a spring playlist & flashback

Spring doesn't technically begin until March 20th but here in Stillwater, today feels like a typical spring day. So I made a playlist on my itunes that reminds me of the awesome season.

*Anonanimal--Andrew Bird
*Hurricanes-Au Revoir Simone
*Churches Under The Stairs--Brendan Canning
*I Woke Up Today--Port O'Brien
*23--Blonde Redhead
*My Night with the Prostitute From Marseille--Beirut
*Through the Backyards of our Neighbors--Au Revoir Simone
*Stay Golden--Au Revoir Simone
*Sky Blue Sky--Wilco
*Impossible Germany--Wilco
*Not a Robot, But a Ghost--Andrew Bird
*My Love--The Bird and the Bee

I'd also like to mention that I've been making my zipper pouches for a year now! Here is my very first one that I made for Valentine's Day 2008.

And look at this snuggly from a year ago!! Awww, and our old loveseat. I miss that uncomfortable beauty.

Oh and also I had the flu a year ago!!

I have no idea why I'm reminiscing. Maybe because it's fun to see old pictures stored on my computer and see what I was up to a year ago.

What are you currently listening to? Or reading?

Enjoy your Sunday!


  1. i know a band called the bird and the baby :) i thought of that and then saw your lil sickly owl :) he / she looks like a baby all wrapped up :)

  2. heehee, that last photo, makes being sick look adorable! :D

    Listening to: 80's pop songs like Irene Cara's "What a Feeling" and Johnny Logan's "Hold Me Now". Hm. Makes me remember being very little.

    Reading: "The House of Mirth" by Edith Wharton but I threw it on the floor after reading derogatory comments about jews! I don't know what to do now. Can I ignore it since it's a classic? Apparently not.

    Last good read: "A Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers". Excellent, funny, interesting novel.

    And do read: "The Price of Water in Finistère" by Bodil Malmsten.

  3. hahah I love the sick owl!! how sweet!!! I am listening to the puppini sisters!

  4. I've been having fun putting my 80gig zune on random. i've got everything from new kids on the block to johnny cash to iron maiden to iron and wine.... :D

  5. i had the flu a year ago too...i'd BETTER NOT get it this year...!! i too, put my mp3 player on random, w/everything from ella fitzgerald to the donnas. reading "how to make people like you in 90 seconds or less" for a book club. i hope it works...

  6. I love The Bird and the Bee! I love their cover of "Tonight You Belong To Me" - they do it perfectly.

    Currently reading Possessing the Secret of Joy. It's intense!

  7. I love that zipper pouche! very adorable!

  8. I finished up reading The Reader last night. Easy read that I finished in two days.

    Listening too this very moment Adele - Crazy For You.

    It's fun to reminisce sometimes. :)

    Happy Monday!!
