we are renovating. it seems that paint fumes have gone to my head because i have the attention span of a gnat. needless to say i won't be reading war and peace this year. blog posts are more my speed these days. i read this one on health and diet (and life) last week and have been thinking about it ever since. i don't know if i agree with the thesis, but it is thought provoking and worth reading. in fact, all the posts are

listening: i'm not the one who is going to typically introduce you to new good songs. i don't know who is cool or hip or innovative. i do, however, know what i like; stuff that you want to sing along to, stuff that makes you feel happy, and stuff that makes you want to dance. i have been listening to firefly by owl city on repeat for about two weeks. so your self a favor and listen to it now and then write me back and tell me how you think this song sounds like love (because it totally does).

watching:if your idea of a good time is watching a masterpiece theater mini-series, you will love this new HBO mini-series about john adams. michael and i started watching it last night so far my opinion is: john adams is cool and thomas jefferson drools.

eating:romesco dip. lots of it. i've had garlic breath (etc) for two weeks. so does michael. it is worth it.

what are you reading, listening, watching and eating?

The John Adam's mini-series was excellent. Great choice for J.A I also enjoy a good romesco dip, but then again I love garlic.

reading: The Book Thief - excellent, unusual and unforgettable metaphors - a true wordsmith - tragic yet beautiful characters - I wish I had written that book. Also enjoyed The Help.

listening: conference talks

watching: the Lemon Tree - in Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles.

eating: spicy nuts (mix egg whites, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 T cinnamon and 1 tsp cayenne pepper. Stir in variety of mixed nuts - I prefer pecans, almonds and cashews. When thoroughly coated, pour onto a cookie sheet that you have greased - bake at 300 F for one hour stirring every 15 minutes. Cool thoroughly before packaging. Enjoy.
