Littleton Historical Museum: Live Music!

For all my tweets, (or twits, or twitterers... whatever) you may remember my sharing the news of live music at Littleton Historical Museum last week. The band was a fabulous Steel Drum ensemble with a wonderful female vocalist who brought not only a cover of an old Police song, but did some classic tunes made famous by The Little Mermaid movie. Needless to say, young and old were pleased with the performance.


Bring your blankets and lawn chairs, dinner and drinks, and get there early for a spot to the front lawn of the museum every Wednesday through July. Shows start at 7pm and the word is out! Don't just arrive early for a spot to sit, but to find a parking spot. As a courtesy, they ask you not to park in the library parking lot across the street.

Our impression was that this is definitely an event for all ages. Elderly couples made an impromptu dance floor, kids rolled around in the grass, babies slept in strollers, and friends gathered around extravagant dinner spreads (think gourmet pizza and a bottle of wine). I didn't recognize the names of any of the artists performing, and honestly any night when the weather is nice will be beautiful for sitting out in this lovely neighborhood. Here's a list of the performers:

June 30: Owen Kortz Trio
July 7 Willson and McKee
July 14: Mile High Banjo Society
July 21: Joni Janek & Centerpiece Jazz
July 28 Dakota Blonde

And mark your calendars for the Museum's 40th Anniversary on August 18. Details of the concert and events will be announced in the weeks ahead.

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
