I am sure that many of my older readers recognize the words to the song from the 1946 "Song of the South" Disney movie, sung by Uncle Remus of Br'er Rabbit fame. It is such a happy song that I have always (along with many other people) enjoyed the zippin' along of it. I am most happy and enjoying life most of the time, and sometimes when I feel particularly good, I like to sing that song as I bounce around the house. It just makes me happy to sing it, too.
Zest is one of those words which describes the stuff they scrape from citrus fruits to use in a dish. Now, I don't care much for the scraped off stuff, but I do like the other definition which is the fresh zippiness we feel with life. Life needs zest in order to carry us along with that feeling of things going right.
Zip-a-dee-do-dah, zip-a-dee-a, my-oh-my-what a wonderful day, plenty of sunshine headin' my way, zip-a-dee-do-dah, zip-a-dee-a. Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder, it's the truth, it's actual, everything is satisfactual! Zip-a-dee-do-dah, zip-a-dee-a, wonderful feelin', wonderful day!
That is the way I feel most days, y'all. And now the A to Z challenged is zipped up. I have enjoyed it tremendously and would not have missed it for the world. It has been a glorious trip, hasn't it?
Today, I have a package to send, breakfast to eat, shower to take, kitchen to clean, laundry to do, lunch to have with friend, Judy, go to the drug store, bank, fill up the gas tank on my little Red Yaris, and then think about what I am going to pack for my trip to Texas. This evening, I will be reading and commenting on blogs. Just another day in the life of a little old grammy who loves having places to go, people to see, things to do, just life in general, and her Lord most of all.
This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for today. Much love to each of you, my friends. Welcome to new readers (friends) and have a blessed day. Bye for now. More later.
