It's been a busy week with not a whole lot of reading going on, what with book club; a baseball game; family spending the night Wednesday; Easter dinner shopping (it took four trips to different grocery stores to find strawberries for the strawberry pie!), cleaning, cooking, and the actual getting together with family and friends. I hope those of you who celebrate had a lovely Easter!
This Week I'm:
Listening To: I'll finish Middlesex this week and I'll be sad to be done with it.
Watching: Basketball, The Voice, and live rendition of "Jesus Christ Superstar." One of my all-time favorite musicals and, even though I felt some of the acting was a little weak, mostly I loved it.
Reading: Fingerprints of Previous Owners, which I completely forgot I was supposed to read for review a week and a half ago. Review soon!
Making: Layered lettuce salad, cheesy hash brown casserole, ham (well, Honey Baked ham made the ham, I just heated it up), strawberry pie, roasted asparagus, Red Drummond's chocolate French silk pie. I was concerned we'd run out of food because Miss H's boyfriend can put away a mountain of food but, of course, we had leftovers. Although, I wouldn't have complained if there had been more leftover potatoes!
Planning: I never got 40 Bags In 40 Days finished yet and with a quiet week this week, I'm hoping to get that done.
Thinking About: Gardening and changes in our landscaping.
Enjoying: Time with both The Big Guy's brother and his wife and my brother and his wife: two couple we really enjoy spending time with.
Looking forward to: BG has agreed to go through his clothes this week. Once he gets started, he's pretty good about getting rid of things so I'm looking forward to seeing a lot more room in my closet!
Question of the week: How are you keeping your spirits up during these wintery first days of spring?
