Welcome to our house, and to this week's list of likes
the picture is a tease for my Creative week post on Saturday. An older quilt, and this is the center
I like quilt making...
this is my latest finish, hand sewn hexies, now quilted and on the family room table
I spent time painting this week, during morning coffee... here is one painted over one of my other likes, Kakuro puzzles, and I wondered what it would look like to paint over them
I made homemade cream of mushroom soup and Keto Almond flour biscuits to go in this...
the chef calls it Chicken cobbler.... and it was so good, and enough for three lunches for two
I love as Joy calls them, "planned-overs" the recipe is here
I've been meaning to tell you I like this jade roller, for reducing inflammation. I use it at night on my face for sinus and allergy issues. Feels good and does seem to help.
I do not look 25 again, but it feels good
got mine at Bed Bath and Beyond... it's closing better hurry
Watching on youtube
our Prompt this week is:
"do you like to sing for yourself, or others?
do people recognize your ability or has anyone said you're not a singer? Do you judge yourself or sing for yourself? other suggestions: do you make up songs during the day, do you sing to babies? are you more comfortable singing high or low?
I remember seeing the movie Love is a many splendered thing when I was quite young, and loving the song so much I used to sing it all the time. I sang all the kids songs of course, itsy bitsy spider being my favorite with the finger motions. Jesus loves me...
I was always in the band in school, so I never had time to be in chorus where the "real" singers were
I always make up songs around the house, sometimes using another song as the musical base. I sing a lot to Milo who wonders why he isn't allowed to bark if I can make that noise.
I have a low alto voice, my favorite singer was Karen Carpenter... we sang at the same register.
I was in a number of musical stage productions as a young adult, and in each audition you must sing, dance, and do a spoken recitation. Once I got a call back saying they were hiring me to sing in Kiss Me Kate... I kind of faltered for a moment, and asked, " as a dancer you mean" and they said, nope, you're one of our singers. Well then,
I often think about studying voice now. I can hear notes that are off from my years of piano and band, but can't always make my aging voice make the correct sound. I would love to be better at singing harmony with someone else too.
I was a wench for years and years in the Renascence Festival, and we often sang old songs as we went along the path. I remember once someone saying to their friend, oooo she's good. Well, for once the song was sung at a low register.
As a child, I imagined myself a singer/dancer. If imagining something and dreaming it, and seeing it in my minds eye makes it true, that would be nice. At parties with strangers, and someone asked what I did, I responded I was a dancer on Broadway, er OFF broadway. With a straight face I said that.
When a judge on American Idol puts down a singer by calling them Broadway/stage performers, I think, that's the best. Those singers pronounce words so you understand them while keeping in perfect pitch, night after night.
I love to sing, and love to hear singing....
Milo here, I love playing with Daddy, and for some reason I love rolling on my back in the yard so I can win the ring toy tug of war
plus I always get a massage of my tummy!
Mama: yes... you'll roll over on the dried grass that gets in your fur, but not inside the house when I need you to...
Milo: yesssss if you want me to, it means you're gonna check something out on me that could require medical intervention and I do not want ANY part of that!!! Love ya'but...
so anyway, it's about time for you to brush off all this dried grass junk, and go inside and eat!
now please visit these fine folks to see what they liked this week, and tell me your singing history please, I love stories!
