Happy Candlemas Day


I love my Old Farmer’s Almanac calendar as it reminded me today it is Candlemas! This is a old Celtic festival celebrating the fact that the days were getting longer and spring was not far off. The little groundhog Phil disagrees as he saw his shadow up in Puxsuatawney, PA.
I’m just rejoining that it is 50 out and sunny. My sinuses are very confused as it was half that temperature a few days ago.
Thanks for all those leaving comments for the One World-One Heart event!
My mom is ill with a bad cold along with the mouth thrush. She has two kinds of medicine and is getting little relief. I feel so bad for her and helpless. I heard plain yogurt is good for swooshing around her mouth.

Now for Manic Monday #153

What’s the most embarrassing song on your iPod (or music collection)?
I love Brick House by the Commodores! It stirs those disco vibes in my bones. : )

How much time do you spend each day in your commute? (Or if you don’t work outside the house, how much time do you spend in your car or other preferred mode of transportation?)
I hardly spend any time in my van. It’s 13 yrs old and only has 91K miles on it. However, my mom lives 23 miles away, so when I go to see her and we go shopping or whatever, I am spending a good 2 hours or more in the car in one day.
What’s your favorite wardrobe item and why?
I love my brown corduroy Bill Blass car coat and even bought another car coat-a pretty lavender one with a chartreuse lining.

  1. You’ve got 50F temps??? Aaarrggghhhh, I’m moving over there then! lol It’s 8F here right now which is actually “mild” compared to what we’re usually having.

    I’m so sorry to hear that your mom isn’t feeling well at all. I’ve heard that mouth thrush can be so painful:-( It’s no wonder she’s fed up, like Ross, it’s just one thing after another with their health. I pray that she feels better real soon.

    I’m trying to think of what my most embarrassing song is on my iPod…I guess it would have to be Stompin’ Tom Connor’s “Sudbury Saturday Night”. lol He wrote that song when he came here for a concert back in the 70’s.

    Hope you have a great week, my friend. xoxo
