I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    It was a treat listening to Sir Duke and watching the drumming. P.S. I use applesauce in my brownies (especially homemade raspberry apple sauce when I have it in my freezer) substituting for half the fat in the recipe and I love how moist the brownies get.

  13. Ramona,

    So happy to see you on the dance floor. I loved the song and video!! The kid playing the drums to the Stevie Wonder record reminds me when DH and I were dating. He would play his drums to some of his favorite 45s. What fun memories! Thanks for boogieing with us today and for hosting the amazing DIY party. Now to check out some of these talented bloggers! 😉
