Friday Fun

Time for some Kitchen Dancing!

Say what you think
Love who you love
‘Cause you just get
So many trips ’round the sun

~Kasey Musgraves, Follow your Arrow

This month marks my 47th trip around the sun.

While age is not something a woman wants to talk about, you caught me at a “peace with myself” moment and I thought, “What the heck! Send in the cake!!”


It helps that it’s been one of those really good weeks a person relies on when days we’ve passed or those to come might not be so great. Golden rays have finally found their way to the tulips and our poor pent-up pooches have run of the yard again. The snow is almost melted and my heart is full of love and gratitude for the many special people in my life.

In addition to being productive at work, I played with the camera on my photography site and read fairy tales all while enjoying having a newly retired hubby to supervise keep me company during my day job activities. There are 60 healthy tomato plants renting basement space under the grow lights, Dane is starting to drive and Tanna Banana will be coming home for the weekend.

Life is soooo good and I feel like dancing!


I also have a fancy new skill that I’m dying to show off. Christy gave Jennie and I a YouTube assignment this week where I learned how to put together a playlist. I have been messing with this new obsession for the last couple of days, so stay tuned and check over on RoS soon to see what she did.

In the meantime, here’s my Friday happy song playlist for you. These three tunes are intended to make you:

  1. Smile
  2. Hug someone you love
  3. DANCE!

(note: since I’ve been around the sun so many times, I just happen to remember seeing #3 when it first happened on American Bandstand back in the days of green polyester and sequins)

Always a fan of dancing in the kitchen, I hope you’ll ditch your inhibitions for a little bit and whirl someone you love around the table a few times. Don’t worry about style points or looking silly. Hubby was knee-deep in his third episode of Duck Dynasty when I interrupted him with some spontaneous, interpretive dance. He just worries I’m gonna hurt myself.


For Nancy, a fellow soul sister/Pisces who also celebrates another time around the sun this month and for Victoria who follows her arrow better than anyone I know.

Much love and muchness to you all!

  1. Have a great birthday! The more passes I make of the sun, the more I realize the 40’s aren’t too old. Age is relative. We’re ancient to teenagers, but still very young. And we’re wiser and know more than teens…so yeah!


  2. OMGoodness — you know how to pluck my heartstrings. I have a huge smile on my face, and this was so timely. I also have tears in my eyes — happy tears, of course. 😀 That tune ROCKed even though it’s country, lol. My new favorite, thank you so much for the dedication and for turning me on to it. Great message!

    AND, last but not least,

    You KNOW how much I (we) love you! :mrgreen:



    1. Awww….so sweet Victoria! Sorry for spitting the tea all over the keyboard when I saw the card with the dentures! That’s the most birthday cards I’ve ever gotten and it’s not even my birthday yet!
      Glad you like the songs…even the Country one. I’m luring you over to the other side slowly but surely 😉
      I expect that you danced along?
      (and yes, the Arrow song was totally for you!)


      1. Nono, your work must continue. After all, I will need, from time to time, some of that yummy, potent nectar you stash in your shed, and chocolate bon bons — lots and lots of bon bons. Who cares if I get fat. I’ll be fat, sassy and happy. 😀

        Cheers, and have a fantastical weekend. xx


    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I truly do try to be upbeat most days and am so glad that came through. I popped over to your blog for a moment and can’t wait to read more. Love the phrase “emerging writer.” I’ll be sure to head back over there and read more.
      Hope you are having a great weekend!


      1. Ah lovely to hear from you! I enjoy your blog so much. It’s been a beautiful day here. Hope sun is shining in your neck of the woods 😉


  3. Happy Birthday month to you! And I’m very impressed with your use of the playlist, especially as I still can’t make the things post myself 😉

    And now, because it must be done (you said birthday and muchness in the same post, it would madness not to! Or should that be “madness to”? Either way … )



      1. Michelle, Happy Birthday.

        See, I KNEW your birthday was sometime this week which is why I sent multiple cards a few days ago, to cover each day this week. 😛 I only mention this because of your comment to me that it wasn’t even your birthday yet. LOL

        Hope you have a fantastical, magical, fun-filled day. Love ya!

        PS — I’m still dancing. 😀


  4. There is much to be said for dancing and singing whenever the mood strikes. I have found myself doing the latter on many occasions, and then I’ll snap out of it and be like “I’m in the middle of Target . .” . . . and you know what? Doesn’t matter. It’s all good.
    Looking great Mama, keep up the fine work.


    1. Awww…thanks so much for your kind words. I’m especially glad to know that I’m not the only one dancing in the Target aisles.Turns out I’m in excellent company! Thank you dear Cayman!
