What a wonderful world...oh yeah..

I'm sitting here with the sun on my shoulder, keeping me company, and listening to James Taylor singing "You've got a Friend". It's music from an amazing blog - Donna, from Texas, commented on my Blog, so I went over to hers for a visit. If you want some good old American Apple Pie and a lovely warm feeling, I suggest you do the same. She has created a complete world, with words, pictures and music, called Made in Heaven. It really is a step into another life, and one which I'd love to visit. I'll put a new link in my list (get me!) so you can visit if you like.

James Taylor took me back thirty years to Saturday mornings in Little Venice. I had a lovely flat there, with floor-to-ceiling sash windows which opened onto wrought iron stairs. These led down to a glorious three-acre garden called the Triangle Garden. On sunny Saturday mornings I would open up the sash windows and sit on the carpet in the sunshine, drinking coffee and listening to James Taylor, The Carpenters, Carol King etc. It was a great time - sometimes lonely, but still great. Thanks for the memory, Donna.

All lovely and cheerful Margot, but 1. you could have embedded a link into your post, and 2, I assume you must have had a good reason for withdrawing your comment from my site yesterday, but I only had three to start with :-(

Get back across here and replace it with one more to your liking, now! ;-)

Margot, Good Morning! What a pleasent surprise to see your post today! Glad it made you happy..I also am a huge fan of Carol King!! I'll find some soothing songs by her to put on my playlist. If the music is "jarring", my readers tend to RUN! LOLOL And thanks for wanting to add me to your list! I'm doing the same for you! Stay happy and warm today..hughug

Hi there - lovely post. Have you heard James T singing "Getting to know you"? It was on a kids album many years ago to benefit AIDS I believe. Absolutely sublime.

James Taylor was the first album I ever bought! Thanks for your comments - think I have sorted the double entry problem...still no idea about uploading pictures - my son obviously did the image for me. Will keep trying....Lulu x
