In this week's newsletter: hedgehogs, kittens in dresses, the best roast chicken ever, and a birthday giveaway.
You may have seen this blog post where I was gushing over the new book Craft the Seasons by Nathalie Lété. If you did, you'll know I am totally smitten with her Instagram account. I'm glad I'm following her because I would never have known of her partnering with Paperless Post. Now I need to make up an event just so I can use one of her motifs.

Watching & Knitting

I was really surprised at how much I loved the documentary about Linda Ronstadt  The Sound of My Voice. I guess I never realized how much of a maverick she was.

In the mid-eighties, I waited tables at a small Mexican restaurant in the southern California mountains, and Canciones de Mi Padre and Trio were on heavy rotation. Hard to believe both those albums came out in 1987. People would always jump a little when she belted out the first two notes of La Charreada. It was fun to watch so we always made sure to have it at full volume. Her voice was crystal clear and powerful! 

Watch it on CNN or Amazon Prime
Canciones de Mi Padre, Linda Ronstadt 
Listen to La Charreada
Trio, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt
