Happy Turkey Day!

Today was a good day. I wrote a little, cooked a little, cleaned a little. I watched a coyote race across the field. A pair of blue jays have set up house in our trees for the winter. We enjoyed a gorgeous seventy-degree day outside with the kiddos, riding bikes and playing badminton. Our fridge is brimming with too much food. Loved ones all around. I have so much gratitude in my heart.

I could go on, but I need to figure out how to replicate this repulsive, yet strangely appealing turkey.

 Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!

On the Trail of the Perfect Post-Pumpkin Pie Playlist

As I hit the trail today, in the effort to run off the obnoxious amount of calories that went down the hatch on Thanksgiving, I realized I’m a titch bored with my current playlist. These tunes still do the trick, but there’s nothing like new music to fuel the fire, eh?

So, I thought it might be fun to have a playlist swap. I wanted to get all fancy, so that you could click on the song and listen to it, but I didn’t have the patience or the mental bandwidth to figure that out. . .

In no particular order, here are some of my faves for running. Or vacuuming the house with extra fervor:

  • Little Lion Man – Mumford and Sons
  • American Girl – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
  • Seven Bridges Road – Eagles
  • Bohemian Like You – Dandy Warhols
  • Goody Two Shoes – Adam Ant
  • No Silver – Chris Bathgate
  • Safety Dance – Men without Hats
  • Zombie – The Cranberries
  • Desire – U2
  • Crazy – Seal

What songs put you in the mood to shake your tail feathers?
