Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. At a time of year I rarely see either sunrise or sunset, I saw both in a single day. Dawn was pinkish, while the sun set more orangey.

2. I’m listening to the audiobook of Anne of Green Gables, and it’s clear from her pronunciation that the reader, Colleen Winton, is Canadian. Rudi noted that her voice reminds him of Colleen Dewhurst, who played Marilla in the wonderful tv movies. I don’t know if he’s right (it’s been several years since I last saw the show (Ooh! I should see if DCPL has a copy to borrow)), but she definitely does a fantastic job with Marilla’s part. She’s a very comforting companion during late-night chores.

3. My bathroom is very clean after a marathon scouring session.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

Oh, isn’t that audio of Anne marvelous? It made me love and listen to that whole series again. I only had Winton on the first book, but she was fabulous. Someday, you’ll come to PEI and hear the accent for real.

@raidergirl3: When I was looking for something to start late one night, I remembered your endorsement of this reader, so thank you for reviewing them on your blog. And, yes, PEI is one of those places I want very badly to visit. Maybe this coming year…
