For The Love Of Music: 30 June 2021

Good day friends,

Here is my song for today. Hope you enjoy it.

Breath of Life – Erasure

Never had a point of view
Cause my mind was always someone else’s mind

I never had to tell a lie
Cause I left the choices up to them
Don’t know why but I did

Oh I want life
Life wants me
To breath in it’s love

Take me I’m yours
Now I’m comin’ up for air
I’m gonna live my time
For the rest of my life
Then I’ll be comin’ back for more

I never had to call the tune
‘Cause I always drifted with the tide of the moon
(Ah la luna, my love, my love, my love)

I would go out every night
Looking for someone to treat me right
Not a chance (chance) not a hope (hope)
in this world (world)

Oh I want life
Life wants me
To breath in it’s love

Take me I’m yours
Now I’m comin’ up for air
I’m gonna live my time
For the rest of my life
Then I’ll be comin’ back for more

Take me I’m yours
Now I’m comin’ up for air
I’m gonna live my time
For the rest of my life
Then I’ll be comin’ back for more

Take me I’m yours
Now I’m comin’ up for air
I’m gonna live my time
For the rest of my life
Then I’ll be coming back for more (more)
(oh yeah) (More)

Thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to have a look at my post and listen to the my song for the day.

Morning Greetings: 30 June 2021

Good morning everybody,

Hope you all had a good nights rest. I slept like a baby last night. I woke up only once when the wind was trying to blow my house down…. Only a joke the wind was very angry last night.

Willow is not very happy because I don’t let her roam freely outside. It takes a lot of time out of my day trying to get her cleaned up after her mud baths outside. If she was just playing in the water standing on the paving it would be fine, but she dug herself a nice mudhole.

It is freezing outside and the wind is extra cold this beautiful Winters morning. According to the weather forecast we are having another very cold, wet and windy day. A maximum temperature of 14°C is predicted.

On my To-Do List for today:

  • Meditate 10 minutes
  • Edit
  • Schedule posts
  • Read for 1 Hour
  • Train Willow.
  • Gaelic Lesson 2 hours
  • Prepare dinner

With all my heart, thank you for your ongoing support and taking the time to read my post. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow, and comment I receive.

May you have a day filled with laughter and love.

Changing the way we think: 30 June 2021

Changing the way we think one thought at a time…

All of us have negative thoughts, and these negative thoughts are holding us back. Let’s try to live a more positive life by changing the way we think.

As soon as you think….

“I see many problems here.”

Change your way of thinking to….

“I see many opportunities to improve here.”

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Stay safe and think positive thoughts.

Have a Blessed day.

Grand Tour Of Scotland: Inverness

Day 5: 15 August 2019: Exploring Inverness – Part 3

I tried to find some information on Ladies Walk and the War Memorial, but there is not much.

Dad and I walked until we reached the War Memorial. We then crossed the bridge over the Ness River to continue our walk. It was a cool evening and we were starting to get hungry and decided to search for a restaurant or pup for dinner.

I took some photos along the way. If I had the time I would have stayed longer and walked further down the river, but it was getting late and we still had to walk back to the guesthouse after dinner.

Good day friends,

Here is my song for today. Hope you enjoy it.

Key To My Life – Boyzone

You’re the key to my life…
Rain on the window covers the trace
Of all the tears that I’ve had to waste
And now I’m missing you so
And I won’t let you go away
Stain on the desktop where coffee cups lay
And memories of you forever will stay
And the scent of your perfume
And the smile on your face will remain…
And I never gave up hope when things got me down
But I just bit on my lip and my face began to frown
Cos that was just my pride and I’ve nothing else to hide
And now the way is clear and all I want to say is.
All of my life the doors have been closed now
And all of my dreams have been locked up inside
But you came along and captured my heart, girl
You’re the key to my life
Yeah
Year after year, was blaming myself (blaming myself.)
For what I’d done, just thought of myself
I know that you’ll understand (you’ll understand…)
This was all my own fault, don’t go away.
And I never gave up hope when things got me down
But I just bit on my lip
And my face began to frown
Cos that was just my pride and I’ve nothing left to hide
And now the way is clear and all I want to say is…

All of my life the doors have been closed now
And all of my dreams have been locked up inside
But you came along and captured my heart, girl
You’re the key to my life

Girl you know that I feel for you
There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
Stop the thunder and the pouring rain
You’re the one that’s going to stop the pain
Girl you know that I feel for you
There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do
Stop the thunder and the pouring rain
Listen to me can’t you hear what I say…

All of my life the doors have been closed now
And all of my dreams have been locked up inside
But you came along and captured my heart, girl
You’re the key to my life

Morning Greetings: 29  June 2021

Good morning everybody,

Hope you all had a good nights rest. I slept like a log. Only woke up for the first time just after 6:00am. Got back into bed and slept till Willow came to cuddle at 7:20am.

I got out of bed, got dressed, took the trash out and then started putting the soup in containers for freezing. Gave the 4 legged children food and water and then started on the dishes and washed the Slow cooker for the next round of soup for freezing. Today I am cooking Beef, Samp and Bean soup. Dad loves it. So far I made Chicken and Vegetable Soup on Saturday, Beef Soup and Vegetable Soup on Sunday and Yesterday I made Four in One Soup. We freeze it for dad for lunch.

It is freezing cold and everything is wet. I love the winter but with Willow it is very difficult. She loves water and to keep her dry is a full time job. I have to lock her indoors now and only take her outside under supervision. The floors look like we had a mud storm inside…. In the beginning I had the mop in hand constantly. Now I just leave it and clean it up with the broom when it gets dry. It is much easier and not so messy.

According to the weather forecast we are having very very cold, wet and windy day.. A maximum temperature of 13°C is predicted.

Wet Wet Wet
Wet outside

The passage where Willow and I play ball got flooded yesterday. It is still wet this morning. Making it unsafe for Willow to run because it is very slippery. We tried it and she slipped and hit the gate hard. Now I have to get something else to keep her busy….

Wet passage making playing fetch difficult. It is slippery…
Where we play fetch.

On my To-Do List for today:

  • Meditate 10 minutes
  • Edit
  • Schedule posts
  • Keep Willow busy
  • Work on Shadow and Willow reintroducing them.
  • Gaelic Lesson 1 hour
  • Prepare dinner
