2013...I can't get started with you...


A couple of my Christmas gifts
Do any of you remember this song, I Can't Get Started With You? I remember the Sinatra version, and that's what I woke up with on my mind.


"I'm a glum one
It's explainable
I met someone (2013)
Unattainable
Life's a bore
The world is my oyster no more..."

Well, this morning I'm dedicating this tune to 2013.
I just can't seem to get started this year, on anything.

Thrift store finds
"I've been around the world in a plane
Designed the latest IBM brain
But lately
I'm so downhearted
"Cause I can't get started with you..."

 
I'm stuck somewhere between Christmas and Valentine's Day...
I'm still finding Christmas, here and there.
The projects I've started...
Well, I can't get started with you either.

 
Am I the only one in a blue funk?  Has the new year brought you clarity or confusion?  Are my expectations too high?  It is only the 14th, just 2 weeks in, right?  Well, I guess I'll just quit crabbin' and get to work!

How about that beautiful sunset...Not the greatest photo, but it was too wonderful not to photograph...from a moving car...with some signs and a McDonald's...it would have been spectacular from a junk yard!

Enjoy this beautiful day my friends.

I Can't Get Started With You

I know the feeling all too well. Hey, I SO WANT THAT BOTTLE DRYING RACK! I'm quite jealous, I've wanted one for ages but haven't found the justification for the splurge yet!

I think that alot of us are like that right now, I know I am. Maybe the swap wil get us moving. I keep seeing all kinds of ideas and can't come up with what I want to do. I may be doing 10 so I need to get started. I also think the weather has us al mixed up. I need more snow, hah.

Well you got me started, I enjoyed your post. I think the weather has "goofed we Midwesterners" up big time. We don't know if we are in fall, winter, spring or . . . .?? Guess we have to just plug along with a song or two in our heart . . . maybe that will give us the "kick start!".
