Back in Woodstock...Armed With My Mixes

My hubby pulled through and made me two mixes this weekend. Here is the play list for Mix #1:
  1. Climbing To The Moon by The Eels
  2. Detlef Schrempf by Band of Horses
  3. Ramblin' Woman by Cat Power
  4. Absentminded Melody by Joel Plaskett
  5. The Dress Looks Nice On You by Sufjan Stevens
  6. Challengers by The New Pornographers
  7. The Funeral by Band Of Horses
  8. The Park by Feist
  9. 3 Speed by The Eels
  10. A Stranger's Car by Rickie Lee Jones
  11. (Some Song by Billy Bragg)
  12. Torn and Frayed by The Rolling Stones
  13. Lost Girls by Till and the Wall
  14. Traveler's Song by The Fruit Bats
  15. Toys by The Epoxies
They were wonderful companions on my rainy drive to Woodstock. I had did a lot of brainstorming during the 5 1/2 hour journey. These songs create the right mood. My imagination functions much better with good music as fuel. I'm a little tired at the moment, so you'll have to excuse my writing tonight.

We had a delightful day. Hubs and I met with some peeps at The Great Sage, which I've blogged about many times. It's vegan heaven. I enjoyed some chili, brown rice, and cornbread:) I dedicated a lot of time to my writing project this weekend and I am happy to report that I sent my first submission to my long-distance writing teacher today. I know that the numbers of words don't matter, but I was proud to have 4,419 words to show for my work this week. We'll see what she thinks.

I'm so close to being done with the Sookie Stackhouse series! Maybe tonight's the night that I say goodbye to Sookie (at least until the next book is released in May). I'm off to jot down the ideas that popped into my head during the drive. Until next time!
