I finally broke down & bought it. This book is peaches and divine cream. I’ve already been able to read through the first two songs. (and you all know that I’m the worst sight-reader in the universe)  Lovely arrangements, and very true to the original music. I love it. Hooray Fernando!! P.S. also, if any of you haven’t seen the Ortega’s new baby, you should go see her at fernandoortega.com

Drool

Most of you probably know of Williams-Sonoma, the ultra-pricey, ultra-heirloom, ultra-useful kitchen store. I’ve been to their Rancho Cucamunga & Spokane outlets, and it’s an absolute dream. *sigh* So, how on earth could someone even consider getting any of that gorgeous Le Crueset or All-Clad? Well, one thing is to set up a registry. It’s lots of fun, and it doesn’t have to be a bridal registry. Birthdays count, too. So, even if I don’t get any, at least I have a compiled “drool list.” Williams-Sonoma

Some of you probably know that for a while I have been romancing the idea of a new bike.  I believe that I am coming closer to a decision. If any of you have input on the color choice, fill in the poll. Ok, here are my options:

The King and I

My filter is still not allowing me to post pictures, so this place could be pretty boring for a while. Consider yourself warned.

Megan recently loaned me the 1956 musical, The King and I. As musicals go, I would say that it’s one of the best. (that I’ve seen) Yul Brynner is fabulous as the way-too-self-important king, and sings a hilarious number in the beginning of the movie. The gold-plated everything, flamboyant costumes, and Siamese theater is quite entertaining. (not to mention all those adorable little Asian kids)

It looks like the Kendrick brothers have for us another winner! I loved Flywheel (big news from a gal who is none too crazy about the used car business) and Facing the Giants was…. well, not my favorite, but still good. Check out the Fireproof trailer at fireproofthemovie.com

Mother’s Redemption

Any of you who have received Mother Earth News knows that through the years, it has gotten more and more liberal. I am delighted to report that, even though it is still definitely left-wing in it’s political viewpoints, the magazine is beginning to reincorporate useful information; a sweet relief from the poor-excuse-for-an-article-schmooze-fests about “why I love my Prius,” and other eco-junk. My latest issue has a wonderful piece on making cheese at home. Whether or not I am smart enough to utilize that good info is yet to be seen. I firmly believe that dirt-worshippers should not be the only ones concerned about our environment, and I appaud Mother Earth News for making their articles worthwhile again.
