Happy Song Lyric Sunday

Today’s prompt is, “No Rules.” Which I have to start out with a comment addressing someone who had to be snarky about our President who is fighting his own battle against this Plague. Unfortunately someone thinks that by following the, “Rules, i.e. I suppose wearing a face mask, blah, blah, and triple blah you are safe from this horrible virus.” Actually you are not. No matter what you do you can minimize the risk I suppose, but if this should tell you anything is that we are all at risk. Him as the President, I am quite sure they took every precaution to keep him safe from this virus, but the hater’s out there seem to think that if only he would have worn a mask then he would not have contracted the virus. N O T !!! He is our President and people should really check themselves...My mom is a retired Infection Control Nurse, the daughter is a nurse on the Covid floor at a local hospital and my sister is also a nurse. You don’t understand how virus’s work. If they did, we would have a cure for the common cold which this virus is part of only on a more aggressive and dangerous level.

I have not worn a mask really at all. I don’t think I’m safer with a mask. I think the only people who should wear mask are the doctor’s and nurses or anyone who is in contact with infected people. Wash you hands, keep them away from your face, P E R I O D !!!! This virus is going to do what it is going to do and it is going to be over when it’s over and if anyone is responsible for the virus that would be China. I’m done with this virus, I’m so over it.

Now it’s time for my song for this Sunday…This is a song that always brings me and the husband to a great place. We sing it loud and dance it out. There are no worries when we listen to this song and if someone is down we just play it loud and proud and we forget about all our worries. He paints to this song and I plan listening to this song. Yes we are the Painter and the Planner. I think that’s kind of catchy 😉

Here’s the song…Promised Land by Elvis !!!! Enjoy

PROMISED LAND

“Promised Land”

I left my home in Norfolk Virginia
California on my mind
I straddled that Greyhound
And rode into Raleigh
And on across Caroline

We had motor trouble that turn into a struggle
Halfway across Alabam’
And that hound broke down and left us all stranded
In downtown Birmingham

Right away I brought me a through train ticket
Ridin’ across Mississippi clean
And I was on that midnight flyer out of Birmingham
Smoking into New Orleans

Somebody help me get out of Louisiana
Just to help me get to Houston Town
There are people there who care a little about me
And they won’t let the poor boy down

Sure as you’re born brought me a silk suit
Put luggage in my hand
And I woke up high over Alberquerque
On a jet to the promised land

Working on a T-bone steak a la carte
Flying over to the golden state
Ah when the pilot told us in thirteen minutes
He would set us at the terminal gate

Swing low chariot come down easy
Taxi to the terminal zone
Cut your engines and cool your wings
And let me make it to the telephone

Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia
Tidewater four ten o nine
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land calling
And the poor boy is on the line

Working on a T-bone steak a la carte
Flying over to the golden state
Ah when the pilot told us in thirteen minutes
He would set us at the terminal gate

Swing low chariot come down easy
Taxi to the terminal zone
Cut your engines and cool your wings
And let me make it to the telephone

Los Angeles give me Norfolk Virginia
Tidewater four ten o nine
Tell the folks back home this is the promised land calling
And the poor boy is on the line

Happy Song Lyric Sunday and let’s have a great week !!! Blessings Blogger’s

Stream of Conciousness Saturday

OLD/NEW That is the prompt for today. Seems appropriate as I am trying to re-set my OLD blog. I did other things this past summer so my OLD blog went away. Now that we are heading into a NEW season, Fall, I want to start a NEW Blog but I’m finding it a bit challenging. When I left, things were a lot different on the OLD WordPress. Now everything seems different so setting up my NEW blog is going to be a challenge. The OLD WordPress was easier but maybe that’s okay. I’m always up for learning NEW things. NEW challenges are good and I don’t feel so OLD. I was very happy to see many of my OLD blogging buddies still around. OLD friends are the best friends. I’ll be working on my NEW Blog and I hope it doesn’t get too wonky. Should be fun. I’m still the Planner Girl and having so much fun with that. I’m also still the painterswife and he has been getting a lot of new painting’s done as he has been home with me since March 13th OMG. This is his latest painting

Will this ever end…Thank you for staying with me on this blogging journey. I’ll be posting the Artist’s paintings and my planner escapades. Life is good. Blessings Bloggers ❤ . I forgot I’m suppose to tag and post this so I better get to it…

Thankful Thursday

Today I started a gratitude journal again !!! Being thankful can get you through anything. Loving your life can make for a very good day. In life you can suffer many losses, but if you can learn something from those losses then it wasn’t a total loss. I have lost many things, but I can honestly say everything that I’ve been through has taught me something and made me a better person. I love my life, I love my home, I’m a great mom and most of all I love my husband of 41 years. I truly am blessed ❤ . I’m not perfect, but I’m pretty good and it’s all about loving yourself and God. I’m thankful for the grace that God has blessed me with. If at the the end of the day all you can say is, “Thank God, this day is over,” then that’s enough. I hope everyone had a great day…Blessings ❤

My happy place…I love a world where there are October’s !!!

Song Lyric Sunday

Today I’m just going to jump back on and see where it goes…Anyone who knows me, knows that I love music and our relationship (whoever it is/was in my life) along the way has a song attached to it. So here’s is one for today w/the prompt for today is brother/sister. I never had a brother, I am one of four sister’s. The featured picture is an early one of us and the cousins. I believe the cousin picture still had a ways to go. Me and the sister’s were on the left. We were the four little girl’s and my sister was the one in the green dress. Yes we were Italian Catholics, need I say more 😉 . At one time we were all pretty close as my oldest sister was born in 55′ and I was the youngest born in 59’…I think there was a set of Irish twins in there too. My song for today is, “He’s My Brother ❤ “

I’m just going to post this b/c I’m going to have to learn WordPress all over again. It’s changed a lot since I took a break from blogging so just bare with me. If you’re reading today’s blog and you know who you are, you’ll remember this song 😉 and how it applies to our relationship 😉 . Happy Song Lyric Sunday ❤ .

Happy August

Hello to all my blogger friend’s…I’m back Y A Y. It said to just start writing here so I did. It all looks different from how it was when I left. I just went outside to enjoy the Summer and read some books, and really write (i.e. in a notebook, ahhhh) but now I’m back inside for a bit. It’s raining and I thought I’d check in today. Hi 🙂 Hope you are all well and having a great summer. I know I am !!!!
