Hard to believe it is already April. It snowed yesterday, some rain and ice mix, but overall next week the weather is looking up, yay!
Currently listening to…
Thanks sis for letting me know she had a new album. My favorite songs on the album, “The Bones” (above!), “Great ones,” “A song for everything,” and “To hell and back.” But they are all great and oh so perfect for listening with your windows down in the car when the spring weather arrives! 🙂
A few reasons I love the song “The bones” so much…
We’re in the homestretch of the hard times
We took a hard left, but we’re alright
Yeah, life sure can try to put love through it, but
We built this right, so nothing’s ever gonna move itWhen the bones are good, the rest don’t matter
Yeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatter
Let it rain ’cause you and I remain the same
When there ain’t a crack in the foundation
Baby, I know any storm we’re facing
Will blow right over while we stay put
The house don’t fall when the bones are good
Frankie and I have been together a long time. It will be 10 years this December! We started dating when I was 18 (now 27) and he was 21 (now 30)
We just bought a house and it talks about the bones of a house (symbolic of their love) being so good, it won’t crack, even when life tries to test it.
This song is a reminder that when the foundation of your love and friendship is there, yes life gets hard, but it will work the way it’s meant to, as long as you both work at it.
Also listening to…
I don’t think I talked about this in my blog yet. Mostly because…. my blog has been slacking for some time. I may have mentioned that I got into listening to audiobooks recently, which I still love, but I’m not sure why it took me so long to get into podcasts!
I love podcasts about real life mysteries and murders.
Right now, I’m listening to “Cold.“
It’s a true life murder story of Susan Powell, who goes missing, and the main suspect is her very strange husband Josh Powell. I’m only on episode 6 so tbd how this turns out, but I suspect Josh is bipolar, as he frequently made binge purchases and seems to be experiencing episodes of mania at times. Josh was an extremely controlling husband and Susan even warned her co workers that if something happened to her, to “look to Josh first.”
The thing I love about this podcast is the real life clips of their actual voices, like when Susan was instructed by her lawyer to videotape her assets in their house. You can actually see the video here. She just sounds so defeated in the recording, and makes a statement of “Hope everything works out and we’re all happy and live happily ever after…as much as that’s possible.”
It’s just a very binge worthy podcast, highly recommend.
Podcasts and audiobooks are an awesome way to get through cleaning your house and chores!
House stuff. And having so much fun doing it!
I love being a homeowner and watching it grow with us. One of my favorite things about our house is we live across from a campground that has a lake so we hear a lot of geese in the early mornings (and throughout the day) and the peepers and crickets at night are amazing. So loud! Last night it was icy out and I still heard them in the distance.
We also get amazing birds and other wildlife! Yesterday I saw an entire family of Robins searching for worms after the rain for their babies.
We painted our bedroom a light very calming Sage color.
It took us so long to pick a color but I’m so glad we took our time!
We ordered a couch and a table, but they won’t be here for 6-8 weeks.
I found lights in the garden shed, never opened, (I love free) and hung them in the kitchen and outside.
I haven’t had a lot of time lately to watch shows, but when I do, these are my favorites right now.
Just started- The OA: Part 2
This show is actually pretty cheesy but I can’t get enough of it.
After his wife dies, search and rescue commander John West uproots his three children, moving the family from Boston to his rural hometown of Turtle Island Bay. The death affects each of their lives as John and his kids cope with their loss. Along the way, John faces situations that challenge him personally and professionally while his offspring deal with typical issues that face kids and teenagers, including school and friendships.
A lot of the reason I like this show is because they live in an aquarium and there’s a penguin that just happened to still be there named Tux.
