Spring, as usual

The rains have come back.

With force, dare I say. How can there be so much moisture in one set of clouds? I wanna say it’s been raining consistently (either pelting or spitting) for four straight days….at 45 degrees :(

I want summer back, please.

I’m trying to see this weather as an opportunity to get things done at home and the studio. I know full well what the fall will entail….teaching is a ton of work (that I will love, I’m sure), but I’ve got a list of things to get done before we arrive at that spot. So I hunker down and crank up Pandora.

I like to listen to Madeleine Peyroux when it rains. Her voice is like melted chocolate…running over the edges of the dark day.

This is my favorite album…you know you play something a lot when your kids groan from upstairs, “Not this one again.” I love it anyway.


What’s your rainy day music, Lovelies? I need a collection for rotation in my classroom.

Happy long weekend! I hope you enjoy some nice fam down-time.

    Maybe I’m a nerd, but I can never get enough of Enya. Love all of her songs!

    We have had a TON of rain here too! The good part is not having to pay for heat or air conditioning 😉 I love Madelyne too…she kind of sounds like Billy Holiday…but just so much more of a modern twist to her. SHe is VERY underrated in my opinion!

    Oh my heavens – I’ve been so crazy busy the past few months and while I read post after post, I am full of teary happiness for you! I love the goodness that is happening in your life and with your sweet fam!
