So far, I’ve been enjoying my summer vacation. My grandkids are spending their days capering around the house. They’re enjoying their time together. Before the girls have to go back to their home in Arizona they want me to teach them how to dance. They have been begging since they arrived and to my surprise they want to learn Latino dances as Salsa and Merengue. I’m a pretty good dancer however, it has been too long since I shake this body.
My girls tell me I still have the moves. They are such a sweetheart. We have been dancing all weekend if I can call it dancing. Also, I’m taking advantage and its helping me losing weight. My house is full of laughter and I’m loving every minute.

Enjoy the message and the beautiful voice of Carrie Underwood. It’s one of the many songs I listen when I’m down.

Growing up in a Puerto Rican home doing our chores, especially on a Saturday was fun. Yes, I know I said fun. Of course, it depends if our friends were outside waiting for us. My mother would put the stereo on a high volume so we can sing during our chores. In our neighborhood, you can hear all different types of music.
We would wake up no later than 8am watch the morning cartoons and then my mother would turn on the stereo. It was cleaning time. Listening to the music would make the cleaning go faster and more enjoyable.
I raise my children in the same way and they didn’t complain at all. By the way they still do their cleaning with the sound of their favorite music. Maybe not as loud as mine. When I’m in my car as soon as I hear a favorite song, the volume goes up. I loved singing in my car and for that reason my grandkids love being with me. This morning I was cleaning my bathroom and my grandson says where was the music. I turn on my CD player and immediately he took the broom as a microphone. The girls follow him, too.
Enjoy your day at the sound of music!

Who doesn’t love this song? “Imagine all the people living life in peace”. This is the song of a dreamer and a believer that we all can change if we wanted it. We can save this world of madness and we can make a difference for the future of our children. In a perfect and an imaginary world, the song fits their purpose.
John Lennon wrote this song with an idea of having a peaceful world. I’ve read the opinions of some people and how they interpret the song. I’ll respect their opinion; however, the message is perfect no matter your race, gender, political views, or religion. I consider a beauty, peaceful, and touching.
The saddest thing is that we can only Imagine. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”.

I love to listen to music and I wish I’ve taken classes in High School. I don’t listen to denigrating songs or the use of bad language in the lyrics. I listen from Frank Sinatra to Justin Timberlake and the 70’s are my favorites.
This is a few of my favorites and this isn’t counting my Latin and Gospel songs:
Bryan Adams- I do it for you
Foreigner- I want to know what love is
Beatles- Let it be, Michelle, Help, everything from them
Michael Jackson- You are not alone
Michael Buble- It’s a beautiful day
Phillip Phillips- Home
Carrie Underwood- Jesus take the wheel

When I was a teenager, I took a few guitar lessons. I have to say I did learn a few notes and then my nails were a problem. I love long nails and I didn’t want to cut them. I made a choice to keep my nails and my guitar lessons vanish into the air. The vanity of having cute and colorful fingernails won the battle.
My husband who plays the guitar beautifully tried to teach me. I learn two songs and again, my nails won.
Now at 55 when I heard my husband playing the guitar I wish I’ve continue my lesson. I forgot the two songs I’ve learned and my fingers hurt a lot; so bye to that dream.
