READING: The Dark Valley: A Panorama of the 1930s by Piers Brendon, 692 pages (with an additional 77 pages of notes) leading up to WWII. Give me a few weeks on this one, it is long!
LISTENING TO: Last week I was listening to the music from the 1930s, this week I have been backing it up and going for the music from the 1920s as a sort of comparison.
COOKING BYTES: This past week I worked every day and my family as feeling the lack of homemade goodness around here...fortunately, midweek, my Secret Baker package arrived from Di and we had a wonderful Lemon Almond Cake...a cake To Di For! Thanks, Di, it was wonderfully delicious.
FAV NEW FIND: You can make crossword puzzles on the computer...just pick out your words and their definitions, plug it all in, hit the "make" button, and the computer prints it all out in crossword puzzle form. Fun party game for things like showers, birthdays, and those getting to know you ice breakers for kids.
FAV THING THIS WEEK: Matt was in a one act play at school for an English class, so that was fun to see. He did really well and had a good time with it. They had a performance on Tuesday evening and Mark and I enjoyed going to that. It was a busy week of subbing this week, as I was there all week. Am already starting to panic at the thought of this year's crop of seniors heading into graduation, I will miss them so much next year.
GOING TO: Probably hang around the house more than normal as it supposed to be rainy all weekend...no planting of summer things yet. Matt has prom on Saturday, with all the doings that accompany that...prep, dinner, dance, after party at Margaret's, concluding at 2:00 a.m.
PRAYING FOR: Please join me in praying for the repose of the soul of my Aunt Mary, the first of my mother's siblings to pass, who died last Sunday, April 25th.
