Monday's Music Moves Me...Freebie Week



Is it really Monday already? I have only one day off on the weekend and it goes so fast. However, we went up to Flagstaff, AZ via Oak Creek Mountains. It was a gorgeous ride as there was snow still up there.

When we got to Flagstaff, we went to Target which is usually a first stop for us. There was 10 million students from ASU in there shopping but the funny thing was they were all buying snow saucers. Seriously, those things were flying off the shelf!

Anyhow, being that usually Monday's Music Moves Me happens today and it is a freebie day, I am thinking about what I want to post. Usually, this is not a problem. Today, I am really having to think about it but I think I might have it.

One of the other places we enjoy going to is to two different bookstores: Barnes and Noble and Bookman's. Two of my songs will be represented by some books I found there.

First up: I found a book called, "Values from the Heartland". This gives me the idea for Neil Diamond's song, "Turn On Your Heart Light."



Next: I came upon a new book by Tina Turner called, "My Love Story." So, the music I am choosing this time is...


Finally: The last book related to my musical selections is the book by Justin Timberlake called, "Hindsight and All of the Things I Cannot See In Front of Me."  The song I am going to go with for this matching is...


Make sure you link up.
Peace out...

Saturday Stick People Reincarnated! #SaturdayStickPeople Episode 1-2019

Saturday Stick People Episode 1-2019


A few years back, I started something fun to post every Saturday called, "Saturday Stick People." The idea was to simply draw a simple scene (with stick people) about what I had planned for the weekend or what happened over the week. It was sponsored by those of us that live out in the sticks.

SOME EXAMPLES:
Stick People 1 
Stick People 2 
Stick People 3 
Stick People 4 

I invited people to join me with their drawings as long as they linked back to me. I also invited them to leave a comment so I could go visit their stick drawings.

I have decided that the stick people need to return. Today is the triumphant return with the photo above.  What do you think I was/am doing this week? I give out 100 hug points if you get the answer right. 25 hug point for just commenting.

So, come on, want to play?

7 Things That Bring Me Joy #MamaKatWritingPrompts




There are many things that will bring me joy on a daily basis. Sometimes it is as simple as finding a penny on the ground or something large like winning the Publisher's Clearing House. Okay, so I haven't really won the PCH but I can dream.

This week I was asked what 7 things bring me joy. I thought I would list the 7 most consistent things. These are in no particular order.

1. A baby's smile  just gives me unspeakable joy. I cannot help but to smile myself when I see a baby smile. Sometimes I wonder what they are thinking when I see them smiling in their sleep. I imagine it dreaming of clouds and puppy dogs. Most likely, it is because they just stunk their pants.

2. A bottle of Pepsi. I know, Pepsi has been on other lists of mine. I simply cannot help myself but I like the stuff. Since I am not a coffee drinker per se, Pepsi will be my go-to pick me up every time. I am a better joy to be around when I have had my joy.

3. Books! Hands down, I love to read! A real book in my hand gives me joy. I love the smell of them, the look of them, the feel of the pages in my hands. I love them so much that I...(Shameless plug coming)...created this blog. Reading Authors

Another Shameless Plug-This book I Co-Wrote

4. Unexpected presents.  My birthday is this Saturday and I hope I receive a present or two. I may or may not but that is no matter. What I really love is one someone gives me something unexpected. I love the surprise of it and the fact that someone took their time out to think of me. For example, I recently was given a painting from a friend that I mentioned I loved that she did. She left it on my porch for me while I was gone to work. Unexpected!

5.Old black and white photographs. Today was can choose a filter to make photos black and white but not too long ago we had actual film. I used that kind of film a lot in my years of taking photos. My Dad did too. I especially love looking at photos of people. I often will look at them and wonder what they were thinking. Who were they? I have found joy in trying to find out who they were. I also have found joy in looking at some of my Dad's old photos.

6. Making people laugh.  I think I get a ton of joy out of watching people laugh with my antics. Sometime it is as simple as some stupid hat I have put on. Just the other day, I started a plastic ball fight with my co-workers. Their fun and laughter made it a great day.

Case In Point


7. Getting to know people. I am not exactly an extrovert but not a complete introvert either. So, I do like to sit down with people and get to know them. I especially like to talk to old people and find out about them. If I take the time to listen, I can find out the most fantastic things. Not too long ago, I was sitting on a bench when an older man sat down to rest. He began telling me about himself. It turns out he was a WWII vet and had some fascinating tales.

What brings you joy? Tell me in a comment.
