Honey Bee by Zee Avi

I have been humming this beautiful tune by Zee Avi, to myself ever since I saw her amazing performance last week at the El Rey.
I was even humming it yesterday when I stepped on a bee and got stung on my toe. I'm still humming it. RIP Honey Bee.

Little Pink Houses

I grew up in homes with brown or neutral walls. I always wanted my room to be painted yellow. We just moved into a home that we are going to remodel. Much of the house is dark wood panel. Some walls are that beige that is neither here nor there. The first thing I did when we moved in was to let the kids paint the walls, ceilings and floors. I wonder why so many people shy away from color in their homes. It's so easy to paint and repaint. And what a difference a shade makes.
