I like to be random.
It's a lot of fun.
So here is a post about random me.

When I listen to certain songs that I haven't heard in years, but I loved as a naΓ―ve teenager.  NaΓ―ve.

The last couple of mornings when I've just woken up and I'm lying there in bed, my brain thinks dreamily of the nice balmy March morning and how it will be the perfect day for working in my gardens and playing on the lawn with my dog........then I come upstairs.

View from the back window.

View from the front window.

But on a happier note, can I just say....
Okay, I haven't actually seen the movie, but I've been listening to the songs (and watching the scenes that the songs are part of) and OH MY GOLDFISH it's amazing!!!  I can listen to the music for hours.  And especially these three songs.
Grrrrrrrrr.  It's refusing to let me put videos on here.  😠
Anyway, the three songs below.
This is Me
Rewrite the Stars
From Now On

Oh and this song.  I love it a LOT.  I've been listening to it like everyday for the last couple of weeks.
Eternal Love
I absolutely love the kdrama that it's from and I really should watch it again, but my computer hates the drama sites.  😞

A pet peeve: when people turn off the shower, but leave the shower head engaged.  It shoots me in the face.

Okay, so for a few years now, I've had the idea of (someday) writing fairytale and Jane Austen retellings that are set in an Old West town (think Louis L'Amour).  Just the other day, I had the thought that Mrs. Gardiner from Pride & Prejudice would make the perfect Fairy Godmother for Cinderella.  Then I thought, what about this:
Cinderella is Mr. Bingley's young step-sister 
(Caroline and Louisa would make the PERFECT wicked step-sisters)
Colonel Fitzwilliam is Cinderella's 'Prince'
Snow White is Lady Catherine de Bourgh's step-daughter  

What do you all think?

And some random cool pictures I found on Pixabay.

And that 'tis all for this day.
May the sun shine upon you and the wind blow warm upon your face.
See you later, alligators!


  1. Oh I do LOVE random posts like this! And those pictures are lovely!!! I also totally agree on the shower head pet peeve... It's not a pleasant feeling to get shot in the face >_<

    In a while, crocodile! :D

  2. Oh goodness, I've been shot in the face before with the showerhead. It's especially annoying when it's freezing cold.

    And your story idea sounds awesome! (even though I haven't read Pride and Prejudice just yet, I can still see it being awesome.)

    Feel ya on the snow thing. *facepalm*

    1. YES!! I've been known to loudly mutter the unpleasant things I'll do to the person who left it engaged.



  3. I love this post ;p You were a naive teenager???? When????? lo ;p

    I still need to see The Greatest Showman,too :D

    1. I knew you would! It's a very you post. And yes, I was very naive teenager in certain ways. Observant, but naive.

      I love these songs!

  4. I dearly love the P&P/Fairy tale mashup idea! I think that would be a fun book to read!


  5. Random posts are my jam! XD

    I really need to watch The Greatest Showman, don't I?

    The pictures are awesome!

    1. XD

      YES!! They absolutely are. And so are the costumes!

  6. Aw, love this!

    Western retellings -- yaaaasss. And aw, Col. Fitzwilliam. I always love Fitzwilliam in the '95 movie, so I'd love to see something developing his character. :)


    1. XD

      Yes, Col. Fitzwilliam is supercool. I've seen and read sequels where they hook up the Col. and Georgiana. Nope. Not happening here!

      :) Have you seen it yet?

  7. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!! If you write that, I will read it and love it!!!! I would love it to pieces!!!! Please write it!

    Opps... I'm usually that person. Well, I used to be, but F and M yelled at me enough that I learned my lesson.
