Things I think you’d enjoy

This past weekend, as I often do, instead of doing what I was supposed to do…writing, dishes, laundry…I was browsing online. This whole webbernet is so fascinating, isn’t it?

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I was obsessed with OneRepublic’s Counting Stars? Now I have a new song obsession. I just know you’re going to love it, too! This duo is named Acoustic Truth, and they have a new video for their song Time. I may be a little biased since I have known the older couple in the video for years. They are members of my church. Don’t they look like pros?

(Also watch the video here.)

When I finally did get around to washing some dishes, I listened to Confessions of a Farmwife: Vol. 1. This podcast was these farmwives’ first one, but it didn’t sound like it! I felt like I was sitting at the kitchen table with them. I met Holly on my farm tours for the Illinois Farm Bureau, and this podcast makes me want to go live out in the country again.

Do you watch Modern Family? Ed and I have just started watching it this season, and I have my DVR set for tomorrow! My Spin Cycle buddy, Gretchen, will be making an appearance! Find out more details on her blog, Second Blooming.

What have you been listening to/watching/reading this week?


My First Topic for Spin Cycle!

While Gretchen is enjoying herself at the Emmys, I’m at home on my couch blogging while Ed is in charge of the remote. Yes, we’re watching the Bears game and the Emmys at the same time. Plus, I need to write a blog post to tell you what this week’s Spin Cycle prompt is!

Lately I’ve been obsessed. “Counting Stars” by OneRepublic is a song I’ve been listening to over and over, thinking about the lyrics and wondering what they mean. One line in particular made me think.

“Everything that kills me makes me feel alive.”

Right after I thought of this prompt idea, one of my Facebook friends wrote the exact same line as her status. Turns out she’s obsessed with this song too!

What does this line mean to you?

Write your post any day this week and add your link. Gretchen and I will have our Spins up on Friday; be sure to come back and read what other people think about “Everything that kills me makes me feel alive.”
