Wake Up to the Gifts


Did I say spring had come early to Sydney? Oops....spoke too soon. But - it's Sunday, so no need to go out in the rain, or even get up early. The dogs very kindly slept in too, in their cosy trampoline bed in the garage; the garden is being watered, and we moved our Sunday picnic to in front of the fire. Nice! Eliza bravely went to see her cousin play rugby ( rain does not stop play for rugby players). Reflections of a wet Sunday:
  • Listening to: Rufus Wainwright. I discovered him (belatedly) on a documentary about Leonard Cohen, "I'm Your Man". Great soundtrack.
  • Reading: Digging to America" by Anne Tyler. Fans of Anne Tyler will not be disappointed with this new book.
  • Watching: Series One of Six Feet Under on DVD. I have never caught any of this series on TV because it was on at a very late timeslot on Monday nights. Loving it!
  • Best Movie I've seen recently: Lucky Miles - an Australian movie about "illegal" immigrants told with pathos and humour. http://www.abc.net.au/atthemovies/txt/s1963611.htm

Glad you've got more rain.
I love Rufus and Six Feet under too. I need Series 3...
Rufus is the son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, nephew of Anna McGarrigle (or vice versa!) and he is the brother of Martha Wainwright. All very talented muso's. They put out a great family album- will send you the name or google it. He has a track on the film Moulin Rouge.
Loudon is a very funny songwriter- esp if you are a middle aged man- Richard loves his albums....
