Musical Monday # 106

Musical Monday I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site. I think it’s a fun way to show off some of the music we like and brighten up our Mondays at the same time.  I’ll be finding my clips on you tube, so will simply credit that site since there are often so many versions of everything and I wouldn’t want to accidentally credit the wrong artist. Today’s clip is: Rod Stewart Rhythm of My Heart and the lyrics :)

Sunday Selections # 282

Welcome back to Sunday Selections! This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs. The rules are very simple:- 1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title 2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post 3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted. 4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.   I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week once again, I have garden photos for you.

Wednesday's Words on a Friday

On Wednesdays, assorted people have been taking monthly turns at putting up a selection of words which is called “Words for Wednesday”. We have taken over this meme from Delores, who had been having computer problems. This month the meme continues right here, with words supplied by me!

Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog.   We would really like it if as many people as possible joined in with this fun meme.

This week's words are: 1. brew 2. bellicose
