Weekly Theme: Listen

I’m not always a good listener.  Lately, I feel like the universe has been trying to give me little hints, trying to steer me away from worrying and worst-case-scenario-ing, and toward being calmer, more focused and aware.

So this week’s theme of Listen comes just in time.  ohhelloholly and I are taking slightly different approaches to this week’s theme, but with the same hopeful heart and quiet determination.

Please join us if you’d care to.  

You’ve got to take it as it comes. Sometimes, it don’t come easy.

Stevie Nicks

Happy Sunday, darlings!  As you can see, the orchids are going gangbusters.  I think the weather has been absolutely perfect for them, very hot, plenty of wind, and short but heavy thunderstorms.  Actually everything is growing like crazy this year.  Even the wild Muscadine have grapes, and that hasn’t happened in ages.  Rainiest summer in many years.  Wish I could share some of this rain with the folks suffering from bad droughts.

Well I better get started on Sunday chores.  Laundry ain’t gonna wash itself.  You kids go have some fun.

Alright, raiselm, I’m watching The Parent Trap and I’m crying, too. I miss Natasha Richardson a lot.

Adult Beverages

Okay, this job has finally driven me to drink.  Just kidding (but only barely).

I think it is time I start drinking something more sophisticated than Dr. Pepper.

So if a girl who never drinks wants to start, what are your recommendations?

Marvin Gaye - I Heard It Through The Grapevine

This man had one of the greatest voices ever in the history of music.  It breaks my heart to the think of all the music he never got to make.

The Supremes - You Can’t Hurry Love

This song is as catchy as it was forty years ago.  Timeless.
