Dance is Happiness, Love and Life

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined; No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

Whoever said happiness comes with sunshine, has never danced in the rain.

There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.

Five Friday Happy Bringers (8/17/12)

I ADORE Friday, don’t you?  And here are five things I’m Hooting Happiness about.

1.  I really like myself.  I’m weird and full of quirks (LOVE slimy okra, for example) but I like who I am and where I am at this stage of my life–which I continue to insist is “early middle age.”  (Dear AARP:  Please STOP sending me coupons and deals!  Well, except for Wendy’s,  Oh, and Bed, Bath and Beyond.  Thank you.)

2.  This delicious and pretty tomato salad I made after I saw it on the cover of a food magazine at Barnes and Noble the other day.  (Do you know that they let you just sit around for hours on end perusing their magazines?!  I am cancelling all magazine subscriptions and going to B & N from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. M-F to read magazines.  Feel free to join me.)

3.  Younger Daughter Emily’s two-week-old twins Madison and Matthew.  Here’s Madison trying to figure out What’s Up with Matthew’s yelling up a storm.  Goodness!

Calmed down:

4.  Grandson Daniel’s new tennis shoes (do they still even call them tennis shoes?)

Here are the shoes (which light up in the dark) when we went into a closet.  If you squint, you can kinda see them.

5.  Getting my haircut.  I went to The Living Room Salon on Bull Street here in Savannah yesterday.  Had a great time.  Here I am waiting forty minutes for the color to set, I mean the de-grayification.

And here I am after, orange, for some reason.

Have a colorful weekend!

Staring Contest #2

Since after 14 hours I finally won Staring Contest #1 a while back, I decided to challenge a master, former GSU legendary head football coach Erk Russel in Staring Contest #2.







Oh I forgot to tell you, before the struggle of the two titans began, I invoked the time-honored tradition of rubbing the coach’s head to ensure victory.

(Hours, days pass.)

Yes!! Triumphant once again! So why is his name still up there?
