Y is for... Yesterday

29 April 2017


For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I've decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
R - Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)

Today we're focusing on...

Yesterday

A - Yolanda Adams
Last year, I loved Tyler Perry's The Passion that featured Gospel's one and only Yolanda Adams.


R - Quotes Starting with "Y"
Last year, Courtney (Maui Jungalow) shared with me the quote "Yesterday ended at midnight." It has stuck with me this long year.

T - YouTube Videos
Last year, I discovered Kathie Lee Gifford's "Without You" song about adoption that has stayed in my heart and touched the hearts of my adoptive mom and other adoptees/ers that I know.

National Day: Superheroes and Biological Clocks

28 April 2017

Lets face it... there are way too many "national holidays" such as "National Cubicle Day" or "National No Homework Day".

But let's have some fun and address today's national days, okay?

April 28:

National Superhero Day
That's an easy one...
Michael Keaton IS the ONLY Batman. Nuff said.

National Biological Clock Day
Thanks a lot to whomever was the dodo bird who created this day...

National Workers Memorial Day
I had a relative who died in the mines several generations ago ...


National Kiss Your Mate Day:
Hmmm and what about us who don't have a mate? Does kissing my dog count? :D

Happy April 28! <3

I love children's books and the illustrations by Matt Phelan in this one are delightful.


T - Spot Marks the X
When I was a kid, the 1986 movie, Spot Marks the X, was an all-time favorite. I don't think it's available on Amazon or Netflix but someone has uploaded the movie to YouTube.

Women.

A - 
I love paintings and photographs of women who are dancing. Such grace and beauty.

R -
This is one of my favorite Poirot novels because it is when Captain Hastings (whom I named my dog after) meets the love of his life, "Cinderella". And lets admit, who among has wasn't a bit sad he was taken off the market? Gotta love ourselves some Poirot with his eccentricities and Captain Hastings with his gentlemanly goodness.
 

T - 
The Women (1939) has to be one of my favorite ensemble pieces with such wittiness and an incredible ensemble of Hollywood's best.
OnThe Women (1939).

T - Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens
In 2014, I visited Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens with my girlfriend N to see a summer concert featuring music by Handel, Rossini, Holst, etc. If you ever get a chance to go for a picnic and concert, do yourself a favor and go! :D
