Good stuff.
Haven't read those books.

Great pictures before...you live in God country. I'm envious!

Cheers.

I want to see Once in a serious way, the soundtrack blows me away.

Thanks for stopping by blog! My dog (Oscar) is a Shia Tzu (sp?). He is mostly hair, and yeah, a lot of people think he is a cat in that pic.

Peace!!!

I want to see Bella! I remember you talking about it.
Priya loved Marley and Me and has been telling me to read it.
Of course, I love Lynden!

Marley and Me is def. a winner. I loved The Mermaid Chair (by S.M.Kidd) waaaaay better. I would also recommend "Justice in the Burbs" by Will and Lisa Samson. Music for me would have to be David Crowder's Remedy. Really good.

Top music (not cds since I'm mostly an iPod girl these days): Rosie Thomas, Patty Griffin, Ryan Adams

Books: A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, A Ring of Endless Light by Madeleine L'Engle, and Bono: In Conversation with Michka Assayas.

Oooh ... thanks for all the suggestions.

There's not much that makes me happier than finding new music or good books!

Loved Bella. It was embarrassing how I boo-hooed at the end. Just got Once via Netflix today and can't wait to read it. Uh, see it. I'm tired. :)

Becky said...

It's okay, Fay, I cried in Bella too.

And come back and tell me what you thought of Once.
