  ❤

Share Your Gratitude with a thought (quote), a picture or a short paragraph.  Most of us have lots to be grateful for, more than we might realize.   Happy Thanksgiving and have a great week.

It’s been a grand year.  Whenever your family grows, it is such a special time ❤

Our New Family

An Important Lesson

One very important lesson that I have learned in my life is from the age old question, “When a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it fall does it make any noise ??”   The answer, drum roll please …  That would be a huge N O !!!   Tune out all of the noise.   Be happy and live your life,.  Happy Thanksgiving.  Blessings ❤ 

Song Lyric Sunday

I’m getting this done right out of the box this Sunday Morning…Good morning blogger’s, it’s Song Lyric Sunday Y A Y.  Really this is one of my favorite challenges.  Love, love, love it.  My Chicago Blackhawks are really killing it ❤ they won last night 7/2 down in Nashville.  Very impressive !!!  I digress, let’s get this posted …

Song Lyric Sunday prompt is Did/Didn’t/Do/Don’t/Does/Doesn’t…brought to us by Mr. Jim

The husband came up with this one and I was really surprised this was Manfred Mann who recorded this song and I felt a little old.  I’m not liking this age thing so much, but I’ll get use to it I suppose… 😉  

 

Do Wah Diddy Diddy (Remastered 2007)
There she was just a-walkin’ down the street, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Snappin’ her fingers and shufflin’ her feet, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
She looked good (looked good), she looked fine (looked fine)
She looked good, she looked fine and I nearly lost my mind
Before I knew it she was walkin’ next to me, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Holdin’ my hand just as natural as can be, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
We walked on (walked on) to my door (my door)
We walked on to my door, then we kissed a little more
Whoa-oh, I knew we was falling in love
Yes I did, and so I told her all the things I’d been dreamin’ of
Now we’re together nearly every single day, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
A-we’re so happy and that’s how we’re gonna stay, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Well, I’m hers (I’m hers), she’s mine (she’s mine)
I’m hers, she’s mine, wedding bells are gonna chime
Whoa-oh, I knew we was falling in love
Yes I did, and so I told her all the things I’d been dreamin’ of
Now we’re together nearly every single day, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
A-we’re so happy and that’s how we’re gonna stay, singin’ “Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do”
Well, I’m hers (I’m hers), she’s mine (she’s mine)
I’m hers, she’s mine, wedding bells are gonna chime
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, oh yeah
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do, we’ll sing it
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do, oh yeah, oh, oh yeah
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

Let’s enjoy the last day of the weekend and let’s have a great Monday.  Check back for Masterpiece Monday, the Artist has been working alot this weekend.  Blessings Blogger’s on your Sunday ❤ .

SoCS/Dream

#SoCS  I know I was suppose to get to this earlier but it’s been one of those days.  Probably because I didn’t start it with a plan.  I’m sorry  Mz. Linda I have wanted to do SoCS but my Saturday’s always seem to get away from me.  I’m not really even following the rules but I wanted to jump into this weekly #SoCS…

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

It’s been a busy day.  Haircut for the husband, dry cleaning, bank, coffee, and the dreaded post office ahhhh, yadayadayada. Still waiting for my package !!!  It was my Christmas Planner (TN) from India.  The house didn’t get to ground zero and didn’t get my planner layout done til tonight, but I’m so ready for tomorrow Y A Y.  #SoSC prompt for today is, “DREAM.”  Which could also be hope because living a life of gratitude, I still have many dream’s and look forward to everyday ❤  I also love music so I just had to put some music to this.  I will always keep dreaming about my future because sometimes dreaming is all you have.  Blessings Blogger’s on the rest of your weekend.  I’ll do better next week Mz. Linda, but I’m really loving this challenge.  Now the day is done, watching our Chicago Blackhawks ❤ with my person, the husband ❤ and they are killing it !!!  

Oh my man I love him so ❤

Thankful Thursday

Good Morning Blogger’s, it’s almost Friday Y A Y !!!!  It’s been a very long, cold week OMG.  It’s only November and we have had January weather which is not good.  It has snowed, I mean really snowed.HPcmovJGRxi1pbId73jYZg

The temperatures have smashed records.  That’s right, not broken records S M A S H E D !!!  We got down to 9 degrees the other night.  I am so done with the midwest but I’m pretty sure we’ll be here for at least another couple of years.  Having told you the winter weather forecast, my furnace went out last Friday.  Of course it did.  The first year I didn’t get it ready for the winter, it dies.  I thought I had a little bit of time.  I’m still waiting for Indian Summer, hellooo…

I had the furnace guy come out right away and he said he checked it all out, cleaned it up and said it looked like a dirty pilot light.  Whatever, it’s working and he left.  Only problem, it wasn’t working.  All week I could not get it above 63 degrees.  Then when I called him to come back, he couldn’t get here til yesterday evening.  He discovered it needed a new filter, really OMG.  The husband just changed the filter not 2 weeks ago.  Of course he looked at me with that “Yeah, right,” look.  But I gave the look right back at him that said, “Why didn’t you check the filter last time you were here ??” Hmmmm…

I thought it would be nice to have some music for the rest of my story and this is a good song for Thankful Thursday…

Back to my Thankful Thursday and yes it’s having a furnace that works and a warm bed.  One of my dreams is to go to Alaska.  I thought yesterday when the furnace was still not working, “How could you ever survive Alaska if you can’t take a little chill ?”  I got my mind right and moved on.  It really wasn’t that bad and I got this gorgeous new, “Coatagen” that’s what they call it.  It’s a real heavy sweater that I got to snuggle in all day yesterday.  I know we’re spoiled.  Getting up and turning up the thermostat and having heat.  

Quick little story…My grandmama (mother of 7) she was Italian and Catholic 😉  raised her family on a farm in Wisconsin.  She had 2 oil stoves that she would start up in the morning.  There was a vent upstairs right above the stove.  We all would fight over standing on this tiny square vent that was the only source of heat for the upstairs.  We all loved staying with her though.  Family is the best.  I have too many cousins to count ❤  She lived a grand life, very simple.   I learned so much from her and those experiences.  Pictures of all of us ❤ .  Great memories ❤IMG_0886

I’m in the middle with the red, white & blue shirt and pigtails w/an attitude 😉  Oh and we added 2 cousins after this picture…  Thank you Aunt Patti for making us take this picture.  

Looking forward to tomorrow…TGIF ❤  Today’s good too, Nails ❤ and it’s warm in my house !!!  Y A Y ❤  THANKFUL THURSDAY ❤
