My 2023 song-a-day playlist on Apple Music!…

This team is ridiculous. 9-0 in league play, no goals allowed. 11-0 in total, with two goals allowed. Some great role models for Z to model her game after in the coming years.

This city has experienced far too much heartbreak in the last year.

My 2022 song-a-day playlist is complete! This was honestly one of the best things I did last year. It brings back memories every time I listen.

A 2023 version will be shared once there are a bunch of tracks. 😄

Give me a follow, if you are on!

A drink (or two) with the Mrs at a fabulous new neighborhood bar, recently opened by an acquaintance. Can’t beat this within walking distance.

Picked up some new books based on various recommendations I’ve been seeing on 🎉📚

Thankful to get out of the house after the blizzard and do some winter hiking and snowshoeing with the Mrs.

Wrote a little summary of my takeaways from reading Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman:…

Day after the blizzard. Local grocery store is open and queued up to buy groceries. Feel apocalyptic today.

Mother Nature knows how to do it: we crushed the blizzard record in Buffalo (since at least 1950): 37 consecutive hours of blizzard conditions. ‘85 was 16 hours and ‘77 was 12 hours. Glad it’s over! Mid 50’s and thunderstorms forecasted for next weekend. 🤪

At least there ain’t no hole in the washtub. 🦦

Whelp this blizzard has been something. It’s been insanely windy since Thursday overnight (70 mph gusts), constant whiteouts since Friday AM, -10 windchill, and we’ve gotten about 2 ft of snow - with drifts over 5 feet. Thankfully we are home, safe and warm. Hoping it ends soon!

The Cymande re-issue came! Gonna be listening to this a lot today.

Finished reading: Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman 📚

So good. Definitely a lot to think about.

Nilüfer Yanya - Full Set From The Basement

Her album Painless is my fave from 2022. Give her a listen!

Tired boy

I’ve got my “Best of 2022” album list up on Album Whale! 🎧

Thanksgiving observations

Some observations from today: I am so thankful my dad made the trip to share dinner with us. Our first holiday since my mom passed at the end of the summer. ❤️ Really thankful for the wife and kids. They are great all of the time, but they really made today an enjoyable day all around. 🥰 I am firmly on Team Sides. Wasn’t into turkey this year and enjoyed the taste test of the vegan “turkey” breast we got from Aldis.
