A Norah Jones Sunrise

Winter sunrise in January: LadyD Books
 "Sunrise" is the first single of Norah Jones' multi-platinum album Feels like Home. I just love her style.



SoCal winter sunrise: LadyD Books

An amazing sunrise for January looking eastward toward a local mountain range. The palm tree and avocado branch add that special touch, reminding me of country living here in SoCal.






Lyrics to Sunrise by Norah Jones


Sunrise, sunrise
Looks like mornin' in your eyes
But the clocks held 9:15 for hours
Sunrise, sunrise
Couldn't tempt us if it tried
'Cause the afternoon's already come and gone

And I said hoo...
To you

Surprise, surprise
Couldn't find it in your eyes
But I'm sure it's written all over my face
Surprise, surprise
Never something I could hide
When I see we made it through another day

And I said hoo...
To you

Now good night
Throw its cover down
On me again
Oh and if I'm right
It's the only way
To bring me back

Hoo...
To you
Hoo...

Lyrics to Fiddler On The Roof: Sunrise Sunset

(tevye)
Is this the little girl I carried,
Is this the little boy at play?

(golde)
I don't remember growing older,
When did they?

(tevye)
When did she get to be a beauty,
When did he grow to be so tall?

(golde)
Wasn't it yesterday when they were small?

(men)
Sunrise, sunset (x2),
Swiftly flow the days.

(women)
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming even as we gaze.

(everyone)
Sunrise, sunset (x2),
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laiden with happiness and tears.

(tevye)
What words of wisdom can I give them,
How can I help to ease their way?

(golde)
Now they must learn from one another,
Day by day.

(perchik)
They look so natural together.

(hodel)
Just like two newlyweds should be.

(perchik and hodel)
Is there a canopy in store for me?

(everyone)
Sunrise, sunset (x2),
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laiden with happiness,
And tears


Photos for Skywatch Friday

As we celebrate the last day of January, I'm amazed at how lovely our weather has been on a winter's day in Southern California... while the rest of the U.S. has experienced such cold frigid temperatures. This morning I woke up to dew on the grass, so this is a good sign that rain is a-coming our way.

I hope you have a warm day, filled with many happy memories!
