Fly me away …….

I do not want to do that anymore
I need a break for a bit
Can you please just get out of my way
so I can fly on my magic carpet?

Where would I go you ask?
What would I do?
Whatever I want to do, I say
and wherever I want to go!

No, do not say it is not possible
Do not start with that negative tone
I think I will get going now
Just, please just leave me alone!

Off I go
My first stop Africa
My next will start with a B!

I shall be gone for awhile

as you can see!
Do not miss me, OK?
I will think of you with a smile
I will think of you everyday

Bye

for Charlie……..

Question……

What do you think of when you hear this song?

Have a great weekend.

Faria State Beach…nice*









I just got back from a wonderful weekend trip. Faria State beach is just beautiful. We camped right near the waves. We could climb the rocks and jump right in! We were right next door to Rincon, where you can park your RV right on the road next to the beach! Emma Woods State Beach was also close by, all within biking distance. We got to see beautiful sunsets. We saw a whale, a shark, sea lions, seagulls, and all kinds of little critters running around. I was always entertained. The people we camped next to were very nice. We all got a chance to tell some crazy stories. lol One night a good friend and her husband came for a visit. We had Cinco de Mayo fun! I made so many new friends, I love it. There is like a community when you go camping. We all shared all of our stuff with one another. I got to eat some pretty amazing food. I hope you like the photos. I did have my camera ready. My binoculars were used a lot also! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Have a week full of many smiles.

** If any of my new friends are visiting….Very nice to have spent some time with you all.

This SONG gets me moving at the gym..check out this VIDEO from 1979!

I find it hard to believe that this video is from 1979. I mean, check out the clothes. Look at those shades! The guitar playing is awesome. They do not make music like this anymore, in my opinion. I really think that this song ROCKS. The lyrics are strange, but they seem to work. What is your opinion?

Have fun moving and dancing.

D-A-N-C-E………

I noticed something today at the gym. I seem to dance when I exercise. I just seem to go off into the music world that is sounding off in my ears. I have one of those things the kids got me with a lot of my favorite songs, so I just d-a-n-c-e to the music and do the elliptical with no sweat!I have read that it is actually good exercise for the brain to be stimulated this way. It helps me stay young, I hope! I notice I am also one of those people who seem to LISTEN and REACT to the music that is being played whenever I go. I also manage to dance in the car lol I guess I have ALWAYS felt that MUSIC is good for the sole. Being able to EXPRESS YOURSELF in music is an ART. I tend to lean on the PICASSO side, but at least I dance in my life. Do you all FEEL THE MUSIC?

Boy..did it snow!

All I can say is, I sure am lucky my hubby grew up in snow storms in Jersey! The snow just would not stop. It was so beautiful when we were in the cabin having drinks near the fireplace. It was kind of pretty when we could see where we were driving on the way home. It was nasty when we had low visibility. I was having all kinds of panic attacks! My hubby just gave me that look! I guess being married to me over 25 years has made him that way! lol We managed to have a VERY relaxing time. We watched movies, ate delicious food, took walks in the snow, had lots of tea and coffee, and managed to say hi to a few of the neighbors before it was too hard to walk in the snow. My hubby got the snow blower working in the morning and it was not snowing at the time. Right after we loaded up the car and secured the house, it hit us big time. We just looked at each other and drove ahead. I do admit I did a lot of praying until we hit flat land. lol I LOVED the trip. Who knows when we go again. Hopefully soon.

Have a very eventful week. Be sure to smile often.

CAUTION…Be Careful who you VOTE for…JOKE*

While walking down the street one day a “Member of Parliament” is tragically hit by a truck and dies.
His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
‘Welcome to heaven,’ says St. Peter. ‘Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.’
‘No problem, just let me in,’ says the man.
‘Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.’
‘Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,’ says the MP.
‘I’m sorry, but we have our rules.’

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.
Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.
Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly & nice guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.
Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises….

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.
‘Now it’s time to visit heaven.’
So, 24 hours pass with the MP joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
‘Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.’
The MP reflects for a minute, then he answers: ‘Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.’
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.
Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.
He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder.
‘I don’t understand,’ stammers the MP. ‘Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?’
The devil looks at him, smiles and says, “Yesterday, we were campaigning.. …
Today, you voted.”

Have a fun week.

Reflecting on this week…..

What was the worst thing that happened this week to you?

I would have to say that not getting enough sleep ranks up there pretty high in my brain. I have a tendency to get up early and do a bunch of stuff and then go back to sleep for a few hours. The problem is I usually do not fall asleep till about 2:00 in the morning! I think I have a solution to the problem. I bought some ORGANIC NIGHTY NIGHT Caffeine Free Herbal Tea to try tonight. Wish me luck!

HAVE A WEEKEND FULL OF SMILES

The Command of Sir Health…….

Sir Health is a constant invader into my life.

His wife, Madam Scale is a real pain in the ass as well.

Sir Health seems to think I should not be consuming certain foods.

Madam Scale always seems to agree with him.

Sir Health feels that I do not get enough fruit.

Madam Scale proves to me every morning that he is right again.

Sir Health seems to feel I should eat more lean meats and veggies.

Madam Scale, once again has to show me he is right!

Sir Health wants me to say bye bye to lots of sugar.

Madam Scale goes off the charts on that one!

So, I am kind of listening. I have been changing what I throw in my mouth every day. I do seem to be leaning more towards the food items that are better for my system. I have to admit I have more energy. I have been going to workout at the gym. That is one of the reasons you have not seen me lately. I do feel better drinking Almond milk. I usually have a glass before bed. It is soothing for me. I love eating my greek yogurt with my gluten free waffle every morning I can. I top it off with fresh blueberries. I have been hooked on spinach salads. I have developed a taste for feta cheese, supposedly good for my blood type. I have been eating bread, but not as much. I also love protein, so I have some in between meals. I guess I am getting into this whole scene. Sorry if I bore you all with this rambling. I guess I am going now. American Idol is on tonight? Do you watch?
