Sorting...and then some

I decided to add a little music list. Some of the songs are pretty good, a few might be a bit sentimental on my part...I couldn't resist adding Totoros and Never Ending story. I really love adding these music bits on here. At first, I thought it would be annoying but when I look at other people's blogs, I like hearing what people listen to. And if I don't care for it, I can turn the volume off. As long as it doesn't interfere with page loads...Anyway, I hope the music playing gives a nice Winery feel laced with humor and joy.

I also added a link to my book, Emily and Mr. Nelson, on the sidebar. I'm glad to see this one finished.

Now, onto some fun things. I visited Carolee's blog and found 8 wonderful things about her. And to my surprise, was asked to share some as well. We shall see what happens!
