Pamplemousse's Bazaar

Now that I am no longer suicidal with grief all the time, I fear that I will be going back to work soon but in the meantime, I am enjoying the peace and entertaining myself with these. This week, reading:

Brando Unzipped

Part V: Wolves of the Calla

About Grace

Beach Road

Whilst listening to this:

Ray LaMontagne

All the while smearing myself with this in order not to blind the skinny brown Californian when she arrives in 12 days!!!

I'm glad to hear you're getting some good reading in, listening to some music, and getting a tan! :)

Oh, and I'm glad to hear that you're not feeling awful all the time, too....funny how it sneaks up on you, isn't it?

Happy for you!

Put your feet up and enjoy those books. Sounds like a good idea. I need to read something that does not have "coping" or "infertility" in the title!

Although I LOVED the whole Dark Tower series, I didn't love Wolves of the Calla. But I did read Beach Road a few weeks ago and really like it.

oooh! I heart Ray LaMontagne. I saw him on an Austin City Limit show & could not believe THAT sound came from that man. He was so shy performing & even said that he would really like it if they would just turn off the lights so he could play in the dark.
Been thinking about you...

good stuff!

Are you reading all four simultaneously or in sequence? I sometimes pace myself with tough books by reading easy reads in bed at night, for example. I haven't read any of those - would you recommend one in particular (MUST stop buying books...)

I haven't read any of those! Please provide reviews when finished!

Glad to hear that you are getting some good reading in. Please do post some reviews. I haven't been able to get into anything good at the moment.

I totally just put Ray LaMontagne on my amazon wish list. I've heard that "saved by a woman" song and I kept meaning to look up who sang it. Thanks!
PS Glad to see the grief abating somewhat :)

I actually was going to comment on your most recent post, but there's something funky going on with it and I could add anything.

I'm so excited for your South African trip. I can't believe how close it is! I hope that the hammer doesn't treat you too badly.
