Got Up This Morning


I bought a new black skirt this week. I put it on this morning and by the time I got downstairs, discovered that it is actually a magnet for cat hair. Perhaps I can give up the vacuum cleaner and just wave the skirt through each room. This is not the first time this has happened. I wish there was a way to determine beforehand whether or not material will do that.

I looked at the line-up this morning for the annual Stanfest or the Stan Rogers Folk festival held each July in Canso, Nova Scotia. I went to the festival faithfully for several years from the first one but haven't been there since 2003 because of work responsibility. I miss it so much and after seeing the line-up I ache to return.

You know how sometimes a song gets stuck in your head. I sat here last night listening to some music before I went to bed. This song, Got Up This Morning by Sage France and Jolie Holland was on the playlist I clicked on. When I woke in the night, my brain was singing it and when I got out of bed this morning there it was again. Playing it again will have it stuck there for the rest of the day or allow me to let it go. We'll see.

A playlist I've been working on this week is called Smokin' Tunes. It is 5 hours, 58 minutes, 57 seconds - pretty close to 6 hours. Now to pare it down to 80 minutes for a fabulous cd.... Any excuse to play Brandi Carlile, here's Wasted from those 6 hours and Hypnotized by Ani DeFranco, someone else it brings me pleasure to play.

Are you sure the cat hair's just not more visible against the black material? I go through life assuming everything I own is covered in cat hair, but it's invisible....

No, Ralph, some clothes don't attract it at all, like denim. Other materials, like brushed cottons, grab it and won't let go.

Outstanding music pics today, Cuidado. I especially enjoyed the Ani DiFranco!

Isn't Ani the greatest, Nan? I discovered Brandi only a couple of years ago and have become a huge fan.
