#SLS Part Deaux for 3/15/20 ~ “Give Me Love”

I mentioned I had a Plan C.  I know there is still time left but I am going off the grid to make egg rolls for the fam.  Thought I’d drop this here now.  Such a wonderful song by my favorite Beatle Mr. George Harrison.  Such good choices today.  Makes me believe Love and Peace will prevail.

Give me love
Give me love
Give me peace on earth
Give me light
Give me life
Keep me free from birth
Give me hope
Help me cope, with this heavy load
Trying to, touch and reach you with
Heart and soul
Om m m m m m m m m m m m m m
M m m my lord . . .
Please take hold of my hand, that
I might understand you
Won’t you please
Oh won’t you
Give me love
Give me love
Give me peace on earth
Give me light
Give me life
Keep me free from birth
Give me hope
Help me cope, with this heavy load
Trying to, touch and reach you with
Heart and soul
Om m m m m m m m m m m m m m
M m m my lord . . .
Please take hold of my hand, that
I might understand you

Sunday 🐏 blings 3/15/20

I’m sitting in bizarro land as I type this post. Seriously Meredith Grey. I could’ve never predicted this current state of affairs. Guess I’m not as introverted as I thought. I’ve tried reading but can’t retain the words on the page. After rereading the same sentence four times, I put the book down.

I’m trying to keep normalcy. We did our weekly shopping and got everything we needed. We resisted the urge to stockpile. Or actually we had no urge to stockpile. Made the list and stuck to it. I didn’t do my laps though. I’m one step away of breaking my routine. Guess I’ll walk this afternoon. Force myself if I have to.

Things I promise to do to stay my definition of sane:

Set the alarm and wake up at the same time despite no commute.

Resist the urge to stay in my pajamas and instead get dressed.

Take my morning walk in a different setting.

The work parts of my day are mostly virtual meetings anyway. Nothing different. Not really. Though I suspect time will crawl. Warp and wobble as it does on long lazy days. Except I will have something to do.

Nights and weekends are the worst. I want to stay in bed. My comforter is comforting. Who needs a weighted blanket? Maybe we all do?

Looking for that silver lining. This too shall pass. I’ve read about prior breakthroughs that occurred during quarantine. Time might be ripe for something new. Maybe all this has to happen to evolve? Seems like we’ve stepped backwards though.

All I really know for sure is that I need to step away from the Firestick. To be sucked in and lose all track of time is within my reach. Resistance is futile but resistance is all I have. “Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” – Dylan Thomas

As always more to come.

#SLS for 3/15/20 “Something In the Air”

Our prompts today are Give/Get/Take/Receive/Send.   I have Sirius XM through June 1 which gives me long forgotten about options.  Since my audio book is done, I have tuned into Underground Garage most often.  I’ve been contemplating my choices for over a week.  I was all set to use Elvis’ “Return to Sender”.  Even without the exact prompt words I felt it fit the theme.

But then today, apropos to the current state of affairs, this gem pops on as we make our way to the grocery store for our weekly purchase.  We are not deviating from the norm though we’ll likely be affected by those who are going bonkers.  Get a grip people!  Oh yeah, I could’ve used that one too – Aerosmith’s “Get a Grip”.   Anywho.  This right here and songs in general make it all better even the tad bit wonky piano segment.  lol.

Here are the lyrics:

Call out the instigator
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here
And you know it’s right
And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together, now

Run through the fields and houses
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here
And you know it’s right
And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together, now

Call out the instigator
Because there’s something in the air
We’ve got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution’s here
And you know it’s right
And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together, now

P.S. I also have my plan B, now renamed Plan C that I will post tonight if I don’t see it played by someone else.

As always, more to come.
