Coffee and Tunes

It’s been too long since I posted tunes. I keep reblogging to promote other awesome bloggers I enjoy following, and it helps to let y’all know I’m still alive. I will post tunes this morning but I’m not going to post regularly here. I’ve decided to create a schedule because I just can’t keep up with /everything/ that’s on my plate right now. With the holiday season bearing down heavily upon me, and knowing that I haven’t put together anything we really need for those holidays, or for the upcoming events we are planning to attend, I have lots of work ahead of me. I’ll be posting at least once a week, probably on the weekend. But for today, here’s your selection of tunes to listen to with your coffee (or tea). I hope you enjoy them.



I love this statement. It’s so true!

Life is too short to be sad all the time, so laugh everyday, smile when you want to cry, love the ones that care for you, forget the ones that don’t, hang out with friends whenever possible, regret nothing because at one time it was everything you wanted, never backstab someone cause they will backstab you back, and just live life to the fullest because you only get one life.

I had to reblog this post. I’m only one year older and some of the things mentioned here are very similar to my own feelings. I don’t feel much different from my high school self. (I was a pretty serious kid and teen, an observer, and not easy to understand.) I loved fair rides but was terrified of roller coasters. Now I can’t get enough of them! LOL So in that way, I’m different, for certain. But I do feel like life was meant to be lived and we shouldn’t buy into the ‘adults must act like all other adults and wear sour faces for the rest of their lives’ attitude. I really hate that! There’s no way I’m giving up the things I love just because the years of my life are larger digits than others. I am definitely not a cookie cutter human.

This is not a significant age marker.

Lots of people turn 38. Some people probably freak out about getting this close to 40. Remember when you were a kid and 40 seemed super crusty? When I was a kid, 40 year old people were old and wizened and wrinkly. Usually gray, with a Marlboro hanging off their lip, cowboy boots on and a Coors in their hand.

Wait. No that was everyone in Texas when I was a kid. Except a few women.

But I digress.

10616249_10153350955927788_8419556661001708518_nThirty-eight is not what I thought it would be. And I certainly don’t look crusty. It’s probably that whole Benjamin Button thing.

Today I will do things that terrify me. I will ride roller coasters. I don’t remember being scared of roller coasters when I was younger, but now I can imagine every single thing that can go wrong.

Tea and Tunes

The time snuck up on me tonight! I’m watching football with my husband and waiting for the water to boil for tea. Here is a tune or two for you to enjoy. Both are from Electus. I’m really impressed with the stuff I hear from there.

Tea and Tunes

We took a pleasant break over the weekend. That’s part of the reason I’ve not been posting regularly. I’ve also been attempting to make sense of all the projects and activities I need to keep track of for our family and my business. It’s a bit of a scary mess, actually. Anyway, as we take it easy winding down with our cups of tea…

Here’s a chill playlist from a new channel I started following at the time I made my last tunes post: Keep Me Chilled. I hope you’ll enjoy the playlist.

A New Look

I updated my blog today. I decided I needed something fresh and new here, as well. I hope you’ll enjoy the new blog. I hope /I/ enjoy the new style. I’m going to try posting different ways to see how the posts show up.

Tea and Tunes

It’s been a little while since my last tea and tunes post. We were so busy yesterday, following the storm action in our area. And I’ve also been working on some art challenges and pushing myself creatively. And the weather turned cooler…finally. So tonight’s mug of tea will be warmly welcomed indeed! Check out these tunes! I have two 30 (+/-) minute tune mixes to share with you today. I found a new channel on YouTube. KeepMeChilled…check it out!
