I used to teach wellness workshops at Whole Foods & other places & one of the most popular was Good Mood Foods with recipes full of ingredients to help improve moods. Dark chocolate, avocado, salmon & berries are a few of my favorite picks when I want to #SwingTheMood & this book is a good resource for eating to improve your health & mood.💙

Mahalo to @Cinfhen & @squirrelbrain for the fun month of musical prompts! 😘

Tamra Mmmmmm chickpeas, one of my favorites! Tonight I had a salad of chickpeas & arugula & goat cheese with a very lemony Caesar. That made me happy! 😁 I‘ll check out the book. 3mo
DebinHawaii @Tamra Your salad sounds delicious! I love chickpeas too! 😋 3mo
squirrelbrain Thanks for all of your wonderful posts this month! ❤️ @Tamra - your salad sounds delicious! 🥗 3mo

The Mitford Murders | Jessica Fellowes
post image

Set in the 1920s, this is the first in the Mitford sisters mystery series. I‘ve yet to read this one, but Downton Abbey fans will note the name Fellowes and it‘s connection to the series (the creator‘s daughter). The 1920s puts me in the #SwingTheMood ...a time of flappers and the beginning of laissez faire thoughts and dreams.

Thank you to @squirrelbrain and @Cinfhen for a fun #ayupaugust month!

squirrelbrain #SwingtheMood definitely puts me in mind of the 1920s too... thanks for all of your fab contributions this month 😘❤️ 3mo
Cinfhen Thanks for playing along ❣️❣️❣️glad to have you (and the boys 😸) back 3mo

The Great Gatsby | Francis Scott Fitzgerald

I initially thought I'd be posting about a jazz musician for #swingthemood, but after looking at the lyrics I was reminded of Gatsby. #ayupaugust @Cinfhen @squirrelbrain

Thanks to everyone for taking part this month - I‘ve loved seeing all of your wonderful ideas for prompts!

Of course, I‘ve saved the classiest, most high-brow, music until the end..... Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers were formed in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, in 1989. 🤣🎶


TrishB Definitely the worst song pick 😱😱 3mo
arlenefinnigan I had both their albums on tape. I can't believe they made two 😂 3mo
