Paul Simon. he is appearing to me in dreams now. (more on this tomorrow.)
Finding Nemo. haven’t watched this one in a while. i get chills at the part where all the sea creatures and then birds are spreading the story of a fish looking for his son.
House – still watching Season One. Still creepy, but still so good.
in no particular order:
Ugly Betty (loved it. survivor lost me this week by playing the retrospective)
Heroes (okay THAT show is super good)
(i could keep going but i am a bit embarrassed that i really am watching this much tv)
Whoopi: Back to Broadway (for the second time. so good. so much heart in the midst of her words.)
this blog. i can’t wait to see heather’s fabrics when her line comes out with free spirit.
the poetry of Billy Collins from the collection in Questions about Angels. the poem "candle hat" resonated with me deeply last night as i had a poetry reading in the bathtub. (you can read it here.) when i finished it i exclaimed aloud, "fantastic." i couldn't help myself.
Ina Garten’s new cookbook. (she had me at the dedication.)
something that is, hate to say it, a secret. but i will share pictures after i give them as gifts. (because i am super excited about them.)
the way i can now post larger pictures because Deb taught me how to change the size of my blog columns (or whatever the technical term is). Thanks Deb!
stir fry…with some of our yummy veggies. this is how i will eat those “grassy” leafy greens.
the best peppermint ice cream. slow-churned low-fat dreyers. it tastes like the “real” thing. love it!
green tea. green tea. and some more…green tea.
my brother’s experience at the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC this week. his band, Daytime Volume, was on the front page of the intermission section of our hometown paper (read it here). i can’t wait to tell you how to buy your own copy of the CD that will be released in January – stay tuned. (if you click on their name above you can hear a few of their songs. good stuff.)
a visit from some dear friends…in just a few short days (hours really).
about how sweet jonny is to help me clean the house. thank you my dear.
about how i work for such an incredible woman. having a boss you admire and respect (and she doesn't care that you work in your pjs because you work from home) is more than a good thing. it is a great, fantastic thing.
flannel pajamas, hot cocoa, saturday college football, sunflowers, the colors of fall, fudge, stripey socks, and pumpkins.
