One of my favourite musicals

Singing in the Rain

It is not that easy as we sing harmonies

but it is great fun.

‘Let the stormy clouds chase everyone from the place

Come on with the rain, I’ve a smile on my face…..’

and there it was:

enjoy 6 minutes of the roaring 20’s.

Rainbow – scones – music

Standard

“Around us, life bursts with miracles–a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”
― Thích Nhất Hạnh

Nancy from Strawberryindigo posted this this morning on Facebook and I love it so I like to share it with you all.

I saw some buds on a tree outside and had already a little Spring feeling.

and it is weekend hurray…..

Sunshine when I got up so I decided to do the shopping,

Reached the shop, it was pouring with rain, and terribly windy and cold

Got the shopping in,

totally dark outside now,

so I decide to dance to some music. Made me warm and happy. Music is magic!

Sunshine back out,

do some washing, have a cappuccino,

and the next downpour is here.

Exercise on my exercise bicycle and see the beautiful rainbow.

Sun back out….. for how long…… ???

I say thank you for the rain, thank you for the sunshine, thank you for the music, thank you for the rainbow.

Thank you for all the miracles I have around me.

“Each morning when you open your eyes, think only three things: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you”

I bought some scones , jam and double cream for a cream tea later….

why don’t you join me?

Enjoy and relax with me!

with an old song I always loved….The Riddle, different version….

Ute – Land of the Sun

Standard

The name Ute was given to me by my mum, she had a doll called Ute and loved this name.

The meaning: Ute has its origins in the Germanic language and it is used largely in German. It is derived from the word ‘uod’ which means “wealth, fortune”. The male version of this name is Otto, which is one of my grandad’s name. Also it comes up as  a Japanese name, japanese origin meaning “song”

So I am not really sure which one to choose….. but…

☼☼☼

Through Google, RoSy and another blog from Sharla I found more about  Ute which I found rather interesting:

Utah was Mexican territory when the first pionees arrived in 1847. It became the 45th state admitted to the union on January 4, 1896. The name Utah is derived from the name of the Ute Tribe. The University of Utah has adopted the Ute as its mascot. The word Ute means “Land of the sun” in their language. Ute possibly derived from the western Apache word “Yudah” meaning “high up”. This had led to the misconception that Ute means people high up or mountain people.

I do love the meaning “Land of the sun” and I shall stick to that one now. My mum told me that I was always a sunshine in her life and always a cheerful and happy child. There we have it… Proof!

So I shall keep the sunshine going,

keep dancing,

keep smiling,

and sending the sunshine from my heart out to everyone else!

Have a beautiful, bright day from the Land of the Sun!
