Monster

Happy Halloween!!!! I was inspired to create a Halloween offering for you, my sweets. Full of monsters and things that laugh in the night… enjoy. The recording is no longer up but here are the lyrics.


Monster

Words and Music by Wendy Hunt
Verse 1:
Monday saw me crying in the window.
Looking through the curtain at you standin’ on the street.
Tuesday I was howling at the full moon
You laughed at my furry face and called me a freak.
Wednesday I was getting kinda angry.
Sharpened horns and a leather whip. There was  sulfur on the breeze.
Thursday my shadow chased you to the boneyard
I’ve got some neighbors that I’m hoping you’ll meet.
Chorus:
Everything about you calls out to the beast in me.
It’s lookin’ through my eyes, just waitin’ to break free.
You chase away the best in me.
You bringing out the … mon-ster in me.
Verse 2:
Friday saw me feeling awful lonely
Only got earthworms and carrion crows keepin’ me company.
so on Saturday … I threw you party
Pickled toads and boiled bats I made just for you, my sweet.
Sunday … I took the day off
I’m hoping that you rested too, in your bed of soil … six feet deep.

Follow Your North Star

This past month has been one where I’ve felt a little lost, even while I felt like I knew exactly where I was going. I did all the ‘right’ things; crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s but I felt a little empty and inadequate at the end of every day. Too much on my plate and no brakes to say ‘no.’ I was sorry every week to miss the opportunity to say ‘Hey’ to you guys.

Don’t Fear the Egg

This week has been cold and rainy and a little grey. And this is the week that Annie, our giant chicken, laid her first egg. It was a little alarming for her and her chicken friend, Lucy and they clucked the whole time.

Love Thy Frickin’ Self

I woke up this morning a little under the weather and the urge to stay in, under covers and just be. And here I am typing away at you guys. That’s cause I’m being led down a rabbit hole – a helpful one and have an urge to share.

Tech Tips

Tech Tip: iPhone Precision Keyboard Cursor

Selecting text on my iPhone has always been frustrating, but it’s been especially so since they stopped magnifying the text when you long press it. What I didn’t know, until recently, is that Apple updated the way the cursor works in iOS 12 — two years ago!

Ants vs Owl

None of us is the yogi on the mountain or the unflappable guru. We’ve got lives and reactions to life, families, businesses, emergencies and troubles.

Tech Tip: Remove Text Formatting in Windows

Do you ever have a need to remove formatting from text before pasting it into Word or some other document software? I do this all the time in my design work, and I needed a way to do this in Windows 10.
