What a difference a day makes

This song was recorded by many people but the one I remember was but Ella Fitzgerald.
As I sat reading blogs this morning, those words kept drifting across my mind.

As I announced in my last post, JB and I were changing up our blogging routine. In our first year we blogged alternate days, and now needed a fresh approach.

Those days seem to come quicker and quicker and we were losing our sense of fun under obligation.

So now we each have chosen 2 days in the week on which we will post. Our first Friday of the month -FIVE WORD FRIDAY – will remain as it is now, since Judith always experiences that first Friday one day before me.

Oh, back, to the difference. The feeling of freedom is amazing. Now I have five days a week to do what I most enjoy, and that is reading your blogs.

I did not realize how stressful I found it all. But oh my this feels wonderful.

f course this is also voting day for the mid-terms in the US so the song also applies to that. Oh dear.

What a diff'rence a day made
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain
My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine
Lord what a diff'rence a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss
It's heaven when you, find romance on your menu
What a diff'rence a day made
And the difference is you

Wishing you well from North of 43!

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. and longitude 80 W, The other almost equidistant south latitude and longitude 174 E. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.
