Merry of Soul

This morning broke clean and chill over the Kansas hills.

This morning I am listening to Russian soundtracks from Toygar. Which are classical and hauntingly beautiful.

Sura, Toygar

The coffee pot at my house took a turn for the worst so I’ve been enjoying the gifts of my Keurig. Haha, which is quite amazing! I have been drinking the pods called Dark Magic and the Columbian coffee pods.

Green Mountain Coffee Dark Magic

Dark Magic has a deep chocolate undertone that is just a perfect excuse for having chocolate in the morning. It has some flavor notes of smoky cinnamon too.

Dark Columbian Coffee

This is a fantastic roast, that has a really sweet smooth nutty flavor. Though this blend is not as strong as Dark Magic it is an exceptional roast.


I am listening to one of my favorite soundtracks, from Outlander. “The Skye Boat Song”, which historically is completely butchered.

The original song detailed Bonny Prince Charlie’s Escape to the Isle of Skye (Scotland) in Flora McDonald’s boat. Charlie was disguised as a washerwoman.

The Skye Boat Song

I have to hand it to Outlander though. I love the setting and the actors are perfect for their parts–so realistically fantastical, stellar acting. I think especially that Murtaugh’s character is profound, he is so loyal. But honestly, if we’re getting into Outlander, that’s definitely another post.

So be

Merry of soul.
