Anonymous presents full of love.

I am exhausted tonight. I have not slept well the last few days and it is catching up with me. I am so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open. I am going to end up crashing and sleeping for 14 hours or I will have a psychotic episode. It's a crap shoot as to which will happen first, but exciting either way! 

While I was sitting here, writing my blog for Music Monday the doorbell rang. It startled me a little, but I got up and walked to the door and opened it. (Cause that's what you do in case you didn't know)
When I opened it no one was there, which actually threw me off a bit because I am so tired it took me a few seconds to figure out what was going on. 
I could see a girl running in the opposite direction for my house, then I looked down. 

On my step I found this cute little box filled with cookies with a sweet note telling me I am thought of and loved. 
Sigh...Thank you! That was really wonderful. I have been feeling a little lonely the last few weeks, so this was well timed. 

For this Music Monday I decided to do something a little different. I wanted to explain a few things about how and where I find my music that I post on here to share with everyone. (I was asked a little while ago, and never did answer)

I love sharing music with people and I love when people share good songs they have heard with me. That is one of the ways I find new stuff. 
I also have the Shazam app on my iPhone and use it when I am in a store and a song I like the beat to is playing. I hit my Shazam button and I have another song to share. 

Another is every time I go to Starbucks I pick up one of the little cards that offers you a free song to down load from i tunes. 
I always take them because it's like opening a present, you never know if its going to be really fantastic like the new leather boots you have been admiring in the window or if it will stink like the itchy sweater that is too small and has a snowman on the front. 

Today I am sharing some of the songs I found from Starbucks cards, always worth grabbing FYI!! 

I am grateful the CFR is over. I love it so, but I am really tired. 

I am grateful for such a wonderful weekend with dear friends. 

I am grateful for fall break and getting to spend two more days with my kids before school resumes.

Thanks for sharing. I also LOVE the free songs from Starbucks. I have discovered some really great music from those free I-tunes downloads. I also love sharing music. It really is good for the soul.

I love the cookies idea. So sweet. :)
