It’s been that kind of week already, and BotB Winner for 07.01.2020

It literally just started, but feels like it's been ten days long already.

The 4th nearly wiped us out, as the dogs are not fond of fireworks. Poor babies :(

I was so exhausted Sunday that I didn't finish my Music Monday post. And on Monday I was even more exhausted, so I just decided to opt out for this week.

Battle of the Bands for 07.01.2020

How is July already here? I can't believe half the year is gone. True, it's been a challenging year. And it seems like both a decade and no time at all have passed.

As is customary around here on the first, it is time for another Battle of the Bands!

What is a Battle of the Bands, you ask? It s a twice-monthly blog hop hosted by Stephen T. McCarthy. On the 1st and 15th of each month, participating bloggers choose two covers of the same song and pit them against one another in a “battle”, and their readers choose the winner by listening to both versions and voting for their favorite in the comments.

Music Monday for 06.29.2020

Just a little bit late! Time got away from me yesterday (the time I would have normally been typing this post) because I exhausted myself working in the yard and pretty much passed out after dinner and a shower.

No worries, though. It's freebie week at Monday's Music Moves Me, and I'm keeping it short and sweet.

Music Monday for 06.08.2020 & Site Design Refresh for Summer

Hey, y'all!

It's time for another Music Monday, but first...how do you like my new design? I love the nautical colors, and have been waiting specifically for summer (although it's not officially summer for another twelve days) to use them. I also loved my old header font, but that's something I frequently change as well. I love it! I wish I had more ways to utilize all of the colors I chose, but prefer the simplicity of just using pops of color via the links.

Battle of the Bands and Music Monday Extravaganza for 06.01.2020

BUT FIRST, a couple of things: I worked on this post a while in advance, and certainly don't want to come across as insensitive to the pain no doubt most of us are feeling for George Floyd and his loved ones (and countless others I can't even begin listing here). We are in some really scary, difficult times, and I'll be honest here: I just don't have the words right now. I only have my feelings, which I am trying to process. I honestly don't even know if I'll write about it. It's one of those things where everything else seems trivial, but again...I just don't have the words right now.
