spring walks in the park

It's that strange time of year when, if you glance out a window, it still looks remarkably like winter, yet the weather is much warmer and little buds are sprouting here and there. The Husband, the Dog, and I have picked up our afternoon/evening walks in the park again, and once more I feel lucky to live so close to a protected greenbelt.

On another spring note, the Elfa closets I mentioned in a previous post went on sale, so we jumped at the opportunity and completely revamped the closet in the second bedroom. Eighteen drawers, 14 shelves, and two hanging rods later, we have a brand new closet! Prior to the installment, however, we had to do some massive spring cleaning, seeing as how we used that closet for storage. I did come across some hilarious photographs and keepsakes from years past though, which was quite entertaining.

ram on

I am happy to share something I discovered recently from Aquarium Drunkard. Apparently, some really fan-tastic bands from L.A. decided to re-record Ram, one of Paul McCartney's first solo records (one I quite like and tend to recommend to people, along with McCartney). Bands like The Parson Readheads and Frankel took part in this endeavor. I'm not normally into covers, but I listened to this record straight through, and there were very few tracks I took issue with. In fact, the entire thing is pretty darn good. Download away, people.
