Good Morning Everyone!
Don't you love mornings? They are so full of promise and hope for the day ahead...It could also have something to do with breakfast which means BACON! Yahooo! But how do you get a caveman like me to get up and rolling? Let's see..
I try really hard not to watch the morning news. I may not have the latest current events to talk about with friends, but WOW it's so heavy and sad in the world. Why not be in a bit of denial in the morning so I can deal with the days events of my own drama. I'm think I'm much better at coping with the world news later in the day...So, to liven things up, I throw on a few YouTube tracks to get me going!
This morning it was some Sia Chandelier, Meghan Trainor's All About That Bass and of course Taylor Swift's Shake it Off! I say I will never listen to that song again as I have heard it soon many times, but it always gets my tail feathers moving! And I don't know about you, but when there is a bit of reggae mixed into the song like Magic's Rude I somehow find myself running to the hall tree for my new Disney dread locks hat and bust a move! SCARY!
I can shake my shimmy like no one else...of course in the confines of my own bathroom...with the doors closed...locked...and the shades pulled! LOL! It's a sight no one should EVER EVER see! Scary I assure you! Don't want anyone to haul me off to the nuthouse you see...However, it accomplishes so many things...Gets me going...Puts me in a great mood...I like to think of it as my exercise (that's a plus ehhh?) and mainly it gets my fur babies up and rolling! Ellie and Sally sleep very deeply in the wintertime and DO NOT and WILL NOT get up! But with me boot scooting' around in the bathroom, I soon find them joining in on the jig and it's so much easier to get them out the door. It works!
So with all this energy, a bit of coffee and bacon of course I start my day! Today, a few samples that MUST be completed before I start work on the wall of death! Then it's time to pack up the shelving unit...OH LAWD Hep' me!!! Probably by this time I will need some more music to get my Shimmy Shakin' again...
I think at this point, we will not have Take Out Tuesday's Ustream tonight. I can only think that things are going to be in total disarray and chaos in my studio...Which I hate! But the quicker I get this done the happier my life will be...
I will post the progress of my renovation. It's actually just making an opening in my studio wall to add a bit of space. But to get there...Good Grief Gertrude! We shall see....
Better get going! Shake your Shimmy My Friends!!
