That time of the week again!
Post a video of a song that’s perfect when you’re feeling overwhelmed. I always pray when I’m feeling overwhelmed. I can’t think of a better song to listen to ❤ . Oh and I just love, love, love Andrea Bocelli ❤ .
Post a video of a song you’d find humorous if it came on while making whoopie. This is an amazing song and Tina Turner really rocks it. I don’t think many know just how hard it is to sing and dance it out like she does, and at the same time…Crazy Talent !!! I absolutely love her legs and can she dance. W O W
Post a video of a protest song. I love this guy ❤ and this song !!!
He also sings, “The Search is Over.” At one of his concerts, we arrived late and were walking by the stage when he was singing this song and he walked down and kissed me (on the cheek 😉 ) in front of the entire audience !!! It was the thrill of a lifetime and I will never forget it ❤ .
So there you have it my Weekly Song Challenge. Thank you, Mz. Laura for the great prompts. Almost the weekend, Y A Y…It’s Hump Day…
This is a fun video I watch when I’m feeling low and it always makes me smile…Enjoy Blogger’s…and I’m tagging you and you 😉 .
Y A Y…Really I look forward to this every week. It’s one of my favs !!! The husband who knows everything about everything (He’s a Northwestern Grad and he reads, reads, reads all the time about everything) so he’s always my go to guy when I can’t think of something for the prompt. No really the guy know’s so much. I told him today if I had not met him, I would still be that bubble gum, pony tailed, 70’s hippie… 😉 The prompt for Song Lyric Sunday is…“Songs that includes somebody famous in it.” This comes from Mr. Jim
Here I am at my blog. Had trouble sleeping last night, the brain just would not turn off. I have so much to do, OMG !!! That’s what my planner is for. Supposedly when you have set up a plan for your day, you take it out of you brain. Then you can rest, knowing that you have written it down and you don’t have to worry about forgetting something. You’d think anyways. The problem is, I didn’t make a plan for today like I was suppose to do yesterday. Just got my delivery from Amazon…Y A Y.
I know I am so busy and I really should be planning instead of blogging but I’ll just post this and get to my planner. The planner is looking amazing !!! Oh and it’s happy mail this week, double Y A Y, Y A Y…
I’m really loving this month’s kit. Having so much fun playing with my planner, Mz. Serena. I think we need some music … This is one of my favorites b/c I love the way the husband sings it.
I’m going to end this post with a wonderful story. This is my 60/40 year aka I’m turning 60 (not happy about this at all) and we’ll be celebrating 40 years of wedded bliss (we’ve been together for 43 years). I mean really, I married the perfect man ladies. A couple of days ago I was not having a great day. I got too close to the sad room. Everyone has a sad room and I usually avoid going there. I don’t have many people in my life that I can really let it all hang out but I have one and that’s really all you need. He’s my person, sometimes I call him my girlfriend b/c that’s who I call when things get wonky. After talking to him on the phone sharing my tears and fears, he had to get going to catch his train to get home. (I’m sure he was looking forward to that and me, N O T )
Having the crappy, sad day that I was having I didn’t look very attractive. When he got in the car, he was met by a wife with puffy eyes, crazy hair b/c I didn’t take a shower and do my hair. It was a no make-up kind of day. The first thing he said to me when he got in the car and looked at me was, “My sweet wife ❤ I wish I could make you feel better. You didn’t deserve this.” I know what he’s talking about, that’s all I’ll say about that. That’s all I needed to hear. You could feel the love with his words and I don’t really know how to put that feeling down on this blog. After feeling so bad all day, those 3 words, “My Sweet Wife ❤ ” changed everything. He was home and today was done. I am loved and tomorrow is another day so there is hope ❤ I am blessed and when I closed my swollen eyes that night to sleep, I said thank you to God for giving me the grace I needed to finish my day. I looked over at the husband sleeping and I was at peace. I really am very blessed ❤
I just wanted to share that story with you. I hope my blogging family is happy and looking forward to the weekend…NEVER, NEVER QUIT 🙂 because after all, tomorrow is another day…Love ya, Blessings ❤
Good Sunday Morning fellow Blogger’s and yes it is again Song Lyric Sunday. These weeks of summer are just flying by, but I am soaking them all up and enjoying every minute of them. Sorry I digress, back to Song Lyric Sunday.
Today’s prompt comes from Mr. Jim/newepicauthor and it’s a wonderful prompt that I will have no trouble with. The prompt is, as some would say, “Synchronicity,” and I will be writing about either a movie or the song, or both. Last night we do what we typically do on Saturday night, watch a movie. Our choice for last night was, “Titanic,” as I rented it off of our Netflix app on Friday night and fell asleep about 5 minutes into it. I don’t think that was a result of the movie because the movie is one of my favs, I was just really tired and it was late when I rented it. I forgot it was over 3 hours long… Not wanting to waist the charge, which by the by kind of irritates me b/c you pay for cable and Netflix and then a rental charge for the movie, really !!! It’s a racket that’s for sure. Without further ado, here is my video for today’s Song Lyric Sunday…Enjoy ❤
Enjoy your Sunday Blogger’s and once again Happy Song Lyric Sunday ❤
Happy SoCSaturday…Really need to get back to my happy place which is right here !!!
Being a homemaker, I’m all about clean/dirty. I have over the years created what I call my list of rules when it comes to cleaning and my home. I live by the book, “Confessions of and Organized Homemaker .” The book was written by Denise Shoenfield, (I’m thinking that’s how it’s spelled..”)
Below is the link who is in charge of the prompts for SoCSaturday…Go check it out, and join in the Saturday Challenge 🙂
My rules for a clean house are really quite simple.
Funny story…I love Lucky Charms the cereal and my #3 son ate all the marshmallows out of the box of cereal. When I went to have a bowl of Lucky Charms, there were no marshmallows in it. I knew right away who was the culprit. He was in his room. He was in high school so it wasn’t like he didn’t know better. I went into his room and I confronted him about there being no marshmallows in the box of cereal and he hemmed and hawed like he didn’t have a clue of what I was talking about. “Okay, here,” I said and dumped the rest of the cereal (the oats that no one even likes) over his head. “You might as well finish the box of cereal.” Never happened again. I guess he got the point.
When I look back on, “My Rules,” I don’t think they are that crazy. I just like once the house is clean, it can look like no one lives there for a couple of hours, in case the real Queen does come. It could happen. When you are a homemaker, you are never done with the housework, laundry, cooking, yadayadayada. So I didn’t think it was too much to ask for having a clean house for a couple of hours and the housework was done…And if you think people have to live in the home, I didn’t do a lot of things that other people do like make you take your shoes off when you came in or hang up things. I did try to get everyone on board with leaving the room looking better than it did when you came in, but I had boys. One final thought. Now that the boys are all taking wives I tell them, “I tried and if your going to marry him you have to sign my disclaimer so I’m not being blamed for their habits 😉 !!!” Blessings to my wonderful son’s and family, I really do love you all 😉 ❤ .
Rules for SoCS by Mz. Linda
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!
There you have it for this week’s challenge. Love all of this ❤ Music is my happy place. Have a great day !! Blessings, Bloggers’s ❤
