Random Thoughts

Good Morning lovelies.

Writing this post from my bed, snuggled with my cat Zoey, drinking coffee and looking out the window at the already winter wonderland of Minneapolis and listening to the Barr Brothers. 

I went to see the Barr Brothers last night at the Cedar and honestly, it was one of the most soul feeding shows that I've been to in quite some time. The musicianship was incredible. The music was just beautiful, the lyrics, the sound filled up the space and I think everyone in the crowd was completely wow'ed. I won't hesitate to see them again anytime that I can. 
Favorite Song from the entire set was: How the Heroine Dies 

Oh! I do have to mention that I saw the New Pornographers earlier in the week which was also an inspired show but in a different way. Neko Case and the set was perfection. Super high energy show, fun crowd, great time. Favorite Song from the Set: Adventures in Solitude. 

Winter arrived in Minnesota in a hurry this past week. Its so easy to forget the magnificent Autumn that we had when the snow and cold temps come. There was so little transition time this year between the seasons. I can't deny that I was a bit crabby this week - I feel like it always takes me a week or two to embrace the cold. Hopefully I am nearing the tipping point between crabby and embracing - feels like it is close. 

Not much else new - lots of shows this week: Bleachers with Wild Cub, Stars, First Aid Kit. Looking most forward to First Aid Kit in the mainroom at First Avenue. Will try to remember to post a review. 

Relationship status: Disappointed. Winter weather meant no visit from Nebraska special someone this weekend. Hopeful for a visit next weekend but he hasn't committed to that yet and I'm not going to beg for a visit. Logistics of living 6 hours away are causing a strain I think. Not seeing each other for weeks is causing a strain. That being said, I have no interest in dating at the moment - just no energy for it. We will see what happens - the best course of action is to let the universe dictate what happens next. 

All that being said, after all the annoyances and gripes, Life is ultimately good and I am blessed and I need to make sure I focus on that fact on a daily basis. 

Cheers to a new week! Lets make it a fabulous one! 


  1. I'm so happy I discovered you recently. Your pics on Insta make me so jealous--I love live music, but don't get out as much any more. And winter takes s bit of would have been nice if we actually had a November instead of jumping right into January! :)

    1. You are so sweet! :) I'm happy we discovered each other!
      Don't feel jealous - I'm sure there are many things about your life that I would be envious of. Thanks for taking the time to comment - and if you ever want to go to a show or coffee, let me know! :)

  2. Following you on IG (@lovelystill) and now I find you have a blog AND awesome taste in music?! Love First Aid Kit. Hope to see them live sometime!

    1. Thanks for your lovely comment! Isn't it fun discovering people with kindred tastes musically or otherwise on social media? Will let you know how the First Aid Kit show is tonight :)
