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.

Mom Spot: Living Green Tip

I have one word for today:

compost
Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time of the year. Countertop composting may be your best option if you live in  a small place. But believe me, you want to get this stuff out of the house as soon as possible. Seriously.
That's why what you really need to know about is what goes in there and where to put it. I've read books on the subject (yes, actual entire books) and here's what it boils down to: Get yourself a good collection bin for inside and a realistic spot to put it outside (I use an old plastic ice cream container by my sink and then a standard bin with lid in my garden.)Stick with vegetable and fruit debris primarily along with egg shells and coffee grounds.Although coffee grounds can go directly to the dirt, all else needs time to decompose. Give it no more than 3 days inside and then get it where it needs to go!So where should it go? In a bin, in a ditch, or on a pile. You choose. (If you live in an apartment, don't think this i…

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
