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
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.
