Reboot. Recharge.

When all else fails, just shut it down for 5 seconds and turn it back on. Just like new!

My logo is done, and I've just begun to design the website.
I gave my notice with a tentative date (july 27), and I hope to be up in running in August!
Off to the Cape for the weekend, and my class is cancelled for next week due to the July 4th holiday, so no Spin Cycle next week.
Happy holidays - enjoy the heat!

Spin Cycle 06/21/07

Ever wake in a panic, knowing you've overselpt?
Yup, that was me this morning.
My daughter had a tough sleeping night, and I was up with her a bunch of times. So when I fell back asleep again at 4 am, having to get up at 5 am, I was doomed!
Well, I woke up at 5:33 am, and bolted to make it to my class at 6 am.
I brushed my teeth in the car!

Again, no rhyme or reason to the tunes. Just a bunch that I like:

1) Teardrop - Massive Attack
2) Real Gone - Sheryl Crow
3) Who Knew? - Pink
4) Soulchild Remix - Gorillaz
5) Semi-charmed Life - Third Eye Blind
6) Rich Girl - Gwen Stafani
7) California Soul - Riot Act
8) Jump Around - House of Pain
9) Speed of Sound - Coldplay
10) Ring My Bell - Anita Ward
11) Smooth - Santana
12) Girl - Beck
13) Got to Be Real - CherylLynn
14) Pick up the Pieces - Gomez

The season has begun

I bought my first quarts of native strawberries today and they are truly scrumptious. They came from the Connecticut River Valley. It is a sign that farm season has begun. And wouldn't you know it, I got the email that my Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share will start next week for the season!
Amazing, can't wait for the bounty to begin.

Spin Cycle 06/14/07

I call this my 2005 mix, because I think a lot of the songs on the list came out in 2005. I like this mix. It’s got a little bit of everything where pop is concerned. Again, it was pretty high energy, like last week, and the class worked hard. I also used this play list last night when I taught, and that class REALLY worked hard. It’s good to see.
Here it is:

1. The Way You Move - Outcast
2. Lose My Breath – Destiny’s Child
3. Stupid Girls – Pink
4. Don’t Phunk With My Heart – Black Eyed Peas
5. Check On It - Beyonce
6. Sorry – Madonna
7. Crazy In Love – Beyonce
8. Toxic – Britenay Spears
9. Independent Women – Destiny’s Child
10. This Is How a Heart Breaks – Rob Thomas
11. Hot in Herre - Nelly
12. Hey Ya – Outcast
13. Pump It – Black Eyed Peas
14. In the Sun (Gulf Coast Relief) – Michael Stipe with Chris Martin
15. Poor Me – Cold Play (I’m not sure if this is the correct name – it’s from the Fix You EP)
