Listening and Watching

I have my weekend all planned out now that the Jacqueline Kennedy CDs and book set have arrived from Amazon.   I'm going to be a good multi-tasker and listen to the CDs while having a cocktail or two.... and tidying up the house.... and decluttering some rubbermaid containers .....and sorting through some miscellaneous sheet music.

Oh, and I see Steel Magnolias is on the TV Guide this weekend...better watch that too! :)

Have a great weekend!

  1. That sounds like a great weekend, uttering round the house, a cocktail or two and something new to listen to or watch - how perfectly cosy!

  2. I saw the promotional TV spot for these CD's and I loved Jackie's smooth soft voice. I had forgotten what an intelligent woman she was. I remember her face and her fashion and how gracious she was...
    I hope that you will let us know how you enjoy these.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Tabs - Ahhh it's been so nice to finally sleep in this morning and not be rushing around!

    Hostess - Wasn't Jackie one of those people you wished you could have met? I'm fascinated by her and her life, read many books about her and of course I loved her fashion style too. Thanks for the comment!

    Andela - thank you! I am off to check out your blog shortly! :)

    LatteLisa - Thanks Lisa, I really needed a weekend to relax, unfortunately my work week was insane!

    Debby - Oh I will for sure! I'm about to pop in the first CD to listen to while having my morning coffee! :)

  7. My mother went to her local B&N looking for these but couldn't find them. I think she ordered them from Amazon. How are they? It's been interesting to hear some of the comments she made about LBJ. I'd read that she used to privately refer to him and Ladybird as Colonel Cornpone and his little pork chop. Ouch!

  8. After being really excited about the series, I forgot all about getting the book.
    Now I hope I remember the CD's!

  9. F & F - it was wonderful!

    Jill - Ohmigoodness, I completely LOL'd at that barb from Jackie! Goodness! LOL So far the tapes are good, I made my way through half of them on the weekend. Will definitely do a follow-up post asap!

    Annie - The book and CDs are part of the same set, which is nice. I found it was helpful to listen to the tapes and then go back and read the parts I'd listened to as the transcripts are typed out in the book.
