Life is good, don't get me wrong! But work is all about contracts and budgeting, the weather is threatening to turn snowy (again. I'm pretty much done with snow this year, I have to admit.), and my Lenten disciplines are rendering my life into a plodding sack of snooze.
And I'm not complaining.
The season will be under way in the blink of an eye, and my life will not be my own for several months this summer. I love the summer - the bustle, the people, the crazy pace! But I tend to stockpile sleep and solitude as much as I can in the winter, (like the Polish bear that I am. Whoa, where did that come from? Weird.) and the cold has made my couch my own personal paradise.
Did I mention I'm done with the cold, too? I'm ready for a little bit of this in my life. Warm breeze, sunshine. (Ducks optional, but encouraged.)

- Relationships. (I'm watching the cat bait the dog...the fear is gone, after 2+ years! Next step? Cuddling. But we're probably years away from that, too.)
- Wool socks.

- New tunes. Am such a new fan of stereogum! In fact, here's one a friend passed along:
