Two kids down & Momma needs to run

Today is a run day for me. Unfortunately, I have two kids who aren’t feeling well at home. Girl child (who turned 17 last week, OMG what the what!) seems to have the stomach flu. Boy child (age 10 for those following along at home) didn’t sleep well because thunderstorms blew through last night. He’s not scared of them but the lightning strikes were so close and loud it kept waking him up. He woke up grumpy AF and I wasn’t going to torture his teachers with that attitude. I sent him back to bed.

So I need to figure out a way to run today. I’m thinking I may have to wait until later, hoping the rain passes.

I like running. I always have. I don’t want to jog with anyone though. It’s all about being alone listening to great music and simply putting one foot in front of the other. Just typing about it makes me want to throw on my shoes, storms be damned, and just hit the trail right now. Is this insanity? Maybe so…..

I’ve been working on my running music playlist. That means more music listening and more happy discoveries. Yay, new music! 🙂

*Wild Belle: I’ve been a fan for a while and their new single “Throw Down Your Guns” is stellar. Their album “Dreamland” comes out in April. Booyah! <3

*Mumiy Troll is a Russian rock band. Seriously. I can’t even remember how they came to my attention. One listen grabbed my attention and then I happily spent an hour down the rabbit hole called SoundCloud exploring their music. Love!!!

*As I type up these posts I listen to the music I’m going to share. I’ve not typed in 5 minutes because I was pulled into the gorgeous sound of Joon Moon. Their EP was released in 2015. No word yet on when the full album will hit (sometime this year). I.Can’t.Wait. Here’s Apple Day…..we’ll have to make due with that and a few others until the album is released.

*One thing I miss the most about working in radio was working with IMC. It’s a spot called “Across the Pond” where American programmers share up and coming artists with radio listeners in the UK and the American audience is introduced to new UK musicians. I made some wonderful friends. And heard some great music. Paul Knowles, who heads IMC and the brain child behind Across the Pond, is kind enough to still send me music from the UK. That’s what gets us to Hollie April today. Impressive songwriting, beautiful voice, and crisp production puts Momma K in her super happy place. Here’s “Father”. Listen, love, and share.

I finally met Paul face to face last May. Here’s our selfie. 🙂
