He’s a Super Freak

On 11, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

Matt and I are meeting soon. We normally fly, but this time we are driving and meeting in the middle.

I was a bit apprehensive. I get so sleepy when I drive. So, Matt used a recent purchase to blackmail me. My chair has been at his house since I bought it in ATL.

I Never Last Long

On 09, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

Watching Ken Burns Civil War and eating turnips for lunch. Started crying 30 seconds in video. Been listening to a 20-plus hour Civil War lecture on audiobook the last few weeks. In full obsession mode. Would love to talk to my Papa about it all. Guess we did plenty of that during the time we had, though.

The Celebrity Life

On 09, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

Blake Lively now, like Gwyn, has her own lifestyle site!

20140709-100404-36244860.jpg

Passing no judgement, but still can’t help but giggle when I read the site/star’s objective. I mean……say what? Haven’t we heard enough from Gwyneth’s curated (unattainable) life.

“The main element of it is it’s about storytelling, and it’s about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life and how to achieve that.”

So, on her site
she’s talking about things she owns that really we mortals can’t reasonably obtain unless we sell our cars.

Chubs The Deaf Bully

On 04, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

I have a huge crush.

On a dog. No, a real dog.

His name is Chubs. He’s a deaf Memphis bulldog. We first met over the web when his mom posted pics of him watching Action News 5 on tv. He loved the programming so much he’d jump at the tv (even knocked it over one time, oooops)

I follow him on Instagram ( @chubsthedeafbully )
His mom and I are Facebook friends now.
Long story short, Chubs was in my dreams last night. He was with his mom in a restaurant. I ran to him and smothered him with hugs. I was so happy. So strange. I need a dog of my own.

Handy Floral

On 01, Jul 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

These pouches are just stunning.
Make me feel a bit cooler just by looking. Can’t imagine holding. Won’t be because of the price tag, but don’t mind looking and smiling. 3 colors. My favorite is the one with heavy pinks.

Must love CATS

On 21, Jun 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

A store just for people who love cats.
I asked the Charlottesville, Virginia store owner what gave her the inspiration to open it and she said because she knew I was coming. What a delightfully strange and fantastic answer. It was pretty clear I was fascinated with her merchandise. Who knew there is that much cat stuff created?

I got a cat change purse (which I needed) and a dish towel (my addiction).

This is the face I found Matt showing when we walked out. I suppose Bridget did bite him in the face.

They are coming to Memphis :: Phantogram

On 19, Jun 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

I’m just a huge fan. Have been.
It’s good in a world where not enough music is amazing. Dark and electronic.
If I’m in Memphis I’m going. Who needs sleep? Phantogram at Minglewood!

Forced Stay-cation

On 12, Jun 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

Lost my power last week during a nasty storm.
A giant limb fell, knocking out power.
For the last week it’s been gradually coming back on.
Finally last night I got my fridge back!!
When the power went out it somehow did something strange and electrical to only one half of my house. Based on my description can’t you tell I’m not an electrician.
Anyhow, this week has been a test in patience with lots of fast food.

When Matt was here this weekend we did enjoy an emergency hotel stay. What are you going to do? Lounge!!

The Fado :: Fantastic Music Friday

On 06, Jun 2014 | No Comments | In Music | By Lindsey

fado

I’m sure she tells the story every time she sings.  It’s a beautiful one. Singing Fado with her late father when she was just five years old.  In Portugal we happened into a late night Fado dinner. We’d been told we needed to hear Fado while we were in the country, but I thought it would be too touristy. Maybe it was, but the songs were just beautiful.

It’s a type of traditional Portugease music that is moving. The performers sing in rich tones words that speak of loss, sadness, culture and family. It’s sad music.

I even bought a CD. That says something, though we were too happy to listen to it during the rest of the trip.

A little listen….

If only I could take home…

We’ve been so busy this week in Portugal. We are either driving, my head in maps, or looking around, not wanting to miss a thing. Today it’s nice to spend a quiet moment on our beautiful terrace in Tavira in South Portugal. It’s full of comfy chairs and succulents of all types. At roof height the Clay roof tiles are just as decorative as everything else we see. These are the things we can’t bring back home. Though, I’ll make sure the inspiration makes it back to Memphis.

Bussaco with the friars and Napoleon

On 26, May 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

20140526-130107-46867739.jpg

I’ve needed some inspiration.
A mix of history and beauty.
Camille booked us at the most amazing hotel in the middle of the Bucaco National Forest. Not only is the hotel full of treasures like old photos and amazing furniture from the mid-1800’s, but attached to the hotel is a monastery. In it are original religious paintings and figures. The garden dating back to 1886 took my breath away or maybe it was the winding nature trail, established by the friars, we took a bit ago? It’s amazing to think of the lives spent here in the middle of the woods. Apparently Napoleon’s men fought a battle here.
