Now Listening To…

While waiting for the coffee to perk, it’s nice to listen to some new tunes. These are the ones I’m listening to this morning. I hope you enjoy them, too!

Now Listening To…

Waking up early on this morning which is promising awesomeness from the skies. The first pot of coffee has been consumed and the second is perking. My husband and I are the only ones awake and the tunes can be savored, just like the coffee, in the relative quiet of the morning. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I like to wake up slowly in the mornings. The worst ‘morning’ thing to me is to have to hit the floor, running. I’ve been blessed to be able to do that this morning. I function so much better for the rest of the day. Hope you enjoy today’s tunes!


Now Listening To…

No excuses, just facts… I’ve been super busy since we got back from our vacation. We’ve been fighting a summer cold for a while. I’ve been working on my mixed media art. And we’ve been tackling some long overdue projects around the house, as well as chasing a few storms in our area. I’ll post when I’m able but I’m sure the posts will remain sporadic. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like blogging because there are other things to do and see. Everything in moderation, eh? It’s all about balance. Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy these tunes.

Our oldest daughter introduced me to this one and I really like it.


Now Listening To…

We returned from our vacation Wednesday and after driving all day, we were really just ready to get some rest. Yesterday we hit the full-speed, normal work day and it moved much faster than I was ready for. But today, I’ll be able to post some tunes to share with you this morning while you wake up with your coffee or tea…or whatever.

And here’s a bit longer one for those who need to start the morning slowly…like me! *chuckle*

Nothing Says Summer Quite Like A Car Show…and Tunes

My husband and I were able to attend a car show during our stay with family. It’s been several years since the last car show we attended and we were pretty stoked. So I decided to share some of my photos with you. I hope you’ll enjoy them. And don’t forget to scroll down for the tunes!

So what kind of tune would you choose when thinking of classic cars and car shows? Something with punch? Something with a classic edge? Something with a lot of bass? Let’s see what I can find.

They played this one at the car show.

They played this one as we were leaving the venue and my husband sang along.

And this is one my husband thinks of when he thinks of classic cars and car shows.

Here’s a steady, smooth one that my husband also requested to go with this post.

I hope you enjoy the tunes and the photos! And if you get a chance, visit the Summit Racing store in McDonough, GA. The people are friendly and they host awesome stuff like this!

Now Listening To…

Good morning! I’m enjoying my coffee with my family this morning and enjoying some nice tunes. I hope you enjoy listening to these!

The first song is titled Come Awake and I thought that was appropriate for a morning post.

This one is a nice chillstep tune.

This tune is a long-playing chill mix.

Now Listening To…

Happy Independence Day! In honor of the holiday, I’m posting my favorite patriotic song. I hope you’ll enjoy it and the long chill/dubstep mix that follows. Stay safe out there, readers!

Happenings And Tunes

So you want to know what I’ve been up to that’s taken precedence over my blogging? Well, for starters, I’ve been storm chasing with my husband lately. Here’s one of my best photos captured with my not-so-smart phone. We’ve seen a pretty active storm season this year and I can’t wait to see what else we’ll get to experience before the stormy season is done.

This is a photo of a storm front that was part of a pretty impressive and active storm system that passed through our area.

So…yeah…storm chasing has been added to my list of Things I Do.

I’ve also been continuing to work on my own musical creations. I’m currently looking for a reasonably priced music creation/composition program. My husband asked me to create a few short instrumental pieces to use with some of his time lapse photography. I’m really looking forward to being able to do that. I’ve also been working on my vocal/piano music. I’m eager to give one of my pieces a try at the next available open mic night I can get to.

And the kids’ play is now complete but June was pretty well taken up with theater practices and the run of the play. We really were quite busy with all the work involved in helping the play succeed. The kids enjoyed it but we’re all glad it’s over.

Something new I added to my blog is a Creative Commons license. You’ll want to check out the specs on that before trying to download or redistribute any of the works I create and share here. Thanks for being courteous!

Our family decided to take a trip and refresh ourselves and we’ve also determined that we need to do something different each month to keep the creativity flowing and the spirit, mind and body refreshed. So far, we’ve visited the Consolidated Gold Mine in Dahlonega, GA (the site of the largest vein of gold in the US, and Brasstown Bald, which is the highest point in Georgia. Words cannot express the beauty of the view from Brasstown Bald. And there is nothing like the gold mine where we live in Louisiana. We learned so much!  You can see more photos I took by clicking here to go to my Instagram page (or you can click on one of the photos in the side bar!). And if that’s not enough (really it isn’t!), then you should definitely check out John’s blog by clicking here and his Instagram page by clicking here. We’ll continue posting nifty things we see along our life journey at these places. You never know what you’ll see next! Life is good!

And now for a tune! Here’s a chill mix I spotted in my YouTube search. I hope you enjoy the next 58 minutes. :) See you soon!

Now Listening To…

The play is done. Vacation begins. I hope to post more often now. Please enjoy these tunes. The first one, I’ve posted previously and it’s one of my favorite chill mixes. The other two, I believe, have never been posted on my blog. I could be mistaken, though. <chuckle> These are nice, smooth, mellow…just plain awesome. Enjoy!

Theater Busyness and Tunes

You may have been wondering what the heck is up with my sporadic posting. Well, with the children’s play we’re participating in, and my current work schedule, there really hasn’t been much time leftover for anything. And if that wasn’t enough, our internet has been slow, to crazily sketchy, to non-existent. Yesterday was a ‘no internet’ day and it wasn’t because we turned off our electronic devices. We lost our internet because of some rough storms that passed through. I did try to post through my phone but our cell signals have been just as sketchy and the post wouldn’t go through. So here I am tonight, throwing out a few tunes for y’all to listen to.

Also, if you’re interested in seeing the interesting things I see during my life journey, you can follow me on Instagram. I post pictures of…all kinds of things. If I post a picture of a family member, it won’t be the usual kind of picture. I’m kinda quirky. If you’ve followed and read my blog for any length of time, you probably already know that. So, hope to see you there! You will see photos like this:

I like to call this one Mr. Awesome Album Cover, because my husband has a shirt that says 'I'm Awesome!' and this photo really does look like an album cover to me.

I like to call this one “Mr. Awesome ~ Album Cover”, because my husband has a shirt that says ‘I’m Awesome!’ and he really is! And this photo really does look like an album cover to me. Yes, I know he’s wearing his Punisher shirt in this particular photo… LOL

On with the tunes! We’ll start with a dubstep appetizer…

Serve up a drum and bass entree…

And finish up with a nice chill mix for dessert.
