Japanese Sandman


What?  She’s gone ’round the bend for sure this time.  !!! ;->

Every Sunday we have a really special brunch.  It usually looks very similar to what you see above, so I don’t often write about it, but today we enjoyed it so much more than usual that I want to talk about it some.

First . . . ??Japanese Sandman???  What does that have to do with anything?  Not a lot, actually, but it is the little things like this that bring us such great happiness.

We listen to Pandora when we have meals, and have a shuffle of music from our favorite eras – the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s.  We were listening away today, while enjoying the above repast, when Benny Goodman and His Orchestra started belting out “Japanese Sandman”.  Usually we hear it by Paul Whiteman, and were delighted to hear a new version.  This is one of DH’s favorite songs, and he was totally delighted to hear a new version of it.

We reflected on the happiness that we feel with our lives – the wonderful food, companionship, and contentment that we are blessed with – and wished this same happiness for all of our friends.

      We try to keep our stress levels low. Sitting quietly and enjoying each other’s company works wonders in this regard. The parade of animals is also a factor. There were two roadrunners out there this morning, busily attending to business, along with the usual Gambel’s and Scaled Quail coming for their usual morning drink, a coyote trotting by to a predetermined destination, and a cottontail that came hopping in to get under our workshop for an early-morning snooze! ;->
