Sunday 🐏 blings 12/8/19

New category alert!!  Ramblings.  Yay!!!  Or Ugh!  I can hear the crowd cheer and groan.  Or maybe smile and wonder what is Jilly up to?  Who knows?

Short story really.  I decided my Life category was getting too full by becoming a catch-all of sorts. But no more!  I won’t waste time re-categorizing.  New posts only from today on.

Time is zipping along and I am in the typical Eeyore head space for this time of year.  Swimming against the current while trying not to be Ebeneezer Scrooge.  I can hear B on the phone with Lulu.  He talks to her EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!  He started doing that after … well after the terrible awful and he has yet to miss a day.  He is not going to be the reason something goes south.  Nope.  He tells her he doesn’t text and she has to take his calls.  Which she does and secretly enjoys.  Me?  I get the I can’t talk now.  Which is fine since mostly I have nothing to say.   Sadly I could go weeks without speaking.  Reading and writing doesn’t count.  All three are expressions but speaking is way too much work most days.

What’s on my mind?  More than I can say.  The first anniversaries of a million little things are about to hit us.  Mainly Pony but the rest of the family too because we love him.  He’s doing better.  Well he appears to be doing better.  No one ever really knows anyone.

At least he hasn’t lost his sense of humor.  He recently told me that he can no longer feel his second chin which means he might shave the beard and see what’s under there.  He has lost a considerable amount of weight … on purpose.  Part of taking back control.  Of course his weight was not the issue but only a symptom.  He is addressing the root cause.  Makes my heart happy.  Now to sustain that happiness without finding anything else to obsess about.  We all know I am the queen of MSU – making stuff up.

Ta-ta for now but I’ll be back.  You can count on it.  Seriously?  Yes Meredith Grey.  Seriously!

As always, more to come.

#SLS for 12/8/19 ~ “Hot Legs”

Jim gives us prompts arm, elbow, legs, or knees. When I first saw the prompt, all I could think of was ZZ Top’s “Legs” but since I recently used a ZZ Top song, I went looking elsewhere.

That’s when I rediscovered “Hot Legs” by Rod Stewart. I had the album Foot Loose and Fancy Free which I played on a loop. I remember using my own money to buy it from Record Rendevous a mom and pop record store in McCreless Mall. I’ll never forget their window displays. The covers were works of art. The year before I’d bought A Night on the Town which was meant to be like an impressionist painting. Foot Loose was simply Rod’s cool self on the cover. Looking all Tubbs and Crockett in a light color suit. I loved every song on both those albums. Here’s the video. Lyrics within. Hope you enjoy.
