That sweet humid air hit my face the minute the plane door opened. 
Running through the terminal like I'm finishing a race to hug my mom and oma. 
The instant I was in her arms. Nothing can describe it. 
Tears. Smiles. Laughter.Finally. 
My bed. My room. My nephews. Mexican. Smores. Poolside. Walmart. Target.
So far it's been sweet bliss and I've only been here two days. 
I'll already go ahead and let you know I probably won't be posting much while I'm here. 
Because every waking moment is going to be cherished and spent doing things I can't do back in my other home. 

Thanks again Hannah for always pulling through with the amazing Music Mondays. Isn't she great yall? Is everyone else addicted to her spotifiy playlist like I am? Seriously check it out! 

Right. Time change aka jet lag has it that I am awake at 5 something in the morning. Might just go for a little run with the dog Shadow whom by the way is absolutely adorable. Not exactly as adorable as my two nephews. Braxton (who after hugging me said he missed me... MELT) and Easton who I have finally gotten to meet and want to eat his little toesies right off. 

Here is my visit so far in Instagram pictures. By the way if you follow me on Instagram I am sorry. I can get a little carried away with the snapping but I can't help it. 
cocktails with Allison

meet Allison my once roomie :) 

this kind of happened at like 11 o'clock at night.
 I couldn't resist any longer. 

Sitting on the back porch early morning as the sun comes up with Iced coffee. 
Don't mind if I do. 

Meet Shadow the new family addition. It's safe to say we get along just great.
Although he is quite heavy and seems to want to knock me down with his twice my weight size. 


Mommala. anyone notice anything? eh? eh? ;) 

Right. Now for that run..... I can hear shadow downstairs antsy pantsy for a little bonding time. 

Ta ta for now y'all.

Music Mondays

Hello, hullo.

Wow. What a crazy weekend, infact a wonderful weekend or couple of days should I say of live music.
On Wednesday I had the chance to go and check out some fresh acts at Communion's night, held in Leeds. There really is nothing that beats live music in a really small venue, so relaxed and a great atmosphere, one guy actually got off stage and did a sing-a-long camp fire esque acoustic song with the audience. Yes, there were only twenty of us but it was incredibly good.

On Thursday I went along to another gig, this time my friends band, I think it was actually their third gig ever. However, yesterday I went and saw the big names in pop. Jay Z, Rihanna, Florence & The Machine etc...

Yes, I am also keen on the above, who'd have thought it hey. I don't just listen to folk and therefore thought I may mix it up a little this week. One thing however, I really hate all this over produced use of pop and techno noise. Noise, is all I can describe it is, so there will be none of that I am afraid. Of course, I still keep my folkie roots.

So, without further ado. Here goes.

First up,

Oh Land - White Nights

Born in Copenhagen, this Danish singer-songwriter now resides in Brooklyn, New York. Born to musician parents, her father, an organist, her mother, an opera singer, the future seemed fairly certain for Nanna Oland Fabricius, best known by her stage name Oh Land.

Oh Land did infact start as a dancer, a former student of both the Royal Danish and Royal Swedish Ballet schools. However, a spinal fracture ended her career in dancing, leading her to start making music.

Oh Land's debut album, Fauna, was released in 2008 by independent label Fake Diamond Records. Her follow up album came three years later and reached number five on the Danish Albums Chart.

Following her US debut TV performance on Late Show with David Letterman, this album was released as her debut in the States. This led to a performance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

From there on, the future has looked incredibly well for Oh Land. Touring with the likes of Sia and Katy Perry on her California Dreams tour through US, UK and Ireland. Infact, it was in the UK on this very tour that I had the pleasure of seeing Oh Land.

Her stage presence and persona is a unique and fresh approach to the music industry.  The above song, White Nights is my personal favourite, taken from her self titled, second studio album, Oh Land.

Blood Orange - Forget It 

This guy sounds like just the perfect man, having drunkenly found himself singing Janet Jackson songs to Jay Z and landing a consultancy job at the rapper's fashion label need I say more?

Having been invited to the birthday party of Solange Knowles, the next day, he awoke to a meeting request as "Jay's" office, along with the Knowles sisters.

Born in Houston Texas, Devonte Hynes, better known as Blood Orange or previously as Lightspeed Champion, is a singer-songwriter, producer, artist and author! Raised in Essex from the age of 2, he has written for the likes of Florence Welch and The Chemical Brothers.

He now resides in New York and is a prolific musician, having supported the likes of The Wombats and Florence & The Machine.

'Blood Orange' was the new musical project by Dev Hynes, focusing on electronica. His record, Coastal Grooves was released in August 2011 on Domino Records. Forget It was one of two singles to be released from the full length record. His work has also been featured on UK show, Skins.

Death Cab for Cutie - You Are A Tourist

Formed in 1997, this American alternative rock band consist of Ben Gibbard on vocals, guitar and piano, Chris Walls - guitarist, keys and production, Nick Harmer, bass and Jason McGerr, drums.

Formed in Washington to date, the band have released seven studio albums, five EPs and one demo. Their music has been described as indie rock, alternative rock and are praised for their use of unconventional instrumentals and lyrical style.

Their name was formed following a song featuring in The Beatles film, Magical Mystery Tour. The band's latest album was released in May 2011, drawing comparisons rife to the likes of The Stone Roses. The album, Codes and Keys was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 54th Grammy Awards.

This year sees the band tour across the globe, visiting the likes of Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. They will also be gracing the European festivals this summer.

The Drums - Book of Revolution 

From looking at the above, I am already sold. Having seen them live, I can tell you, they really are phenomenal.

In 2009, the American indie pop band hailing from NY were shortlisted for the BBC Sound of 2010, later placed at number 5 on the prestigious list.

In February 2010, the Drums performed a string of UK dates, playing alongside the likes of The Maccabees and Bombay Bicycle Club for the NME Awards Tour. This followed by landing support slots for Florence & The Machine's 2010 Cosmic Love tour and Kings of Leon's Hyde Park date, London. Not half bad for a bunch of lads from Brooklyn, two of which met at Summer camp when they were just 12/13.

In May 2010, they performed on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, raising eyebrows and critical acclaim from many. Their debut album was released a month later containing singles such as Let's Go Surfing and Down By The Water. 

However, it's not been all plain sailing for these lovely lot, with the band revealing that they almost split due to stylistic disagreements. It seems the band became fragile and in September 2010, guitarist Adam Kessler left the band.

Luckily, the music doesn't reflect the above and The Drums continue to create brilliant, nostalgic pop records, notably influenced by the likes of The Smiths, Joy Division and New Order.

Howler - The One's Different

Howler, consisting of Jordan Gatesmith (lead guitar and vocals) Brent Mayes (drums) Ian Nygaard  (guitar) and Max Petrek (bass), are an indie rock band from Minnesota.

Having received international recognition, they have developed quite a following, especially from NME, who named Howler their third Best New Band for 2011.

Formed in 2010 out of boredom by a nineteen year old Greensmith, their success has gone from strength to strength. In 2011, their EP was sent to Rough Trade Records without their knowledge, later landing them a record deal. Following this, the band supported The Vaccines on their UK tour.

Their debut album, America Give Up was released in early 2012 and the band quickly set off on tour, travelling to the likes of United States, UK, Europe, Brazil and Japan. They too will be doing their rounds of the UK's festival circuit, performing at Lattitude and Benicassim.

I hope you've enjoyed today's line up and I will be sure to upload them on the spotify for you to listen, for completely free. In the meantime, until next Monday - have a super week and let's hope the sun comes out.

PS. Tanja is going to make everybody jealous with the fact she's going home tomorrow so from me, have a fantastic time and I hope the journey is one full of awesome music and comfort :) xx

Yep it's true. I've been playing in the kitchen again. Stay tuned for these three how-tos.

Date night.

So David and I have been doing alot of work and no play and decided that we would go for a nice quiet meal on Saturday. 
We were going to go to Mello Mello but they were closed so we decided to try and find somewhere new to go. We took a turn off Bold street and saw this place called Lucha Libre across from FACT picturehouse. 
It was this amazing Mexican Street Food restaraunt with amazingly friendly staff. 
You get chips and salsa WITH refills. (tell me where in England does this....) 
I mean its no La Huerta if any Arkansas friends are reading this but hey it's better than nothing. 
David had Fish Tacos and I had this amazing Black Mamba Chicken Salad. 
I usually never get salads when we go out as they usually have loads of gross dressing, needless different things and I'm never really satisfied but this was absolutely brilliant. It had pine nuts, papaya, apples, grilled chicken, greens and a drizzle of some Black Mamba sauce. Perfection. 
I also thought we would live a bit on the edge and have a drink. I had a peach margharita and David had a beer. Then afterwards instead of desert we both got a black coffee with Amaretto. Favourite.

Then our lovely waitor asked if we wanted to go downstairs for some drinks. 
There is a downstairs? 
Oh my goodness it was spectacular. 
It was like the walking dead. A tequilleria in dark settings. Old horse saddles turned bar stools, mexican type skulls and a tequilla shot list from HELL. 
David and I decided we would have a few shots. 
Let me tell you, tequilla and I don't play well together. 
I never ever ever drink it. 
For some reason I thought to fight the better judgement and have a few shots. 
Fast forward to 2 am and David and I are still in our booth right by the speakers singing along to songs from Kanye West to Stevie Wonder absolutely tanked having the time of our lives. 

I love that the two of us can go out and have so much fun. He really is my best friend and I couldnt have asked for a better husband. I can hardly believe it's almost been a year since the best day of my life. I love you David.

Music Mondays

Hello there!

The weeks seem to be flying past and we are in the midst of festival season, this weekend I will be gracing the fields for the first time, on the hunt for new artists of course.

In the meantime, the sun is shining and I have something extra special for you this week.
Heard of a little thing called Spotify, I think it's sorta big now. Well, I have handpicked the creme de la creme for you lovely lot and I would love for you to take a listen.

If you've missed out on any Music Monday's or are a new viewer then fear not, this playlist will have you up to scratch in no time. All you have to do is get a spotify account and you can listen for absolutely free. So what are you waiting for... I sent it over to Tanja as a little treat and I think she's already hooked!

Anyway, this week, I have some goodies.

1. BOY - Little Numbers

This duo are quickly becoming my favourite act of 2012. Boy have seen their success rapidly progress following their debut track Little Numbers, developing as a somewhat overnight internet sensation via. YouTube.

Formed in 2007 by Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass, the Swiss-German duo have perfected their intricate vocals and slow, melodic sounds to a tee. Their debut album, Mutual Friends was released in Autumn 2011 however, has just arrived in the UK, available to purchase from today.

The album explores the chemistry of these two talented artists, with their perfectly harmonised vocal interplay telling a story oh so delightfully. The Hamburg duo have been announced to support Katie Melua on her upcoming tour. I expect you'll be hearing a lot more of these two and to be frank, I can't wait. Definitely ones to watch.

2. Crystal Fighters - Plage

Formed in London, 2007, this British/Spanish electronic band are best known for their captivating live performances and their unique style. The band are made up of lead vocals and guitarist, Sebastian Pringle, Gilbert Vierich, electronics, percussion and guitar and Graham Dickson on guitar. In addition, the wonderful Laure Stockley and Mimi Borrelli on vocals.

The new release from this band is the perfect festival, summer song, with an catchy, excitable tone, sure to get stuck in your head, but it'll be worth it.

3. St Vincent - Cheerleader

Hailing from America, I introduce to you the wonderful Annie Erin Clarke, better known as St. Vincent. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Annie began playing the guitar at the age of 12 and begun her musical career as a member of The Polyphonic Spree. Clark later formed part of Sufjan Stevens' touring band before forming her own band in 2006.

Now residing in Manhattan, St Vincent comes with a following many could dream of including the likes of The Civil Wars and Bon Iver. Her collaboration with Bon Iver, Roslyn appeared on the soundtrack of Twilight Saga: New Moon.

Cheerleader comes from St Vincents' latest album, Strange Mercy, released in September, 2011.

4. Willy Mason - We Can Be Strong

Hailing from New York, Mason was born into a world of folk, with both his parents folk singers.
Having toured with the likes of Radiohead and Death Cab for Cutie, Mason has the ability to enthral any audience with his charming bluesy/folk vocals.

We Can Be Strong was released as a single in 2007, featuring the talented KT Tunstall and is taken from Mason's critically acclaimed second album, When The Ocean Gets Rough. 

Willy Mason is currently working on a new album and last year featured in the wonderful No Room For Doubt for another favourite of mine, Lianne La Havas' EP Lost & Found. 

Mason is currently on tour with Laura Marling in the US and Canada and will be returning to do his rounds of the UK's venues in August.

5. Feist - How Come You Never Go There

Leslie Feist is a Canadian singer-songwriter who performs both as a soloist and as a member of indie rock group, Broken Social Scene. Having started her solo career in 1999 at the young age of 15, Feist was the lead vocalist for Calgary based punk band, Placebo.

 Feist has since released subsequent studio albums, Let It Die and The Reminder, both of which gained commercial success, selling over 2.5 million copies. At the 2012 Juno Awards, Feist received three awards including Adult Alternative Album of the Year for Metals and Artist of the Year.

The song, How Come You Never Go There is the tender lead single of her fourth studio album, Metals, a soulful display of Feist's delightfully piercing voice. Oh and I just remembered I am seeing her live in a matter of months, I cannot wait. PS. Yes, it is the same artist who released the famous Mushaboom from 2004!

That's all for now folks but I hope you enjoy and be sure to check out the playlist, the above are up there too! One thing I must add, special thanks to The Crypt Sessions for the heads up on BOY, infact, check out their trailer for the live session here 

Enjoy the rest of the week, until next Monday,

Sweet potato tuna burgers

When it comes to dinner sometimes I don't know what I am actually going to cook but I'll start with one basic ingredient and then work from that. 
Lately I haven't been too creative or exciting. It's been the usual loop of food like an overplayed playlist. 
So the other day I grabbed two sweet potatoes knowing I wanted to make something with them. 
Then I remembered once I saw on Danielle's blog sweet potato burgers. 
So I thought what if I mixed tuna, sweet potatoes, beans, quinoa together?
I knew I was taking a bit of a risk but you know when weird things just seem to click? 
This was one of those times... 

Wow. Food Breakthrough

  • 2 sweet potatoes with skins
  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa
  • a can of drained tuna in water
  • can of mixed beans
( I used a spicy three bean salad can for added flavour)
  • 1 cup of rolled oats

Pre-heated oven to 220C
I boiled the sweet potato until it was soft but not too soft. 
Using a fork mash the potato into "mush". Do the same thing to the beans.
Add the pre cooked quiona and tuna. 
Add spices of your liking ( I used a Curry powder)
They will seem a bit mushy but grab some oats in your hands and then make a patty. Using the oats for density and a building block. 

Place them on a baking pan lined with aluminium foil. 
Put them in the oven and cook for approximately 15-18 minutes until the oats turn brown. I would turn half way through to ensure both sides get that crispy outside. 
Also the last few minutes I placed a small bit of Mature Cheddar on Davids burgers. 

I didn't know if David would really like it but he actually went back for thirds. 
You should definitely try this. It's not only veggie, but also healthier. 

Let me know what you think. :) 

Sidenote: I apologise for lack of more pictures as I didn't think it would turn out as lovely as they did. 
Here you can see I used lettuce instead of a bread bun, another healthy option. Weird yet so good.

Worry not.

I saw this quote once and I wrote it down in a journal and saw it the other day as I was reading through old journal entries. I think it's so very true so I put it with one of my pictures taken to share.

We spend so much time worrying about what hasn't happened yet. At the end of the day we don't really know if tomorrow will really come do we? We aren't guaranteed anything but that breath you are taking right now. It seems so simple to think of it like that but we never do. We get caught back up in thinking of things way ahead of time that are out of our hands. 

My father in law and I were talking the other day and he said something that really kind of clicked. He was talking about this man he knows who has worked his arse off to build this big massive company and he was now a millionaire after all the hard work. He died last week and that's that. 

None of that goes with you. It stays here. Although all of these things such as clothes, cars, money make life a little bit easier, it's the memories we make that are the most expensive of items. The ones we hold dear to our heart. When we are gone; whether it's tomorrow, next month, five years or seventy years, our loved ones won't hold onto that really expensive dress you wore or look at your car for memories. All they will need to do is close their eyes and memories will play like an old film.

I don't really know where this post has come from but I've just kind of been thinking about materialism and worry in general lately. I sometimes find myself getting irritated because I've been wearing the same jeans for I dont know how many years or that I feel like I can't find something to wear to work. When in fact I have plenty of clothes. They may not be designer and they may have some wear and tear on them, collected through the years but they are clothes none the less. Even with that out of the way what does it actually matter? Or even just looks in general. I don't know about you but I catch myself worrying too much about what I look like. There it is I've admitted it. I don't really care but yet I do. Yes it's probably reasonable to say a little effort is a positive thing but where do we draw the line? A little blush here and there then a little more. Thicker mascara? Why not. I lose out on so much time getting ready sometimes it really is a joke.

How old my jeans are or if my shirt isn't name brand doesn't define me. Ill define myself by the way I present myself. How I treat others. My actions. I really want to work less on the things I don't like and focus that energy on things that I do. Not everyone was born with super model legs, flawless skin, long strands of hair that look as if they were made of silk. I feel a lot of the time focusing on the negative can really ruin my day. Negativity does that I guess. Let's all look in the mirror tonight and tell ourselves we are beautiful the way our mothers made us. Our bodies, clothes and materials do not define ourselves. We define ourselves.  

So I kind of got a little carried away there. 

Lesson of the day. Stop worrying about tomorrow. Tomorrow may never come. For you and myself I sure do hope it does. 

Have a lovely evening everyone.

Ah fresh


Ohhhhh nothing quite like fresh juice.
Especially with it being summertime( you wouldn't know it with this weather)
What you'll need for this particular smoothie juice:

2 Beetroots
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries

Mix in a blender and there you have some fresh nice berry goodness :)

I was very reluctant to use beetroot but I must say it gave a nice taste with the other berries. 
It also liquified it a bit. 

I really am wanting to make more juices. I've seen loads of different vegetable juices I want to give a go. I just don't know if you can do them in a blender or need to be done in a juicer?

Have a lovely day!

Music Mondays

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was good and your Monday wasn't too mundane. However, if it was, I have some lovely jubbly music to send your way which will 
hopefully keep you smiling. 

So here goes... 

First up; Sufjan Stevens - 'Chicago'

(pronounced "SOOF-yahn") 

Born in Detroit, Michigan, American singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens first began releasing music back in the 90s. However, it was his 2005 album release, Illinois which gained him the recognition he so rightly deserves, charting number one in the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.

Stevens mixes electronica with folk and often pays reference to the Bible and spiritual traditions within his lyrics. Best known for his use of the banjo, Stevens also makes use of guitar, piano and drums throughout his albums via. multitrack recording.

However, in recent years Stevens has turned his extraordinary talents into an epic live production, with the addition of a 10-piece ensemble and full of sensational visuals. His song 'Chicago' is a track taken from his 2005 album Illinois, telling a story of a man on a road trip. The song was sampled in 2010 by Chiddy Bang, on their EP, The Preview with song, All Things Go.

2. Sigur Ros - 'Varuo'

Keeping with the 90s tradition of this blog post, Icelandic band Sigur Ros have been active since 1994. Famous for their distinctive Dark Wave, melancholy sound, falsetto vocals and bowed guitar, it won't be long before everyone's talking about Sigur Ros. Having already reached the top of the Icelandic music ladder, they will be 
gracing England with their presence at Bestival in September as part of their world tour, commencing in July.

In 2007, the band released their documentary film, Heima, following the band on tour around Iceland in the Summer of 2006. The film is available as a digital download va. their website

Varuo was the second released single from their sixth studio album, Valtari - released on 23 May 2012. 

3. Fionn Regan - 'Be Good or Be Gone'

Hailing from Bray, County Wicklow, Irish singer-songwriter and artist, Fionn Regan released his debut EP in 2002, titled Slow Wall. Since, he has received acclaim, especially following his 2006 debut album release The End of History which received a Mercury nomination.

Citing influences from the likes of Bob Dylan and Neil Young, Regan entices audiences with his lyrics and warm, folky vocals. His single, Be Good or Be Gone has been used widely in the television industry, featuring on Greys Anatomy and Skins.

Regan's third studio album 100 Acres of Sycamore, released in 2011 features backing vocals from individual favourite, The Staves, on North Star Lover. Recorded in just seven days, Regan revisits a style displayed throughout his debut album with the heavy use of strings and idyllic acoustic vocals.

4. HAIM - Forever

Girl crush alert***

Think the Kardashian sisters but talented, with a vocal ability reminiscent of The Staves/First Aid Kit/The Secret Sisters... I welcome to you the delightful HAIM. 

These three sisters combine whimsy folk with R&B backing beats, it really shouldn't work but my, this absurd genre mix really does. Hailing from LA, the sisters have become a hit following their appearance at this year's SXSW. Raised listening to the likes of Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac,it comes as no surprise that classic rock is in their blood and this is the outcome, a great one at that.

In the early years, the girls formed a band with their parents in tow, called Rockinhaim, covering the likes of Billy Joel, with the girls on vocals, Mummy on guitar and Daddy providing the drumming beats.

Their newly released video of album titled single, Forever is a mix of pure a capella harmonies and hip hop beats, showing the girls biking along the palm shaded streets of LA. Need I say more.

Their debut EP, Forever includes 3 tracks and can be downloaded from their website and is released on vinyl on July 2nd.

5. Portishead - Glory Box

Now this is a complete curveball, call it a spanner in the works if you wish but I just can't help it. I cannot get enough of this song and to be quite frank, it's flipping fantastic. Especially if you've had a stressful day. Sit back, relax and let the good times roll. 

Back to the 90s we go, with musical group, Portishead formed in the almighty year of 1991 (No prizes for guessing when I was born!)  

Their debut album Dummy was released in 1996, spawning three singles including Glory Box and selling more than 150,000 copies in the USA alone, having never toured there. The album was awarded the Mercury Music Prize award in 1995 and in 2003 was ranked no. 419 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The slow, sombre style of Glory Box is the perfect remedy for a mundane Monday. I hope you enjoy. 

Once more, I would love to know your comments and again, thanks to the lovely Tanja.

Vintage Sunday

What better way to spend your Sunday than at a Vintage Village. Oh my it was marvelous. I thought I'd actually died and gone to heaven then I realized I wouldn't be in heaven if I died so I realized it was real life and was even happier. 

Clare found this amzing little Vintage market thing going on today so a few girls headed to Stockport on a mission. It's probably the best one I've ever been to. I have to say I feel so much more satisfaction when I spend my money at these places. You can most likely guarantee no chance you will be walking and see someone else in the same outfit. The thought of how far the items have travelled, how many hands they have touched to now be in your own, the stories and adventures they may behold. I completely understand it's not for everyone, but then again theres lot's of things that aren't for me that I don't understand. To each their own. Here are a few pictures from the day.

HOOOOOOOW crazy is this? Now if you aren't from the states or even from Arkansas then this won't really mean anything to you buuuut it's the Arkansas ... whats the word? I can't really pick a word to describe so I'll settle with chant. Of all the ties, in all the locations it was there where I was. It's true that the simplest things can make your day. I was so chuffed. I don't really think the girls really understood or got what it even means lol. 

Nooow. As we were leaving I saw a stall with loads of things I want to keep my eye on and am interested in so I asked the lady for her card and then noticed some suitcases. I asked her how much, thinking it would be ridiculous price. She said a tenner. I literally said I'll take it before she finished her sentence. I was so excited and then before I paid I thought this has got to be too good to be true. So she opened it up and let me look at it inside and out and it's in practically perfect condition. Nice tweedy inside. 
I'll be travelin in style. 

Here's me awkwardly posing for this photograph with my suitcase from Ooohbetty
Ps. Yes it's june and yes I'm wearing a coat. 
Get me home NOW. lol 
In this picture I look like if I click my heels twice I'll be back in arKANSAS lol 

All of my lovely treasures from the day. :) 
 I would like to state that although the top right shirt looks as though it's Hawaiian I can confirm it is nothing of the sort. Although bottom left is indeed a mens shirt. Am I bothered. Au contraire. 

Hope your weekend was as succesful as mine. 
I'm glad my husband is back. As much as I like sprawling out across the bed, I like having a human heater to sprawl across. Is sprawl a word? Is that how you spell it? 
Sleep tight bloggins. 
Here's to a new week.
