I’m so looking forward to my friend April visiting this weekend. We met in January 2000 and we’ve been friends ever since. We lived together for two years of college and have grown to enjoy each other more since we graduated. She lives a few hours away but we’ve made time for each other about twice a year we visit each other over the last ten years. We’re always up to some kind of shenanigans…. April number 1 and April number 2.
I am number 2 since I showed up second to RU. We were part of a group of ladies that were referred to as the Peanut Gang and we were a great support system for each other along the way and even today. Some of us are closer and some have grown apart, but they are all a blessing in my life. April number1- aka Chipmunk- Me – aka Lolli. Michelle- Pnut. Jessica- Heinz. Nicole- Toadie. Jamie- Dew- Da… Dew- Little… crap I don’t remember- Tonya aka Puffy-T and T-Dog. It was silly innocence and precious to my heart.
This list of songs are just ones I particularly enjoyed this week. Enjoy!
John Prine and Iris DeMent- In spite of ourselves
Scott Avett— “trying” to sing “Just a Closer Walk with Thee”… this sums up parenting.
Matt Costa- Astair
Brett Dennen- Sydney
Timmy Curran- Blue Eyes
Band Of Horses- The General Specific
