miscellaneous NEW stuff


How was your weekend?  Mine was pretty relaxing…that’s a good thing, right?   I stayed around the house because my hubby was doing a project – and he likes me to stay close by in case he has a ‘design question’.  He’s very handy, and always likes to make things just the way I like them to be :o)  Yes, I’m a VERY lucky gal!

Anywhoo!  Here are a few miscellaneous thoughts from my weekend:

This month…since it’s November, I’m going to steal the idea from Snippets from Springdale and concentrate on gratitude this month.  I have SO MANY blessings that I’m truly grateful for, and I need to express that gratitude….either through word or photographs on this blog.  Isn’t that an excellent idea?!?!?

Also…I very rarely watch a movie more than once, but this weekend I ended up watching the Princess Bride again.  I saw this video snippet about one of the actor’s favorite lines from the movie:  CHECK IT OUT HERE!   It’s so true that our perceptions change as we go through this life,  and things we don’t even notice when we’re younger make an impression later as we have more experience to glean from!  So that little clip made me want to watch the movie again!  It’s a GOOD movie!….and I LOVE that line now as well!

Lastly, I spent a bit of time at the piano this weekend.  I recently needed some NEW sheet music {yeah, I get tired of the same ol’ music quite oftenas I’ve mentioned before}, so I learned to play the fun piece from The King and I called ‘March Of the Siamese Children’.  It’s a fun piece to play and every time I play it, it reminds me of the {SOOOOO CUTE!!!} children in the movie!

Again, I  hope you all had a GREAT weekend!  Let me know what NEW things you did!

  1. What a fun post. I love The Princess Bride–and that quote is terrific. I also appreciate the reminder to be grateful. It is something I strive for each day, but some days I get forgetful and do not keep my list. I have written about gratitude in the past and am listing two of those posts here. One refers the reader to other posts and their take on gratitude: http://learnmoreeveryday.wordpress.com/2011/06/24/a-gratitude-chain-reaction/

    And the second does a bit of a book review of the book One Thousand Gifts–the book is great! http://learnmoreeveryday.wordpress.com/2011/06/03/saying-thanks/

    Today, your blog posting is going on my gratitude list! Thanks.
