Snowy Days and Mondays..I Won't Let Them Get Me Down

This is what greeted me as I looked out the back door this morning.

But, I refuse to let it get me down.

Yes, it is gray.

Yes, it is cold.

Yes, it is snowy.

Yes, my raised beds are filled with snow.

But, since it is gloomy outside, I have decided to make it SUNNY inside.

And I will continue on with the record theme. I gave a clue as to what group I am highlighting today in my title....you guessed it, The Carpenters.

My sister IEG was a big Carpenter's fan. The two albums I remember listening to the most were



and



On the Carpenters album was a song called Sometimes. This song has stuck with me throughout these years, and I sing it every so often, especially when I am feeling particularly grateful to someone for what they did, but I haven't had a chance to tell them so.

I loved this video, because it gives the story of how it was written. And I also didn't realize the music was written by another favorite of mine, Henry Mancini. This song is dedicated to all of you who come and read my blog, and give me encouragement. I often don't say it enough, but thank you.

Bugger, I had better not tell you about how beautiful a day it was here today, after a frosty start this morning at 6.30 when I let me chickens out, it turned out to be T-shirt weather for most of the day......

Yours will soon be there, its just around the corner, I promise...

Okay, I guess I'll have to hop on a plane to England if I want to find some spring weather!!!

or you could come up my way... it is feeling like spring more and more. When I went on my Carpenters obsession tour on night on YouTube I was struck by how Karen Carpenter changed right before my eyes as she got thinner and thinner. It made me very sad.
