So far today I have managed to finish approximately half my list of things to do. Which isn’t so bad, since the day is about half over. Can I keep up my momentum? Who knows! Here’s hoping as Christmas is looming and I have a ton of stuff to do.
Ha! The Stephen Colbert episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent is on right now. So funny to see him be all dramatic.
I was reminded by Rhi’s song of the day post that I’ve been meaning to post this forever: House of Regret – Wild Sweet Orange (click to download). I love this album (thanks, Rhi!!), and the more I listen to it, the more I hear something else I love. “Ten Dead Dogs” is an amazing song, but this week, “House of Regret” is winning me over, it is most especially the lines:
And you crawl up those steps and read yourself to sleep
Yeah, you crawl up those steps and sing yourself to peace
It’s raining. I am certainly not going to complain about too much rain. Especially after 18+ months of drought here. But man, GLOOMY. Also there is some sort of ice storm forecast, which means I may or may not get all my outside errands done. Or that I should rush out and do them now, in case tomorrow really is full of weather disasters.

I am so happy that you’re loving the Wild Sweet Orange album. I agree that the more I listen to it the more I find things to love about it. Also, my favorite song keeps shifting, which is always a good sign.
