I made Friendship Bread tonight--Lemon Poppyseed, Chocolate Coconut (umm, umm, good), Fruity Cinnamon, Raspberry Applesauce. I'm wrapping it up and putting it in the freezer for gifts. I hope I remember I did it!
It snowed here today. Many complaints were made on Facebook about the TV satellites not working because they were covered in the wet, white stuff. You would be proud--I did not say even once to quit griping and depending on the idiot box (as my dad used to say) and find a book. You big babies. But I didn't post it--admirable self restraint, if I do say so myself.
The Scholastic Book fair is over and done and packed up. We didn't make any money for the library but I did get to choose over $500 in free books. That's awesome since they are almost the only new books we will have this year because of the budget cuts.
My husband had a delicious supper tonight all ready when I got home--spaghetti and meatballs, fresh green beans and crusty bread! YUM! We also broke out a new jar of home made apricot jam to spread on the rolls. It was as good as the last jar!
Sarah will be finished, graduated, matriculated and degree holding on Friday night!
There is a lovely fire in the fireplace.
Molly wrote an intriguing and inviting book report over Nathanial Philbrick's book, The Whaleship Essex. It has been added to my reading pile. Again!
Do you have a reading pile? When I'm at working at school--putting away books, looking for research materials--I come across stuff I want to read--fiction, biographies, old books, new books, forgotten tomes, collections of short stories, bizarre stories, urban legends.... Eventually, the pile in my office becomes unmanageable, I need some of the books out of it for someone else and I put them all back. And start a new one!
I impressed the library hanger-outers this week. I have a crew of kids who are finished with school after fifth period. For some bizarre reason, they like to stay at school in the library playing online video games, laughing uproariously and occasionally doing a bit of homework. One particular young man was playing Nintendo64 style Mario brothers on the computer and I commented that I love that game! "You?" The look of amazement killed me. They were even further impressed when I told them of my love for "The Legend of Zelda." Yea, I'm cool like that!
So what's up with you?
