I don't think I can ever remember a time of getting so much rain.


 And why don't I have a tin roof?
Because that would be perfect. 


Instead, I just have weather that makes me want to sleep all day, chills my fingers when I try to take pictures of raindrops on leaves... and a backyard full of wet, musty smelling leaves needing raking.

But... it also makes me search for great rainy day music too.

This weeks theme:  Freebie


I discovered this song - I can't remember how, but it is one of my go to mellow songs. I LOVE the guitar in it so frickin much.    Jon Gomm uses the acoustic guitar to create all the bass lines, drum sounds, etc.   Amazing.

Find Jon on Facebook.




I am pretty much always in the mood for some Irma Thomas, but this one is perfect for today.



Truly I love the entire soundtrack to the movie, "Sunshine"  -  it is one of my favourite movies after all.    And yes - this means gratuitous use of Chris Evans gif ...... and shut up, I can stop whenever I want.

damn sir - your eyelashes!
But seriously tho - THIS SONG.   Brilliant score by John Murphy.  



If you have never seen the movie, definitely worth checking out.

the movie summed up in one gif

Hope you all have some good tunes and a warm place to be cozy this Monday.

Fall is so beautiful in Canada.

I mean, you've seen my pics lately right?


 Yep, gorgeous.   So much beautiful leaves.   On trees.

But, you know they don't stay there, right?
Nope.  They Fall.
Now, if you live in this stunning country farm setting like my aunt and uncle:  no worries!

If you live in suburban neighbourhood like me:


 That's a big carpet of beautiful fallen maple leafs.

Now some fallen maple leafs, I rather enjoy:

sorry - not sorry

But those ones in my backyard are WORK.
Anyone up for a raking party?


Feeling Beachie

This week’s co-host is Elizabeth from Silvers Reviews- she came up with all the statements.

The statements:


1.  What would be your perfect date night ?

You know I love the movies, so that is always a good date.   BUT - it's hockey season now and I would love to just go to a game with Left Brain and sit with a cold beer and cheer on our team! 
We also have a new football team in our area, The Ottawa Redblacks, and it would a real thrill to go see a game at the new stadium. 

2.  Certainly a dry sunny day will  be much easier to rake up all the fallen maple leafs than a cold, rainy one.

Oh yes, bring your wellies to the raking party!

3.  A real gentleman is worth more  than  his weight in gold.

This is important men.
I cannot stress this enough.
Here's your handy pocket guide:


4.  Joining a  Zumba class  makes me feel completely like an uncoordinated, but somehow still kinda sexy, giant dork. 
But I love it and can't get enough of the Zumba!

Awkward male intruder is me.


How I think I look:


How I really look:


If you think that's hilarious, you should see me dance when I rake leaves.
