  Plus, a bonus picture today.  One of my orchids *finally* bloomed.  It had a row of buds on the spike, but because of extreme temperature changes, they suffered bud blast and fell off.  This is the single blossom on that spike.  There are, fortunately, two more spikes that have developing buds on them.  Since… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 3/25/19

In honor of the Bake Off today, my musical selection is by none other than..... Cake! "Friend is a Four Letter Word" is a cut from 1996' "Fashion Nugget".  One of the things I love about Cake are their simple, but inventive lyrics, sung in McCrae's inimitable style.  This is a song about someone who… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 3/24/19

My selection today from it is “Days.” If anyone knows who Ray was singing about, I'd like to know who it is. per wikipedia: "Days"… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 3/22/19

I finally picked Mitski's new CD up at the library today and listened to it while coloring. The music is very alluring and makes you want to keep listening. Without hearing the lyrics very well, the mood is deep. My choice from this CD to present is “Washing Machine Heart.” Per wikipedia: Be the Cowboy… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 3/21/19

I was trying to think of an appropriate song for today. One that would speak to the mass shooting a long way from here, in NZ, but close for so many of the writers and readers on Word Press. We in the US have seen it become almost commonplace here. It sorrows me to see… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 3/19/19

I listened to Leonard Cohen: Live in London, or at least most of the first disc. There are some intense songs on it. Not knowing much about Cohen's music, I learned that it's dense; not a fluff or throwaway in the bunch. My selection from it is, "Ain't No Cure for Love," originally on I'm… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus — 3/16/19
