February Fling – 2019

Sadly, the shed could not be constructed yesterday because of the rain.  Hopefully Monday will be rain free and they can go ahead with it. 

The prompt for today in Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “words that end in -ly”  My new studio is just about all that’s on my consciousness these days.  Is that even a thing?  I know it’s really exciting for me even though it’s going to be a lot of work with the painting and moving everything out there.

I was also able to chime in today with the Love is in da Blog theme of songs from the 1940’s with this one:

Have I Told You Lately That I Love You

Have I told you lately that I love you
Could I tell you once again somehow
Have I said with all my heart and soul how I adore you
Well darling, I’m telling you now.
My world would end without a mem’ry of you
I’m no good without you anyhow
Oh, have I told you lately that I love you
My darling, I’m telling you now.
Have I told you lately how I miss you
When the stars are shining in the sky
Have I told you why the nights are long when you’re not with me
Well darling, I’m telling you now.
Have I told you lately when I’m sleeping
Every dream, I dream is you somehow
Have I told you that I’d like to share your love forever
Well, darling, I’m telling you now.
My world would end without a mem’ry of you
I’m no good without you anyhow
Oh, have I told you lately that I love you
Oh! darling, I’m telling you now.
Songwriters: Scott Wiseman
Have I Told You Lately That I Love You lyrics ยฉ Universal Music Publishing Group

The lyrics are slightly different on the version sung by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters:

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Could I tell you once again, somehow?
Have I told with all my heart and soul how I adore you?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I’m no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

Have I told you lately that I miss you?
When the stars are shining in the sky
Have I told you why the nights are long when you’re not with me?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I’m no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

Have I told you lately when I’m sleeping?
Every dream I dream is you somehow
Have I told you who I’d like to share my love forever?
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This heart would break in two if you refuse me
I’m no good without you anyhow
Dear, have I told you lately that I love you
Well, darling, I’m telling you now

This is the one that I remember best.  It brings back memories of my mom and dad. 

Those lyrics are also different from the ones written by Van Morrison and sung by Rod Stewart:

Have I Told You Lately
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do
Oh the morning sun in all its glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
And you fill my life with laughter
You can make it better
Ease my troubles that’s what you do
There’s a love that’s divine
And it’s yours and it’s mine
Like the sun
At the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the One
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do
There’s a love that’s divine
And it’s yours and it’s mine
And it shines like the sun
At the end of the day we will give thanks and pray to the One
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there’s no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that’s what you do
Take away my sadness
Fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles that’s what you do
Fill my life with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles that’s what you do
Songwriters: Van Morrison
Have I Told You Lately lyrics ยฉ BMG Rights Management

I’ve seen Rod Stewart twice now.  He really puts on a good show.

Okay, that’s it for my stream today.  I do have a relatively free weekend so I’m going to attempt to get some blog posts drafted and start working on some other things I’ve been putting off lately because of my extra work.  I know you’ve all been missing me terribly!  How you been doing?
