Music Fridays: Better Days

I almost forgot it’s Music Friday! I first heard this song a week or two ago on one of my suggested Apple Music playlists that I listen to while working or cooking. Then I heard it again on the inauguration special the other night and I decided it would be my music selection for this…

It was a Glorious Day

I watched today’s inauguration ceremonies while I worked, taking glances at my personal computer to my left while I carried on with my regular tasks.
