Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! It’s Monday and I’m feeling so happy still after last week’s presidential election. So, I decided to go pure music today. No gabbing or on and on stuff. I’m sharing with you tunes that make you celebratory, victorious, or just plain happy!

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! This week I spied vintage footage of women exercising in the 40s. Dang, I’m doing it all wrong, too! You can guess where this morning giggles are going, right? Join me for more exercise humor on Sunday Sillies!
Good morning, kittens & dawgs! This month I’m dancing to the blessings in my life. One thing I’m very blessed to have is good health and the energy to not quit when my body tells me nooo more!
Are you ready to boogie? Lace up those blue suede shoes and step out on the dance floor with me!

Nothing says good health, like the way good music makes me feel and the way it makes me feel groovy…
Or, how happy it makes me feel….
What it all boils down to is Life is too short to not be my best. God has blessed me with good health and it’s my responsibility to not waste it. I think it was Billy Blanks who said something to the effect fight to be fit for life and because I’m able, I try to live by this principle. The simple truth is I want it all!
When I’m not dancing (yes, I really do this) around the house doing my chores. I love to spend an hour on my elliptical trainer each day. What activity do you do to keep fit for life?

Welcome to Monday’s Music Moves Me!
Tell me that song didn’t make you feel good this morning coz every time I hear it those feel good vibes set my whole body in motion. It makes me feel so good that I bought the single!
To all of you newbies on the dance floor, we are partying “freebie-style“. This works out perfectly for my new blog challenge. I have a theme for a no-theme week with some of my favorite feel good music for a feel goodmoodto wipe away those Monday blues.
Over the past two weeks I have come across two or three bloggers excited over a little DIY project in which they put together a little thing called a gratitude jar.
What’s a gratitude jar? It’s simply a container that I will gradually fill with my blessings scribbled down on pieces of paper. There is no set time or day when I can add my thanksgivings to the gratitude jar. I can just do it when ever I feel especially happy about something in my life.
What do I need for a gratitude jar? All you need is a few basics, like a container, paper, and pen. I kept my DIY project simple using stuff I already had on hand, like an old 64 ounce jar my mother-in-law gave me . I decorated mine with a piece of purple polka dot ribbon. I am writing my happy moments on a small pad of colored stickies with whatever pen is handy. Some people get really creative with decorating their gratitude jar and doing more than just including written reminders such as adding small objects inside their gratitude jar. That’s cool. Just have fun with it!
What is the purpose of a gratitude jar? It is easy to loose sight of how good I have it. On December 31st, I will open my gratitude jar and begin to read all the grateful/happy moments that I wrote down throughout the year. Hopefully, my activity will bring a smile to my face, warm my heart, and fill me with a greater sense of gratitude whenam reminded of all the good things 2014 held for me. As the New Year rings in, I’ll throw out the old blessings to make room for the new ones.
Putting a twist on the gratitude jar. Is there someone in your life that’s difficult to buy for? I know I do. I thought why not use the gratitude jar principle and instead of writing down blessings from my life, but jot down reasons why I am thankful to have a certain person in my life periodically and then at a given time say like Christmas gift the gratitude jar to that person.
A tease in the soon-changing season was ever-present on this gorgeous Saturday. It was a beautiful sunny day with rich blue skies. It was perfect weather for grilling–not too hot or cold, just right. I had just placed some New York Stripes across a sizzling grate, when a truck drove by our home slowly. I noticed a kid in the truck bed wearing a Tennessee jersey and I thought, no doubt thousands of Big Orange fans were preparing to enjoy the first game of the season at Neyland Stadium could sense Autumn, too.
I soaked up the pre-fall temps and glorious ambience. Just thinking about the weather cooling down made me giddy, especially after such a hot summer as we have had. My mind drifted, aah, the pleasant days which melt into even more pleasant evenings and ooh how the air had an almost mountain-like fresh scent. A smile crept across my face as I breathed in deeply while imagining autumn was here. The aroma of the steaks brought me back to reality and I knew I had a few more weeks before this materialized.
It wasn’t long, before a gyro of thoughts filled my head that I wanted to do with Autumn on my heels like to get some fall mums and pumpkins to decorate our front porch, make oatmeal cookies for Sunday night football, enjoy hot coco on cool mornings, and wearing snugly sweats. There’s a time and a season for everything, I know, but I couldn’t help but to wish my days away just a little to savor Autumn delights a wee bit sooner. I’m counting the days until the first day of fall arrives.
