Rod Stewart and The Great American Songbook

Hi Friends!  The weekend's here and I'm always glad for that.  Have you had a good week?  I'm still enjoying winter here in North Carolina.  It feels like we're actually having an honest-to-goodness winter this year, unlike last year.  However, I can tell the days are getting longer now, and I'm glad to see that, too.  I'm trying to enjoy all the seasons to the best of my ability.

Since we got our Sonos sound system last year, I've really enjoyed listening to music even more than ever.  Before Christmas, Hal ordered a compact Sonos speaker for the kitchen.  I had never thought of having one in there, but I'm enjoying that too.  Hal can watch television in the den, and I can listen to music in the kitchen -- what's not to love?
So what have I been listening to?  I'm so glad you asked.  😊

Snowflakes That Stay on My Nose and Eyelashes...

"Silver white winters that melt into spring, these are a few of my favorite things."  We're in a winter wonderland here at Forest Manor.  I know people up north get sick of this white stuff, and believe me, I would too if we had it all the time.  But some winters, we don't get a single flake, so when we do, I can't help but appreciate the beauty of it all.

A New Look

Hi All!  I made a spur-of-the-moment decision after Christmas to have my blog updated.  I had communicated with Linda Primmer a few years ago about having her do some work on the blog, but I just never got around to making a decision. 

January Days

Happy Friday everyone!  I trust you all had a good Christmas and New Year.  This is one of my favorite times of the year -- after the Christmas holidays are over and we can catch our breath again.  I love putting out my new calendars, which are like lovely, clean slates, and knowing that I have a new, promising year ahead.  Amazingly, the temperatures here in North Carolina stayed below freezing from New Year's Day until Monday, January 8th.  It made being inside the house really cozy.  The sky was blue most of that time, and I loved seeing the long shadows of the leafless tree branches.  There is beauty to be found in every season, isn't there?
I have some catching up to do for sure.  First of all, I was saddened to read about the death of Sue Grafton, author of the alphabet mystery series.  I thought it was somewhat poignant that she made it all the way through the letter "Y", but didn't make it to the end of the alphabet.
