I just wanted to stop by and say, “Thank You,” for Friday. Thank you for another day. Thank you for the husband who takes such good care of me and the family. Thank you for my future, it looks really exciting and that’s a great thing considering I’m 60. I was not liking the whole 60 thing, feeling very wonky about it. But today I woke up and it’s okay. So much to be thankful for and so much to look forward too !!! My Connie (Connor) is getting married in a few weeks so I’ll be the Mother of the Groom. Isn’t that just the best picture ❤ I absolutely love it ❤ I really should put up my favorite song of all time. It is the theme song for me and the husband. I tear up every time I hear it. The video is dated, but it’s all about the music and the song ❤
Hopefully I’ll get the dance thing done i.e. the Country 2-Step. A road trip Y A Y !!! Our best friends forever will be going and I’m so excited about that. They really are part of my family and we love them dearly ❤ We are staying at my favorite hotel in the world. Just think Gone With the Wind and those beautius stairs…I’m still trying to get the husband to carry me up those stairs but I don’t want to kill him.
So I’ll be back later, I just felt like putting up a post today. I just feel so good and I am so happy and life is really great. So today is Fantastic Friday and I’m in love with my life. I am blessed ❤ Thanks for stopping by. I’m going to try to do SoCS too, but me and the husband (artist/not his day job) are showing off some of his pictures at an Art Fair. How cool is that !!
This picture is one of the pictures entered in the art fair. It’s part of a set. This is the, “Piano Man” in his Jazz Band Collection and the other one thats entered is the featured picture on this post. He’s really good and it’s only a matter of time til he’s discovered. That’s not why he paints though, he just loves to create. He says he sees a picture and he just has to paint it. Yes that’s what an artist would say. I love all of his work ❤ it is absolutely stunning and beautius.
So a very busy weekend and a real busy end of the month/beginning of a new month. I’m so happy I live where there are October’s…This is my absolute favorite time of the year til the snow flies at least. Winter is not my thing. Oh one more thing, I’m moving into an amazing new place and I am so happy about that. More on that in a future post…Happy TGIF and blessings bloggers ❤
Good afternoon to all my blogger song lyric sunday fan’s !!! Y A Y Really loving this challenge every Sunday. The Song Lyric Sunday Prompts for today are, “Floor/House/Roof/Walls”. I’m going with Wall…although this one really could be Ceiling but Lionel does reference wall in here once or twice 😉
Dancing on the Ceiling
Happy Song Lyric Sunday, Blogger friend’s…It’s almost over, Sunday that is and I’m way late for posting. Please forgive me as I was very busy with the garage and throwing away so much stuff !!! Y A Y
The Song Lyric prompt for today is…Drumroll pleazzzzzz …. “Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing” This one was an easy one as the prompt is right up there with one of my favorite movies, “Beaches,” starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.
I know this song is about a friendship between two girls, but the first time I heard of this song was from my guy ❤ He said it reminded him of me being his wife and the mother of his kids. It brought a tear to my eye to think he thought of me as his hero. It’s made for a really great love story because we are each other’s hero. I love you husband and you are the wind beneath my wings..
Today’s Prompt…“Cowboy/Gun/Hat/Horse/Western” This is the song from the movie, “True Grit,” which is also the name of the song. Who Knew 😉 When I saw the prompt I immediately thought of America’s greatest cowboy !!! ❤ John Wayne ❤ The song is by performed by the the late great Mr. Glen Campbell…
Here are the “rules”:
Post a video of a song that reminds you of a loved one…I’m thinking that this is probably one of the songs that made me fall in love with the husband. We are all about music and singing. I remember hearing this song and not really paying that much attention to it or who was the artist singing until I watched him (the boyfriend now husband of 40 years, he didn’t know I was watching him sing or he probably would have stopped. He was shy like that but he likes to sing as do I) sing this song. He just seemed very cool when he was singing. He probably was smoking too as it was back in the day when we all did that and cigarettes were .50 cents a pack 😉 I didn’t say we were the smartest generation, but we were probably one of the coolest 😉 .
Post a video of a song that mentions a food or drink. This one’s for you husband…I love you and it’s been real for the last 40 !!! Let’s do this again for another 40 !!! Happy, Happy Anniversary. I’ll always be your girlfriend ❤ .
Post a video of a song that talks about rain or sunshine. This was one of those disco songs from the 70’s I think…Loved to dance it out with this one ❤ . I’m really going back in the day with this weekly song challenge …Maybe it was a simpler time for me and it just feels good like an old shoe or shirt.
I hope that enjoyed the music for today…It’s Labor Day Weekend, prayer’s and blessings for all down in Florida. Be Safe and remember don’t try to reason with hurricane season !!!! Summer’s over Mr. Knightlinger 😉 . Oh and I’m tagging you and you. Have a great Thursday ❤ .
Happy Song Lyric Sunday Blogger’s…Today’s prompt from Jim is another great one, “Dream/Lullaby/Sleep.” I’m going to go with Dream from probably my favorite musical of all time…Les Miserables. My song this Sunday is, “I Dreamed A Dream.” This recording was done by the amazing Idina Menzel and Lea Michelle. There are many recordings of this and they are all so great I had a hard time choosing which one. I think the mom & the daughter one got me though ❤ .
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 😉 .
