I'm Sittin' On Top of the World


While thinking of a title for this one and this song just came to me.

I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along, just rolling along.
I'm quitting the blues of the world,
Just singing a song, just singing a song.


It was recorded by many but I remember it from my Dad's set list back in the days when he was singing with his group.

I think sitting on top of the world is a great way to start the year out!

Dulce and Saundra - thank you both for coming by for a visit. I'm glad you both enjoyed this funny fluffy one!

Deb, I don't know how you capture the personality and expressions so well. That's probably good for me so I don't have to paint animals.

Awesome! Sitting on top of the world ... glad to see you coming around. Just keep smiling.

Doug, it's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it! (painting animals and sitting on top of the world)
Thanks!

Deb Kirkeeide said...

Thanks Chuck!
You are right - it is a closet door - took me a long time and a lot of promises to get her to stay up there!
(just kidding...:-)
Hope your new year got off to a roaring start!

Deborah said...

What talent you have! Not just in painting but in cat-communication. Can't imagine what you had to promise her to get her up there...

Deb Kirkeeide said...

Deborah - I had to promise that she keep her autonomy.

and if I truly had those talents I would start a new career as the Cat Whisperer!

Thanks for your visit!

Meredith - I agree, starting the new year on top of the world is a wonderful thing. Here's to all of us spending our year there!
Thanks for your comment and visit!

Deb Kirkeeide said...

Gypsy - thanks for stopping by and for your always wonderful comments.
I always look forward to our visits!

and thanks for your second visit to check up on me! I'm afraid the creative energy is low lately - most likely this time of year for me. It seems to be my pattern. I can usually go with it for a week or so but when it starts to stretch out I start to wonder what's going on!

Great job. Perfect cat posture.

I wish one of my three cats would do this! Terrific capturing of, well, the essence of cats!
