Finally back!

Crikey! (Thank you for that luvely word Steve Irwin! Love how it just snaps off the tongue)
What a month it has been.

Amidst moving to a new apartment and waiting for what has seemed an eternity to get back online (I had withdrawal-honestly!)
I missed out on the quarterly bloggy carnival:-(
Oh well, I hope everyone else got in lots of entries along with discovering cool new blogs to read.

And it is just not the same trying to keep up with things on someone else's
Even using my laptop while tapping onto a hot spot is just not as comfortable as happily surfing in my own little space.
Kinda like trying to read the paper at a crowded bus stop with others peeking over your shoulder.

So farewell to January.
Now if only saying goodbye to Winter could be so easy.

Remembering Elvis....

(words & music by doc pomus and mort shuman)

Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
So get those stakes up higher
There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
cause even if there were forty more
I would'nt sleep a minute away
Oh, there's black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on every deal
All you needs a strong heart and a nerve of steel
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with your neon flashin'
And your one armbandits crashin'
All those hopes down the drain
Viva Las Vegas turnin day into nighttime
Turnin night into daytime
If you see it once
You'll never be the same again

I'm gonna keep on the run
I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well
I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
I'm gonna give it everything I've got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shoot a seven with every shot
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas,
Viva, Viva Las Vegas

Happy Birthday Darlin'

Happy New Year!

Yikes! I haven't updated in ages.
With the holidays and moving,
things have been so hectic.
Time to take a breather and do some catching up.

Hope 2009 is going to be a blessed year for everyone.
Isn't Bloggy Carnival sometime this month?
I'm really looking forward to that.

I'm not making any New Year's resolutions...
I never do...I'm just going to keep reminding myself that every day
is a new beginning and take it from there.
