Kitchen Band

Candy, Melba, Sandi Morales

Here's one thang that keeps my life so full...
my mother-in-law, Melba--93 yr. young,
and the kitchen band at her
retirement home.
We are the three ukulele players
along with seven other ladies playing
wooden spoons, a wash board, and
a few pots and pans.

Our latest show "All About Girls"
was recently performed for all the
residents and again for a private
company luncheon hosted by
Horizon Bay, San Marcus.

The song list included such numbers as Ain't She Sweet, Five Foot Two, If You Knew Susie, Dinah Is There Anyone Finer, My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean, Ida Sweet as Apple Cider and Ramblin Rose. Melba does what she calls the walker waltz to show folks with walkers they can still dance. And then we close out the show with Goodnight Irene and Toot, Toot, Tootsie, Goodbye.

Joining in with
Pink Saturday
to say
Keep a song in your heart...

Busy Hands

If nothing ever changed
there'd be no butterflies
It has really helped me focus on creating
since I established crafting Wednesdays
in my studio. It makes my heart happy!

I always put a little leopard print in
each piece...RockCandy's wild spirit.

Heartfelt wishes that you
have a wonderful day...

'A'dventures at Round Top

Rock Candy's mode of attack,
jump in without much thought.
Then as a pattern develops
adapt and adjust.


my story ends at the beginning

Case in Point
Working Backwards
Adventures at Round Top

Arrived by following the signs

Stop Ahead?
not hard to do at this table
while on the other side of the tracks,
and coming in ahead of the rest were
these classy gals.

Things weren't just ahead but also

Artful lights in jars

in wire baskets
and shades

At Oma's Country Cottage

there was an array of artificial flora.

I counted 39 but could have missed one or two.

Largest ANTIQUE show in Texas
is heaven to
artist and artful people

'He has put a new song in our hearts'

Yes He has...
