1. The cover is off of my scooter, and it’s ready to ride.
2. The house has been cleaned out, and the storage is full of things ready for our yard sale.
3. The dog’s supply of Frontline is stocked and ready to do its job for the season.
4. Various suntan lotions are out and begging to be used.
5. My new portable turntable is excited about entertaining us on our amazing back porch.

1. The sun is shining into my house and coaxing me to clean it:)
2. The tulip festival http://www.tulipfestival.org/ is in full swing. We plan to go soon.
3. We went wading a few weeks ago, on the first day of flip flop weather. Boy was the water cold!!!
4. The back door is standing open today to let in the fresh air.
5. I’m making summer plans. It must be spring.

1. we’ve planted sunflowers and they are popping up all over the place!
2. spring in atlanta is gorgeous with low humidity and beautiful days nice enough to open the windows.
3. flip-flops and sandals are back in.
4. the thick green pollen has come in all its fury and been washed away by rain.
5. ive gone ahead and got my summer highlights ahead of schedule!

there are no traces of spring around here. none. nada. NOTHING. just cold and rain and blustery wind. I repeat: cold, rain, and blustery wind. I’m going to try very hard to find five hints of spring. it’s not going to be easy:

1. I am wearing dr. scholl’s sandals twice a week now. sort of the ‘if you build it, they will come’ mentality. um, not really working.
2. once a week, the sun comes out. for about five minutes. which is better than nothing and can only mean that spring is on it’s way. hoping for something more like ten minutes a week.
3. we are wearing two layers of clothing instead of three.
4. tulips and daffodils are blooming. despite the freezing cold temperatures and occasional hail storms.
5. that’s it. I’m tapped.

enjoy a little Matisyahu, “King Without a Crown.”

(indie folk group, She & Him)

one artist you should be listening to and five reasons why:

meridith

She & Him

1. Featuring “indie folkie” M. Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel (remember her from Elf?) the sound has been compared to great 70’s AM Radio with throwbacks to Dusty Springfield and Linda Rondstandt.
2. There’s something very nostalgic, warm and soothing about Zooey Deschanel’s voice.
3. Even though there’s a bit of a twang here and there and it’s not even enough to turn off even my distaste for country music, folk music and the like.
4. Their first album, “Volume One” is a great soundtrack for Spring leading into Summer.
5. I like it and you might too.

Pigeon John
1. His enthusiasm is electric.
2. His songs make you dance.
3. His songs make you laugh.
4. He’s a fool (the good kind)
5. Every once in awhile he pulls out these amazing pearls of wisdom about Jesus.

I *heart* Pigeon John.

kristen

Astronautalis
1. Intelligent lyrics
2. Unique sound
3. Artistic delivery
4. Addictive production
5. Genuine music
