Music to My Ears

I don’t like blowing my horn. I try to let others do that for me or pay someone.  Today is the day for me to blow baby blow.  I am so proud.  I started by walking again and I feel better for it.  I even downloaded a new list of songs I listen to as a walk.  Here is my play list for this week.  I think I am going to make a change every week(at least try to).  If you have any songs that I can walk to,let me know.  A lot of my stuff is old school, but I like all kinds of music.  Come along and take a walk with me. .


Brandy – Best Friend

Slave – Watching you

OutKast- Moving Cool

Nelly – Hot in Herre

Peoples Choice – Nursery Rhymes.

Hall and Oates – You Make My Dreams Come True

Cameo – I Just Want To Be.

Maxwell – Sumthin’ Sumthin’

I wish I had all day……

I have found that I love blogging about the things that interest me.  I have so many passion, it is hard to contain them all, but  I have narrowed them down to Jewelry, Music, Dancing, Crafts and Computer and living as frugally as possible.   I am keeping up with at least 7 blogs.   Each one for each of my passions and two my frugal living.  


As usual when I sign on, I will go through the same motions, one being checking my email.  I will discard whatever I do not want to read or just plain old spam, which my spam meter has overlooked.  Next I tackle any of my rewards programs and so on and so on.   Today was no different.   I happen to find some other blogs, that I will be following and looking for more like-minded individuals and their ideas.   Now here is my point. 

Now don’t get mad, but I don’t always comment or FB Like a post of the blogger that I am following.  I read every single post.  I respect each an every post, because as a fellow blogger, this takes work and time.   


Beside my own blogs, making jewelry, cards, reading emails, checking out other emails, Oh by the way, did I mention that I clip coupons(not extreme, just trying to save a buck).  That is a job in itself.    I still have mention, cleaning, taking care of family, sleeping and just general living.

I like reading the info.    For me, it take less time for me to read.  I just don’t always comment.  Sometimes, I will comment and sometimes,I will just like.  It depends on the content. It depends on a lot of things.  I just love reading thoughts, ideas, transformations, patterns of the human mind and experience.  So don’t get mad.  I am still out there, cheering you on, reading your post and enjoying the moment.

Today I feel like…………………

Hopeful and some what at peace.   I was listening to some music(always my favorite form of entertainment) and feeling  a bit lonely and happy.  I miss my home town and my family.  I miss being able to go out, play cards, enjoy all that Chicago has to offer.   I just miss stepping’ to some R. Kelly and OJays.   Music is my go to whenever I am feeling hopeful and out of joint.    Memories start to flood my mind and I am in a trance.  Even the bad memories are altered to sounds of some Teddy or Prince.   The song take to place where I can clear my head and sort out the ills and deals in my life.     I play old school and some new.   I mix it up from Anita Baker to Parliament, Atomic Dog.     Usher and Justin are my backups when I can find any record that will soothe the rage in me.   I like some of the new, but my heart belongs to the past.    When you sounded just like your record, on stage.  Harmony and singing were the name of the game.   That just how I roll.

Luther, Teddy, Isley Brothers, The fabulous OJays ( ah Eddie), Al Green – I listen to these men when I want to get close.  I want to touch and be touched.  I want to close my eyes and be swept away on a golden cloud.

Anita, Whitney, Aretha, Gladys – Girl power to the highest.  This empowers and encourages me to stand tall  and show them what sister hood is all about.  These ladies talked the best game in town and knew how to back it up.

Parliament, Bootsy, Slave, Lakeside – I listen to this group when I want to stomp.  I mean stomp hard.  Stomp al night long.   Sleep a few hours and stomp again the next night.  Remember I am not just knee-deep

Temptations, Four Tops, The Dells, Spinners  – Lighthearted and carefree.   Not thinking about anything, just enjoying the day.  A lazy afternoon.   Not enough of those days.

I used to fall asleep listening to music.  I miss that.    Music could pull me out of a funk and make me smile the whole day.   It can make me weep with joy and sorrow.    It is the one communication no one has to explain.    Music can raise a nation and tear down the wall of hate.   It has a message for everyone who has an ear to listen.  While my taste runs to the era of the  70’s, 80’s and 90’s music, there is something for everyone and for every walk of life.   Oh, let me turn the radio up, that’s my jam.
