Ka-pow!

We punched through our first week of school and new schedule stuff!
And now we are all very tired.
Emma pretty much fell asleep in the car at 8:15 this evening, Chris is snoring in his recliner and I am struggling to hold my head up long enough to post something here.
Sleeping in will definitely happen tomorrow.

So, I've got buckets of new music, thanks to a birthday iTunes card. That's always an energizing thing. I spend weeks and weeks picking and choosing and narrowing it down and asking for suggestions (which rather un-narrows the list) and then I finally just spend it all in one fell swoop.
Then I get to listen to it all.
Inevitably, the cream rises to the top within one or two listens. There will be a handful of songs, and sometimes just one, that were worth the whole purchase - the one or two that will get stuck in my head.
I thought I'd share one with you, but I can't find a decent video because this dude is pretty much unheard-of as far as I can tell. There's a music blog that I like to check out now and again - that's where I heard of him. So, if you want to have a little listen, click on that there link and scroll down (because I am so not gonna try and embed some kind of player in my blog while I'm this sleepy). You're looking for a track by The Wheel, the song is Just For Me (But I Thought Of You).
It's just dreamy and singable (who doesn't love to sing "doo doo doos?") and there's an upright bass and marimba and drum brushes...and...and...all sorts of good stuff. Sigh. It helped me stay mellow today.
Hopefully, I can capitalize on that and get right to sleep now, before my head hits the keyboard anzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

If that time stamp is right you just posted this. I enjoyed it as always. I haven't checked the links yet because I'm sitting in the living room watching a football game with Kris. I just wanted to check in.

I hope you have a restful weekend. Enjoy the music. The kind you listen to and the kind you make yourself.

Wow! I love the Wheel. Sounds like the perfect music for a sundress and Marilyn Monroe heels, a mid-day glass of vino, and a fresh warm rose to tickle your nose with while you listen.

Yeah, those first few weeks of school are rough. It always makes homeschool seem like an option :) It also makes me really miss summer.

Get some rest- hope you have a great weekend.

Mary - the timestamp probably was right. I wonder, though, which version you saw because I edited it re-posted at least five times :) Too many type-os!

Mom - let's do that. We'll listen to the song and do just what you said. Okay?

Mindy - you would definitely like some of his other songs too, but none of them sound like that one. It's very raw and there's one very disconcerting track. We'll talk.

Amy - ditto :)
