Hooked up with Sault “5” and “7”

Big shouts to Deep Groove for the hookup on a used copy of Sault’s “5” and “7”. These two were out of print for a while, and then when they came back in they were import-priced (like, $45 per) and almost immediately sold out.

I try hard to support local shops for as much as I can manage and sometimes that goodwill is repaid by a heads up on some records I’ve been looking for.

These are great albums, if you haven’t heard them. 5-stars.

Snowy Sunday

That snow sky paid off, for a few hours anyway. I hustled out to get a fire started so I could drink some coffee in the snow.

We ended up with about 4 inches. This measurement was after it had been raining/sleeting a bit. It would have been a ton of snow if we’d gotten 5 degrees colder.

That morning coffee was the only time I left the house. I spent the evening working on this miso-marinated flank steak stir fry. It was a tasty but I already know what changes I’m making for next time.

Beer-in-the-snow postscript, because beer and firepits are like “peas and carrots”, as Forrest would say.
