Project 366: Day 92

As is typical for me, I’m taking this day off; yes, even on this first day in April, also known as April Fools Day, I am taking the day off.

Today is my day to simply breathe and give thanks for all I have.

While I enjoy my day of rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this song bird, which serenaded me while I was visiting the Oakland Cemetery. I hope you’ll give thanks for all you have, too. Read more

Somebody’s Out There

I am participating in Monday Listicles, a weekly creation started by Stasha at The Good Life. The idea for today’s list comes from Bruna at Bees with Honey“If they were to make a movie of your life what would the soundtrack be like? Share 10 songs that best tell the story of your life. Be sure to include the period or event that each song represents.”

Initially, I had all sorts of songs I wanted to include in the soundtrack of my life – many more than 10, that’s for certain. However, as I began writing and remembering, I realized my life today is what matters most to me. Rest assured, I still managed to embarrass myself by revealing just how desperate I was in high school. (My apologies in advance, Joe and Charlie.)

Reflections while crossing the bridge

While looking around for the perfect picture to use for the first entry in my pictorial journal, I noticed the reflection of our Christmas tree in a framed photo on the wall. In addition, I noticed the light, from the light on the mantel and the sun through the window.

The glow from the light on the mantel shows off the Christmas tree Charlie made this year in school. The light coming in through the window shows light beyond the tree – beyond Christmas – into the new year.

December 24th – Performance No. 24

In case you are new here, you’re late. No worries, better late than never.

I am on day 24 of 25 days and 25 different performances of the Christmas song, “O Holy Night”. If you are good at counting, you may notice we only have one day left.

Two of my sisters and I love the song “O Holy Night”. After a series of emails with one of my sisters, I came up with the idea of sharing different versions/performances of the song “O Holy Night”.

I wish you a merry Christmas Eve, as I welcome you to version number 24. Read more
