Happy Saturday

Here's what's making me happy today:

Sunbathing Dogs

Gorgeous Weather

Spring Flowers

Hummingbirds at the Feeder

And fado, my current musical obsession
Carminho's voice makes me want to get on a plane and fly to Lisbon NOW. 
It's hard to believe she's only in her early 20's; she has such amazing passion.

With her signature long flowing skirts and closely cropped hair, Mariza is as beautiful to look at 
as she is to listen to.

Though more a mixture of flamenco and jazz than fado, Buika's music sits nicely alongside these 
other talented ladies. Her smooth, husky voice voice sends chills down my spine. 
A great song for a relaxed weekend. Enjoy!

These are blissful shots, to be sure! What's happier than a sunbathing dog -- two sunbathing dogs : >

Nice pictures and post. There's something invigorating about good weather.

Doggies! They know where the good times are at. I wouldn't mind a bit of (sunscreen-protected) sunbathing myself.

If you're into fado, you should check out San Francisco-local band Judith and Holofernes; they do an English-language variation of fado. I saw them live once, and they're really good!

Mia: Thanks for the tip! I love that they're from SF too!
