268/365 - Sunday & Sinatra*

Old "Blue Eyes" - Frank Sinatra! - (Frank Awnatra as my daughter Jenny would call him!)
* As a child, my fondest memory is of my Grandmother cooking Sunday dinner for the family as she listened to Polka music on an old radio. I never liked Polka music - but I loved my Grandmother.

My kids experienced me listening to Frank Sinatra while cooking the family meal on Sundays. They didn't like Sinatra - and I know they love me!

Lesson Learned: The design of love and good memories somehow always involves music, food and Sundays - and any day of the week for that matter!

lyricalthoughts I so agree Dan! Also I would like to add that good conversations and laughter adds to good memories.. Music definitely revives emotions. Nice post!:)

ArtBee In Search of Lost Time (Coined by French Author Marcel Proust)......
The narrator eats a madeleine and this triggers a memory where he saw a scene from his childhood in which he ate madeleines(a small cake) ...
The term now refers to an act, or a smell apparently insignificant, but which is emotionally charged and reminds us of something from the past.
Involuntary memory is a concept made famous by this novel and is sometimes referred to as "Proustian memory"
Thus the expression "Madeleine de Proust"

Annbramwell Some of my happiest memories are of my parents, my sisters and I listening to the New Christy Minstrels singing cowboy songs.. even now that we are all in our 40's an evening with the 'Minty Crystals' is enough to transform me into a 10 year old cowgirl again... I hope John is collecting memories like this from James and I too...

NellyBly Yea for Sundays..I cook for my daughters and families..(sometimes just one daughter and Drew) on Sunday. Wonderful time to eat our fav foods, visit and watch football..Church comes first for me most Sundays, I just have it almost done before I leave..Making good memories is what families are all about. Great post..
