TAD Music


Today is Thursday and that means Thursday Art Date, "TAD", with Rain. Her theme this week is, "Music". Well I am going a different route with this. I was making and canning Jam yesterday and as I leaned over the counter to listen for the, "pop" of the lids sealing, I said, 
"Now that is music to my ears"



 The sound of my grand and great grand kids laughing.

 The song of the river.






when I was a kid I played the flute and had to read music. It looked like this in my dyslexia brain. I was better at hearing the music and then playing it.Free Music Notes Images Free, Download Free Music Notes Images Free png  images, Free ClipArts on Clipart Library 

Not my best blog post but I made the theme.

I am linking up with Rain and the other musical people joining in TAD

No Matter What Your State or Country Says Be Safe Out There And Protect Yourself. Not Everyone Without A Mask Is Vaccinated. 

Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. ...the sound on lids popping is music to my ears.

  2. I like your take on this theme. It is wonderful and totally different from how I envisioned this theme.

  3. Music to our ears comes in all forms!

  4. Beautiful post! Children's laughter is always a special music! Valerie

  5. I like where you went with the theme!

  6. Hey Nicole 🙂 Yes, you sure did make the theme 🎵 I love music too, helps in so many ways & it's just fun, after all 💜

  7. I do like your take on the theme ... well done :)

    All the best Jan

  8. Hi Nicole,
    In any case, that's a very creative approach to music. Everyone determines what music is in their own ears. I can also sing a song about dyslexia, my daughter is very much affected by it and it was only through dealing with it that I realized that I am also dyslexic (although my problem is bigger with numbers, clockwise ... oh, and music notesI don't understand, too...)
    All the best and happy weekend, Traude

  9. We do the same thing, wait for the lids to pop and count them until we know that they are ready to store in the pantry. It's music to our ears too.

  10. I think this is a wonderful post! I remember that jar popping bringing a sigh of joy for me as well lol, making jam is off limits with my current eye sight, I learned this lesson the hard way, I think I am a slow learner, your examples of music are just perfect, simply perfection. 👍❤️

  11. Sometimes music to my ears isn't what other people consider music at all :) I like your take on the challenge.

  13. I love your original twist on "Musicals," Nicole! Your jam looks delicious. I know that pop. I've gone back to wearing my mask again in places like grocery stores, even though I'm vaccinated. There is a lot of the Delta variant in the USA, so I'm choosing to be as careful as I can. I neither want to catch it or pass it on to someone Have a good one! Stay safe!

  14. Oh Nicole, you are a clever, clever young lady. Your post was short, but meaningful... finding music in the things you love. It doesn't get any better than that. And I was not dyslexic, but reading music was a pain and I preferred playing by ear. If it works ... don't change it. My son would listen to his teacher play the song she was assigning and then come home and play it by ear. When his teacher figured out that he wasn't reading the music, she assigned difficult songs so he would have to read the music. After a short time, my son quit his music lessons but continued to play at home by ear. Hopefully times have changed and teaching methods accommodate the unique needs of the learner. Great post, Nicole ...

  15. lol, I love your Music. Especially your drawn one. I love the way your music looks. :)

  16. Nicole,

    The sound of music can be heard in all kinds of sounds from lids popping to happy voices of children to nature. You did a fab job capturing Rain's prompt. Well done! Now back to the jam making, you can send a jar of that fine looking stuff to .... lol That's something I would like to do but will probably never do. :) Thanks for visiting and I'm sorry for being late to return the favor. ;)

  17. It's a WONDERFUL take on the theme!!! Popping cans are music to my ears too! And yes...any sound of water, waves, rainfall...totally musical! :)
