Music Fridays: Ready for a change

How’s your week been? I’m going to confess that it’s been a weirdly emotional one for me, and I can’t say with certainty that I understand why. It started out pretty good: Valentine’s flowers from S to start the weekend and then more roses from my son (along with his company) on Sunday made me…

Music Fridays: Put Your Records On

I’m late to this party, but I’ve been tidying up and editing my home after watching every episode of Netflix’s show “Get Organized with The Home Edit,” “Tidying up with Marie Kondo” and “Sparking Joy.” So after cleaning out closets and the pantry and finding more than I expected to donate or trash, I then…
