These records, formerly (according to the stickers on the covers) belonging to a certain Miss Emily May Ross of Washington DC, were purchased for $2.00 each yesterday at an antique store downtown, which is where I found myself during my walk. The covers were so fabulous that I couldn't pass them up. Last night after dinner, we listened to Music for Relaxation, and it wasn't bad! Very relaxing, actually. Looking forward to listening to the others. By the way, I don't know about y'all, but that is not what I look like when I read. Where are her old lady reading specs and her housepants?! (You can click on the picture for a closer look at the album covers. LPs are awesome.)
P.S. There is an eerie resemblance between the man on the Flamenco album cover and Kev's dad.
I really enjoyed my walk yesterday. I went to the antique store and a used book store that opened just before Christmas called Books and Other Found Items. Cool little shop. Please go there so it doesn't close down. When I got home, I sat outside on the porch and read. Today it is cold and REALLY windy. No porch time or afternoon strolls today. But I did go to Curves. I told y'all I would. More exercise in 2012.
This morning, I finished my Stephen King book. It was so great. I couldn't stop reading it. I stayed up way too late every night this week because I couldn't put it down. Last night, I was stirring dinner with one hand and holding my kindle in the other - Reading While Cooking - because I had to know what was going to happen next. Now, I'm not going to tell you what the book was about, but I will say it was a premise that could have gone horribly horribly wrong. But it didn't. And even though the ending was a little "Hollywood," at least there WAS an ending. It didn't leave me hanging and make me mad as books so often do. I am 100% satisfied with this book. That almost never happens. So, props to Stephen King, and thanks again to Jeff for the recommendation. Time to start another book, but not before I get something going on my knitting needles. More knitting in 2012.
And less computer time in 2012, so I am signing off for the long holiday weekend. Happy MLK! See you next week.
