Happy Valentine’s Day, Lovey!
This one is for you.
As long as I live and breathe this song will remind me of you.
Our first date. A disaster. The movie! Not the date. Twister. We were tempting fate, apparently, and not to get all overconfident or anything, but so far, so good.
I can’t really explain this one. Do you even know? *swoons*
So mellow. So indulgent. I haven’t heard this in a long, long time.
I sincerely don’t think there is another human on this planet (Are there humans on other planets? Wait. Not the point. Sorry, sorry.) who could tolerate my ugly cry like you. Thanks for that. You never make me feel crazier than anyone else. I appreciate that so much.
“The Object of My Affection”. The little kiddos singing at the end. I was done. Holy ugly cry. That was pretty intense and as I recall went on for quite some time. I am pretty sure you have been there for all my really great ugly cries of the last 18 years. Wait. That sounds wrong. What I mean is that when I really need to let out the stress of the world or a self-inflicted sadness (Watching “Step Mom” on Christmas Day when we were very far away from home, comes to mind. Hoo boy! There was another doozie of an ugly cry.), you are always there.
I love you.
There’s a reason he won all those awards.
You have to admit that was great, don’t you?
I am a Tracy Chapman fan and I love “Fast Car”. It holds a very personal place in my heart, actually, and even I love Sam Smith’s version.
I really appreciate a live performance.
It’s fun to see different generations teaming up to make something brand new.
Maybe musicians should be our world leaders. I’m telling you right now I’d support an Annie Lennox/Ed Sheeran government.
What did you think of the GRAMMYs this year? Did you even watch?
Are you into music?
Do you love or loathe awards season?
Here is a picture of yesterday’s lunch.
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon shelled hemp seeds
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
All in one happy making, old fashioned, ice cream shoppe, parfait dish.
I’m here to tell you it was decadent.
That is all.
What’s decadent to you?
What’s your favourite lunch?
This* is the best thing I have done for myself in more than a week.
Winter is hard.
I am trying to kick myself in the bum, but my feet don’t go that way, so I might need an intervention by way of a virtual butt kicking.
How are you faring off?
Are you remembering to take care of yourself?
What do you do to keep motivated when the weather outside is screaming at you to take a nap?
You know? Like this.
*This is a smoothie made with water, 1/4 c frozen blueberries, 1 scoop protein powder. I used my Hamilton Beach single serve blender to, well, blend it.
