5 things I am stoked about...



1)The book I am reading "The Birth House". What a gorgeous book! If you are having a baby, or have had one, or may have one in the future I really recommend it. It was such a thoughtful gift from a friend...

2)A few new artists I am planning to purchase new albums from. "Fleet Foxes" "Rachael Yamagata" and "First Aid Kit" Ive found all these through fav blogs...First Aid Kit actually has an amazing cover of a fleet foxes song on utube. Its amazing. They just look like a couple amateurs on a camping trip with a handy cam, and then you hear them sing!!!

3) a new place to hang on a cold Saturday! I discovered the parking lot on the north side of the river on memorial drive by the pedestrian bridge to Princes Island Park is free on weekends!!! This makes an awesome little outing for a Saturday, while waiting for daddy to finish work. Just far enough to have a brisk walk and get exercise, maybe a slide down the hill on a sled, and warm up at Eau Claire and run around on the indoor playground. Without the hot choc. this outing is also free!

4)My new electrolux vacuum. We bought a refurbished one from our vacuum store rather than buying a new cheaper one. The one we got is like 20 years old, but it is so well built the store will warranty it, and give us a refund if we want to bring it back and upgrade. After fixing our upright hoover twice, we figured it was worth it!

5)the curry book by Jody Vassallo. Now I am not a connoisseur of curries, but I am enjoying this book. I have spent a day at the local Chinese shop looking for kaffir lime leaves and ground lemongrass, and I love the made from scratch chili paste in this book. We are enjoying currys weekly, although I find they all taste MUCH better the next day, From now on I will make them the day before...

I LOVED the Birth House. I was asked to interview Ami McKay for FFWD but it turned out that I was going to be out of town at the time - so disappointing! For some reason I get really excited when ever I hear someone else say they love that book.

Its so great when a book like that brings people together. I am still reading it, but I am enjoying it so much I dont want it to end!
