If life throws you a lemon - make lemonade

The quote above is by Joan Collins.

Anyhow, I am feeling sick and what better way to be upbeat than spinning some cheery songs? Hope your computer can play out the playlist that's currently on this blog.

I am hooked on this song "Lemonade" by Chris Rice. (Thanks for the intro on your blog Karen!)

"Lemonade" Lyrics:
So go ahead and ask her
For happy ever after
‘Cause nobody knows what’s coming
So why not take a chance on loving
Come on, pour the glass and tempt me
Either half-full or half-empty
‘Cause if it all comes down to flavor
The glass is tipping in my favor

Life gave me lemonade
and I can’t imagine why
Born on a sunny day, beneath a tangerine sky
I live life without pretending
I’m a sucker for happy endings
Thanks for the lemonade
Thanks for the lemonade

Now take your time to answer me
For the beauty of romancing
Is to calm your trembling hand with mine
While begging love to fill your eyes
I can hardly breathe while waiting
To find out what your heart is saying
And as we’re swirling in this flavor
The world is tilting in our favor

I’ve got it made
Rest in the shade
And hold my love
While God above
Stirs with a spoon
We share the moon
Smile at the bees
More sugar please
He really loves us after all
We’re gonna need another straw
We’re gonna need another straw

I don't usually like happy songs but I do find the lyrics of "Lemonade" very interesting. I particularly love "Smile at the bees ... More sugar please".

Get well soon Ivy and have some good rest :) Awaiting for your next blog.

Thank you all for your get well soon wishes. I guess I am only going through the full blown effects of the deadly flu as of today.

The one I experienced when I wrote this post is...well...just an appetizer. =,(
