“Dinner for Two” by Alyssa Nelson & A Fabulous Dinner For Three 

As I am doing photo editing of a beautiful girl I photographed earlier this evening, I heard this song come up and it was so pretty I had to stop and share it with all of you. 

I hope you all had a wonderful day. I had an unexpected surprise today seeing my great friend Leo.   He wanted to take me and his niece Antionette for dinner. I hadn’t seen in many weeks, due to his very busy schedule. I wasn’t ready when he arrived, as I was planning eating a salad and writing, doing work and was going to get a loaf of whole wheat bread rising while I did my writing thing.

This is a time where changing my plans was in order. I knew I didn’t have any deadlines on any if my projects. 

The Amazon packages I was expecting arrived minutes before I was heading out the door, like it was orchestrated almost magically to make it all work out. I was able to meet his dear friend Antonette, who just moved here only weeks ago. She is as beautiful inside as out and we got along wonderfully and we’re hugging by the time the night came to a close, which was all too soon.

I will be seeing my dear friend Lulu and I want to do some needed female bonding, which will be great. 

Antoinette-took this photo of me while we were out earlier. She would be a great photographer. 

Remember Youth Has No Age- Pablo Picasso

This comes from a fantastic, little but powerfully positive book called

You’re Doing a Freaking Great Job! By Workman Press.

I found it at one of my favorite places -Barnes and Noble Booksellers.

I took a photo of one of the pages I loved the most because I am 55 years young and still going strong.

Make each moment a stellar memory for tomorrow!

I shot this image at  Red Rock Resort Casino & Spa in Summerlin the first day that I discovered it several years ago now. The Grand Cafe there serves the most wonderful herbal teas with a nice silver tea service beautiful open-air dining area that uplifts the spirits.

 I really love it there but I live on the way north side of town way far from it now; I don’t really get over there but I plan on visiting again soon

When you do something put all you have into it. If you have to do work, make it great work. I was there late at night writing SEO Web contents and decided work and pleasure really can co-exist together!

Edith Piaf’s Beautiful La Vie en Rose Sung in French with a Jazz Band & Toots Thielemans-on the Harmonica

If you haven’t heard the beautiful, dreamy song by Edith Piaf and Louiguy: you’re in for a treat.  Here it is played by a French harmonica player “Toots Thielemans”…great name, huh?

I hope your day was as stellar as mine was. I will sleep good tonight.

I hope you do to, thanking the Good Lord for all your blessings.

Carousel by Allysa Nelson with Beautiful Images

I thought that horse looked familiar! I rode that Carousel years ago in Salem, Oregon when I had just met Mark (the now ex-husbsnd & rocket scientist, and went out to go meet his parents after we were first engaged in 1984.)

That Carousel has a wonderful history to it that’s extraordinary and is many years old, I think over 100 years. The picture on Pinterest said where it was and it’s The Riverfront Carousel and is a Historic Landmark in Salem Oregon. 

I’ve always loved carousels and the pipe organs that are built inside them because I’m a keyboard player and I played the organ when I was younger. 

Carousels are wonderful, magical things and all of the animals are hand-carved one by one on all of them. I chose pictures here that were very unique showing different animals that are not common to see on a carousel from the images that I collected from Pinterest. 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed finding them for you.

Spotify play the song carousel and I never heard the performer play before or that song. It was just funny that it was named carousel, so I thought I’d embellish it with all of these images making the original composers idea come to life.

If you love to read fabulous, reasonably priced books-Take 15% off your 1st order at DiscoverBooks.com

What led me to this fabulous used book site was BEING IN THE QUEST FOR a book called Fit for Life, which Babette Davis, A VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT OWNER OF STUFF I EAT IN INGLEWOOD, CA. 

http://www.StuffIEat.com 

I read her story yesterday morning in “Where Women Cook Magazine.”

 SHE spoke of that book Fit For Life IN HER TRULY INSPIRING STORY ABOUT HOW SHE OVERCAME ODDS AND IS NOW LOOKING AND FEELING MANY YEARS YOUNGER THAN HER CHRONOLOGICAL 

Babette spoke about how the book changed her life and her philosophy and eating and everything and I wanted to read it. 

I have been converting gradually my entire way of eating and living, so the book was a perfect fit for me.

Being an older book, and I had search different dealers and Discover Books came up first on the top of the list as having a high selection of very good quality used books- and so I checked him out.

They had a whole bunch of rare, hard to find ones about Julia Child, who I absolutely love and used to watch on the black and white tube TV when I was a kid. Yes that’s how old I am born in 61!)

I got some history makers that are like Classics in the industry in the cooking industry that Julia Child had done for as low as $5 -in great shape- and they even showed the pictures what the book would look like. 

I got a few by the great Madjur Jaffrey about vegetarian cooking. I’m going in that route and I’very been gradually changing completely the way I used to eat- putting health first and making Food My Elixir of Life.

 Also, I found “On Food & Cooking” by James Beard with a forward by Julia Child, and her Complete Guides to French Cooking, Volumes 1 and 2. All in all, after I was done, I had 14 great books in like new or good condition for about $70. 

Several of the books I purchased go for $35 each.

So, along with my digital receipt Discover Books created this link that I could share with my favorite people in my life and it extends a 15% discout your way. 

Discover books really well-organized web platform and has all varieties of books and publications period so chances are, if you were looking for a book of some kind they probably have it for cheaper price.

 AMAZON is another Bookseller that I go through periodically if there’s absolutely a book that I want that’s has pages and not a digital version but a real book, there are many books like that. I have many volumes in my library, but I go through them and evaluate if I can pass on a book to someome else who could derive more merit than I. I’ve donated large collections to libraries in California and here in Las Vegas. 

 Every now and then I give a friend a book that they’re not expecting and it makes me happy. Every time I pass on a tidbit of genuinely helpful information to another it makes me smile inwardly and outwardly.

On the bottom is the referral link.

Enjoy.

If one of my almost 3000 followers find one book that they’ve been looking for that’s  hard to find, and you’re able to get it for a really low price, then I’ll be really happy.

 It would have been worth sharing this.
