ThE KaRaOkE PaRtY..

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Happy Monday! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. I have a friend who I taught with years ago. She now lives in Orange County.     She and her husband host these over the top Karaoke parties once a year.   They invite a group of friends, and have the food catered. They also rent a professional Karaoke system.  Very high tech. She always invites Joe and I. Believe it or not the first time we went,  we hadn’t even done karaoke before, and we were really impressed with all the talent. Many of the guests are professional singers, or in a band. Anyway, I had been chatting with my friend, and getting caught up with what was going on in her life. People were … Continue reading

TeAcH YoUr ChILdReN WeLl….♡

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ How’s your weekend going….. Well, darn sometimes I really miss my parents.(pout) They passed away many years ago. I’d love to sit and chat with them.  And, one of the things that I’d would really love to do is thank them for everything they tried to teach me as a kid/child. And,of course they were successful at all of it. Ha! Ha! I think I’ve tried to remember what they taught me about life, and be a model for my own kids. (furry kids count)  I am pretty certain my father’s love for music has been shared on a post or two. http://marciascottagebythesea.com/2014/03/ode-to-joy/ There’s no doubt that any musical talent I have definitely came from him……actually any creative, artistic abilities too. Okay, even my decorating talents. (laughs)  But … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ Happy Friday EvErYoNE! Whoosh….my week flew by…. How about yours? I hope you had a terrific one. A little update on Despereaux http://marciascottagebythesea.com/2014/08/the-tale-of-despereauxand-kitchen/ the mouse.  I can’t help but think that it is finding lots of JOY here. We have done several things to trap the little guy. As a matter of fact,late last night Joe actually crawled under our house and set a few more traps. Sometimes, I think I hear it. But face it, when you live in a 1920’s house you are always  hearing noises.Well, I still hope the little guy makes it outside, and is gone  before Doomsday.                                                    Oh well, I’ll think about … Continue reading

We have another little visitor…..Oh, please don’t be alarmed it is only an adorable little mouse with possibly HuGe ears…..

Oh, and of course there is Miggery … Continue reading

Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡ One of the quirky things about blogging, is that I talk to myself all the time. Well, of course I’m really talking to YOU! But that is what a blogger does. TALKS. I am like chatty Marcia. Anyway, the thing is….there is so much YOU are learning about me! (laughs) And, I hardly know a thing about YOU!  Oh, well…who said that being a blogger was going to be  fair (pouts) I am just a little curious though about YOU.
