SoCS & JusJoJan…


Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “a rainy day.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “a rainy day.” Enjoy!

That is my favorite kind of day…Spring rainy days are good as long as they are warm. Summer rainy days are good, love the thunderstorms and Fall rainy days are probably the best. Dark and comfortable as long as I can sleep in. They are the, “Maybe I’ll start some soup”kind of days that I love, love, love.

I’m pretty sure the only time I get a bit weary of rain is during the Winter. Winter in Chicago it is definitely not suppose to rain and if it does, I’m pretty sure were in for some nasty weather !!!

I too also love the smell of rain, so comforting

When it rains, remember the rainbows <3

I’m sure it will be sometime before the rain comes. Happy the snow storms seem to be going south. About 2 months before were almost done with the cold. March can be very wonky.

So excited got a prompt up in jusjojan…It’s on January 25th and the prompt is, “Journal”… Thank you so much Mz. Linda <3

Enjoy your weekend blogger’s <3 .

Monday’s Masterpiece…

Happy Monday and prayer’s and blessings to all impacted by the weather this past Friday. So sad to see all of the destruction and loss of life. It really does put much into perspective, especially at this time of year.

On the lighter side of today, we should all just count our blessings and be grateful for all that we have. On Father’s Day of this year our neighborhood was too hit by a tornado so it reminded me of how fragile life is…

I was just looking on Amazon to get some ideas for my Christmas list. I have to admit, I’m more of a Happy New Year person. I really don’t know why, but I do love the new year. Probably b/c I’m a planner girl and I don’t really get a plan until like now which is a little late. It’s still a great time of year though.

I came across one of the husband’s painting’s that I absolutely love, love, love <3 , so I thought I would post it for Monday’s Masterpiece…It’s Santa and his Christmas Mouse, Winston..

Gifts

With this being the Christmas Season I started thinking about gifts…So many things that you can buy. I came to the conclusion that the best gifts cannot be bought. The best gifts are the ones given to you by God and your mom 😉 .

I must send thank you’s to my mom for giving me the love of music. She made sure I learned how to play the piano and sang in the choir. I can remember every Saturday morning she would play the music, usually classical (which I loved and studied on the piano) or Opera’s (which I didn’t care for at all). I did however fall in love with Musical Theater <3 .

I thought I would share with you all of my favorites song’s of the season or really anytime of the year. Today I am going to share with you one of the best classical singer’s, Andrea Bocelli performing “Hallelujah,” with his daughter. This is a new version that I just came upon today it is heartwarming…Enjoy

Hallelujah

Share Your World…Happy October….

1 . Are you easily frightened or startled?

That would have to be a not really…I’m pretty aware of my surroundings at all times…”To be aware, is to be alive 😉 .

2. (Purely whimsical supposition.  Suspend disbelief for a bit)
If you were a ghost, what location do you think you would haunt? Is it the same or different from the location you’d want to haunt?

If I were to haunt anything, I think it would be right outside my front door of my home…That way I could scare away anyone that I didn’t want coming over and probably be pretty sure they wouldn’t come back 😉 ...

3. What do you see in your mind’s eye when you close your eyes? 

I usually see my forever home by the ocean or maybe the winning lottery numbers 😉 . It’s usually something very comforting as I really look forward to laying back, resting with my eyes closed and just dreaming of wonderful things…All of my blessings the past ones and those yet to come…

4. If a Semi (Big Rig in Americanese) (lorry or trolley over the pond) were about to smash into a crowd, and you could divert the vehicle’s course to hit only one person, would you?  How would you decide who would become the victim?

This is a question that I don’t think I have an answer for…I suppose I would jump out of the big rig, steering it into an inanimate object hoping no one would get injured or worse !!!!

Erratum:   A “trolley’ over the pond is the same thing as a trolley here.  It’s a trolley CAR.   Ours in the USA run on electricity though.  I have heard of them jumping the tracks and going berserk, but not often.  This is just for clarification in case any over-the-pond ers are reading and thinking “She’s daft and she doesn’t know our language very well at all, does she?”  😉 

 

This is just Mz. MelBCee’s answer to one of the, “Share Your World” questions and I just thought I would share it b/c I enjoyed her answer. It had a nice melody i.e. rhythm to it and I enjoyed the way she used the word, “Daft.” I also carry a dictionary of words with me that I don’t know the meaning of and she gave me a couple of new words today that I will be able to add to my dictionary…Thank you Mz. MelBCee

GRATITUDE SECTION

Please feel free to share what makes you feel warm and cozy when the wind blows cold? Alternatively (for those on the other side of the world), what makes you feel relaxed and comfortable when the thermometer starts rising?

I am extremely grateful for how beautius this fall has been…It almost makes me think I’m going to be able to survive another Midwestern Winter. I am also extremely grateful for my family. All of them have truly taught me so much about life I simply can’t put it all here. I have been blessed with the most wonderful husband, children and grandchildren anyone could ever hope to have. Even in the rougher times, it’s all been worth it and I’d do it all over again and not change anything !!! I might of had one more baby 😉 . I wanted 6 but I stopped at 5 b/c the body said you’re done…and the husband I think was good with that. Blessings Blogger’sI’m glad to be back at it again, have a great rest of your weekend <3 …

If the blog looks a bit wonky, it’s not my fault. I’ve been off for awhile and they keep changing stuff and I’m not the best at the tech stuff…Who cares…

I hope you don’t mind Mz. MelBCee…I stole your art work 😉 I just thought it was so pretty. I’m always stealing your stuff <3 . I thought the least I could do is share your link to your blog…Blessings and thanks for the cool pics !!!

Song Lyric Sunday…

I’m trying to get back into the blogging everyday so this was a good way to jump back on !!! Hope all of you are enjoying the fall…

I know I’m just like a little late, but you know what they say…Better late than yadayadayada. I always use Song Lyric Sunday to jump back into the blogosphere 😉 This week or last Sunday the prompt was, ” Communication, News, Telephone, or Information .” I alway use what comes to mind first or ask the husband, but the husband (aka known as my girlfriend, you know the person I call continually to share random daily info and such 😉 ) is at work. I came up with this one really fast, and yes it shows my age, but I will say I was the youngest of 4 so I’m not really that old. I remember this song was a fav of my sister, #2 in the birth order.

I am getting these prompt’s for SLS from https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2021/10/17/let-me-make-it-to-the-telephone/ I’m not sure that is the original start of the SLS prompt’s and I’m sorry for that. It always amazes me how much I forget to about blogging when I start back…

Led Zeppelin/Communication Breakdown

The song I’m going with is, ” Communication Breakdown, ” by none other the metal group of the 70’s… 😉 Led Zeppelin <3 I know Matthew & Connor that this band is nothing like your Metal Groups, OMG but these guys were considered pretty hardcore back in the day ;0 !!!!

“Communication Breakdown”

Hey, girl, stop what you’re doing!
Hey, girl, you’ll drive me to ruin
I don’t know what it is that I like about you, but I like it a lot
Won’t you let me hold you, let me feel your loving touch

Communication breakdown
It’s always the same
I’m having a nervous breakdown
Drive me insane

Hey, babe, I got something I think you ought to know
Hey, babe, I wanna tell you that I love you so
I wanna hold you in my arms, yeah!
I’m never gonna let you go, ’cause I like your charms

Communication breakdown
It’s always the same
I’m having a nervous breakdown
Drive me insane

Communication breakdown
It’s always the same
I’m having a nervous breakdown
Drive me insane! Yeah!

Communication breakdown
(I want you to love me all night)
(I want you to love me all night)
Communication breakdown
(Whoa, ah, a whoa oh)
Communication breakdown
(I want you to love me)
(I want you to love)
Communication breakdown
(I want you to love, yeah)
(I want you to love)

Song Lyric Sunday …

Always a good time to jump back on… Song Lyric Sunday. Today’s prompt comes from Mr. Jim...https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com

This week’s prompt is: 🎃ctober 3rd, 2021 – – Songs where somebody is having sex or talking about it  😜

The Song I’m going to choose today is, “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.” Performed by Meatloaf and his band <3

Paradise by the Dashboard Light…

I remember every little thing
As if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
Looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school
They were wishing they were me that night
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C’mon! Hold on tight!
C’mon! Hold on tight!Thought it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard lightAin’t no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
‘Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed
Ain’t no doubt about it
Baby got to go and shout it
Ain’t no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
‘Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressedBaby doncha hear my heart
You got it drowning out the radio
I’ve been waiting so long
For you to come along and have some fun
And I gotta let you know
No you’re never gonna regret it
So open up your eyes I got a big surprise
It’ll feel all right
Well I wanna make your motor runAnd now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C’mon! Hold on tight!
C’mon! Hold on tight!Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Paradise by the dashboard light
You got to do what you can
And let Mother Nature do the rest
Ain’t no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
‘Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barelyWe’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way
And tonight’s the night…
We’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way
And tonight’s the night…OK, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here,
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth,
There’s the windup, and there it is, a line shot up the middle,
Look at him go. This boy can really fly! He’s rounding first and really
Turning it on now, he’s not letting up at all, he’s gonna try for
Second; the ball is bobbled out in center, and here comes the
Throw, and what a throw! He’s gonna slide in head first, here he
Comes, he’s out! No, wait, safe-safe at second base, this kid
Really makes things happen out there. Batter steps up to the
Plate, here’s the pitch-he’s going, and what a jump he’s got,
He’s trying for third, here’s the throw, it’s in the dirt-safe at
Third! Holy cow, stolen base! He’s taking a pretty big lead out
There, almost daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher
Glances over, winds up, and it’s bunted, bunted down the third
Base line, the suicide squeeze is on! Here he comes, squeeze
Play, it’s gonna be close, holy cow, I think he’s gonna make it!Stop right there!
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further!
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
Do you love me!?
Will you love me forever!?
Do you need me!?
Will you never leave me!?
Will you make me happy for the rest of my life!?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife!?
I gotta know right now
Before we go any further
Do you love me!?
Will you love me forever!?Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morningI gotta know right now
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further
Do you love me?
And will you love me forever?Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on itWill you love me forever?Let me sleep on itWill you love me forever!I couldn’t take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god and on my mother’s grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore that I would love you to the end of time!
So now I’m praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
‘Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don’t think that I can really survive
I’ll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I’m praying for the end of time
It’s all that I can do
Praying for the end of time,
So I can end my time with you!It was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is todayIt never felt so good
It never felt so right
And we were glowing like
A metal on the edge of a knife
