The 6th Month

Tomorrow is the 1st of June, the 6th month of the year. Where has the time gone? This year seems to be slipping away too quickly.

I am ready though, for those warm Summer days and cooler nights, of milkshakes for dinner because it is too hot to cook, or just plain too damn hot to want to eat anything, of sunshine filled mornings and evenings spent going on walks.

I am ready for reading books and taking naps and laughing and cuddling in between. I am ready for my first s’more of the season and biting into corn on the cob, while butter runs down my chin. I am ready to dance to beach music surrounded by candlelight while the day slips into twilight.

Come Summer, I welcome you with open arms.

8 Years Ago Today…

8 years ago today, I walked down the aisle of the same church that my parents and my grandparents before them were married in and I met Mr. Michie at the end of it.

I am still just as in love with him as the day I married him, even more so, if that is possible? We have had our ups and downs as all marriages have and like all things they are usually from outside issues, not ones that stem from us. But, we are on the roller coaster of life and that to me is much better than the merry-go-round.

Through all of our 8 years, we have stayed true to who we are, we have stuck together, through thick and thin. For, it is us against the world, and isn’t that how love should be? We have climbed a lot of mountains to be together and it was worth everyone.

Happy Anniversary, Mr. Michie, I love you!

Good Morning Daisies

These daisies are one of the first things I see when I walk out of my house in the morning. They always greet me. They looked so pretty and summery in the sunshine this morning, I just had to snap a picture.

Have a lovely weekend…

Is It Here?

Shhh! Don’t say it too loud, but I think we might be getting our first real touch of Summer! Of course, this is England, so this might be all we get!

I won’t complain about the heat, because I am so happy that there is sunshine outside and along with that, comes everyone’s new attitudes. People are happier, they smile more, they will actually say, “Hello!” back to you, believe or not…

Sunshine makes this little island, sparkle!

Poor Moon

We are a Fleet Foxes household and so I was very excited to learn that a few of their band members, Christian Wargo and Casey Wescott, along with Ian & Peter Murray of The Christmas Cards, have formed Poor Moon.

It started out as a long distance project between the 4 of them, that has now blossomed into the album, Illusion.

I have had it for a little while and maybe it is the change of weather, or my mood, but I am listening to this a lot lately. In particular, one song I keep playing over and over is: People In Her Mind. The riff at the beginning of this song, is so deliciously reminiscent of some of my favorite music of the 70’s.

More Cowbell!!

What a week! I am so happy that it is Friday, this is a solid gold, gotta have more cowbell kind of Friday.

Don’t Fear the Reaper, is my favorite Blue Oyster Cult song. There is a memory there, it always makes me smile. It reminds me of growing up, discovering your parent’s “music” (not that my parent’s have that, they are always “up” on everything) and a certain road trip.

Thank goodness we have the weekend to just be, to give it more cowbell,all the cowbell we’ve got and prepare for the craziness that next week will bring.

In case, you have no idea what I am talking about:

Have a great weeeeekend!
