live a little, love a lot ~ kenny chesney

Posted Feb 19 2013 4:04pm

If that doesn’t make you chuckle; YOU HAVE NO SOUL  ::slams gavel down::

Oh, hey ~ I’m still here. Just busy living life, and not a whole lot to say. Sometimes I think I want to write up a post, and then I change my mind. I sit down to write, (i actually wrote “right” originally) but then I can only think of like 2 sentences worth of writing so I say “fuh-get-about it” and find something more fun to do.

Things are good here. I’m still not running, and I still don’t miss it. Jenny is running Gasparilla this weekend, which she is regretting, and I’m not jealous. The weather is supposed to be crap, which is pretty much par for the course for Gasparilla ….. plus, the half starts at 6am, on a sunday. Nope, I’ve grown accustomed to sleeping in on Sundays.

Except that one time a few weeks ago I woke up at 3am to go watch Jenny & her co-worker do a duathlon relay – That was fun. It was at Ft. Desoto, I just can’t pass up an excuse to head over to Ft. Desoto, I love that place.

I’m still lifting 4-5 days a week – sometimes less. I don’t do cardio on an regular schedule, I do it whenever the mood strikes (kind of like sex, but less frequent.) JK. I’m not talking to you about my sex life – geez, my Mom reads.. and possibly my Papa.

This morning I sat on my back patio, with my cup of coffee, eyes closed and just soaked in the cool air. I listened to the sounds around me. Let myself be at peace for a few minutes. I think these types of moments are so important ~ just a few minutes to be completely relaxed. Life is so GO GO GO GO GO ~

I LOVE Kenny Chesney.. I’ve never seen him in concert, but I own his albums, and I just love him. He speaks to my soul ~ His songs brings out the dreamer in me – The girl that wants to sail away on a boat and never come back. The girl that would pack up her house and move to the Caribbean so fast your head would spin. That girl is spontaneous, and laid back, and has dreads.

I love almost every Kenny song, but here is one of my current favorites, Don’t Blink & then my all time favorite, Boston.

Don’t Blink ~ Kenny Chesney  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4f0p5KqdU9U

I turned on the evening news
Saw a old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two today
Asked him what’s the secret to life
He looked up from his old pipe
Laughed and said “All I can say is.”

[Chorus:]
Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your better half
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink

I was glued to my TV and it looked like he looked at me and said
“Best start putting first things first.”
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can’t flip over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth

[Chorus]

I’ve been tryna slow it down
I’ve been tryna take it in
In this here today gone tomorrow world we’re livin’ in

[Chorus]

Now, don’t blink

 

BOSTON ~ Kenny Chesney http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iARe58XFGuU  {there is no official video that I can find, that’s just a link to a youtube video that plays the song)

She comes from Boston
Works at the jewelry store
Down in the harbor
Where the ferries come to shore
She never really knew how good it would feel
To finally find herself in a place so warm and real

She wears a Red Sox cap
To hide her baby dreads
The girl she was in New England
Is different now and dead
In all the local bars
She flirts and tells the boys while they’re talkin’
She’s from Boston

She comes from Boston
Talks to her family now and then
Through e-mails and postcards
She tries to explain to them
That education and occupation will have to wait for now
She loves the Rasta, reggae rhythms, her dreams have changed somehow

She wears a Red Sox cap
To hide her baby dreads
The girl she was in New England
Is different now and dead
In all the local bars
She flirts and tells the boys while they’re talkin’
She’s from Boston

Her toes dig deep and deeper in the sand
She’s seduced by the sunsets and her new life at hand

She wears a Red Sox cap
To hide her baby dreads
The girl she was in New England
Is different now and dead
In all the local bars
She flirts and tells the boys while they’re talkin’
She’s from Boston

She wears a Red Sox cap
To hide her baby dreads
From Boston
She came to this island from Boston

Is there an artist that speaks to your soul? Or a particular song that you just feel totally at peace listening to?
I could listen to Boston by Kenny Chesney on repeat FOR HOURS.
