A dream about school and life events that I’m only now connecting after becoming fully awake explain what I Woke Up Singing today. And what song would that be?
I’m a musical gal, from my wee days taking piano and drum lessons, to my current stint in a community choir. Listening to music is what going to church is for some, so I celebrate with Sunday Song, a new series here at Daisy Smiley Face. Each week, I post a song that’s been my earworm for the week or something that reflects what’s happening in my world. Today: She Sings.
The host of the Just Jot It January challenge asked for daily word prompt suggestions. I was scrolling through Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day website at the time and memento jumped out at me. I suggested that and it was chosen for the inspiration for today’s post!
One might think that memento would urge me to write about an object obtained in my travels or from someone I care/d about, but nay. The first thing that popped into my head was a movie, and that’s making me revisit my infrequent Movie Monday series. YAY!
This is my second post in this year’s Advent Calendar blog series at Solveig’s blog. I intended to write more, but alas, I’ve been sick for the past few days. Better this weekend than next, with the holiday and all.
Check my entry today then read the posts by others from around the world. This series is really quite lovely and a great way to connect with other bloggers. Plus! You have to click the link to see the cute photo I included with my post.
These little critters greeted me on a Christmas tree at a senior living facility my choir sang at. It was the one member’s mom’s holiday party, and we were the entertainment. When I joined the choir, I thought it would be fun, but when I found out they perform for seniors as part of their […]
Dale at A Dalectable Life is sharing bloggers each day of the Advent Calendar of her creation. Today, she added me and I couldn’t be more appreciative and grateful. What a wonderful little world this blogosphere is….
In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort. Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause […]
People! For the 4th year in a row, I’ve participated in Solveig’s Advent Calendar series! It’s fun to read posts all month long from people around the world! Check out my first post of the month today (link below) — with another later in the month from me, too — and consider participating. It’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and share some holiday cheer!
Chocolate Countdown By Tara Paray
As this Advent Calendar blog series gets underway (again! — yay!) and Advent for Christians starts tomorrow, I’m beginning my countdown today with a very special calendar. I’ve had Advent calendars made of paper with little date windows you open. I’ve also had the kind that hang on the wall, […]
I’m a fan of smiling. I mean, part of my blog name is SMILEY. So it’s, like, almost required that I participate in a blog feature called Weekly Smile. What was I smiling about this week?
I sing, alone, every single day. Music is truly the background of my life. When I’m not singing, I’m speaking in song lyrics (or movie quotes). So why not sing with a group?

It’s Thursday! It’s time to share some doors! What did I capture this week? Let’s find out.
As the great musical poet Kiki Dee once said, “I’ve got the music in me.” Seriously, music is part of my daily life, so I participate in Song Lyric Sunday. This week’s theme is found.
