Play Mode: Random

I just decided to update my iPod with some new music. I am a big fan of iTunes, but can get sucked in for hours at a time, so I try not to get on very often.

As I was listening through my new set of tunes, I realized that my favorite play mode is random. Not only the play mode, but the variety of music: you'll find Frank Sinatra, John Mayer, Flogging Molly, and Kings of Leon all on my playlist! Sure, I'll always skip over a song if it's not what I am in the mood for, but I just can't resist the not knowing which song is coming next. And THAT got me wondering... what does that say about me?

There are times when I like to know what is coming next, but spur-of-the-moment suites me just fine. I love spontaneity in part because it forces you out of your comfort zone. And maybe I wouldn't do that on my own.

As a mom, my life is very much scheduled. If you're a mom, you know what I mean. Kids need to be fed at a certain time or be to school at a specific hour. They need to have a bed time, a reading time, scheduled play dates or practices. If you are a mom who works outside of the home, your own life has it's rhythm because you have to "clock in and clock out."

So maybe that's my problem. Life seems so scheduled that I'll take a little bit of randomness wherever I can take it.

So, what is your play mode?

  1. I love that you're random. :) I am not! In fact, I tend to pick a favorite song, maybe a few favorite songs, and repeat, repeat, repeat! I like to know what is coming next, every time. Maybe that's because life is so busy and I rarely know what is coming next. I like the music control.

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you. 16  Preserve me, O God, for in you I  take refuge. 2  I say to the  Lord , “You are my Lord;      I have no good apart from you.” 3  As for  the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,      in whom is all my delight. 4  The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;      their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out      or  take their names on my lips. 5  The  Lord  is  my chosen portion and my  cup;      you hold my  lot. 6  The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7  I bless the  Lord  who  gives me counsel;      in  the night also my  heart instructs me. 8  I have  set the  Lord  always before me;      because he is at my  right hand, I shall not be  shaken. 9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my  whole being rejoices;      my
