Yesterday was all about the color purple. I was painting the Smart & Social office. Two walls are now the color of royalty and the back cinder block wall has cartoon type depiction of purple tulips. I still need to hang a mirror to break up the large wall of purple and add in some green stems to my tulips, but here it is so far:
After prepping the floor and pouring the paint into the tray, I turned on my music. Music tends to make any project easier to complete. As I painted and listened, I started thinking about the strangeness in the diversity of the music that I had on my playlist: Barton Hollow, Miguel, The Head and the Heart, Pink, Billy Joel (love the Piano Man), G. Love, Blue October, Foster the People... all those collective sounds made hours of painting go by very quickly.
I was telling a friend about another playlist that I turn on when it's "that time." I pull out the cookie dough, the red wine, and my playlist made up mostly of the iMix, Soccer Mom Chillout (mellow tunes from David Gray, Amy Manne, Lauryn Hill, Nora Jones, and others). Then there's the playlist I turn on to clean the house on Saturday mornings. It's actually a soundtrack, but whatever... Moulin Rouge. Dusting is so much more fun to a little gitchy gitchy ya ya dada.
I started to get curious about what other people have on their playlists, so just for fun... and because I love you for stopping by to read my blog... I'm going to give away a $15 iTunes card! All you have to do is share a playlist in the comments and I'll randomly choose a winner this Friday. (By randomly, I mean I'll make my kids pick a number between one and the number of final total of comments.)
Have a great Monday!
