Thank God It's Monday!

Thank God it's Monday!

And Mariposa is on her Monday Fever once again!

Love is in the corner, and MANIC MONDAY welcomes the week with HEARTS. Yes, the theme for this week is HEART.

This is a photo I took years ago...yes, I left my heart at the shore...of love.

Crown Princess is hosting this week's FUN MONDAY, and she says -

Music plays a vital role in most of our lives. It is everywhere. I want to hear the ONE song that is you. The song that whenever it is heard, you smile. I am not looking for the soundtrack of your life, just that one song. Your friends hear it and think of you. You can post the video, the lyrics, the wav file. However you want to post it is great.

So, that makes today a MUSIC MONDAY! Oh what fun...they share the same theme.

So here is that ONE song that always make me smile...because people close to me always associate this song with me...I would love to think in a good way! ;)

She's Always A Woman
by Billy Joel

She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child,
But she's always a woman to me

She can lead you to love
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe
And she'll take what you give her, as long as it's free
Yeah, she steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

Oh--she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh--and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

And she'll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me


Oh--she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh--and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is frequently kind
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She's nobody's fool
And she can't be convicted
She's earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me

Please visit the wonderful people from -

I like the picture! It's amazing how rocks will take on those different forms.

We're not in the same time zone anymore. (sigh)

Happy MM! That is a remarkable heart-shaped rock...

Feb 11, 1990 was the day that Nelson Mandela was released from prison in South Africa. That is a brother with some serious heart! He is the topic of Manic Monday meme this week. Please visit if you have time or inclination.

peace, Villager

Sauntering Soul said...

I just found a heart shaped rock this weekend. But mine is not as cool as yours.

I keep reading Fun Monday posts saying "oh my gosh, I should have picked that song for my post" and yours is another one! Perfect choice.

Molly said...

Billy Joel is always a good choice. Did I read that he is soon to give his last concert at Shea Stadium?

Celeste said...

Great song and a great picture.

Princess Jewelee said...

I love that song!! One of my all time favorites.

The song on my blog you were asking about is called Good Night Kiss by Steve and Annie Chapman. Glad you liked it so much :)

Lee said...

Nice post for Monday! I LOVE your cool rock photo. It really looks like a piece of coral. I am a beach fanatic too...wish I was there right now.

I like the idea of a song for yourself. I would have to think on that one some. You have a good one with Billy Joel.
