sharing is caring.




Oh my do I have a lot on the "to-do" list today. I've already got some of it started, bed stripped, laundry tumbling, dishes soaking, homemade "carpet fresh" sprinkled, lists made...so far, so good.

But before I really get going I decided I needed to drink some water. So why not pop in and say hi while I'm at it?

Over the past week or two I've come across some things I wanted to share with you...like this song. So good. Have you heard of Bon Iver? New faves for me. Love them.

Oh...another new favorite? The band Alabama Shakes. LOVE them. This is my favorite song of theirs...so far. (Did I already share it here? I think I did. Ah well...it's worth an encore.) Come on baby girl, you got to get back up! Love that line.

As I do my chores today I will be employing some of the things I learned from the Flylady. Now beware. I am giving you this link because I believe that Flylady has a lot of helpful hints and insights where keeping a home in concerned. But I have to warn you that if you sign up the emails can be a bit, uh, shall we say overwhelming? There are TONS of emails. I signed up years ago and finally had to unsubscribe because it was just too much.

But recently I found myself needing her guidance again so I returned to her web site for a refresher. And lo and behold, she's now on Facebook. So I Liked her and now I receive her reminders in my feed. This way I can choose to read them...or not. And I don't have to worry about deleting tons of unwanted mail. Win win!

Hey, do you ever visit Cold Antler Farm blog? I do. I really enjoy reading about her life. She is one brave gal. She made a short video documenting her first year of living her dream...it's so inspiring. She's living her life to the fullest, that's for sure.

Oh...and talk about inspiring? I think I've shared this before, too, but it is definitely worth a another look. My Friend Maia...I wish she was my friend, too. I want to hug her.

I've been in deep thought a lot lately. I know you couldn't tell by what I'm sharing here lately. I guess some of it is still just too deep...maybe I'm still sorting things out in my mind. Or maybe writing it out here will help me sort through...as is often the case I've found.

Anyway...the sink is full of hot, sudsy water and all the stuff on my counters is soaking...getting ready for a good scrub. I can't wait to dip my hands in that hot water...a simple pleasure, isn't it? A good reminder to be grateful for hot water...for running water...for water at all.

It's a beautiful day here...I'm going to enjoy it. I pray you enjoy yours, too...xo

I want Maia to be my friend too. Now I'm off to check out your other recommendations.

I am so glad I am not the only one who unsubscribed to the flylady emails, good golly, that was out of control. I'm still keeping my sink clean (kind of) and doing dishes before bed, but that's about it.

Loved having a minute to catch up here!!
