i want to kayak
i should really learn how to swim
i should get my bike fixed…
i need a new raincoat
oh! i should paint my toenails

with warmer weather and longer days
and getting back out with the camera again.
i took that photo last weekend on an early morning drive
and just as i was taking it
a gust of wind blew up
and suddenly, it was like i was in a little bit of a snowglobe…
it was like magic.
and i like magic.
with my new adorably cute Agnes pez dispenser
that someone sweetly surprised me with….
and it came with lemony candy
and i like candy.
♥ with this forgotten favorite video
If you follow me on Facebook,
(not only do you know that I post WAY too much but…)
you probably also know
that I love music.
I can’t sing.
I don’t know a note.
I can’t tell pitch or tone or anything else…
but I know what I like
and I can’t go a day
without listening to music.
I have to have a playlist
on all night while I am sleeping.
I listen to music in the car,
while I’m painting, cooking, cleaning, working…
I just lay on the
couch or the
bed or the
and lose myself in the darkness
and the words
And I will listen to almost anything…I’m pretty open…
I can honestly say there is no genre that I refuse to listen to
anything from…though there are definitely songs that I don’t like….
(and…I hate dire straits. Let’s just get that out there and move on)
Here’s what I have been playing on repeat lately (and, um, I should warn you…I like songs that
say the eff word sooooo….just be careful if you are clicking links)
she is beautiful - andrew w.k. (I listen to this every morning loud as soon as I get out of bed)
seagulls stop it now - this is not actually a song…it’s a bad lip reading video but I have a weird taste in music and listen to this constantly as well. And, yeah, I still love what does the fox say sooooooo….I warned you. I have weird taste in music. :)
little bit stronger - leighton meester (i forgot about this song. I don’t listen to a lot of country but this song…well….it speaks pretty loud to me right now…so…it’s on the daily playlist)
And I looooooooooove recommendations for new music! :) Hint, hint…heehee.
so this is likely going to be a post
with a lot of random things
that i am currently loving
but in no particular order
because my plan
WAS to do a fall list
but wanted to have some fall photos
to go with that
but i don’t have any yet
because my plan is to go out with the camera tomorrow
(and when i say camera, i mean poor little back up camera
because my 70D broke last weekend which is causing me
great sadness…but that sad story does not belong on a
friday i’m in love list…) and
so there will be some random shots thrown in to this post
because…well…that’s what i do…
including this photo
that i love in a hundred different ways
because i found this little bit of broken poetry
onto the back of a bench
when taking maternity photos
and immediately loved it.
weird things make me immensely happy.
on with the list of random things i am loving today.
♥ chicken burgers. I know…that’s a big stretch for me
from my usual chicken fingers but…I’m on a bit of a
chicken burger binge. Hahaha. Last week it was chicken fricot,
next week I plan to be on a grilled cheese kick.
High-brow culinary tastes, I know. :)
♥ this show. How did I not know about this show?
I loved the pilot…I REALLY hope it keeps going.
♥ i loved this…such a great idea…somehow i suspect it wouldn’t be the
♥ i can’t even tell you HOW MUCH I AGREE WITH THIS. Play is
incredibly important (and honestly, not just for kids…for grown ups, too).
♥ maybe I’m hungry…there seem to be a lot of posts about food…
but…..this is a gift I would write a thank you note for. :)
♥ this guy is coming to moncton!
♥ i was invited to trivia last night at a local restaurant/bar.
Normally, if I am already in my pjs, well, I’m pretty much done
for the night but I actually changed back into real person clothes
and went out AND I AM SO GLAD I DID. I suck at trivia but the
caesars were good. Oh! And the company, heeheehee!
♥ i started this course a couple of weeks ago and am really enjoying it.
This week they are talking about meditation and I can’t wait! :)
♥ this made me mad…and cry…and curse…and cheer…and think.
♥ my 18 year old has me totally hooked on this song…
no links this time.
i think we all know that i love summer...
the beaches, the boardwalks, airshows, dairy bars,
dirt roads, starry nights, sunshine...all of that sweetness.
but i also love september.
(and not just because my birthday is in september)(heh)
september feels like a new beginning...
a mini-fresh start...you know...before the REAL fresh start of
january and a new year.
but this is kind of like a reset button...
where i think about picking up on all the stuff
i let slide as i made time for beaches and dairy bars....
where i start thinking about new routines
and maybe getting up earlier
and hey, maybe i'll try that keto thing everyone is talking about
and remember when i said i was going to do yoga everyday
and hey, have you seen my bullet journal anywhere?
so here is a little list of what is making me feel
kind of excited about september (in a geeky kind of way):
- fall leaves!
- bullet journal
- make chocolate chip cookies
- writing group
- have had some requests for handmade cards :)
- might try my hand at family photos again
- apple picking
- board game nights
- listening to music
- watching movies (finish my Marvel list)
- make an apple pie
- take pugsley for walks
- read lots more books (on book 35 right now)
- try to get some prints ready to sell (maybe at a craft fair)
- would like to try to do some "nursery room" paintings...like...of farm animals maybe?
- maybe try to make a coloring book
- finish the 365 robot series
- sort out my life
yeah...i kind of like september. :)
