Some Scrambled Thoughts

Sadly, I have no shows to review today. Sigh. I love Monday nights, except when it's the winter break. So, today I thought I'd share some random thoughts with you.

First of all, I got a great review today on Pocket Full of Posies, and you can read it here  It was a great way to start out my day. Thank you Rachel!

I've been reading Secrets by Erin Klingler and it is so good! The plot is intricate and the characters have some great depth to them. I'm about halfway through and thinking I might curl up this afternoon and read another chapter. Or five.

I've also been trying some cookie recipes from Pinterest and seriously, I must be picking terrible recipes or doing something wrong because they never look like the picture.  My boys still eat them, though, so they can't taste that bad, right?

My little girl looked up at me today and said, "Mom, do you know what you're good at?" And since she's been a witness to my craft and baking fails lately, I was afraid, but I said, "What?" and she smiled really big and said, "Sharing. You're a good sharer." And I think my heart melted on the spot. I will take being a good sharer any day of the week.

I've also been drinking a lot of hot chocolate until I feel all sloshy inside. I think my new favorite is candycane hot chocolate, but I saw a raspberry cheesecake flavor in the store yesterday that I want to try.

So what have you been up to lately? Any news/thoughts/opinions to share?

My random thought of the day is that I have been really enjoying Christmas music lately. Jewel has a new one out and I dig the Kelly Clarkson one, too. Of course, I have my old favorites - John Denver and the Muppets, The Carpenters, Mariah Carey, Peanuts, Amy Grant, Harry Connick Jr. I just heard a Josh Groban rendition of O Holy Night (arguably my favorite of the holiday songs) and it so majestic and powerful, I was practically in tears. (In my car. Not great.)

Surprisingly good: the duet album from last year with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Really good vocals and guest stars. You know, they go together like shama lama lama lama ka dippity dip de do. (I should probably look up the lyrics on that.)

I've heard good things about the Josh Groban song. I need to look that one up. And crying in your car? Was it a crowded parking lot? If not one saw it didn't happen, right? :)
