I'm having a really hard time drawing inspiration from the writing prompts this week - not because of the prompts themselves, but my mind is cluttered and I"m currently watching YouTube videos of how to replace a toilet tank's fill valve...
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.
...on 06.19.2020, because me and my wishy-washy ways.
I couldn't decide which of the prompts to write about this time around. It was between Something someone said recently that made you think and Write about a show you recently binge watched. And truth is, I've been thinking a lot about what's being said by other people lately. I've also binge watched a lot of tv lately, and at the time I'm typing out this sentence, I'm still trying to decide which show, of all the shows that I've binge watched lately, that I want to write about. If I choose to write about that.
I'm doing a sort-of double dip this week: Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from a previous June and write! and that kind of ties in with Write a list of 5 things you do for FUN. Except I'm only listing ONE thing I do for fun, as, like I said, it ties in with my Throwback Thursday.
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.
Wow, can you believe it's June ALREADY? Half the year gone, ALREADY? Now, I know you're probably thinking "This has been a hell of a bad year, it needs to hurry up and be over NOW!" or something of the sort. And I hear you! This year was supposed to be MY year. I'm getting the weight off I've so desperately needed to lose, the one-year anniversary of my aunt's death has come and gone - meaning I'm closer to the finish line of getting out from under the house and the estate, and OMG, this was going to be such a good year for music! I had SO MANY concerts planned.
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.
Look at this; I'm jumping back in with both feet, and on a week with a pre-determined theme at Monday's Music Moves Me.
The theme for this week comes to us from Robin at Songbird's Crazy World: "In honor of Valentine's Day, we will have love songs. Songs about falling in love, songs about being in love, songs about missing the one you love, even songs about losing love."
wait...we are calling this new decade The Roaring Twenties, right? If so, I certainly approve. It's one of my favorite vintage eras for fashion, beauty, housewares, and architecture. It certainly ticks all the boxes, what with it's Dapper gentlemen (and high-stalin' gangsters!) in wingtip shoes, Flapper girls in their beaded dresses and turbans throwing back bathtub gin and dancing the night away, and ART DECO everything!
