Mellow afternoon

I bought a John Coltrane CD on Saturday.

I had heard “In a Sentimental Mood” in a movie a few years ago and finally got around to looking it up and making a purchase. The Coltrane album I have has the version recorded with Duke Ellington (apparently the best-known version) and made for perfect background music as I laid on the couch and thumbed through a glossy foodie mag. Sigh… There is nothing better than doing that kind of thing on a weekend afternoon, especially when the weather is dreary. Pure bliss!

Lush melodies make
For a sentimental mood
As the jazz plays on…

I love my Dad

Dad sent me a song /

Lyrics always make me cry /

Father daughter bond

Wind chimes

Airing out the house /

Wind chimes tinkle with
the breeze /

Fascinated cat

Morning ritual

Music to sing by

Crisp lyrics in the shower

Grooving amidst suds

The dream zone

Imagination

Cooking, dancing, fun-filled dreams

Tempting not to wake
