Music and a Treat

I wrote a post yesterday and then deleted it. If you happened to read it, then you probably know why I got rid of it. I couldn't stand to read it myself. Somedays the gloomies take over but they never stay long.

I'm listening to an artist who is new to me, Allison Moorer. I just discovered her after buying her latest CD, Crows. My fav song on it right now is "Should I Be Concerned." If you go to her myspace page you can hear all of the songs on this cd. I love the mellow softness of her voice. And the words have meaning to me. I tried to get the song to play on my blog but couldn't figure out how to do it, darn it.

New treat I discovered - Luna protein Chocolate Cherry Almond. De-licious. Tastes just like chocolate covered cherries (my weakness) and they have 12 grams of protein with 3 grams of fiber. Not the best for low carb (21g) but still better than a candy bar if you need a sweet fix.

I rode my bike today and my mind cleared of the negative nonsense that had crawled in and taken up space. All better now. I just have to keep repeating that to myself.


  1. It's okay to have the gloomies - it's a part of this whole deal. I am glad, however, that you are feeling better.

    I believe Allison Moorer is married to Steve Earle, one of my favorite singer/songwriters. And her sister is one helluva singer, too.

    So have you ever thought about escaping when you are being invaded? Say making a road trip to parts more north and central in your state? I know someone who lives very close to some very nice art museums who would enjoy entertaining out of town company - I'm just saying....make lemonade....

    Hope you have a happy Tuesday.....

  2. Glad to hear that you are doing better!! I always feel better when I go out in the fresh air and excercise too :)

  3. I love Luna bars -- they work pretty well to defeat the gloomies :-)

  4. I'm glad today's been better for you, Tena.
    I think it'd be great for you to visit a Roxie!

  5. I'm so happy you're feeling better. It's amazing what a nice bike ride will do! :)

    I tried those Luna protein bars last week, and YUM!

  6. There's just nothing like fresh air, sunshine and exercise!! Glad you're feeeling better. :)

  7. turned that frown upside down! :) me too. Need to start thinking more posative!!

  8. You can visit me, too!
    Bike or no bike.
