Monday Musings about Nothing in Particular…

Getting in just under the wire my time, here’s a fun winter project to keep the kiddos giggling — or just for you! Save the photo and then go into edit and mark up and give the snowman a face!

Here’s my attempt with eyes closed. He looks like he’s planning a fun holiday, I think!😉🙃😉

Happy Sunday…

In between creating Christmas goodies, I saw this on line! 🤣🤣🤣

Wordless Wednesday…

Monday Musings on Tuesday…

I’m sorry I haven’t been around too much lately.  I’ve got a new toy that I’ve been playing with and it’s been so much fun.  NO, not THAT kind of toy, this kind😂

Yep, I bought an Instant Pot, like this one, on Amazon Prime day for the amazing price of $58.99 US dollars.  If you’re not familiar with this new appliance for the kitchen, it’s mostly an electric pressure cooker that has a stainless steel inner pot that you can saute in, slow cook in, make yogurt, cook rice and even make cheesecake, my favorite.  I only had to buy a 7 inch springform pan to make the cheesecake in and that was about $10 at Amazon.

So, you know I don’t really like to cook that much.  But I’ve already made Italian Sausage and Tortellini soup, spaghetti, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, Tuscan chicken pasta and two cheesecakes in this thing.

Yes, you still have to chop the vegetables and saute the sausage or chicken before you add the other ingredients.  But when it goes into the pot, you turn on pressure cook and it comes up to pressure and cooks for the time you set and you don’t have to stir or watch or do a thing.  The macaroni and cheese literally cooked in four minutes —

Apparently you can get labels like the one pictured that I found on Facebook.  Anything to make cooking more fun!

Song a Day (5)…

Phew, I made it to the fifth day of the song challenge just in time to follow up with my first AtoZ Blogging Challenge post for the month of April!  This year I’m writing short fiction.  But, I digress.  My friend Dr. Meg at Meg Sorick, Writer, tagged me for ‘a song a day’ challenge.  Meg writes and draws and bakes.  And she’s a chiropractor — can you say overachiever??   But seriously, you need to check out her blog if you don’t follow already.  It’s wonderful.

The rules are to post the lyrics of a favorite song five days in a row, explain what they mean to you (if you like) and add the video if available.  Even my kids tell me I have the musical taste of a preteen girl, so sorry about that 😀  You are then supposed to nominate two other bloggers who can participate if they wish.  At the risk of leaving any of my dear friends out, please feel free to join in the fun!

If you know me at all, you knew I’d get to Meghan Trainor with this challenge 😉  I mean, the song is about lying boyfriends, diamond earrings and saying goodbye!  And it’s so much fun to work out (or, let’s be honest, clean the bathrooms) to this music!

Lips Are Moving

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
Boy, look at me in my face
Tell me that you’re not just about this bass
You really think I could be replaced
Nah, I come from outer space
And I’m a classy girl, I’mma hold it up
You’re full of something but it ain’t love
And what we got, straight overdue
Go find somebody new
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye
I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one
But I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Baby don’t you know I’m done
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
Hey baby don’t you bring them tears
‘Cause it’s too late, too late baby
You only love me when you’re here
You’re so two-faced, two-faced babe
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye
I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one
But I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Baby don’t you know I’m done
Come on, say!
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’,
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’,
I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue
I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one
But I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Baby don’t you know I’m done
