Eventually, I will open a coffeehouse w/a hobby store on the premises.I am working on ideas before it is actually open....and I love to talk. So,here I am...with a blog that is more playground and forum than anything.

Just out of the oven. :-)
I was having a day where most everything I did turned into klutziness...so, I decided to keep dinner simple tonight...Seasoned Oven-Roasted Chicken. This was yummy. I would recommend making sure to use thicker chicken breasts to avoid drying out (I achieved varying degrees of juiciness).
It is hard for me to find pink in my house...beyond my daughter's loads of pink clothing (her favorite color). This is Daughter's piggy bank...a present from her great-grandmother.
So, it looks like there is nothing much on that shelf...but I have started Spring Cleaning early. This dental pick with mirror and light was part of some blogging opportunity several years ago. Back to the bathroom it goes.
Candles from Great-Grandmother who is a big fan of cakes and celebrations. I need to have a cake and a celebration.
Ornaments that have both very sentimental memories and, more recently, troubling memories...the two are not related. Usually these are on a shelf all year but the troublesome parts of life have kept them off the tree last year. Our tree is always kept up late for certain visitors...late like February-April, depending on who is coming....so, today I made the move of ignoring certain things and on the tree they went.
CD that Kindergartener painted for an etching project with Daddy...reminding them of it later. Candle holder from college and some tealights...cue romantic dinner plans and maybe Valentine's, too.
And now there is just this Nativity that I received back when my Mother passed. It is reminiscent of another piece that she had which I am looking into restoring. I am happy with my progression from a pink item to a blue item...now to dust.
If Seal put a tiny bit more effort into this...it would be one of those things that sounds amazing if one is in the audience fairly close...his voice just seems suited for this song.
Now, you may ask, how did this number come about in the first place? I figured that one out pretty quickly.
The man on the left is Trevor Horn...a very talented man....lead singer of The Buggles ("Video Killed the Radio Star"), sometimes vocalist of the band Yes(who sings this song), often-producer of the band Yes, and Grammy Award winner for producing "Kiss From a Rose" by Seal. So, this cover was obviously an easy, and epic, pair-up....one that I wish conveyed better to the audio on this video.
