The Sound of Music...And, Yes, I'm Taking Requests

Today I am at home. No work, no errands (yet), and nobody at home (not for long). I have to tell you what a lovely day it has been. My to-do list has been full of chores that I love. I have kept the laundry going, spent time in the sewing room and set my home to rights. Part of the reason for my productive and very happy day is the sound of music. It has played off and on all day....Vince Gill, Rascal Flatts, some gospel, Maroon 5 (yes, Maroon 5), Luther Vandross, Faith Hill and various other "country girls." I am definitely not a "music snob," but I have to say Vince and his country cronies are favorites.

Many other items have been crossed off the list. I made some calls and finalized a few business things, and then sat down to the computer. One thing I have wanted to do for a long time is to figure out how to download books from the library. Can one be any lazier? In my defense, the idea came from the hubby. I mentioned to him that I am going back to the library because I am so tired of buying books and then having to find their next home. I don't want to keep the books (we're talking mostly paper-backed here, not my craft books.....they are all keepers). Anyway, I also want to support the "simple living/spend less money plan." So, I got busy and discovered setting everything up to download the e-books is easy-peasy. After just a few minutes, I was reading!!

This will be a short post today...now Glen is home and I think if I'm extra sweet to him, he'll play taxi driver and take me on my errands. We won't, however, be going in this ride. This little number is Timothy's project car. One time when I wasn't sure what pictures I wanted to post, he got real excited and said, "put a picture of my Blazer on there." This one's for you, Honey.

Tim's regular ride is a sweet little black Sonoma truck that he inherited from his dad and proceeded to trick out. He lowered it (don't ask me), and then put a new sound system in to go with the custom interior lights. It looks like the Batmobile inside : )

Enjoy a peaceful moment...and listen to some good music.

My home is never empty,
Although I be alone
I hear the voices of angels
To God, their love intone!

Sounds like you've had a very productive day! I imagine you have everything squared away and in its place.

You sound a little like me. I HATE to drive, and so I put off errands until my Dearest can take me. I love it when he drives, :)
