One or Two

Continuing on with this February Album Writing Month theme…

There was a challenge posted to write a song using basically one chord for a minimum of one minute in the song.
I played a lot of “G” but other than that, I’m not sure what all happened in there
So here it is, how it is, and whatever I’m playing.

Do you like hats?

I’m on a roll right now.
Probably because I’ve hit the pause button on customs
And I’m attempting to use up all the fabulous yarn that I’ve already got on hand!

Also, this pinkish color has always confused me. Is it salmon? Coral? Rose? Faded red? I am calling it octopus because I really don’t know, and octopi can be different shades of pink and yellow and whatever, right?

I’m SO THANKFUL that I have found my little spot with crocheting these beanies.
I don’t get tired of making hats,
I actually get excited to start a new color with each one,
And people still seem to like wearing them which warms my heart
And makes me smile.

I am excited for new things with spring around the corner too,
It always gives me an invigorating feeling
And inspires me with the opportunities that come along with
Actually leaving my cozy den and getting out and experiencing things again.

So keep on adventuring, people!
There are no limits to the things we are capable of discovering –
In nature, or or about ourselves –
And life is short, so make the most of it!

Without You – Original Song

By yours truly.
I wrote this almost ten years ago, but I used to play it at shows and people seemed to like it and be able to relate to it.
It’s been one of my favorites to sing & play (back in the day when I actually did solo shows 🙂  )
Now it’s on the inter-web!
Hope you like!

Vio-lin-lin-lin

Sometimes I talk about things.
Lately, for the past year or so maybe, I’ve been talking about wanting to play violin.
I like to dabble with instruments, you know.
So this really nice guy at church offered me a violin that he’d won on eBay in a lot with other instruments.
Of COURSE I said yes.
Today I bought some rosin for the strings, and now I can play it!
So today I played violin,
And I recorded this little ditty.
Please don’t judge too harshly,
It’s my first day!

Watson, my dear Watson.

So this time around,
It was really difficult,
And I’m not sure why.
Still, something is not quite right.
I mean,
It seems like she’s got a pretty uncomplicated face.
Perhaps because it’s so darn perfect.
She’s also pretty much the only girl that can pull off this haircut
And still look beautiful,
So don’t go trying it just because she got away with it.
You will most likely be disappointed.

Also, if you like music,
Here is a shameless plug for myself.
I recorded this song today in my basement.
