I Danced

I danced today.

I had the day off work today. My plan was to continue painting - the entry way and/or the living room, after doing my bedroom last weekend. But I let myself sleep in, and it was glorious. That first cup of coffee was wonderful, and when I peeked out the door to the back patio, the white cat (not mine, but one of many that seem to live in my yard) was curled up on the glider, enjoying the morning before the heat became unbearable. It was just too perfect a morning for anything that resembled work.

A couple of weeks ago, in my meandering through the blogosphere, I found a blog called A Fanciful Twist. Quite magical and a little ethereal, almost like a fairytale. This particular post had me at the "lace and paper flowers." And I instantly wanted to put on a twirly skirt and dance.

Since that night, I've had it on the mental list in the back of mind to look through my old CD's for one in particular. But, as it usually plays out, there was always something more important to do. Until today. And I found it - "Gypsy" by Fleetwood Mac. And so I danced. In my pajamas. And the day was good.

I hope you dance today!


  1. I danced yesterday, too! was good! I'm very glad you used your day on you. Just you. Yay!

  2. LOVE this post, Janet...Dancing in pajamas--YES!! And to a great song, I've always liked Fleetwood Mac--and "Gypsy" is a great one. Isn't A Fanciful Twist a fantastic blog--I'm always inspired after being there. But now your post has me wanting to dance again too! ;o) Happy Weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

  3. love dancing! Used to dance more then I do now... sigh.

    glad to be back and hoping to get back on track and catch up with all as school gets started and schedules return

  4. Thanks for this fun post. I dance and sing and do all sorts of fanciful twists my own self as I am sure you do too, Janet, judging from this charming expose. I love that blog too; and that post as well as her announcements about the Halloween Party seem extra special.

    It seems like autumn here this week and weekend... fog and rain, silvery skies and cool weather. After 100 degrees, yeah, we are singing in the rain in Georgia!

    Take care,
