The latest song I discovered on a Youtube video and am listening to over and over and over again: Close My Eyes by Daniel Schreck, which I found via this touching ad:
I don’t know whether it’s because I only got three hours of sleep last night or what, but there has been a lot of watching that video and crying today.
I’ve rediscovered the joy of listening to music, and have been enjoying finding great songs to listen to put on my iPod. I’d love to know: If you could tell me to download just one song to check out, of any genre, what would it be?
I noticed that the video above was produced by Grassroots Films. I’ve come across their videos online many times and have been amazed by the high quality of their work. Those guys are on fire. Has anyone seen their movie, The Human Experience? A preview is here:
If you’ve seen it, what did you think? If it’s half as good as their online videos, it must be great.
I am so excited. My husband just recently got reimbursed for a bunch of work he did a few years ago, and we decided to put the money towards hiring someone to help out around the house a few hours per week. It was a little tricky to figure out how to go about finding someone for that type of thing, but we ended up finding a wonderful lady who’s a parishioner at our church and who has already become a family friend. I am so, so grateful to be able to have that help.
Speaking of which, I’ve heard great things about Care.com for finding help with everything from babysitting to tutoring to senior care. Though I’ve never used it, a friend was telling me she had a great experience finding a babysitter through them.
This weekend we’ll celebrate my grandfather’s 95th birthday. He still lives on his own and is in great health. He’s also a self-taught gourmet cook, and loves nothing more than to cook for us. Even though it’s his birthday, he’ll be doing the cooking this weekend. Some of the recipes he’s created and perfected:
Other than going to my grandfather’s, my main plan this weekend is to squeeze in a little time to work on the book. I only have one or two more chapters to go before I’m finished with a rough first draft! There will be a lot of work to do after that, but it will be wonderful to at least have the basics down.
I look forward to reading your posts!
