I’ve missed this kind of music. Oh yeah.

Listening to the early albums of  The Beatles on YouTube while I am having my tab charged for further reading. I placed the headset on Oreo’s ears a while ago and now he is watching me tapping my fingers near where he is. When you talk to him, his head goes this way and that and seems like he understands.  Maybe he does, who knows. His eyes look alert.

Having a puppy for company all day long, it  makes you a little inventive…haha! When he is not sleeping, he watches me and sometimes reaches out his two front paws and touches my hand while I am holding the mouse.  He is about four months old  now and in human years, (with his pedigree)  that is equivalent to a five-year old.  I have to do research on this because I am curious about his age.  He has lost three of his milk teeth.

Going back to The Beatles, I am playing their Greatest Hits Collection, more than an hour of  listening to their well-loved songs. I am reminded of my younger years when what you can hear on the radio are different groups and artists who belonged to the  first British Invasion, a cultural phenomenon of the mid-60’s. Who would not be reminded of the Dave Clark Five, the Rolling Stones, Herman’s Hermits, the Hollies, Chad and Jeremy? I love them all.

There was a time when my kids were small, we used to watch old films of The Beatles on a new music channel on television. Maybe, that’s why until now, Josef downloads some on his Bose SoundLink Mini and he let’s me listen to it.

The golden sun showed its face early and the rays made the  green leaves of the plants shiny and bright. Sun-lit grass, they’re like pearls scattered all around.  It rained a little last night, another day of saving precious water to maintain them.

I spent an hour at the garden before the sun was up, pruning, weeding and sweeping unwanted fallen leaves on the ground. I need not tell you how peaceful and quiet the early morning was. A really perfect time to commune with Nature.

Just done with my 79th read yesterday, 31 books ahead of schedule on my  Goodreads’ Reading Challenge. Through Rushing Water by Catherine Richmond  is a historical novel set in 1876 at the Ponca Indian Agency in Dakota Territory. It is a story of a tribe struggling with daily lives, trying to make do with the meager means they have and a missionary who taught the Indian kids  in such  a primitive place. It was inspired by true events  experienced by the Ponca Indians. This is the first time I encountered a story about the lives of Indians in early America and it was a riveting  and inspiring read.

When you find a good book that makes you learn events of the past, you’ll try to look for another book like it. Presently though, I’ve started on a thriller called Look  For Me, it’s my first read of Lisa Gardner.  I hope it does not disappoint.

Time flies, the June month is almost over. Happy Thursday everyone. Be someone’s sunshine today. May we all be blessed.
