I'm a little feverish which is no way to kick off the official summer season. But then again, perhaps my body decided it was not up for travels to family gatherings this weekend. I will disappoint some little people if we don't go but probably end up feeling pretty crappy if we do. Ah well, let's throw a little music on and think about it.

This week, I am featuring the music of Jaymay, a young singer/songwriter from New York. The YouTube clip is the live version of her song, Sea Green, See Blue. You can listen to the studio version HERE. I'll be honest, I haven't listened to much beyond this song, hence a restrained endorsement. She's refreshing in this song and I enjoy how she tells a story. I hope you do too.


On an unSpin related note, today is my Two Year Blogaversary. I started off here to have a creative outlet so from that standpoint I guess I have succeeded. I won't link to my embarrassing first posts, but I will say that I do enjoy my little corner of the Blogosphere. I appreciate the friendships made along the way, the warm comments and really each of your unique voices.

Simply said - thank you.

Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend whatever it brings.

Sorry to hear you are sick, especially in the Spring. This has been a really cool May for us here. Hope you get to feeling better.

Thanks T&I. The verdict is in - we're staying home so that I can relax. Julian has a cold too so it's for the best I believe. The weather this past week has been rainy and cool also. Thanks for your good wishes.

Happy anniversary. I appreciate having you around these last two years. Thanks for being here and get some chicken soup.

JAYMAY sounds a little like K T Tunstal. Very nice style and voice. I love how you always find the good ones.

Bummer of a weekend to feel under the weather... so try to enjoy laying low and keeping the home fires burning. (Do you have a hibatchi on your porch? You could bbq some nice shishkabobs and pretend you were at the beach) :)
Our sun is gone and it is threatening to rain... perhaps my own back yard bbq will be under the overhang of the garage.

Happy blogging anniversary. I'm coming up on 3 years this next month - seems like a lot longer than that for some reason. I'm glad to be one of your biggest fans.

I don't remember those early posts as embarrassing.

Nice song. You have such a knack for exposing the hidden little gems out there. Thanks for doing these Saturday Spins... I appreciate them.

Happy Blogiversary lil' g! Two years is actually a long long time in this business, so you should feel good about your little corner of the Blogosphere. Hope you have a nice and relaxing weekend. :-)

Happy Bloganniversary! Get better soon!

Thanks Doug. I appreciate the fact that you along with Pia helped me be around these past two years. I certainly would not have started blogging without that free Long Island paper and Pia's encouragement and subsequent volleying me over to you for help :) Time for a little more soup - insurance policy.

Terry, I heard someone familiar in there, perhaps that's who.

Yeah, I'm feeling a bit better already. We have better - a grill in the backyard! Which come to think of it, we have not fired up yet - perhaps tomorrow.

Terry, 3 years is a long time but it does fly by! I'm happy to have joined our mutual admiration society :)

Thank you Weirsdo. You're too kind.

Thanks Pavel! I return those sentiments and thank you. Here's to blogging buddy days ahead. :)

Thanks Claire - I'm feeling a bit better already. I so much enjoy your visits, so thank you!

Jeff, thanks for coming by to listen. I know that you do.

Two years is a long time which on the other hand, seems to have flown by. Hope you have a nice weekend yourself.

Ariel, I'm feeling better already 0 thank you!

I'm beginning to wonder if it's allergies. And thanks - yeah, where did two years get to? It's been a fun ride.
