Hello Kittens & Dawgs! This is my last BoTB for the year. I can’t believe how fast 2017 went and I’m not hopeful that the upcoming year will be any different. Time stands still for no one!
Last time I kicked off the month with A Twisted Christmas Carols showdown and this time I did the exact opposite in choosing my all-time favorite classic Christmas carol, Silent Night. Instead, of using the typical vocal arrangement I went with three instrumental covers.
Contender #1 Rafael Scarfullery strumming a classical guitar.
Contender #2 Michael Lynch on picking a Ukulele.
Contender #3 Taylor Davis duet with herself playing the violin.
Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional). Which string artist gets your vote – guitar, ukulele, or violin?
I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players for more spectacular showdowns. Next Friday, I’ll share the results along with my vote and I hope you’ll check back to see if your pick wins.
- Snow oh no, not here which is purrfectly alright by me.
- I am ready for spring. Are you?
- One holiday memory that I cherish is the collection of memories from my childhood mostly of my brother. He loved Christmas. This will be his 11th Christmas in heaven. I sure do miss him a lot.
- I always thought that Santa left lumps of coal or a bundle of twigs for bad children. I never wanted to find these things under the tree on Christmas morning. Thankfully, I was a good girl most of the time and didn’t receive either. Of course, it might have been a clever way to get kindling for the furnance each year. Maybe it was job of the parents to be naughty so he’d leave them coal and twigs.
Aren’t you glad hung around for that? 😉
I believe everything in life is worth celebrating big or small and am playing alone with Lexa and her hostess in Celebrate The Small Things.
I am celebrating the new Christmas mewsic, Gwen Stefani’s You Make It Feel Like Christmas album that DH got me from iTunes this week after we watched her TV special. Incidentally, I shared Gwen’s complete album on Tuesday if you’re interested in listening for yourself. 😉
I’m celebrating my birthday. Actually, it was yesterday. I’m another year older which is good considering the alternative. I don’t feel any different. My brain keeps telling me I’m 18 or 20 or 30. I’m blessed with good health and can do most things that I did in my 30s. The mirror however always has something else to say about my age….if I stay in front of it long enough. I try to not hang around it too much because I’m afraid I won’t like what it has to say. 🙂 DH made me a Duncan Hines chocolate cake with caramel frosting. I wanted to try that combo for a while and was more than happy that he did it just for me and it was good. He got me an Apple Pencil that I hinted at wanting after he got me my iPad back in June which I’m love, love, lovin’! He made this gal really happy by surprising me with it. I mean, how did he know THAT was exactly what I wanted? I can’t say my husband doesn’t listen to me now, can I? lol But, he’s a darling sweetheart and I wouldn’t take anything in the world for him!
I am celebrating the completion of my Christmas shopping and cards sent out. I celebrate a little every day as I make a dish or dessert for our Christmas dinner. It helps to do these things in stages, storing it away in the freezer for the big day. It makes life so much easier! We’re in the final countdown with 10 days to go!!
What are you celebrating?
Finally, a little humor with Friday Sillies Christmas edition on “Silent Night”.
That’s all the laughs for now. Have a songtastic day; don’t forget to hit the dance floor with Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me where we’re celebrating all things Christmas!
FYI Jingle Cats is not a contender in this edition of BoTB, so please refrain from voting on it. I couldn’t resist sharing this with you! 😉
