It's a weekend meme.
So, what are you and your family currently reading, watching, and/or listening to?
On Thursday I cracked open, The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. Can't believe I haven't read this one yet.
The Wildflower (20 mths old) immediately enjoyed her next Julia Donaldson, The Gruffalo. With her usual wonderful rhythm, she has this little one's attention. I enjoy this one as well, and the monster isn't too scary for the little ones, possibly....
It's rare for me to fill this one in. But this last week I've been floating on the caresses of famous arias, as I bake and bake and bake...
I couldn't call myself a Music Person, I'm visually inclined and enjoy silence too much. But I love music like the average person. And classical pieces always, without fail, move my soul. Sometimes it's the meaning, usually it's the wonder of a melody or the aching beauty of a single note. Tears, goosebumps... it's both exhausting and fulfilling.
Song to the Moon, Rusalka, Dvorak
Rusalka pleas to the moon to tell the prince of her love for him.... don't miss the 2nd half....
And I can also tell you what I'm not listening to.... I've hidden the Birthday Song CD that came with The Gruffalo book far away behind other things. Brings chills down my spine. What can I say - children's songs brrrrr.
Very naughty of me, I watched episodes 8 & 9 of Eastwick. Oooh, the suspense!
I indulged in some period drama with Cranford. Didn't want it to end. Would love an ongoing period series.
And I could't believe, after just bringing out the Gruffalo, discovering that they were airing the animated version on Xmas day in the UK! Just two days to wait, and there it is on youtube.
A quiet week online, mostly visiting regular blogs for holiday wishes.
