Cross Creek

Right now it's early morning and I am blogging instead of folding the laundry. I don't plan to fold any laundry today either here at my own home or at my parents' home where I am caring for my grandmother. Nan is a good sleeper and loves to sleep in until nine every morning. This gives me the chance to run home for a couple of hours and do whatever needs doing...like blog writing.

We, Nan and I, spend much of our day reading. She is reading a Catherine Cookson novel and I am reading Cross Creek by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. Rawlings is perhaps more familiar as the author of The Yearling. Marjorie would have made a wonderful blogger. Cross Creek is the story of her life in Florida. Although not one bit politically correct, it is still rich and wonderful. It was, after all, written in a different time. Nevertheless, I'm loving it.

My book is a vintage volume purchased from Abe Books for a mere dollar. I love the heron embossed in silver on the cover.

Vintage books are lovely things!

One Chance

Isn't that a great title? It's Paul Pott's new cd title. I have listened to the selections from the cd repeatedly on *Imeem. I can't recommend that site enough lately. I have already purchased the cd from Amazon so I listen to that in the car and to Imeem when working at the computer. It's so soothing. For whatever reason, I don't seem able to cope with frantic or loud music right now. Mellow music like this is just what I enjoy most. You can find the selection in my profile, I believe. I hope that it works for you; if not, I hope that you will sign up at Imeem. It's free!
