May is generally the month where my regular job winds down a bit and my summer music winds up. I'm really excited to announce that I have some big plans this summer BIG. Here it is...I'm heading into the recording studio to record a Christmas CD. I'm pretty excited about it and I hope you will be, too. The plan is to have it done this season. Keep your fingers crossed! If you have a favorite Christmas song that you want me to consider recording let me know. Other things I'm excited about this month: Fit Flops (for your feet) Yep. FIT Flops. The merchandise tag says that they are supposed to give your legs a workout while you wear them. We'll see. We'll see. Def Leppard (the band). I wore out my cassette tape of Pyromania in high school. I had the chance to hear them at the Spokane Arena a few weeks back and it was like I was 16 again. I do believe that I may have made the "Rock On" symbol with my both of my hands which I raised in the air while screaming like a groupie, but there's no real proof. Once (the movie). If you haven't seen it yet, it's brilliant. My husband and I made a road trip to Missoula, MT to catch the "stars" of the movie in a live performance. It's kind of like life imitating art...or the other way around. The Glass Castle (the book). It's a memoir that left me a bit devastated, but I still loved it. I heard the author speak recently at a luncheon. I met her for two seconds. She signed my book. I loved that, too.
