Music Monday and Such

9 Jan

It’s Monday.  Who needs a song to get them moving today?  Well, Train (one of my favorite bands) has a new song coming out tomorrow, and it’s out on their site now, so check it out!

Train – Drive By

If you check out other “Music Monday” selections, you’ll find a bit of Train in there.  Josh called it once, when describing why our musical tastes are so different.  Josh loves a good beat.  The more bass the better in his world.  But I like good lyrics.  I do like a good tune, something to dance or jump around to, but I love good lyrics.  I like a song with a soul.  Train delivers that for me.


Meanwhile, in our world, the craziness of Christmas holidays are over.  The kids have all gone back to school, Josh has gone back to work, and I’m here, alone, in my house.  Just me, the puppy, and a huge mound of laundry to keep me company.

Zoey the Puppy has been keeping me busy all  morning – she tries gnawing on things like the puppy she is, I stop her.  She sneaks upstairs, I get her back downstairs.  She wants out, I let her out, then back in, then out, then in again.  It is a bit like having a toddler, except Zoey can’t scream “NOOOO!” at me and I can legally lock her in a cage.

The one thing I’m noticing about her is her eyes.  Because she’s a blue merle collie, she has one blue eye and one brown eye.  And I swear, those eyes tell different stories.

The brown eye is the happy-go-lucky good puppy eye.  The blue eye though shows her disdain for the rules, her intelligence mocking us.

The brown eye says “Oh, look at me! I’m a cute little puppy!  Pet me! Rub my tummy!”

Meanwhile, the blue eye is saying “That’s right, bend to my will slave.  I will own you!”

Or maybe I need to just interact with more humans today.

    I love the pictures you posted yesterday. Your puppy is adorable. We have an aussie. She’s the best dog we’ve ever had… they are a bit quirky, but really are great pets. I shared your blog with my fb friends… actually a fb friend is how I discovered your blog. We too have a little girl with special needs, only ours is adopted. We also have 3 other biological children… soon getting ready to adopt again. I’ll enjoy keeping up with you through my life that seems to run similar patterns to yours:)

    We have 2 border collies. We are their servants and they keep us in our place;-) They do this creepy stare and maintain eye contact with us until we feed them, pet them, go for a walk, give them water, etc. I tried to ignore our female once and she stared me down for 30 minutes. She’s more persistent than my kids.

    That’s funny… it’s “Musical Monday” in my son’s Kindergarten class. They all bring an instrument and infuse the beautiful chaos into their class.

    That Train song is surely Toe Tappin’. I especially like the lyrics playing on the video. Subtitles are my friend:)

    As per the dog… happy that you named its breed because I was thinkin’ – that is one cool/funky lookin’ dog.

    Smiles… happy day to ya.

    She’s beautiful! And I don’t have kids myself yet but I’m always amused by how much puppies are like toddlers… The midnight potty breaks, the energy, it can be a handful!

    So, what you’re saying is you like a little “Soul Train”. Beautiful pictures as always.

    She certainly looks cheaky, almost like a little wolf. Is it still cold over there here in Oz it’s too hot xxxx
