Lisa Wills Sings "The Way I Am" by Indrid Michelson

I recorded this song, how fun is this ... I did my own background vocals.

I recorded a song 24 years AGO in a studio that cost a lot of money and it sounded nothing as nice as this one!  

THE WAY I AM sung by one of my favorite artists, Ingrid Michelson.

Have a listen and tell me what you think,

Brandon Turns 15. Happy Birthday Handsome Guy!

March 22nd, Brandon turned 15.
Here is Tigist, Brandon & Evan.  Brandon invited a few friends to go to a huge trampoline place where you literally bounce off walls.  I hope he had a great day.

Of course we had to drive to the Lamborghini Dealership to touch, see and smell these puppies.

Our favorite color

Can you imagine driving in this baby?

So close, yet so far from owning one.

Tigist was such a big girl about the birthday party being about her big brother and not her.  She was very excited for him to have a birthday and cake and prezzies.

Back in March Photos

I tried to post these back in March, but here they are now

Thank God for this yard sale snow blower, it is the bomb for clearing our property. 

I love popping my head out the door during the day or right before I go to bed.  I say g'nite to the day and take a deep breath in of this incredible air that smells so fresh and crisp...especially in this Mile High City.

Living on a corner, you need to clear the front, the corner and all along the side.  So sometimes we just keep on going and do a bunch of neighbors.  It's good exercise and gets you all warmed up.

Hard to imagine this was March when at the moment I have the fan in the living room on high cause I'm hot.

When Life Gives You Lemons ... Make Limoncello!

The Limoncello is now in process.  The rinds of 10 large lemons are swimming in a liter of rocket fuel.  This is 190 proof Vodka by Everclear.  They will soak for 5 days, shaking them only once a day.  Then the simple sugar added then sitting another 24 hours, then another 24 hours in the freezer.  So you know Wednesday night we're checking out the goods ... wanna come over?
This is the adorable Luigi and Francesca.  They allowed me to stay in their Rome apartment as well as their Tuscany 13th Century Monastery home.  They are in Santa Fe at the moment exploring the gorgeous middle America.  They call me and tell me how they are doing and they are truly having the time of their life.  They come back here to Denver on Sept. 1, 2, 3 & leave on 4th back to Rome.  They are absolutely life-long friends, for sure.  I just love these guys.

I'm baaaaaaack!

Hey y'all,

I haven't posted in so long, life has been messy, and busy, and unexpected, and much expected.  But I look forward to expanding on it all very soon.

I had tried to post pics back in March, but blogspot has done something funky and it doesn't seem to be as easy as it used to be.  I'll be looking into that.

Even now, it's acting up with my typing.

  • But, for now, I'm off to my travel writing class with a Denver University Professor.
  • Then, tomorrow, I shop for my ingredients to make my home made Italian Limoncello liquor.  (Nancy, I must drop off a bottle to you when it's done in 10 days, and Brandon wants to hang out with Ben)
  • And I'm doing some very exciting things in my life as of late.
  • More later, miss you all.  Just don't forget about me...
