Take A Flying Leap!!


         Okay...so you know that we get an extra day in the year every four years...leap year...right?!...Well, this is the year! So we get an extra day this year...and that day is TODAY!...Whoop-ti-do!! :-)) ...I mean, did we really need an extra day to let gas prices go up?...Or to have to wait for Spring to finally get here?!...Which, thanks to 'Mr. Show-Up-When-It-Wants-To SNOW', it's REALLY gonna have to wait!!...We're due to have a 'substantial' snow storm starting today! :-( They're saying 1-3 inches by tonight, and it's suppose to snow into tomorrow evening!! We may get 6-8 inches!!! O_0
        Why couldn't 'the white stuff' take a flying leap.....right OVER us?!! LOL...I was looking forward to one of the Spring months officially being here. I mean...it's been sorta kinda feeling like Spring for a while now!



      I guess I'm gonna have to get over it!.....or LEAP over it, as it were! LOL And thanks to the creative people on Etsy, I have a way to get my mind in the right place about it! ^_^ ...






         ^_^ Yep!....I'm over it now!!...Moving On!!! :-)

       Did any of you see 'American Idol' last night?!...I haven't been watching it the last few years, since Paula and Simon left. I didn't think it would be the same show anymore, so I didn't even give the new people a chance. I'm loyal like that!....or stupid like that! LOL I guess it all depends on how you look at it! ^_^ 
       Anyway...when I was fishing through my recorded shows on t.v. a couple of weeks ago, looking for something fun to look at...something maybe with music...and I couldn't find anything else.....{I had seen all of "The Voice" show recordings....LOVE IT!!!!}...I decided to peep and see whether there was any new singers worth listening to on 'American Idol'. I mean....I was crocheting...and I had ears....and I wasn't doing anything else! LOL
     I saw the 'back story' for some of the kids that were trying out and I was HOOKED!!! :-]  Has the talent been this great the whole time?!...These people are true singers!!!...Me and hubby watched the show last night...(something we haven't done for a while...watching a show at night! He usually has to be in the bed by 8 p.m. or so, so he can get up at 2:30a.m. for work!)...and it was sooooo good! ^_^ 
       Every one of them was "On"!! They were prepared, ready to perform, and their voices were just soooo beautiful!....Oh! I love music!!!!...


        They made my little music-loving heart take a flying leap!! ^_^ Here's a few of the performances from Youtube. (Sorry about the volume. It wasn't as loud as I like to hear it. ^_^)  Don't leap over these!!! LOL...






      
    Tomorrow I'll be showing you the new afghan blanket that I'm giving away as a thank you to all 300 followers of you! :-) And, of course, I'll be announcing the winner of my book of poems too!...

              If you're interested in winning it, today is the last day for you to comment and leave your "Enter Me"!!
      
        Okay....I'm off to have some breakfast with the hubby, do some studying, get our tax info together for the tax man, get back to work on that matching fingerless glove, and wait for the snow!...Oh yeah, and get myself ready for the decision that's coming today as to what we'll be doing for finances from today forward. :-/ ... Updates tomorrow...if I haven't leaped into a snow bank, never to be heard from again!!! LOL...Have a good day Everybody!! :-)

Decisions, Decisions

What should I do?
Don't know if I should go.
What should I wear?
I don't know, I don't know!

What should I say?
Don't need another foe.
Should I tell the truth?
I don't know, I don't know!

Which course should I choose?
The high road, or the low?
Will we be okay no matter?
I think so. I do think so!

Who should I be?
My peppy self or keep it low?
But can they handle it?
I don't know, I don't know!

Decisions, decisions.
Coming at you every day.
You will be just fine!
Come what may, come what may!

That's happened to me more than once!...Okay, enjoy your snow-free day!

  3. Hello,

    I agree with you, I don't want to wait for Spring any longer. I know we can't complain because this winter has been very mild...
    I haven't seen American Idol this year, not sure why... maybe because I miss Simon & Paula...

    Hope you have a nice day.

    1. Well, I'm afraid you're gonna "have to" wait now, Priscila! :-( We're getting hammered in a short while, it seems...*sigh*...But, as you say, we've had such a mild winter that we really shouldn't complain...We shouldn't...but we will!! ^_^ ...And I think a lot of us miss Simon and Paula. But frankly, I found the show fabulous!...so far anyway!..Have a good day, Priscila. Get your necessities in the house while you can!

    1. Hi Velma, DONE! You're entered! :-] ... As to the time I have to find these items, well...some of the things come to me...when people make treasuries and include items from my shop. Some of the items are from other etsy shop owners who are in my "circles". Whenever they click and heart items in other shops it comes in my feed, so I get to see too! ^_^ Sometimes it's the subject I'm talking about and I just do an Etsy search of things in that subject. That's how I got today's items. I put the word "Leap" in the etsy search bar and they all were things that popped up! :-]...I'm glad you enjoy the things I come up with! Thanks for letting me know!...As to our 'situation'...stay tuned to tomorrow's blog!

  5. I watched American idol the other week and i agree some great singers much better than the English version which i used to enjoy but not anymore and don't bother to watch it. There was a young girl that sang on your show and she had the most amazing and sweetest voice ever but i can't remember her name sadly. I hope you don't get the snow and that it does fly right past you. And spring comes sooner ;-) good luck with your taxes. dee x

    1. Hi Dee!...We don't get the English version of American Idol here. At least not that I'm aware of...But I agree about the singers...ALL of them, male and female! I do have a favorite among the women though. I wonder if it's the same one you're talking about. :-) She was in the group with another woman, and the guy with the long curly hair. Soooooo good!!...As to the snow, it's coming down by the pile!! O_0 It delayed our tax preparation even. Oh well, onward and upward! :-) Have a good rest of the day, Dee!

  7. What great treasures you've managed to share again. I love the wedding print and the oil painting.
    It's funny how you mentioned The Voice. There's an Australian version starting soon.

    1. Yes! That wedding print is one I've shared before. I LOVE it! And I love the leaping dancer in the header photo too!...Oooo! "The Voice" is so good! The one here has Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Celo Green and Adam Levine as judges. I like the whole premise of judges singers by their voice instead of what they look like first. Let me know if you like it when it gets there!
