Lots to Love

[MEDIA=3] 

Today was just wonderful.

  • I tried a friend’s recipe for Cider-Roasted Pork Loin. It. was. wonderful. You have to try it! I’ve never had better.
  • While cleaning up from the wonderful dinner, my sweet hubby reintroduced me to an old friend — the little-bit-crazy-but-wholly-genius Glenn Gould playing The Well-Tempered Clavier. Of course, I never played that prelude that fast. But . . . wow — it was so long ago that I was a piano nerd. Grant said he’d never seen me stop and listen to music like that. Usually I multi-task. Someday when we get a piano, that is what I’d spend my idle moments playing. I still have all my piano music.
  • Gavin danced while we listened to the rest of The Well-Tempered Clavier. There’s nothing quite like watching a newly-19-month-old “interpret” baroque piano music.
  • At the same time, Isaac hunted down all the “A” magnets on the fridge and spelled out his name over and over. Learning is so fun.
  • And I started reading a book that is oh-so-controversial. But it seems pretty reasonable so far. 🙂

  1. I was underwhelmed by the book. Lots of great potential, but his logic is fluffy and not very tight. Now, get some books from amazon.com on “Radical Orthodoxy” and I’d love to hear your thoughts.

  2. Cool, Michael. I’ll do that! Admittedly, I’ve only read through Chapter 0. Which I found kinda funny. And I empathized. ::shrug:: I switch between that and my N.T. Wright Paul for Everyone. 😀

  3. Generous Orthodoxy is good in that it made me think that the way I was taught growing up did not have all the answers. N.T. Wright is better though.
