Happy Song Lyric Sunday…

Today’s prompt for SLS is the music genre, “Country”…When I hear country music I think of one of my fav’s Mr. Toby Keith, plus he’s real easy on the eyes 😉 !!! I’m going with “How Do You Like Me Now,” for my SLS…

How Do You Like Me Now

This is a big favorite of mine. It reminds me of when I went to a new highschool my senior year. I’m sure most can know what a cruel adjustment that was. Highschool was a challenging enough to begin with let alone having no friends to hang with. Let’s just say Senior year sucked, (sorry for the crudeness,) but I can’t think of any other way to describe that. I was pretty much alone and jailing it for the entire year. You know crossing the days off til I could graduate. I went for the early graduation doing correspondence courses. Happiest, at least one of them, days of my life when I got that, “Sheep Skin.”

Really song says it all. I was dating the husband during my senior year. He was a Junior at Northwestern University. I wanted him to take me to my senior prom that year so I could stick a finger in the eyes of all of those nasty senior girls who ignored me. No one believed me when I would talk about him, but who cares. Then I saw one of those snotty senior girls (post graduation) in a grocery store working the register. She kept trying to get me to notice her, (probably b/c I had my awesome, handsome college boy with me, and the huge diamond I had on my hand 😉 ) ” I just kept looking at her saying, “Do I know you. I can’t really place the face.” She kept saying, “Remember senior year, I was in your blah, blah, blah gym class & 1st hour.” Me, “Sorry, just can’t place the face.” Knowing exactly who she was.

That’s right, “How do you like me now 😉 “

SoCs & #JusJoJan

When it comes to, “killing two birds w/one stone” you can count it on my participation. That was a very lame use of that phrase, but I think in can work. Sorry Mz. Linda, I tried 😉 …

Back to SoCS…Had a great Saturday, Mani/Pedi and a 9 hour house wake-up. How do you erase your stream of consciousness??? I did though. Husband is still working on Mr. Paul Newman and it’s looking good. I’ll feature maybe on Monday’s Masterpiece. I guess I could sneak a peak at his progress on the painting…This picture was streaming through my consciousness 😉 …

Had leftover Spaghetti & Meatloaf again. It is very delicious to use leftover meatloaf in your new spaghetti sauce. Very tasty and I made some Gooey Sugar Cookie Bar for dessert. House is cleaned and life is just moving along, no complaints from this lady.

I’m just glad I got this up for today…See y’all tomorrow for Song Lyric Sunday. Hope everything is good in your corner of the world. It’s movie night at # thename and if you know what that is then good for you <3 . Blessings Blogger’s for a quiet Saturday evening…

#JusJoJan

Day is done…I must get out of the January Dumps. So here I am for the January Challenge. The prompt today is, “Phantom”. When I hear that word, I think of “Phantom of the Opera” yes the musical. This is from my old day’s of when I wore the hat of Musical Theatre Mom. It was a fun time of life for me and yes I do miss it. Also a great musical for sure, one of my fav’s. Happy Friday and let’s hope we don’t get a snow storm next week. I mean we’ve come this far with nary a flake of snow, so know you don’t get to make up for lost time next week. Snow go away.

#JusJoJan

The devil whispered into my ear today, “You cannot withstand the storm.” I looked back at the devil and whispered into his ear today, “I am the S T O R M.”

Happy Wednesday…A little humor to start you day, Blessings Blogger’s

Hump Day…Woot, Woot

#JusJoJan

Happy Monday evening. I hope everyone had a great day and you got a 3 day weekend !!!! It was raining all day here, a dreary January day. The one good thing I can say about January, and I say it every single day. “We are one day closer to January being over !!!! Y A Y

The kids came over for dinner tonight. It was Meatloaf, Onion Brown Potatoes. Lizzie brought over her corn casserole, it was yummy and I’lll have to get that recipe. I made my Ooey Gooey Cookie Bar Bake that was a nice end to it.

#JusJoJan/January 15th/

I say, Thank You” for today’s prompt which is,”Gratitude”….I really can’t think of a more meaningful word. I’m trying to stay on task, but I can’t think of anything better to add to this prompt. It can really make you feel wonderful when people are grateful. Gratitude can get you through the darkest of days. I want say, “Thank You,” and I’m grateful for everyone who stops buy and reads my blog. You mean the world to me.

I try to come up with things to help you smile, a painting the artist is painting. A recipe I found and baked and realized this was too good not to share. I just hope I add a little ray of sunshine to someone’s day. Thank you for being in my blogging world, your presence gives me a reason and that is so important now.

I’m going to give you a sneak peak at The Painter’s lastest Masterpiece…It will make it to Monday’s Masterpiece soon. Happy week to y’all. Hope you are all well …

Song Lyric Sunday…

Happy Sunday blogger’s. Weekend’s come and go pretty fast around here. The prompt for today’s music is Metal Music !!!! Yeah. I have a friend in that music. Actually he is our son’s friend and we made some really fun memories with him and the fam…I became a rockin metal momma that summer and it was nothing like I thought.

A bit of a back story of meeting the lead singer of, “Lamb of GodMr. DRandallBlythe. Our son’s living out in Virginia (Dancing Professionally) became friend’s with Mr. DRandall Blythe. They collaborated with his music and my son’s choreography on the Ballet. They were both featured in Rolling Stones Magazine.

When we met, it was when he went out on his book tour, “Dark Days”

I’ve decided not play any of his music, it’s just that my mom who is 91 years old likes to read my blog and I think that is something that is not in her wheelhouse 😉 …I’m sure he’d understand, he was an absolute diamond, a real keeper … Love you Mr.DRandallBlythe <3 Momma Frain <3 … I just had to give him a shout out for the Metal Community.

Rockin Metal Momma w/Randy Blythe & The Painter 😉

I’m thinking of using Guns n Roses, “Paradise City for my first choice and I’m going give AC/DC an honorable mention 😉 …

Guns n Roses/Paradise City

Lyrics

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home (oh, won’t you please take me home)
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home (oh, won’t you please take me home)

Just a urchin livin’ under the street
I’m a hard case that’s tough to beat

I’m your charity case so buy me something to eat
I’ll pay you at another time
Take it to the end of the line

Rags to riches or so they say
Ya gotta keep pushin’ for the fortune and fame
You know it’s all a gamble when it’s just a game
Ya treat it like a capital crime
Everybody’s doin’ the time

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won’t you please take me home
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home

Strapped in the chair of the city’s gas chamber
Why I’m here I can’t quite remember
The surgeon general says it’s hazardous to breathe
I’d have another cigarette but I can’t see
Tell me who you’re gonna believe

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home, yeah yeah
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won’t you please take me home, yeah yeah

So far away
So far away
So far away
So far away

Captain America’s been torn apart
Now he’s a court jester with a broken heart
He said “turn me around and take me back to the start”
I must be losing my mind “are you blind?”
I’ve seen it all a million times

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home, yeah yeah
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won’t you please take me home

Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home, yeah yeah
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won’t you please take me home

I wanna go, I wanna go
Oh, won’t you please take me home
I wanna see how good it can be
Oh, won’t you please take me home
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty

Take me home
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won’t you please take me home
Take me down, lead me ’round
Oh, won’t you please take me home

I wanna see, what a woman can be
I want to take you home
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Oh, won’t you please take me home
I wanna go, I wanna know
Oh, won’t you please take me home, yeah baby

I want to give a special mention out to AC/DC. They make me want to dance and sing and my youngest likes them and so do I 😉 Enjoy my Metal Play list 😉 …

AC/DC Thunderstruck … <3

Happy Sunday, Just Jot It January

Good Sunday Morning Blogger’s, woop’s I mean afternoon … Boy the times just flies. Enjoying coffee with the husband (my Best Friend) and having a great weekend. The husband bought me a new computer, Y A Y !!!! He’s such a great guy, and he has given me a life that is as perfect as life gets <3… I love him to the moon.

I’m going to post a song, just to see how this computer works and if it’s any different. I spent all day down at the apple store getting acquainted and setting it up. Better than calling Connie and wasting his time as he is my personal computer tech. I felt good b/c the apple guy said I was pretty good with the computer and so did Connie. I guess all this blogging has at least kept me in the game.

I guess I’ll just use this post for my Just Jot It JanuaryI forgot that I was doing this. My blogging habit got a little sloppy as my old computer was annoying me, but this one is fun getting to know. I love, love, love new things.

So for today it’s just going to playing all day with my new computer and my new planner’t for 2023. I must say I’m a bit behind setting all of those up. I’m not going to worry about that b/c I’ll get it done and like the husband says, ” You’re always looking for stuff to do…(Yeah, right like I don’t have enough to do). That’s a man for you though, but I still love him to the moon… I’m going to post one of my favorite songs and I love it when he sings this song. He does a good job with Bob Seager <3

Turn the Page…

I’m giving him my old computer which I have to say is still in pretty good condition. He’s not really a computer guy. He’s salesman by trade and until the computer can shake his hand, he’s not really interested in what it can do.

Happy Sunday, and make sure you come back and visit. I will be posting regularly and showing his amazing artwork. He’s done with, “Von Ryan” Express and has started on a new one, “Cool Hand Luke” aka Mr. Paul Newman <3 …

2023 Resolution

I did not make any resolution’s this year but I have to say this is one of my favorite days of the entire year !!!! I love, love, love New Year’s Day. A brand new year with brand new possibilities, a blank slate. It is always so exciting in my world !!!

I always say, “Write it down, Make it happen.” I learned from making lists that this is the key. Writing things down does make it happen, it almost makes it real. Today I really did nothing today but just being happy b/c it’s a new year.

This is going to be my first challenge of the year…Just Jot January 2023

Merry Christmas, 2022

So for today, it’s Sunday so it’s my day off and tomorrow I will start my new planner. We will have a year of first’s again and those are so exciting. I’m not going to say too much of those first’s b/c I have discovered an evil troll who has done some very mean things and I would expect nothing less from that person/people b/c they just aren’t very good people. I have one thing to say to those mean, horrible people. What goes around, comes around so you had better be careful because good always overcomes bad, horrible people !!!! You know who you are and so do I. You know I have a song for everything, and this is not my song for SLS. This song is for you, I know who you are. Believe me, I’m watching and it wasn’t hard to figure out who did this. This song is for you 😉 …

Back Stabbers

There’s a reason when people leave your world and I’ve learned God’s in control and he takes the people out of your life who will be no good for you. He’ll deal with them and that’s good enough for me. The best thing to do is to live a good life and be happy and I choose that.

Happy New Year 2023

Happy New Year Blogger’s !!! I meant to do this last night, but I guess on purpose I waited until this morning b/c I’m going to be reinventing my blog this year. It’s going to be fun, so I hope you’ll be checking back regularly…

The Holiday’s were just the best this year. We had so much fun with the family. It really didn’t matter that there were miles between us. We were all together in such a good place.

Happy New Year to Everyone…
