Here are your questions for this week:

  1.  Do you find it relatively easy to fall asleep at night? Yes, I usually fall asleep as soon as the lights are out, unless I am in a terrible state of anxiety.
  2.  Do you remember your dreams? Most of the time I do. There are a lot of times I will remember it days later. I wish I would write down my dreams the minute I wake up and recall them because within two minutes they vanish
  3.  If you can’t sleep, do you watch TV, read or listen to music in the hope you will nod off? I usually play a game on my phone until I fall back asleep
  4.  Can you literally sleep anywhere (chair, sofa, bus, train, flight, etc)? Yup! Desk at school, beach, nail salon, during a haircut…Anywhere I can sit and not have to do something physically active.

Gratitude: I’m thankful that I have more food in my house than I know what to do with it. I see these commercial for kids who are starving and think , how does that happen?

What is the best way to cook an egg, and what is your favourite egg dish? The best way to cook an egg is over medium. My favorite egg dish changes. One favorite is a fried egg on a bagel with a slice of Kraft American Cheese (Welfare Cheese).

What makes for a good listener, and are you one, or do you only hear people as noise? A good listener knows when to keep their mouth shut and not interject. Also, a good listener can feel comfortable NOT hearing their own voice.

How well can you control your emotions, and is it hard to keep them in check with moments and times when you feel passionate or angry with others or situations? I can control my emotions pretty well in that I don’t over-react or make a scene. The most I do is cry and that could be as simple as a tear rolling down my face.

Is it necessary for you to be remembered by others for your contribution to life? I would like to be remembered for things I create but not just for the daily stuff I do just because I am caring and sensitive,

I know this is an old complaint but I still can’t stand it..

I can’t stand it when people are talking on their phones in a store. I get it if you want to get the name of the brand your partner wanted or maybe you found something on Clearance your husband might love,,,

But I’m talking about “Well, I was going to make dinner for just me and Brad but his dad callled…Yeah I know…What?! Are you kidding me? Oh, well this is how I would’ve handled it”

I really don’t want to hear your plans or you bad mouthing your best friends’ brother’s wife’s second born son.

Country Music: Song Lyric Sunday

Jim is the host of Song Lyric Sunday and this week the theme is Country Music https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2023/01/21/what-is-country/

When I was in high school I had a boyfriend who said he liked country music and I said that I did not because it sounded like “suicide music”. I don’t think that was my name for it, probably something I heard. Anyhow, what I thought of country music was whining women about the guy who did them wrong, yada yada yada. He introduced me to Hank Williams and Alabama, to name just a couple favorites. Well, after this I was open to hearing more country music.

In college, I worked in Disney World for a semester on the college program. There was a bar, I think closer to Cocoa Beach than Lake Buena Vista, called Rodeo. I only went once or twice but I wanted so badly to learn line dancing. I never really did.

Now I do still listen to country, but mixed in with other stuff. After losing my first husband I listened to a song every day on the way to and on the way home from work that helped me cope.

Lyrics

I got rice cooking in the microwave
Got a three day beard I don’t plan to shave
And it’s a goofy thing but I just gotta say, hey
I’ma doing alright

Yeah, I think I’ll make me some home-made soup
I’m feeling pretty good and that’s the truth
It’s neither drink nor drug induced, no
I’m just doing alright

And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good
Ah, yeah

It’s been fifteen years since I left home
I said good luck to every seed I’d sown
Gave it my best and then I left it alone
I hope they’re doing alright

Now I look in the mirror and what do I see
A lone wolf there staring back at me
Long in the tooth but harmless as can be
Lord, I guess he’s doin’ alright

And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good

Sometimes it’s lonely, sometimes it’s only me
And the shadows that fill this room
Sometimes I’m falling, desperately calling
Howling at the moon, ah-ooh, ah-ooh
Yeah-yeah, oh-oh

Well, I might go get me a new tattoo
Or take my old Harley for a three day cruise
Might even grow me a Fu Manchu

And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good

It’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good, ah-ooh, oh yeah-yeah

Then as the days went on and I heard other tunes by other artists this song by Marin Morris became sort of my anthem. She isn’t necessarily considered full country but she fits in there.

Lyrics

I’ve cussed on a Sunday
I’ve cheated and I’ve lied
I’ve fallen down from grace
A few too many times
But I find holy redemption
When I put this car in drive
Roll the windows down and turn up the dial

Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church

When Hank brings the sermon
And Cash leads the choir
It gets my cold cold heart burning
Hotter than a ring of fire
When this wonderful world gets heavy
And I need to find my escape
I just keep the wheels rolling, radio scrolling
‘Til my sins wash away

Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church

Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church

Hey, can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church
Yeah I guess that’s my church
Yeah I guess that’s my church

Amazon Mystery Box

Has anyone ever bought one of these? Sounds fun but…

https://us.topnnews.com/mystery_box.html


Nearly $300 billion in products are returned to Amazon every year. You won’t believe how they are handled…

It’s the best time of year to shop $29.99 Amazon Electronic Pallets only sell 2 weeks out of the year, if you miss out, you’ll have to wait another year

I want to buy one just for the surprise factor but then what? I guess you can try to resell it and make money. Ugh, sounds like a lot of hassle.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

I never was a girl for the Barbie pink
Just another thing that didn’t feel right
Back then the shades of pink made my heart sink
Without understanding the reasons why
A colour can bring the heart to such plight
With only confusion my tears to cry

All I ever wanted was shades of blue
To echo feelings that lived inside me
Even then it was something I just knew
I didn’t want dolls or the other girl toys
All of that just was not how it should be
When I should have been just one of the boys

I never was a girl for the Barbie pink
All I ever wanted was shades of blue
