So, here goes........
The theme of the meme = you list seven songs/Cd's that you've listened to recently and then tag seven people.
Well, I don't listen to too much music. I have some interesting songs I like for the blog, but it's limited to what Sonific has in their archives. On my mp3 player I just bought, I have a lot of old dance music from around the year 2000, I listen to when I exercise. I haven't bought a CD in a while.
I hardly ever listen to music in the car, and at work, it's a top 40 type station in the background.
So, back to this meme.
Seven songs I've listened to recently........ would be the different songs I've had on my blog.
I think how I'll do this, is every 3 days, I'll put a different song on my blog, till I reach 7 songs.
Currently on my blog is,
1. Dream by Moodfood.
On Monday, April 2nd,
2. Hot and Sweet by Zuela.
On Thursday, April 5th.
3. Perpetual Moves by Miguel Samiez.
On Sunday, April 8th,
4. C me by Ox Cohen.
On Wed. April 11th,
5. Nile dances by Andre Centazzo.
On Sat. April 14th.
6. Passion Dance by tomas Michard.
On Tues. April 17th.
7. The Wandering Trickster by Windwood.
This may not be how I'm suppose to do this meme, But I'm taking creative license to interpret this as I wish.
Oh, and then it says to tag 7 other poor unsuspecting bloggers........ I don't think so. But if any of my readers would like to jump on the meme bandwagon, go for it!

Upper 60's to low 70's! Almost 20 degrees warmer than normal. So I took advantage of it and cleaned and sealed the roof of the Motor Home and washed the entire Motor Home.
And if you think washing your car is a lot of work, look at the mo-ho next to our car and truck!
Also checked the tire pressure, and started up the refrigerator and furnace, to make sure they were still working. We'll un-winterize the water system just before we leave on our first trip. We are still going to get freezing weather, and once I un-winterize the water, I'll have to leave the furnace on so the pipes don't freeze.

Another thing I did was purchase an mp3 player! Dang, soo much music in such a tiny thing! I love the new technology!
And it only cost me $8.49! That's right, a 2 gig mp3 for $8.49?
That's because I used my points I've accumulated from my credit card for a Best Buy gift card! If you use a credit card and pay off the balance each month, you really should have a rewards card! It's like free money! And that's how I bought my nifty little
6 mega pixel camera!
The other thing I did was pick some Pussy Willows from the back of our yard. They are the first true signs of spring! I put them in our Salon. Mine get 3 to 4 feet long! The secret to that, is each spring cut the bush back by a third, and it will force the bush to grow longer new shoots, which will become the buds for the following spring! Customers rave at how long they are!
Spring is slowly creeping forth!

Then we went for a drive around the downtown area to see what's new. Then a quick stop at Meijer's for some things she needed,
and then to Red Lobster for lunch!
Mom had the Blackened Catfish. I had their wonderful New Orleans Salmon! Best Salmon ever! And of course
those little Cheddar Biscuits, and an appetizer of Lobster and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms!
After lunch it was off to the local VFW,(Mom's a member, cause Dad served in WWII) where we enjoyed some after dinner cocktails, (they're really cheap there), pull tabs, and sports on their various tv monitors.

North Carolina was just too good.
But with no seniors on our team,
we should be a lot better next year!
Today I'm off to Muskegon,(90 miles west of Lansing) to see my Mom.
She's recovered completely from her
heart attack .
She needs a haircut, then off to Red Lobster for lunch.( they've got great fish!)
Craig's staying home to do bookwork, (there's always a lot of that when you own a business) and laundry.
Spring is slowly arriving. The temps this weekend should be around 40. And next week near 50.
It's looking good!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

In the first picture, posted here back on March 4th,
we were still in the icy grips of winter.
But over the last couple of weeks,
we warmed up into the 40's.
This last weekend, in the 50's.
Yesterday it hit 70!
The second pic was taken on Sunday,
and the last one yesterday.
The snow is almost gone!
It is suppose to get cold again this weekend,
but the long term forecast is looking good.
I think spring is on it's way!
Spent the weekend,(remember, mine is Sun.-Tues.)
Washing all the dishes and such for the Motor home,
Won't be long and we'll be taken it out on the road again!
Also picked up branches, trimmed back some bushes,
And of course spent way to much time on the puter.
Now it's back to work for me.

I for one, will not have anyone staring at me in a casket!
That is just too gross! They never look 'good'!
So I plan on being cremated.
Craig and I have talked about this , and this is how it will happen.
If I go first, my ashes will be put into vials and placed
in the salon for anyone to take and do with me as they please!
But I can't decide if I want the clear, green, or blue!
I'll suggest they put me in their flower beds to nourish their plants. (me being a gardener)
Unless they just want to keep me lying around somewhere. Heck, They can flush me down the toilet if they want!
Craig will (hopefully) keep a vial of me in a special place for himself.
As for Craig, He wants his ashes to be thrown
off an overlook at Lake Powell, Utah, with this cool bridge!
He loves this place! This pic has his '88' Thunderbird in it on our first of 3 trips to this area. And he has a pic of each car he had at the time,
taken in the same spot, all framed on a wall.
And it'll be a road trip for me!
Hopefully this won't happen for a long time.. But then again, at some point, it will.
And if we both go at the same time, we'll both be cremated and our ashes mixed together. And our families can do what they want with them, since it won't really matter at that point.
Please, if you have a loved one, take the time to prepare for this.
In most states, the next of kin has control of the body!

I know you miss this stuff!
My last post showed my yard in summer. Here's a pic I took yesterday. Nope, no daffodils yet!We had some snow melt last week during a very brief warm spell. ( It got way up to 40! WOO-HOO!)
But of course, today is cold and It's been snowing off and on. And sun, what's that? But I have to keep telling myself, it's March, and it should slowly start to get better.
But I'm an impatient person.
So, today I'll clean the house, and play computer games. Craig will cook a beef roast in the crock pot with carrots, onions, and mushrooms. (I love the smell of food cooking all day)! And do paperwork.
And I'm spending way to much time at this computer. And slowly getting addicted to too many blogs.
Hope the weather breaks soon!

Where we are not yet, is Spring. Yes it's now March, but here in the Midwest, we still have about 5 more weeks before we'll see any daffodils and such. We still have snow cover and well most likely add to that before we're done. At least the daytime temps have been getting into the mid 30's. And the day's are getting noticeably longer.
Craig spent most of the weekend
doing our taxes,
while I scanned more of our
pictures so I can save them to disk.
I've also uploaded some more,
to my Webshots picture hosting site.
I've added an album of my yard .
I've also added an album of all my Hostas
I have about 30 different varieties.
And an album of my Daylilies
I have about 50 different Daylilies.
It felt good seeing pictures of summer.
And doing this helps get me
through this long winter.
And if any of my readers are
gardeners, you know we love
