Dog Days

The dog days of summer are upon us.  Just a few more precious weeks to enjoy before we dive into the chaos of fall.  Here's what I have on my "to-do" list for the month of August:

~ Get a hair cut.
~ Re-read and old book.
~ Have a lemonade stand with my girls.
~ Freshen up my wardrobe.
~ Take a week off from...something.
~ Float in an innertube.
~ Wake up early and watch the sunrise.
~ Catch fireflies.
~ Pick tomatoes.
~ Sit back, put my feet up and listen to some good music.

Below are my music picks for this month.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Float on!

Jukebox Dream - The Rebel Light
 *Picture yourself on the beach in California as you let this one sink in.


Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes - Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes

*Give yourself time to play this one through from start to finish so can truly appreciate the story.


  1. They sounds like some great goals.
    I esp like "float in an inner tube" that one sounds delightful.
    I'm really liking the rebel light song, it's very retro \ beach boys like.

  2. i just found your blog this morning. i love music and running also. and the fact that you have ESMZ as your album of the month has totally roped me in! i can't wait to read on.

  3. Fantastic. So glad you found it. Pls keep sharing your favorites. I am always seeking out new and different music for both running and listening. And, yes, I love Edward Sharpe. Can't stop listening to this new album. I get an extra skip in my step when "In the Lion" comes on. So damn good.
