Good morning darlings. Our backyard is clearing of snow; there are patches of green grass! I can't wait for the day they put the table and the chairs out in the garden, oh. (Come dine with me then!) I've been listening to lots of Aretha Franklin. And yesterday I cried (wept) when Taru Ratilainen sang in The voice of Finland. I just love her voice, there's so much soul. Singing like that wakes something up in me, a deep longing, a deep joy.
