and enjoyable! Have you ever, while searching for something on the ‘web’, run into a site that you probably wouldn’t have if you hadn’t stumbled onto it? (boy, that was a strange sentence!) Anyway, my point is: I found a site that deals in all sorts of Native American craft items (that’s not what I’m writing about, however…). At this site, the first time I came across it, they had a embedded music ‘stream’ which played Native American music and I became fascinated with it. Time passed, I forgot about the site and the music. Yesterday I remembered the music but couldn’t remember the name of the person who was singing it…but my dear husband did! The singer/performer/flute player extraodinaire is named Robert “Tree” Cody, son of Iron Eyes Cody, actor and magnificent person. Robert has a site of his own and you can listen to four excerpts of his music (or purchase some if you wish!). He has an excellent singing voice as well as flute playing.
If you’d like to peruse either of the sites above mentioned, go to:

(Native American Craft site):
The person at Grizzly Mountain Arts site is very nice; I emailed them yesterday asking for the music site and she explained that she hated to remove the music but the site maintaining the music feed kept having technical difficulties. I spent considerable time just looking at all the many very creative items made and sold on their site: tatting shuttles, pineneedle baskets, crochet hooks…it is all very lovely, from the presentation to the quality of each item; I’m sure you’ll enjoy looking, too.
It’s been a few days of ‘scorcher’ heat here (in the 90’s and VERY HUMID). Our air conditioner compresser (?) is out so the air conditioner just runs and doesn’t blow any cold air…sigh (of course we turned it off…no sense running it and building up the gas bills, eh?). We had a big thunder storm last night which was nice to hear but only managed to add to the levels of humidity and not decrease the heat levels much. (Can you tell I’m spoiled with having had air conditioning?) Brings back the old expression: “Men sweat, Ladies GLOW!” (and BOY, am I GLOWING these past few days!!!).
I’ve decided to ‘treat’ myself (a very rare thing which only happens about every 4-6 YEARS)…I’m taking myself to the movies! The new movie: “Julie & Julia” is out and I’m going to the 12:40 p.m. showing (in about 42 minutes!). My husband’s at work, middle son is off with his friends going to a water park, youngest is at missions camp…I’m free!!! I’ll let you know what I thought of the movie, but I’ll tell you that being the mother of an executive chef…I’m partial to cooking shows/movies!
Hope you have a great (“GLOW”-free) day!
ADDENDUM: The movie was GREAT! Being it was a matinee, there were probably only around 20 people in the theater with me, but I had a great time enjoying all the wonderful shots of great food; Merle Streep did a magnificent job of portraying Julia Child and Stanley Tucci was very good, also. After the movie I decided to try a new (opened about 4-5 months now) pizza place which advertises 99 cent slices of pizza. I ate it in my car and it’s a good thing I grabbed a few more napkins as it was VERY greasy! (Pepperoni & cheese) The owner told me it was all fresh ingredients and I know that fresh pepperoni CAN be greasy, but this was ‘above and beyond’…can’t say that I will ‘sing the praises’ of this place to my friends. Oh well, it filled my tummy and was a large slice, I’ll give them that. Stopped at the library to return 2 books and picked up 2 “Friends of the Library” used sale books: Ken Follett and Tom Clancy (I do love a good mystery!). The last ‘hurrah’ for my ‘day to myself’ ended with me stopping at Tim Horton’s for a large iced coffee w/double cream. Got it home and it was a bit lacking in ‘something’, so I added a bit of Hershey’s chocolate syrup and it’s now ‘keeping me company’ while I type here. Great afternoon; very ‘liberating’ for a ‘housewife/Mom/Grandmother/stay-at-home person’…I had a good time!
