It is Monday morning and I don’t work today! I always love having Monday off! I even slept in this morning, until NINE! That is three hours past when I normally get up – work day or not! Tara and I watched a movie last night and both hung out on our computers – bonding over technology!
July 4th, is just two days away. I know it’s not really the “middle” of summer, however I have always measured summer by the three holidays, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. Tara will only have been out of school for three full weeks on the 4th with almost nine to go to that makes me feel better!
My mother celebrates her 88th birthday on the 4th. I will be working on the 4th. (Holiday pay, so can’t really complain!) We will celebrate at some point. I’ve said before, I quietly celebrate each day with her! I know I am blessed to still have my Mom!
Monday’s Music Moves Me’s theme this week is PATRIOTIC SONGS! So hear we go!
Our Country – John Mellencamp
This Land is Your Land – Bruce Springsteen
This is America – The Oak Ridge Boys (I can’t do a post about patriotic/American songs without including The Oak Ridge Boys)
The Star Spangled Banner – Josh Groban
God Bless America – Kate Smith (Being from Philly, this song sung by Kate Smith has an extra meaning – The Flyers’ record when “God Bless America” is played or sung in person stands at a remarkable 94 wins, 26 losses, and 4 ties as of April 26, 2011
XmasDolly/Conductor, Lorie-The Shewbridges of Central, Florida, CALLIE – JAmericanSpice, Stacy –Stacy Uncorked, and our Cathy – Cathy Kennedy – Co-Conductors! WELCOME ABOARD!
