playlist 3 …

It’s that time again. A short list, but still a list. I’ve searched the vault high and low and come up with this eclectic mix.

As always, it’s laced with a few of my favorites. Funky Days are Back Again always makes me want to dance. Now that I think about it, it’s probably best suited for dancing in the car. And yes, I do that. Last of Days is light, best categorized in my own twisted day as having a late spring/early summer feel. Larry Placek and the Tune Masters bring us Love Me Forever, which immediately makes me think of my well-rooted and quite wacky in-laws. I can picture my husband and both of his parents singing this goofy tune. Beth Orton is a classic, and she has a good showing in my library. Her voice and music feel like autumn. With that, I’ll tell you that the playlist is all about … well, why don’t I let you figure it out for yourself! 🙂

I don’t know why I’m surprised anymore. This stuff happens so often, and still, it amazes me.

It’s a rainy Friday night in June. We’re sitting on the couch watching a movie; Justin on the right side, me on the left, and the middle cushion is open. Cody is in his usual spot – on the granite floor by the back door. (He spends a lot of time here – he’s extremely furry, it’s the middle of summer, and the granite is nice and cold. Good match, huh?)

So we’re all settled and about halfway through the movie. Cody gets up and nudges Justin, which is what he normally does when he has to go out. We pause the movie, and Justin gets up to let Cody out. As Justin walks to the back door, Cody makes his move … and steals Justin’s seat on the couch! In his defense, that cushion IS normally his. But seriously! He sits there with his head over the arm of the couch, and refuses to make eye contact with either of us.

Needless to say, at this point, all we can do is laugh. These little things are so funny! The attitude is at times just too much to bear!
