Birthday Loot

Susan decided to trade me in for a newer model: 34-year-old me instead of 33-year-old me. This is a good thing, since I don't know where to find 33-year-old me anymore. Here's my list of birthday loot.

Books:
  • Sherman Alexie: War Dances (from Susan)

  • Best Easy Day Hikes: Sacramento (from my brother)

  • Amy Bloom: Away: A Novel (from my parents)

  • William Cullina: Native Ferns, Moss, and Grasses: From Emerald Carpet to Amber Wave: Serene and Sensuous Plants for the Garden (from my parents)

  • Sadegh Hedayat: The Blind Owl (from my parents)

  • Arthur R. Kruckeberg: Introduction to California Soils and Plants: Serpentine, Vernal Pools, and Other Geobotanical Wonders (from my parents)

  • Reader's Digest New Fix-It-Yourself Manual (from my parents)

  • Shawna Yang Ryan: Water Ghosts (from Susan)

  • Douglas W. Tallamy: Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants (from Susan)

  • Tung Yueh: The Tower of Myriad Mirrors (from my parents)

  • Esther Tusquets: The Same Sea as Every Summer (from my parents)


CDs:
  • Scarlett Johansson: Anywhere I Lay My Head (from my parents)

  • Kashmir: No Balance Palace (from my parents)


Other:
  • Moon DVD (from my parents)

  • wildflower seeds: Clarkia amoena, Lasthenia glabrata, Linum lewisii (from Susan)

  • two circular tablecloths that I plan to make into circle skirts (from Susan)

  • a stepping stone with butterflies carved and painted on it (from my parents)

  • note cards with photographs of kittens on them (from Susan)

  • a blank book with a picture of lavender on the cover (from Susan)


I asked for the two CDs because David Bowie was a guest singer on both, and for the DVD because it was directed by his son. I asked for the book Water Ghosts because I went to high school with the author.
