Isn't it great when you're wandering through town to bump into an old friend and then find yourself in a coffee shop (2nd one of the day!) having a good old gas. Good timing groovy gal! I like the weekend...
So, here's a "shout out" for some of my blog readers/friends who are going through tough times at the moment. Feel for ya all gals and guys. You know who you are, hope the music makes you smile and...oh yes there's a big bear hug thrown in too!
Real men are creators and cultivators, not childish consumers, cowards, or complainers.
Mark Driscoll makes the point that in 30AD there were 5 stages between boyhood and manhood which happened, sometimes simultaneously and often suddenly; didn't have the gap we call adolescence or teen years.
Apologies for a no image posting...been surfing via tablet and wanted to communicate to FB friends the smiley face with "feeling happy" but I can't access it on tablet for some reason...guess i'm now opting for "feeling frustrated"...learnt a long time to laugh at own jokes as no-one else does!!
A golden oldie I first found in the Di Caprio/Danes Romeo and Juliet film back in the day. I like to think of it as the petrol station one as in the one which impressively blows up. Same director for The Great Gatsby and you could tell. The same Leo in that too!
Anyway, just a good old fashioned (ish) love song which I heard on the radio earlier and have played a few times since...
I spend most of my week in Yorkshire and tomorrow spending some time in Yorkshire in a cave; think they call it a show cave. You'll never catch me squeezing through narrow spaces doing serious caving.
So would be really cool if the rain could stop...sometime soon. Otherwise me and my mates are going to be overdosing on coffee and cake doing the coffee shop tour!! Given two of us are on diets this would not be good....two people watching one person eat cake is no fun...
Just heard from a very old friend (younger than me which makes me mega old!) who says she's been enjoying reading my blog. All the way from Italy. Made me so happy!!! Grazie...photo reminds me of a happy sunny day with a sis, friends, a very cute little boy and gelato.
Best bit about Sunday? Learning more about our wonderful God. Sometimes when we're singing my heart wants to burst with joy at all he's done for me especially through the hard times. Jesus is a wonderful saviour and the answer to every need we have; he is awesome!
I have been trying to learn this piece for years and I'm nearly there but not quite. Just beautiful. seriously dodgy film but fantastic music. When I, one day, live in a house big enough to hold a piano I'm going to master this!
Planned over a year ago, as documented on blog, to get this practised up on the old acoustic guitar. Yes, well and the singing too. Now the fiddle can be put away for a bit (until next musical engagement) going to get the guitar out and get this learnt properly.
If Mr Darcy ever makes an appearance I could sing this song to him. Or maybe not....dogs howl when I start singing...
