READING: The Henry Clay book was 800 pages of very tiny print, so took a break this week before venturing on with Daniel Webster to read this book: My Life in France by Julia Child and Alex Prud'homme. It was a very delightful read actually, enjoyed it immensely.
LISTENING TO: Cantiques and learning about Jean-Denis Daulé
COOKING BYTES: This section is going to change in character. It seems a bit redundant to list the books I am cooking from and the recipes scheduled when I also usually include them in the posts for that group when I cook with them that week. So in this section each week I am just going to share something from that week of cooking rather than all the listings of upcoming recipes for each group. This week I am planning on going into detail with my Whisk Wednesdays post about the future of the Whisk Chicks since the first part of the curriculum has ended, so that will appear on Wednesday.
FAV NEW FIND: Alex has a job! Seriously, Alex has a new job at a fast food restaurant and seems to be enjoying it. This was his second week.
FAV THING TODAY: Friday was extra nice subbing at Guerin as it was a history class. The teacher had set aside the movie Swing Kids for the students to watch. I had never seen this, or even really heard about it in all my readings of history and Nazi Germany, so am in the process of learning a little more about it. If you watch the movie, have Kleenex at hand.
GOING TO: Work around swim meet this weekend. First meet of the short course season, so always nice to see The Swimmers back in the water for competition to see what the year has brought as far as swim times...usually drop in the swims they don't consider "their swims" and stay about even for the first meet in the swims they do consider "their swims," so just a chance to get wet and compete.
PRAYING FOR: Deb O, just discovered Stage 4 breast cancer, please join me in praying for Deb and her family. I hope there are no typos in that sentence because I cannot bear to go back and read it again, it was hard enough just writing it.
