Ready For A Valentine’s Day Concert?

Good.

I’ve recently become addicted to Korean and Taiwanese Movies and Dramas thanks to my fiendish daughter, Tracey, and our friend Leia. So I thought I would put up a couple of my favorite love songs from a couple of the more romantic of the movies they’ve forced talked me into watching. And yes they have English subtitles but it’s worth it.

These are also songs I listen to while writing. The music lovely and it’s actually very soothing. Because I’m not trying to listen to the lyrics since I can’t understand a word they’re saying it’s not distracting (although I’ve listened so much I’m getting a clue, I’ll be understanding Korean if not speaking it before too long). Makes sense to me.

Mary Stayed Out All Night:

In case your confused by the Merry Christmas reference, the girl’s name in the video is Mae Ri. Moo Kyul’s nickname for her is Maeri Christmas.

Boys Over Flowers. The song is so beautiful and sad. You gotta watch the drama (25 episodes) to understand why. Let’s just say I have a love/hate relationship with it. Lol.

You’re Beautiful:

City Hunter:

Secret Garden. I can’t say enough about this one. You just have to watch it.  The drama is good but the payoff comes in the last three episodes (there’s twenty in all). Episode seventeen made me cry like a baby. That man really loves that woman. The song is beautiful.

And Just For Fun A Collection of Kisses From Jang Keun Suk:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Peace.

Fat Tuesday: I Think I Can

Just chugging a long in another good week. I’ve stayed off sugary foods for about twenty days now. Friday and Saturday were difficult days with cravings hitting at odd times; for instance a craving hit in a used book store. Looking at old, stinky stacks of books was fun but the aisles were narrow and hot. I started feeling a bit nauseous and decided to just go with what I had in hand.

Remember our conversation a couple of weeks ago? Yeah, they had fudge and other goodies stacked around the registers. That fudge knew my name. Holly smacked me in the arm to get my attention off the candy. I walked away with a couple of books (old gothics by Clarissa Ross), a couple of cds and a small bag of pretzels. I thought the pretzels were a good compromise.

On Saturday Holly, Faith and I went to Hershey Gardens. After a lot of walking in unaccustomed heat, the long and short of it is I ended up in a wheelchair to get back to the car. I guess my body just needed to refuel so the craving hit hard but I was able to ignore it and drink lemonade and lots of water when we got to Bob Evans. I ordered yummy roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, carrots, and green  beans. I only ate half of it, saving the rest for lunch the next day.

This week’s goals are to eat more fruits and veggies. I got a good start this last week but I need to eat more. Walking is another goal, but not all in one day; walks in a shorter distance should be what I’m doing.

This week’s reason to stay off the sugar and lose weight: there’s no sense in being old, fat and bald. I can’t do anything about the first item but the other two I’m working on. I notice the less sugar I eat, the less hair I have in my brush.

Here’s some music to enjoy:

Peace.

Just Call Me Nonna

If you haven’t seen the photos of Faith I put up on Friday and you want to then please click here.

So we had the baby shower March 31. I will share a few photos from the shower on Friday because I think they’re worth sharing. We had a great time; John and Holly got a lot of gifts they were thrilled with for Faith.

After the shower it was time to recover. Holly and John went to scout out some job offers leaving Rex with me. The plan being that Paul and I would take Rex to Maryland in about two weeks, stay a couple of days to help Holly get the nursery ready then come home. After about a week I would go back to stay with them until Faith was born and a bit afterwards to help out.

The best laid plans never happen.

Freaky on Fridays: Freaking Over James Rollins

 

On Tuesday, June 21st 2011 James Rollins is releasing his seventh book in the Sigma series. A description from Amazon:

From New York Times bestselling author James Rollins comes a novel of boundless imagination and meticulous research, a book that dares to answer a frightening question at the heart of America: Could the founding of the United States be based on a fundamental lie? The shocking truth lies hidden within the ruins of an impossibility, a lost colony of the Americas vanished in time and cursed into oblivion. A place known only as The Devil Colony

Deep in the Rocky Mountains, a gruesome discovery—hundreds of mummified bodies—stirs international attention and fervent controversy. Despite doubts about the bodies’ origins, the local Native American Heritage Commission lays claim to the prehistoric remains, along with the strange artifacts found in the same cavern: gold plates inscribed with an unfathomable script.

 During a riot at the dig site, an anthropologist dies horribly, burned to ashes in a fiery explosion in plain view of television cameras. All evidence points to a radical group of Native Americans, including one agitator, a teenage firebrand who escapes with a vital clue to the murder and calls on the one person who might help—her uncle, Painter Crowe, Director of Sigma Force.

 To protect his niece and uncover the truth, Painter will ignite a war among the nation’s most powerful intelligence agencies. Yet an even greater threat looms as events in the Rocky Mountains have set in motion a frightening chain reaction, a geological meltdown that threatens the entire western half of the U.S.

 From the volcanic peaks of Iceland to the blistering deserts of the American Southwest, from the gold vaults of Fort Knox to the bubbling geysers of Yellowstone, Painter Crowe joins forces with Commander Gray Pierce to penetrate the shadowy heart of a dark cabal, one that has been manipulating American history since the founding of the thirteen colonies. 

But can Painter discover the truth—one that could topple governments—before it destroys all he holds dear?
