Music of my Heart #SecretSubjectSwap February 2016

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 14 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 



My “Secret Subject” is: Everyone has a favorite song.  Except...
It was submitted by:My Brain on Kids

Music is such an amazing part of my life. Genuinely a favorite thing for me. When I was younger, I often said that I could NEVER live without music. Now, it more like I could NEVER live with my child. I'd hate to live without music, but I could survive.  
So, as for having a favorite song, I'd say I'm definitely an exception. Around the time I was twenty years old, I developed a Top Ten list. It has changed over the years, but for the most part, it's my go to list. I decided some time ago, when asked my favorite song, to give my number one on the list, as the answer. It has never changed. Others have, but number one hasn't. 
This list was originally created, when my close friend as me... If you had to give up all music, except for ten songs, and could only listen to those songs for eternity, which ten songs do I choose. It took me over a week to compile a list, but I managed. Spots nine and ten have changed over the years. As new songs are released, but for the most part, the list has remained fairly constant. 
So, here's my list... 
1. Waiting in Vain by Bob Marley. 
2. Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain by Willie Nelson. 
3. Take Time to Know Her by Percy Sledge. 
4. What's Love Got to Do with It by Tina Turner. 
5. Have You Ever Seen The Rain by Creedence Clearwater Revival. 
6.  The One I Gave My Heart To by Aaliyah. 
7. Silver Threads and Golden Needles by Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, and Loretta Lynn. 
8. Hello Darlin' by Conway Twitty. 
9. Angels by The xx. 
10. Someone Like You by Adele. 
Over the years, other artists (Pop Evil, Common, Alicia Keys, AzYet, Shinedown, Mackelmore, Usher, Bruno Mars, etc etc) have made the list, but the bottom seems to be a revolving door. 
Some songs I feel need to be mentioned, since they've been on the list multiple times are... 
1. Jolene by Dolly Parton. 
2. Easy (Like Sunday Morning) by Faith No More. 
3. Hard to Say I'm Sorry by AzYet. 
4. Ready for Love by India.Arie.
5. I Can't Stop Loving You by Kem.
What about you?! Do you have a favorite song? Is it too hard to pick just one? Do you have a list?

  1. It's interesting how much you learn about people through their favorite songs. Some of the songs you picked don't surprise me at all, others reveal something new.

  3. I didn't know Faith No More did a cover of Easy. I just listened to it... not all that impressed with the rendition, but I do like the song - the video is just weird.

    My number one is Black by Pearl Jam. Hands down. Gives me goosebumps and makes me cry.

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!


Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.



1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.

New Year, Same Me. #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to January's Blog with Friends post! I once again decided to join in, and give it my best shot. How does it work? A group of bloggers select a topic, and create a blog post based on that topic, and then join their posts together in a round-up. This month, we are all creating posts based on the topic of resolutions. The posts can include any number of things, from crafts and recipes, to informative writing, to fictional writing, and anything in between.



How do you feel about resolutions? Do you make them? Do you keep them? Do you skip them? I tend to make some, and I tend to do a decent job at keeping some of them. I tend to take a more relaxed view on them, and shoot more for goals than resolutions. I also do not let myself stress over them. I feel if it becomes stressful, that defeats the purpose.

Well, for 2018, I have decided to take them a bit more seriously. I have put some thought into it, and come up with some things I really want to accomplish, improve, or change i…
