This song goes well with the smell of apples and cinnamon

My wife baked an apple crumble for us this cold and rainy afternoon.

It's a pretty chilly, rainy weekend so we've had a pretty laid back weekend at home with our kids. My wife and I re-watched the sci-fi classic, Serenity, for the nth time (still awesome after 13 years). Afterwards, I switched over to some music and, instead of picking a favourite playlist, I opted for the… Continue reading Discovering Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist

I really like this Relax & Unwind playlist on Spotify. Aside for it’s obvious purpose, I like it as a general purpose/background music/atmosphere playlist: https://open.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/37i9dQZF1DWU0ScTcjJBdj?si=06eVKiWeTra_gyy7rqQ9Zw unsplash-logoFeatured image by Clem Onojeghuo
