mixtape 14: feel it all around

So I know that last week I was talking about making a Cure playlist, which I never did get around to. Then again, last week was also chilly and rainy.

Right now, not so much.

Yesterday afternoon, in fact, it got so hot (87° F) in my house that I resorted to wearing a swimsuit while was working. The swimsuit ended up coming in handy when I called the beau and convinced him to come home and have a margarita with me while laying on a blanket in the side yard before going back to work. Let’s just say that I was delighted to be reminded that there are actual benefits to working from home, after all.

But enough about silly indulgences.

I got a taste for sun and heat, and I want more. So I assembled the following mellow warm-weather grooves. If spring hasn’t quite yet sprung where you live, don’t worry. Put this on and think about what’s to come.

Unless you live south of the equator, in which case, uh, this mix is the perfect soundtrack for pulling your sweaters out of storage.

  1. That was a good playlist to start my day to. Thanks!

  2. I am saving this for tomorrow morning! (Also, I really need to figure out the coding problem I’ve been having with mixtapes so that I can start putting them up again.)

    i have been slacking because we’re moving and we can’t make a graphic and the sound card on my computer is busted and another excuse! but you’re inspiring me, miss lyn.

  4. I thought I was the only one to make a mix this week! I’m really enjoying this, and the promise of warm days!

  5. love this! also, super psyched for a all Cure mix!!!
