Instead of my usual listening to knitting and quilting podcasts, I've had to load the iPod with other things that will provide a wee bit motivation to keep walking. Not that I do not love you Kelley and Brenda, Alex and Annie, Nicole and Jenny, Carrie and Kathy and the others that come and go---- I do love to listen! I have no doubt that I will get back to the routine of walking my very snappy 3 to 4 miles with Kathy Smith barking in my ears and the craftypods on the way back. Just not now. You see, when I finish the 'oooomph' portion of my walk I have worked myself about 2 miles from home. I may have a somewhat more leisurely stroll home, but there are still many steps on the pavement to get through. When you are already tired because you've not kept up the pace over the winter it does require more motivation!
My playlist is eclectic, maybe even a bit odd in spots but it makes me get home with less fuss:
- It's Good to Be Us- Bucky Covington
- Before He Cheats- Carrie Underwood
- Home- Daughtry
- Drinking Me Lonely- Chris Young
- Billie Jean- David Cook
- Day Tripper-David Cook
- I Can't Do That Anymore- Faith Hill
- Amarillo Sky- Jason Aldean
- Your Man- Josh Turner
- Six Days on the Road- Junior Brown
- Miss Independent- Kelly Clarkson
- Walking in Memphis- Lonestar
- Go Now- Moody Blues
- On My Own- Reba McIntyre, Martina McBride & Trisha Yearwood
- Stay- Sugarland
- Something More- Sugarland
- Someday Soon- Suzy Bogguss
- Johnny Cash- Jason Aldean
See what I mean? Hot. Little. DooDoo. Now he might look like Dwight Yokum without that hat, who's to know?
- Folsom Prison Blues- Johnny Cash
- Jackson- Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash
And because the legs are tired and a final push for home is necessary music from my favorite musical of all time---- Miss Saigon! I saw it in London at the Drury and saw it again here in the states.
- Her Or Me
- I Still Believe
And I'm home. Time to shower and put on my face and toss on some clothes and dash out the door to go to the studio to perform the tasks directly associated with wrangling brides.
Have I mentioned that my legs are killing me?
I have to close with this. Really, I couldn't help it. It is (get your mind out of the gutter) a banana cozy. Really. No April Fool's here! I personally think she should have crocheted that baby in like, RED or something. Might have helped, but that is just my personal opinion and I could well be wrong. It is the very creative brainchild of Kristen TenDyke. Should you be motivated to crochet other fruit cozy's she can also help you out.
Me? I can't manage to get a silly pair of 2 at a Time Socks knit in any manner of time!
