Aesthetically Appealing

Hello Everyone!

A New World to Play In” is a new Apple Arcade game using the song “Welcome to My World”.

In the commercial as each second changes to a character they are singing
“Welcome To My World”
Welcome To My World sung by Dean Martin in the 1967 as a studio albums.
Welcome To My World written and sung by Jim Reeves.

Welcome To My World was also sung by Eddy Arnold, Elvis Presley, Ricky Nelson.
If you want more information search Google, Bing, etc, and YouTube.com.
Don’t forget Wikipedia.org

For me this song is “aesthetically appealing!”
As the song plays I close my eyes and find myself and my husband dancing on air. As we dance we smile, share each others happiness, dream of what our future maybe.
Our eyes see the “aesthetically appealing” wonders in the world as we hop on different clouds.

Welcome to my world
won’t you come on in
miracles i guess
still happen now and then

Step into my heart
and leave your cares behind
welcome to my world
built with you in mind

knock and the door will open
seek and you will find
ask and you’ll be given
the key to this world of mine

I’ll be waiting here
with my arms unfurled
waiting just for you
welcome to my world

Have a great day! Hope

Kazoo

Hello Everyone!

Have you noticed the commercials where all of a sudden people start playing the KAZOO?

All of a sudden I’m moving my feet and ready to join them but I don’t have a KAZOO!!

So I wondered what the KAZOO was all about.

Well a KAZOO play actually hums instead of blows in to it. This oscillating air pressure of the hum makes the KAZOO’S membrane vibrate.
Sounds will vary in pitch and loudness as you hum away.
KAZOO players use specific syllables like doo, “too”, who, rrrr or brrr.

Celebrated on January 28th

In case you didn’t know – ta dah
Yes! Can you believe it? An electric KAZOO!

I’m totally KAZOOED out!

Have a great day! Hope

Home Crafts

Hello Everyone!

Start – Yarn, needles, pattern. Knitting has two (2) needles to work with, crocheting has one (1) needle. There are many different sizes of needles and yarns. It is unbelievable!

I still consider myself a beginner. I watch YouTube.com or search on the web at yarn companies websites to look for a pattern I have never done before. I have to tell you, I see one and really love how it looks, then look at the pattern. Then think to myself this one is not for me right now.

I still consider myself a beginner. I’m not a fast knitter. I just take one stitch at a time.
I call my knitting Hope’s Knitting Imperfections. I keep an eye out of stitches that are dropped, lost, and yes pull out a few rolls because it’s on row ten (10) and I’m at row twenty (20).

Now sometimes I get carried away and end up with a piece like this one.
This is my mystery piece.

When I finish my knits, I lightly wash and dry.
Then put in plastic bag that seals on the top.

Add a label.

Insert Hope’s Knitting Imperfections sheet.

Have a great day! Hope

Hope: “e”, “f”, “i”, “n”, “i” “e”. Oh my! Can I have a sip of water?

Mabel: Really, Hope. Okay here’s your sip of water.
Hope: Ready! “n”, “d”, “u”, “m”. Whew!!!!
Mabel: Now that you spelled the word, please pronounce and define the word.
Hope: Really? I spelled it correctly, why do I have to say it, plus give a definition?
Definiendum – in my own words; all of a sudden you decide to create a word. Your next step would be to define your fabulous new word.
I hope I got it straight!!!!

The Bridge

Hello Everyone!

How many bridges have you crossed?
There are many types of bridges, but don’t forget the bridges of life.

Do you remember the song by Simon & Garfunkel?

Bridge Over Troubled Water
When you’re weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes
I will dry them all
I’m on your side
Oh when times get rough
And friends just can’t be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
For the rest of the song go to YouTube.com

Some days I feel I’m walking to the “bridge over troubled water”.
Memories come alive!
Some tears are sad when I start walking towards the bridge of life, and by the time my walk ends my tears of sad are now tears with a smile.
Why you ask?
The bridge brought back memories of when my soul mate and me were walking over the bridge holding hands.

Have a great day! Hope

Did You Know?

Hi Everyone!

Did you know Thursday 1/23/2020 is National Handwriting Day?
It sure is.

Did you know Microsoft released “comic sans” font in 1994?

Did you know there are 200,000+ not more than 260,000, this includes individual fonts not families.

Family fonts – hmm?
Times New Roman Bold and Times New Roman Italic are not the same font, but they are in the same family.
Hmm?
Now according to https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_font_font-family.asp
You have family-name = times, courier, aerial, etc.
You have generic-family = serif, sans-serif, cursive, fantasy, monospace, etc.

All I can say is WOW!
Do I have a favorite font? It all depends on what I’m creating, blog, cards, letters, emails, etc.

Have a great day! Hope
