Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it! We enjoyed dinner with my parents; my sister, her daughter, her husband and his parents. Everyone contributed and it was delicious. Easter really seems to kick off the lighter food eating season and I love the foods! My mom bought, and my brother-in-law built, for my dad some raised garden beds which the guys spent a couple of hours putting together and getting set up on the garden. It was a sunny day and we all enjoyed being able to spend some time outdoors.
This Week I'm:
Listening To: I started The Girl Who Played With Fire which is a little slow going so far, a lot of catching up new readers with the events of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Simon Vance is narrating and I love him as a reader but his Lisbeth Salander seems to have a Cockney accent. I'm not sure why they would not have gone with someone who could handle Swedish accents.
Watching: Basketball this weekend, The Voice, and Selfridge on PBS tonight.
Reading: I read a childhood favorite (and book on my Classics Club list), A Little Princess then moved on to something that couldn't be any more different, Alicia Nutting's Tampa, which is disturbing, to say the least. I'm also reading Anna Quindlen's Miller's Valley, which I'm enjoying every bit as much as I was hoping I would.
Making: Hmmm, it was a lazy week in the kitchen this week, some sandwiches, salads, soups. For Easter I did make a layered lettuce salad and a cheesecake.
Planning: Nothing on the calendar this week we have to do. We may just keep the calendar clear.
Thinking About: Gardening and bringing more color to our outdoors.
Enjoying: Having all three of my kids with us today for the holiday.
Feeling: Tired. Is it bedtime yet?
Looking forward to: Getting my hair cut and colored this week. It's way past time!
Question of the week: What do you most look forward to in the spring?
