Smells like summer time!!!

 I don't know about your neck of the woods, but here in Washtenaw County for the past week or so it's been dreary and cold.  Usually this time of year it's warm and sunny-ish (It's Michigan, I can't say "sunny" with confidence).  I've been missing our usual rays and anticipating summer.

I went to the store recently and smelled a candle that gave me a mental picture of being on the beach :) ahhhh :)  It's called  Sun & Sand and it makes me so happy on these rainy days.  I also stopped by Michael's crafts and picked up a candle Ocean Breeze on sale.  The other day I stopped into TJ Maxx and saw that they had a fancy selection of candles for discounted prices.  I didn't pick one up there, but I saw that they had seasonal scents too and might be a clever place to look too.  Happy scent searching :)

:) :( :/ :S Music for whatever mood you're in

"behind every song there's always an emotion. we don't know why but maybe that's why we love music.
so we've created a way to suggest songs that follow your feelings: stereomood is the emotional internet radio, providing music that best suits your mood and your activities.
how do i feel? what am i doing now?" (From their website-main page)

How do you use this very clever internet radio?  Click this post's title above (open in new tab b/c it will take you to the site) and choose how you're feeling/what's going on.  They have categories like "happy" (of course, right?!), "melancholy", "homework", "dressing up", "epic", "chill", "snuggle", etc.  I'm pretty sure that you're find a few that match your current mood.  I'm listening to their mood category called "sunday morning" right now-no religious stuff, just stuff that, well, fits a Sunday morning of slacking ;)

This is good music too-not just popular car radio stuff.  I'm hearing songs that I never had before and liking them!  And with this program you can skip songs AND repeat the ones that you like; haven't seen any ad's on here yet either!
