A Brief (and Musical) Interlude

It’s been a hectic week. The kids’ dad had major surgery and I have been running the doctor-consultation phone line and the hospital-shuttle.
I haven’t been able to spend time in the kitchen or at the computer, and I am in withdrawal. I miss the hustle and bustle of blog-hopping, visiting with you all and cooking up a storm. Hope to be back to normal routine in another week or two 🙂

Music, especially upbeat music, is a great stress-reliever for me. I love old movies and the other night I watched The Wizard Of Oz, just to escape for awhile. Here is Judy Garland’s timeless “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” from that classic movie, along with a few other fun Judy Garland clips — all courtesy of YouTube:
