I've wanted to write a stream of consciousness list/ post sort of deal for a while now. That's how my brain seems to be bubbling this morning. So, why not try it?
I warn you, this post is bound to be odd - and probably not very well written. How could it be if it's unedited? I can feel my mind hopping around like a bumble bee drunk on pollen. Flit - here it is to rest a while. Flutter - there it goes to peek at the flowers over there. Flit - and we're off again. If you're still with me, hang on this is bound to be an odd ride. I promise to post it unedited. Here goes.
First thing on my mind is wondering if you like my FavIcon. I really, really do want your honest opinion. A FavIcon is the little deal that pops up in the corner of your window tab when you open my blog. It's the red lip print that looks a little like a heart. That is my lip print and I like the idea. I'm just not sure about how it actually works. Did you notice it? What was your first impression of it? What do you think it looks like? Do you like it? Should I keep looking for another FavIcon?
Finally, finally I am taking Sloane to see The Frog Princess. Today. I am thrilled that Disney seems to be getting back to their fairytale roots. But, not too hopeful that it will be wonderful. I haven't heard one person say anything about this movie. Not one. I am hoping it's magical and lovely and full of great music and sigh inducing. I'm hoping... but not necessarily expecting it. Still, it will be a great time for Sloane. She so rarely gets to see a movie on the big screen. There are hardly any G movies being made anymore, you know?
My favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast. Second is Mulan - at least until I think about Cars. My other favorite is Sleeping Beauty, but that may be because an old boyfriend once woke me up by calling me, "Sleeping Beauty."
Well, I do really, really like the dancing/falling in love scene. That scene reminds me of the dancing/falling in love scene in Moulin Rouge. Do you know the scene I mean? It's one of my all-time favorite movie scenes because it looks exactly like what falling in love feels like.
Another great falling in love scene is this one from Strictly Ballroom. sigh.
Speaking of love - I do SO love Valentine's Day. Love, love, love it! I'm wondering if you have any wonderful and unique plans for Sunday?
Our most unique thing is that Jeffrey and I celebrate Valentine's Day for Sloane on the 14th and celebrate our own on the 15th. We celebrated the first Valentine's we ever shared on the 15th. Now, twenty years later, we're still celebrating on the 15th. Twenty years. Oh my. How simply, marvelously wonderful. When I was a teenager I wondered if it was boring to wake up to the same face for twenty years. As an adult, I simply pray for at least fifty more years to wake up to the same precious face.
I find myself humming love songs all the time lately.
I love the way my pictures turned out from yesterday. I'm going to use one on this post. For their birthdays, I always sing to my students, give them a great book, and a big smoochy red-lipsticked kiss. They wear it all day and love it. Every Valentine's Day I kiss each student, hug them, and tell them how much I love them. It's one of my favorite times of the year. I think they love it too. Just look at the faces in the picture.
Have you ever put Recess Peanut Butter Cup minis in your chocolate ice cream? YUM!!
I wonder how old Sloane will be before she stops calling me to come help her when she showers?
Speaking of Sloane, she's out of the shower and ready for me to help her with her next blog post.
Gotta run. Happy Friday, friends.
