Time just for Mama

(image above from somewhere on etsy, but darn it all to heck if I can't find it right now)

Getting up so early today (see earlier post) has afforded some positive things already. Like having plenty o' time to surf the net before my mama duties kick in for the day. In fact, according to my weekly check of all things new at iTunes, it is a very good week indeed -- new music from two ladies I love, Ingrid Michaelson and Kristin Chenoweth!

There are numerous reasons to love Kristin, numero uno being her role in Pushing Daisies, numero dos being her role a couple of years back in the made for TV movie version of The Music Man, and numero tres being fact that she is a favorite here in Wonderland. It doesn't hurt that her new CD is a Christmas CD, has a duet with John Pizzarelli, and that she covers one of my mom's favorite songs, "Come On Ring Those Bells", a song I found corny growing up, but might secretly enjoy now. Bring on the holiday music! I'll be downloading this CD today.

I love the early morning ... although it's tougher getting up early when it's still dark. Dawn is breaking around 3:30am here in the summer - so it's a tad easier to get up - but it's still dark at 6 here now .. not so easy to crawl out of bed - but like you said, it can be very rewarding for a mom to have some alone time :)!

I'm going to check out the songs you highlighted!

Bring on the Christmas music! Steven and I always start listening to Christmas music around the end of September or first of October. I'm glad to hear that there are other people out there who love it as much as we do. Enjoy!

I am not ashamed to say that I love Chistmas music and start it going right about now. Whats not to like? It's all happy and about happy things and who can't do with a little happy?

Early mornings are so quite and peaceful. I love them too. I just found your blog and love it.
