Last Saturday night I had poured a glass of wine. I was busy getting ready to go out and left it on the counter.
A little while goes by and I head into the kitchen to take a sip of wine. As soon as I sipped, I literally spit the wine out into the sink. I look over at the 3/4 full bottle and then kinda of glance into the dining room where Rick was and think to myself [I sure hope he isn't trying to poison me] I dump the goblet of wine out and then just dump the rest of the bottle. It takes me a while to finish a bottle of wine and I have one of those wine stoppers that you pump the air out to keep the wine fresh and I just figured the wine went sour/bad.
Last night Daddy called to talk to Emma Sage and asks me how my wine was the other night? I laugh and said 'why, you trying to poison me' and he laughs and says "no, but the other other I caught out of the side of my eye Emma Sage over near the counter and she had the salt shaker".
I turn to Emma Sage and say "Emma Sage, did you put salt in my wine?"
She looks up at me with those sweet, innocent eyes and says "NO" and then quickly looks away [a tell-tale sign of a fib]
and then I say "Emma Sage" in a little bit of a stern/questioning voice. To which she replies:
"OK, I did it.......I just wanted to make your wine taste better!"
So sadly, I come to learn that I should have sampled the whole bottle, because I was quick to waste perfectly good wine!

"Joy, sorrow, tears, lamentation, laughter -- to all these music gives voice, but in such a way that we are transported from the world of unrest to a world of peace, and see reality in a new way, as if we were sitting by a mountain lake and contemplating hills and woods and clouds in the tranquil and fathomless water" - Albert Schweitzer

My whole life, music has always played an important part. When Emma Sage was first born, I noticed that if I played various pieces of music, she responded differently, and began to incorporate music into all of our 'therapy' [you might recall, but I provided all of Emma Sage's therapies at home or in programs in the general population [we were opted out of EI]....music, dance and movement.
So, as I have been working through somethings in my own life, I turn once again to music to help sooth my soul and clear my mind.
Emma Sage is more than happy to assist Momma in singing and dancing.
Of late, I have fallen in love with this performer......and I'm thinking I have a new 'favorite'
