Loving my snow shoveling during our likely last blast of winter here in upstate New York! Listening to my mp3 player and buzzing back and forth over our driveway, whirling on the turnarounds...getting it done even more quickly than our neighbor with the snow blower!
Had fun with "Hot Fun In The Summertime"...like a beach party in the snow...lol! This was Manhattan Transfer's version with Chaka Khan guesting and steaming it up...nice nod to Sly Stone...which is also tucked away on ye olde mp3 player also.
Loving Spoonful's "Do You Believe In Magic" was another. One of my VERY favorite songs by Brasilian artist Ivan Lins, "She Walks This Earth" with all the energizing percussion and driving beat...WONDERFUL song!
Unfortunately YouTube doesn't have Lin's version but a very respectable one performed by Sting on a tribute album to Lins:
Another great tune from Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine, "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You"
How can one NOT dance...? :-)
Great day for being on the MOVE! An hour each for both rounds of shoveling, 35 mins. on treadmill 5 mph, 10 incline, 2.9 miles, an hour of Wii bowling while messing around with the balance board in between bowls and a 30 min. strength training with dumb bells and resistance bands.
Not bad for a grown up snow day, eh...?
ps...dreaming of yet one MORE snow day tomorrow...please...?!?!
pps...did anyone catch the Nordic Combined event...? I was EXHAUSTED just WATCHING them going it! Such a FULL BODY sport! Whew!
