Firendship and Tunes

I wanted to side step today and talk about something that is near and dear to my heart, and that is all of you. See, I live far away from family and all the friends I grew up with, and many of the friends I have now are through work, and you know what most work friends tend to talk about when they are together… Plus with work friends I am never sure what to share and what to hold back because once again these are work friends, and things could get sticky if you reveal a side of yourself and you cease to be friends!

My post tonight is for a couple reasons-I first want to thank all of you for finding joy in my joy, “getting” my sense of humor, and listening without judgment, and I truly hope I have entertained you in some way. I am also feeling pretty mixed emotionally this evening, and what better way to get mellow than with a song or too, right? So I am giving you a couple Tuesday Tunes tonight to calm you down from a couple old guys (yes, they are looking old I’m afraid) who are the kings of mellow. Here are Simon & Garfunkel with “The Sound of Silence”, and “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Goodnight everybody!


  1. Those are two of my favorite S&G songs. Everybody needs a little mellow now and then.

  2. I agree that if you share too much about yourself with friends at work it can get very messy. I've gotten myself into some very sticky situations in that area. Let's just say I learned my lesson.

  3. Hi Susan,

    We have these guys on CD. They have been favourites for a long time. How did you know that I needed to chill out?

    Work has been hectic, so I have been pulled away from my usual haunts on the computer and forced to do serious stuff instead.

    Too bad I couldn't find a job that allows me to blog and read blogs.

    Now I am just going to have a glass of wine and listen to your S&G again.

  4. Susan, I'm so happy to get to know you through our blogs. I'm very happy to have you as a friend. Like you, I feel wonderful to have found lovely buddies like you for conversation, sympathy, laughing, and fun. Love the tunes too!! You know that music always makes me smile :) Hugs!! -- Kelly

  5. Thank you for that little bit of mellow...now if you wouldn't mind pouring me another glass of wine...

    I enjoy your blog...and I know what you mean about work friends. My adult conversations revolve around my daughter and my husband's--medicine--especially when he's with colleagues. It is nice to get to know others through their blogs.

  6. Susan it has been so nice getting to know you as well. I love making friends through blogs. I wish I could visit every day. Thanks for thinking of us with this post. Have a great night.

  7. Hey Susan! It's a pleasure reading you, and though it may sound weird, I consider you a friend - even if we have not seen each other face to face hehe Smile! :)

  8. I love calling you my friend! : )

    Love S&G, I saw them play at the Grammy's years ago, and it gave me goosebumps!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I swear to God I sing the sound of silence 3 times a week after I put Sarah down for her nap!

  10. DG-These two are my favorites too.

    "Mommy is Green," just when I think my lesson, well...

    Shelly, blogging all day would certainly be fun!

    September Mom, I feel the same. And you know I got the idea of playing a few tunes from you!

    Alyssa, both comments came through, but I through. (The second one made me laugh, but I put your comment choice here instead.)

    "Clueless Mama," doesn't it feel like we are virtually visiting each others houses?

    Hypermom, I consider you a friend too, and I am glad you take the time to visit.

    Molly, what a nice comment!

    "The Girl," silence is golden, and kind of the reason why I chose this song. Ah...

  11. I am so happy that we are bloggy friends, Susan! You are a sweetheart. Thanks for the lovely post and for all the comment love you continually bestow upon my blog. You are the greatest. XOXOX

  12. I love being able to stop by and "visit" and also feel like I've found a friend. I love Sound of Silence & Bridge is one of my all time favorite "albums". My older sister used to put it on for me as my bedtime music. I still know every word to every song. And Hmm, one of my children is named after one of the songs on it...yeah, that would be too hard to guess right?:)

  13. Hi, first time I'm reading your blog.And I really enjoyed to read your post and to listen those beautiful songs.You said that very well, and I agree.
    Have a great week!

  14. Organic Mom with Cool Whip, I love going by your site-you always make me laugh!

    MPG, Ok I didn't get it at first... Monday thing you know.

    Yonca, thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you enjoyed the music!


Please make my day and leave a comment.
