Mood Music

I am one of those people that would much rather listen to an album than watch a movie or television show. Music transforms my moods. My mood shapes what music is played. It is a magical, wonderful thing–music.

When I say music, what pops into your head?

I use to listen to music on Pandora religiously, before their upgrades and ads. I still occasionally listen to my custom station, tLa’s mix, but not nearly as often as I log in to my iHeartRadio app. I have a Kindle Fire and when I am reading I like to listen to music in the background.

Where/how do you listen to music?

At night as I am falling asleep I listen to acoustic songs or ambient music (like rainymood). Right now my mood has been bouncing between 90’s music and the newest Modest Mouse album, Strangers to Ourselves. 

Tonight I am finishing a book for book club (because I am so behind) while listening to either a Blur or Modest Mouse playlist on youtube (another great place to listen to music).

Who is on your playlist?

Tomorrow I will_____

I will make a to-do list and get things done. I get behind staying organized when life gets busy, so tomorrow is my catch up day to get back on schedule.

The week is almost over and so is January. I cannot believe that the first month is nearly gone. “Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.” (Allen Saunders)

Twenty-eight days into 2015 and it feels okay. I feel like I have kept on task, for the most part, and stuck to my resolutions. I do wish I had more reading accomplished but I am not rushing myself through my Goodreads challenge; it states that I am still currently on track which is good enough for me. I have changed a few goals and added others to balance the tasks I have dropped but in my mind it’s all “even-steven”.

Tomorrow I have the house to myself in the morning. This means I will get to listen to some 90’s music while I tidy up the living quarters. Tomorrow is also laundry day, one of my least favorite days. If I could buy new clothes and just throw out my used ones I would. That is how much I like doing laundry. My head would explode if I ever tried that tactic; I hate wasting anything.

Tonight I’m going to listen to my 90’s music radio station to prepare my mood for tomorrow.

Do you have a genre of music or particular artist/band that puts you in a good mood?

Sunday Funday?

The best part of today was the weather. There is a light rain with little wind and it is warmer than it has been. Above freezing is always a pleasant surprise in January. The only down side to this weather, and winter in general, is the activities are restricted to indoors.

Today being indoors is ideal for the plans I have made. Rainy days are perfect for reading. I’m catching up on my TBR pile and making some progress on my reading challenge. I’ve found a few books I’d like to read this year and I’m getting my letters knocked out (I’m reading books A-Z, a letter for the title or author). Next on my list, after I finish Austen, is this classic:


What are your favorite activities for rainy days?
