This morning, I am loving Brett Dennen, likely because I saw him play at Minglewood last night, and it reminded me of how much I enjoy his folky, playful vibe. I’m unfamiliar with his newest album, but he played some songs off Hope for the Hopeless that I really like, so I was pleased. He didn’t play my favorite, nor did he sing the one I’m posting below, but the show was still great fun.
Speaking of Minglewood, I am loving Lucero’s recent announcement that they are playing a show there on December 22. Despite my lack of enthusiasm for and inability to fully embrace their new addition of brass instruments, I couldn’t possibly miss a show right here in my own stomping grounds. I’m still a Lucero fan through and through, and so I’ll be there, being particularly thankful when they bust out songs from their older albums. Added bonus – Amy LaVere is opening for them. Merry Christmas to me!
I am loving that the St. Louis Cardinals are playing in Game 1 of the World Series tonight. So much so, that I’m willing to skip my kickball game to watch. A few weeks ago, we weren’t even sure if they’d get the wild card spot, and now they are battling it out for the national title. What fun! The boyfriend is a huge fan, and I’m a supportive girlfriend, so GO CARDS GO!
And finally, I’m loving the space heater that is tucked under my desk and blowing hot air on my feet this very minute. I seriously use this thing year round, and my work happiness pretty much depends on it. In the past, I worked for a company that didn’t allow space heaters, and looking back, I think that was one of the deciding factors in my leaving for bigger and better things. Now, I’m settled in a lovely office that allows personal comforts such as warming devices, and I am grateful for it. With the cold weather that is currently blanketing the city, I’d be a downright mess without a constant source of direct heat. It’s the little things. Here I am at work, space heater on full blast:
