Thankfulness

Hello everybody,

Today I am just thankful for what I have in my life.  A great family, my job, the little boy I work with, no debts, my health, a nice place to come home to , my two miniature pinchers, the snow that has fallen, the wind blowing the snow,  the bright sunshine, the innocence and trust that I see in the faces of the little 3, 4, and 5 year-olds that I work with, my coffee, and the quiet moment that I am enjoying right now.

My New Test Kitchen and Band

Good low fat recipes

Yesterday was a great day!  I  made a couple of new recipes.  The low fat cheeseburger pie was pretty good.  The next time I make it, I will put some spicier seasoning in with the meat.  It was just a little bland for my taste.  My family liked it, though.  The low fat cheesecake was even better than I thought it would be.  Very tasty!  I don’t usually buy the low fat, no sugar added, sugar substitute ingredients.  I have always gone for the ‘real thing’.  “…Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby,…”  You know, the song!?

Guitar Hero

On Christmas day our family began the Guitar Hero habit.  If we can spare 30 minutes at the end of the day, the GET band rocks the house!!!  My husband came up with our band’s name, using each of our first name’s initials.  I LOVE the drums.  My husband and son choose who will be lead guitar.  Since Christmas, I have moved  up a couple of levels to the medium difficulty setting on most songs.  My favorites are Heartbreaker, American Woman, No Sleep Til Brooklyn, and Strangehold.    It is very challenging, trying to get the notes right and in rhythm.  It is so fun, I want to go out and buy a real set of drums!

What is your favorite song?

I am interested in music.  How can a person live without music?  I don’t like to exercise without music.  I love music that makes you want to dance.  I love music that makes you want to shout for joy.  I love music that can take your mind off any matter and soothe.

Here is one video that expresses all those attributes.  I ran across it when checking out YouTube.  It makes me smile every single time I watch it.  The people on the video are clearly having such a great time being silly while dancing.

Here’s my advice for anyone:   let some good music shape your day!
