Today, I brought three holiday cd's to work: Carpenter's Christmas Portrait, Santa's Top 10 Favorites, and Midnight Clear. The Carpenters album has been a favorite since my mom bought it when I was a wee girl. Karen Carpenter singing "Ave Maria" is the essence of an angel.
Was thrilled to get a response email today from Lisa Kivirist of Inn Serendipity (Wisconsin). I'm awaiting her book "The Rural Renaissance" (co-authored by her husband John Ivanko). I anticipate spending many cold winter days cuddled up and poring over the contents.
