I don't care for constant music while I'm on a long trip, but I do sometimes feel the need for some energetic music. The remaining 3 CD's I ordered came today, and I'm loading them on my computer, one at a time and then listening to the entire CD.
I made just vegetable beef soup this afternoon dancing around the kitchen to a Cuban beat! I have always loved Cuban music and wouldn't be surprised if I lived a former life in Cuba. My dad also loved it, and back in the mid to late 40's he played records on an ancient record player - well it would seem ancient to younger folks today but it seems like wonderful technology to me! I have said that I never want to leave the U.S. again, but if I ever have the opportunity to visit Cuba I will certainly do it! (Gotta practice up on my ChaChaCha!)
After the Cuba CD I loaded and played "Rumba, Mambo, ChaChaCha". Dang, I know the beat but couldn't remember the steps to the ChaCha. Gotta keep trying to see if it comes back to me. I guess my favorite is the Rumba beat tho', and I know the steps to that one - just follow the guy you're dancing with and hope he knows what he's doing!
One more to go, and that is "Music of the Andes". I love that music also and it seems like it is original (South) American music - without Spanish-African roots. Well, maybe a few Spanish roots.
These CD's will keep me awake and alert in the middle of the prairie, although I might zone out picturing the gorgeous Senor who is singing to me!
I think the soup looks, smells, and tastes delicious, but I'm sure I'll get tired of it before it's gone. Try as I might, I can't make a small amount of soup.
I'm anxious to get this darn jigsaw puzzle finished and then put it away. I have most everything together except for the sky, and that will be fun - all that blue.
I think I'll go eat a bowl of my soup. It's only a little after 4 pm, but I'm going to the gym this evening and I don't like to work out on a full stomach.
