Happy Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Sunday and Happy Halloween !!! Today’s prompt is Ghost/Pumpkin/Trick or Treat/Witch…and is very appropriate for this week. I’m going with, “Witch.” The song I’m playing today is Witchy Woman by Glenn Fry and Don Henley, The Eagles. Once again thank you Mr. Jim...Great for Halloween!!!

I’m going to tell you a quick little story that is near and dear to my heart. I knew Glenn Fry personally and I was so sad he was taken so very soon from us. He was an amazing musician and writer. When I met him he was playing the guitar and me being a really friendly person (I’m a people person, love to talk to complete stranger’s just b/c I like to hear their story) I’m really surprised I haven’t been killed by some coo coo bird sociopathic murderer yet 😉 But I just really love people, I digress back to meeting Glenn Fry…

When I met him, he was playing the guitar. I commented that he was a very good guitar player. He responded with, “I’m Glenn Fry…” I was only like 15 years old and he was what seemed to me to be a pretty old guy, but he was maybe 30 or something. He said again, “I’m Glenn Frey.” I nodded and said, “Is that suppose to mean something to me ?” Immediately after that, he started playing the song, “Take It Easy,” you know I’m running down the road, trying to loosen my load, I got 7 women on my mind…yadayadayadaya. Then it hit me and I smiled and I said, “Oh now I get it, your Glenn Frey w/the Eagles 🙂 ” I guess that didn’t impress me so much and he kind of liked that. I’ll never forget it… The guitar he was playing was just so beautiful. I was a piano player so I really got how good of a musician he was. I remember I thought that you’re just a regular person too. Just a guy and a guitar and he was pretty good at it. I see it totally different now, but when I watch his video’s on youtube he’s exactly how I remember him. I’m going to put up a short video of him. When I met him he was the hippy musician rather than the short hair, I’ve cleaned up my act person that he was at the end. I really don’t know which one I like better. It’s probably the same story we each have in our lives. Kind of the, “I know everything about life person and the other one who’s says my parents were a whole lot smarter than I gave them credit for 😉 “

Eagles’ Glenn Frey
Witchy Woman

Witchy Woman

EaglesRaven hair and ruby lips
Sparks fly from her fingertips
Echoed voices in the night
She’s a restless spirit on an endless flightWoo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eyeShe held me spellbound in the night
Dancing shadows and firelight
Crazy laughter in another room
And she drove herself to madness with a silver spoonWoo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eyeWell, I know you want a lover
Let me tell you, brother
She’s been sleeping in the devil’s bed
And there’s some rumours going round, someone’s underground
She can rock you in the night-time ’til your skin turns redWoo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eye

Well that’s my song for today, I hope you enjoyed my story and the music. I feel kind of sad right now as it brings me back to the day when the world didn’t seem so complicated and people were kinder. RIP my friend Mr. Glen. I’m sure your singing beautius songs w/the angel’s. Blessings to all the music lover’s and #SongLyricSunday Blogger’s. Happy Sunday Night ❤ .

Happy Saturday

Well it was until it wasn’t…I was going to stick with SoCS/Stream of Consciousness Saturday until my day went south. Let me just warn you, if you don’t want to read about the election, covid 19, pro-life Catholic well I suggest you move on because this is America and not FB or Twitter where they obviously censor now, hello. Still going to link this on FB and see what they do.

Right now I’m watching another amazing rally with our great president, Donald Trump. I’ll be truthful the last election I voted for him but I wasn’t happy that was the Republican candidate, but I will not vote for Democrat/Pro Death i.e. Pro Choice. I’m sorry if that offends anyone but I told you to move on and you didn’t so I don’t care. I feel that I can say that as I was faced with that decision when I was a young 25 year old mother. We lost our second son, Sean Patrick to a neural tube defect. When I got pregnant with baby #3, they wanted to do all kind of test on me and these were the exact words of my OB doctor…”That way we can see in the baby is okay. If not then you can get an abortion if the baby is not viable. (OMG I thought I would faint) !!!! It’s also approved by the Catholic Church he went on to say.” Really, I wonder if God would approve that !! Sean Patrick was born alive, he got to be baptized and died shortly after that. We had a burial for him and laid him to rest with his Grandpapa Frain. Now we have an angel watching over us in heaven. Oh and the test he wanted to put me through could’ve possibly compromised a totally healthy pregnancy but that would be okay too I guess. I wonder if my daughter who is now 35 years old and my 3 granddaughter’s would think that was okay if I had rolled the dice with their life. Well I didn’t think it was okay at all. Always choose life b/c death is the only thing you can’t get out of. God is the Author of Life. Joe Biden thinks Choice is okay, I do not.

2. Covid19 and wearing a mask is on my last nerve, OMG. People wake up. You are not going to stop a virus wearing a mask. The Democrats think they can lock us away in our houses, close down business, ruin the economy, make us wear a stupid mask which does not stop the virus hello. Oh and the husband hasn’t been to work since March 13th !!! I wonder if that matters to the Democrats. I’m sure it doesn’t to that stupid Mayor Lightfoot who just locked the city down again. I won’t listen to the news anymore. You want to see what Covid19 looks like…

Guess what, I survived !!! The reason I survived is because God’s in charge, not a mask. Another reason I survived is because I live in America, the greatest country on this planet with an amazing healthcare system. Provided the Democrats don’t get their hands on it and ruin it with all their stupid regulations !!! Oh my mom is a retired Infection Control Nurse, my sister is a nurse and my daughter is a nurse so I think I get an informed opinion !!!

She works on the covid floor and guess what I give her hugs whenever I see her and maybe even a kiss ❤ I’m not afraid but I’m really tired of all the lies and disinformation the media throws out there to scare us and try to control us. I absolutely am so done with this Democratic state !!! A woman had the nerve to tell me to wear a mask, that is what totally made me go off the rails and post this on my blog. If you want to wear a mask, wear one !!! If you don’t, don’t but leave me the hell alone. It’s my decision and this is America. I think this is almost like Germany and the mask is the marker. I’m not wearing one, not today, not ever !!!!

Open up the churches, let God back in our lives. This is so like the frog that jumps in a caldron of cool water and then they turn the burner on and before he knows it he’s cooked !!! That’s what I feel like is happening in this country. If anyone is responsible for this tragedy, it is the Democrat’s…Vote and vote for America and freedom. Let’s get our country back before they totally destroy it. President Donald Trump is the best president I have ever had the priveledge of voting for !!! A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for that horrible Commala Harris…Oh I’m sorry did I spell her name wrong or pronounce it wrong. She is a real piece of work. I thought Hillary was bad, but man is she is a political hack !!! I’m counting on God. He’s in control and let’s hope he doesn’t think we need to learn a lesson.

I’m done for now, and I really don’t feel much better but at least I said it and I’m not sorry for it. I’m going to let it go for now and just keep praying and having faith that God is watching us.

I love, love, love another challenge… I’m going to give it a go 🙂

” She fought back and she won ❤ “

Masterpiece Monday

Just start…I suppose that is just what to do. Learning might look different for awhile, but it will get easier 😉 I hope. If you know me at all, I love font’s and color buttons. It just seems like it’s more original than just straight vanilla all the time. I think it’ll be more fun but at the same time maybe a bit wonky !!! I’m sure you know what I mean.

I’ve also been a bit distracted as one of our dog’s, Bella is not doing so well and that has been taking up a lot of my time. I know what’s ahead and I’m trying to make her as comfortable as possible. I’m her human and she can tell whenever I’m upset and that is not good for her so I have to play it very cool, which is not easy to do. She has been a great loyal friend to me for a very long time and I really love her.

My Sweet, Sweet Bella
Hanging outside with dad…

She’s hanging in their for now, we are just going take it one day at a time for now. The husband, my artist has been painting over the weekend and he finally finished the painting. Here is the finished product and I think he did a beautius job on it !!!

I think it turned out really nice. Happy Monday, Blessings Bloggers

Happy Song Lyric Sunday

I am going to try to get through this w/o screaming. I’m not really crazy about all of the changes with WordPress, but what ever. Today’s prompt for Song Lyric Sunday comes once again from Mr. Jim. The prompt is Hold/Pause/Stop/Wait. I’m going to go with, ” Hold “. Using the song from the movie, “Bridesmaids.” The song is, “Hold On by Wilson Phillips.” The movie is just too funny. I might just even watch it again.

Hold On

I know there’s pain
Why do you lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you
Don’t ever let anyone step all over you
Just open your heart and your mind
Is it really fair to feel this way inside?Some day somebody’s gonna make you want to
Turn around and say goodbye
Until then baby are you going to let them
Hold you down and make you cry
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know things can change
Things’ll go your way
If you hold on for one more day
Can you hold on for one more day
Things’ll go your way
Hold on for one more dayYou could sustain
Or are you comfortable with the pain?
You’ve got no one to blame for your unhappiness
You got yourself into your own mess
Lettin’ your worries pass you by
Don’t you think it’s worth your time
To change…

Have fun with the song, Happy Song Lyric Sunday, Happy Fall ❤

Happy Sunday

The weather has been spectacular this weekend so I just decided to go for a walk and collect all of the fall colors that my little camera could hold. These grand trees line my street with so many beautiful colors that follow me when I walk. All of the different color that surrounds me, keeps me warm. It’s a safe, cerebral kind of feeling. Peace I usually do a round trip up one side, down the other….It amazes me how everything looks totally different from a different angle !!!!

Walking with the Trees

This was one of the first trees I passed. Loving the color…

These beautiful trees line my street

I am going to show some the trees right across from the house…I see them everyday and it’s comforting, It’s Home ❤

Share your World

I’m loving this challenge, as it has always been one of the fav’s !!! Thanks so much Mz. Melanie ❤ love, love, love the questions …Happy Thursday;)

Questions:

When was the last time you tried something new?

That would be right now b/c I guess blogging on this N E W version of wordpress comes under that category. It’s kind of a process and it’s just going to take some time…Blog, Add, Edit, Repeat…yadayadayada.   How did that go for you? I think it will be fine once I get use to it 🙂

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

If your absence doesn’t affect them, your presence never mattered …

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

I’m thinking I would be around mid 40’s…For some reason that time in my life was easy, hopeful.

Lastly, I’ll be doing one “Halloween” themed question per week during October.  Those who don’t observe the holiday are welcome to answer or to ignore it as they wish.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:

Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

I’m pretty sure that would be a great big N O …


GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)

Do you enjoy any seasonal traditions around this time of year? It’s not really a tradition, more like a changing of the seasons. I put away summer, i.e. clean out the garage, throw stuff away, clean up the yard. Take out the fall decorations and color. Inside is cozy, i.e. blankets, tea pot on the kitchen counter w/fall tea cups of course. Fireplace getting ready for some warm fires to snuggle by with a good book, cup of tea, and my pillows and blanket. Favorite season of all that would be fall. “I’m so happy I live in a world where there are October’s. 🙂 “

Wednesday’s Words

Happy Wednesday everyone 😉 I hope all are well and getting through this madness. No worries, I’m pretty sure we will be over it sometime around November 4th … Just a guess 😉 … Yesterday I put the finishing touches on my writing space. I love it ❤ !!! My Featured Picture is the finished product. As I said before I absolutely love it. It brings me such joy whenever I walk into my room and see it and sit down, “In my own little corner, in my own little chair and I can be whatever I want to be ❤ !!!” Yes I know, it’s a bit wonky but it brings a smile as I remember this from way back in the day, when life was easy. Anything that can make you happy and bring you joy, do that !!!! Blessings Blogger’s ❤ . Don’t forget to check out the widget on my header in the blog. I updated it, that was pretty challenging but really worth it. I don’t know how I even did it. Whatever, 😉 it looks good ❤ . My people ❤ .

I can be whatever I want to be ❤

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.

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2020/10/03/no-rules/

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…
