Sounds of Saturday

On this Saturday as many are gathering to celebrate a holiday that is meant to be full of hope, I could not think of a more appropriate song to share with you than this amazing collaboration between Sheryl Crow and the late, iconic Johnny Cash:   REDEMPTION DAY

Crow says about the duo, “I think he would’ve loved it. I think people have forgotten what an outspoken American he was,” she says, noting his activism around issues like the Vietnam War, Native American rights, and prison reform. “I think he would be having none of this right now. I think he would be aghast. This is not the America that I think he would feel proud of. He was so outspoken and so courageous about what he believed in.”   

I hope you enjoy this song. What are you listening to this weekend? Sounds of nature? Kids hunting eggs? Or your favorite music? I’d love to know! Have a beautiful weekend!

Sounds of Saturday

Saturdays here in Indiana often revolve around reading and nature, reading and music, reading and rehabilitating our Victorian home, reading in the park, reading about the history of our state or a famous person from Indiana. Or just music. Generally there always are sounds that accompany what we are doing despite people often saying “it’s so quiet and relaxing in your home without a television.” Yes, it is, except there are sounds all around us. I thought I would share some of those sounds with you and I would love it if you would share some of yours with me – from nature to your family to your favorite music. What does your Saturday sound like?

This is our favorite park in Indiana, Spring Mill Creek. I love to visit this time of year when the birds are nesting and the creek is full, but not yet flooding, which it will be soon. Click the photo below to hear the wonderful, relaxing sounds… Happy Saturday!

National Pet Day in the US

I spend my day surrounded by furbabies. If I’m reading or writing reviews, then you can count on one or all of these guys being by my side or, more likely on top of me. I thought I would share them with you today in honor of National Pet Day.

The orange, black and white cats are brothers from the same litter. They are 16 years old. The ginger one lives with my daughter. I promise I’m not quite the crazy cat lady but I have been in the past. Sam, the grey cat, is our baby. Humphrey, the Jack Russell, is the boss of them all, and of me. Thank you for letting me share. I’d love to see your furbabies!
