Last Friday morning, I picked up this little guy from a church friend’s home. If you read her blog, you will see that they were just ready to have a dog-free home. We weren’t really looking for a dog, but Mark and I both thought the same thing when we saw his cute little face on our friend’s blog. So we decided adding Simon to our family was a good move. After 4 days, we still feel that way. He is just the right size, about 30 pounds, he’s well-behaved, and he is friendly. We are enjoying him and look forward to having him around for a long time. The kids are enjoying him, too.
As far as Tuesday Tunes go, I haven’t been listening to much adult music lately. Veggie Tunes 1 & 2 are what Charis requests most in the van. We occasionally get a dose of other children’s favorites like the “Hokey Pokey” and “A Tisket, A Tasket.”
Seriously though, I have been listening to old Rich Mullens Cds. I just love the song “Creed” on his Songs cd. This is nothing new, since Rich Mullens is no longer around to record anything new, but I just love the folk style of his music. I guess I would call it pensive.
The other cd I have been pulling out lately is Michael Card’s Starkindler. I love the old hymns set in new arrangements.
These cds are like the music I enjoyed 15 and 20 years ago. I am open to checking out new stuff, but I guess sometimes you just want to listen to something familiar that makes you feel comfortable and safe.
