Monday’s post brought out a little bit of impromptu fiction…and I feared to post it for sounding sacriligious…or something. Not sure what my hesitation was.
Still–it’s TUESDAY–and I’ve been thinking about songs, and words, and lines….(and, before I forget, the new iTunes now lets you copy links to songs…and here is the free one this week: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/twinkling-lights-feat.-syd/id583601337 …which I actually really like).
Since December began, I could probably sum up most of my month’s activities in two words–baking and cleaning. Baking because, well, it’s Christmas!!!! And I did little baking during November (mainly because I was writing a NOVEL for NaNoWriMo)…and, as a good friend once said accurately, baking is my therapy. And cleaning because, well, my house really needed a good scrubbing (did you notice the mopping story yesterday?–well, that’s because cleaning has been on the brain and in my bones for the last several days) since I spent several hours of last month taking care of sick people and WRITING!!!!! Huzzah!!!! 🙂
So, when I clean, (and sometimes when I bake, too), I often turn on iTunes, or Spotify, or Pandora to enjoy some flavorful music (the real truth is so I can dance) and give me some motivation to keep moving. On my cleaning spree last week, I recalled some of my favorite one-liners from songs that I love. Here are a few I jotted down for fun:
“Who knows how long I’ve loved you?”
“I felt so symbolic yesterday.”
“Letters that you never meant to send get lost and thrown away.”
“Worlds without end couldn’t hold her.”
Are any of those familiar to you? Care to guess? I’ll post the answers in a few days. 🙂
And, who has been following the free music on iTunes? You can get free Christmas songs–a new one each Tuesday–if you care to head on over there (see the link above for the new one for this week)…or you could just enjoy Spotify‘s library and make your own Christmas music playlist…or you can add a holiday station on Pandora…or you could be like me and do all three. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it, too?!?!?!?! Certainly not my preschooler…he’s been asking for cake again…and we all know what that means, right? More baking. More baking=more cleaning. More cleaning=more music. December is looking promising already!
