Saturday morning breakfast; coffee and muffins and the fabulous Nina Simone.

Like other artists I’ve included in my 30 Days, 30 Songs list, Nina Simone has provided much of the soundtrack to my adult life and I struggled to select just one song.

But this one is upbeat and perfect for a Saturday morning — and I do like the video.

We’re nearing the end of the 30 Days, 30 Songs challenge hosted by Sarah at Art Expedition. You can see her latest musical choice here.

Another not-exactly-Six-Word-Saturday; a challenge hosted by Debbie at Travel with Intent.

So many songs, so little time

Cheating a bit for this week’s Six Word Saturday because I think this image works nicely with a song that’s on my 30 Days, 30 Songs list.

In my mind, it belongs to a time when the boy-child was a big fan of SingStar, which we seemed to play constantly for a while.

When we weren’t fishing.
