    • Yes, it’s so fun when you feel giddy about something!! I know, we need to let ourselves get more excited about the smallest things, just like kids do. Good evening PJ! Thank you my day was magical, thank you. I hope your day was filled with wonder too!! ((HUGS!!)) xoxo 🙂

    • Yes, you are right about that…having childlike excitement and wonder! I’m so glad your day was magical! I went and bought Sugar a collar today so she could show off her new rabies tag. I bought her a royal blue collar that has “diamonds” all around it. It’s so pretty! She seems to like it too. Haha! I have had a wonderful day!!

    • Ooooh I like it!!! Ask Sugar if she’d be willing to share that with me, afterall diamonds are a girl’s best friend!! hehe Plus sapphire is my birthstone, so royal blue is close enough. Lol. So happy that your day was wonderful too!

    • Sugar will go into the bathroom and grab the end of the toilet paper roll and take off running! LOL! She and I go around and around on that! She can climb up the back of my sofa (and it is tall) and climb onto the bar that is connected to my kitchen. So whenever I am washing dishes, she is up there watching me. LOL! Then she flies off the counter onto the floor!! (seriously, she flys!!) The bar she gets on doesn’t hold any sort of food. It’s more of a knick Knack bar. If it held food I would throw a fit. I think she is 1/3 dog, 1/3 cat, and 1/3 flying squirrel.

    • Thanks Miri…yes that feeling of it’s about to brim over or you just can’t contain yourself and you want to squeal!! Like a piglet. hehe
      So happy to hear of your lovely day and your walk with your sister. How nice! Well my morning was filled with problems but the afternoon was better and after work was terrific! I stopped at the music store and picked out a guitar…put it hold so I could think about it overnight and then I’ll go back tomorrow and either buy it or not…but I really love it so I’m gonna buy it. It’s a Takamine, never heard of them before but I tried several and liked this one the best! I feeling that childlike excitement again!! I am enjoying the expansion. Have a marvelous Tuesday my sweet lady! Big hugs xo

    • Oh I’m so happy for you Deb. Yes of course think about it but hopefully your instinct is telling you to buy it and make beautiful music. Don’t you just love that brimming over feeling of childlike excitement. Yay, go for it, embrace it, that’s so awesome.
      My Tuesday’s been good so far. I’ve just picked up my son from his exam so my quiet time is over. Feeling more rested and at peace today which is good. Big hugs and kisses to you xo

    • My instinct is telling me to buy it, I wanted to do a little research on it but it’s really pretty and sounds lovely. My first lesson will be next Monday night. I’m stopping by tonight to purchase it. What kind do you have? Did you do much research as to what to buy or just went with what you liked? Glad to hear you are feeling more at peace today and have had a more restful day. I got your email, sounds so pretty, I love it. Wishing you a wonderful night’s sleep. Time for me to get ready for work. Big hugs xo 💗

    • Follow your instinct. If you love it and if it’s meant to be yours you’ll feel it. My first guitar, believe it or not, was bought for me when I was 14 and I used it until about five years ago. The most beautiful sounding Spanish guitar. Doug actually bought me another one called an Aria, with a wood grain and it also has a lovely sound. So I haven’t actually bought one myself. I’ve loved both my guitars. 💕
      Ooh, a lesson already, how wonderful. I took classical lessons for about a year and loved it. I hope you do too.
      I hope you have a good day at work Deb. Have fun buying your guitar. Talk soon. Hugs 💜 xo

    • I bought it and booked my lesson…so I’m very excited!! This one is an acoustic/electric guitar. The “electric’ part is on board the guitar and it has a battery slot with a display window so that you can tune it, the display tells you the perfect pitch. The electric part is also apart of that mechanism, you plug the guitar into an acoustical amp and then the settings for treble etc are on the guitar. It’s very cool. But it’s so pretty that’s what I loved about it and the sound is a low mellow full sound. I was wondering what you had and if you had any preferences. Seems you like both of them just fine.
      I hope you had a wonderful night’s sleep and are ready to enjoy a lovely Wednesday!! Talk soon and big hugs to you my sweet! xo

    • Congratulations! 😊 How awesome, it sounds just perfect . I didn’t mention that the acoustic guitar I have now is also electric and plugs into an AMP but I must admit I haven’t plugged it in for awhile. I enjoy playing just with the acoustic mellow sound at home. Does your guitar have steel or nylon strings? Oh I think you’re going to love it Deb. When’s your first lesson?
      My Wednesday is looking bright here. The sun is shining and beckoning me outside but first I have chores inside. Anyway, have a lovely evening there Deb and once again a big congrats my musical friend. Big hugs xo

    • The strings are steel. I’m going to post it as my Grateful Post tomorrow so you’ll see a pic of it. Speaking of do you use a pick or your fingers or both? My first lesson is Monday night but YouTube has lessons too and I have a feeling I’ll be watching that over the weekend and get a head start!! It occurred to me today, hey I can learn how to play Taylor Swift’s songs and got real excited about that thought!!
      Put some music it to do your chores to it will make them go by faster so you can go outside and enjoy the sun!! Oh I can’t wait til I know how to play and then we can collaborate even more!! Well enjoy your bright and sunny day my lovely lady!! Thank you and acoustical hugs to you xo

    • Awesome. I’ll look out for your Grateful Post and a picture of your new ‘best friend’, haha, so exciting.
      I use my fingers. I used to use a pick and it IS good for heavy duty strumming but I find that using my fingers gives me more flexibility and, to be quite honest, it feels more raw and enjoyable using my fingers. But everyone’s different. You’ll try new things and work out what works and what you love best . Hey yes, you can learn Taylor Swift’s songs, what fun. YouTube is great for that.
      Well I’ve just hung my clothes out and now I’m going to head out into the garden to pick some grass and special leaves for my Guinea pigs!
      Enjoy the rest of your night Deb. Big strumming musical hugs xo 🎸 💖

    • I just sent you a pic…Sounds like I have some exploring to do to see what I like, that’s all part of the journey now isn’t it!!
      Oh clothes hung out in the fresh air mmmm! Well get your Guinea pigs some treats and enjoy your time out in nature and the sunshine. I’m off to bed soon. Have a wonderful rest of your day too my dearest sweet friend. Big strumming hugs back. xo
