READING: Am figuring WWII is going to need to wait a bit as all I am getting accomplished with reading seems to be college catalogs and recruiting materials. Yep, July 1st is just around the corner and Division 1 colleges can contact Matt in regards to visiting them for recruiting visits, etc. for swimming. Figure we should be up on what colleges offer what and all that...he wants to have all the signing done by the fall date if possible so he can be finished thinking about it all and just concentrate on school and his senior year of swimming.
LISTENING TO: Right now I am listening to a lot of pounding as some workers are here to fix a couple window sills that needed tending to before the painters arrive next week to paint the house. It's driving the dogs nuts. Earlier in the week I listened to the sound of our beautiful 18 year old Bradford Pear tree crack in a bad storm, splitting it in two. Sadly, it has all been taken down and carted away, even the stump, not a trace of it left.
COOKING BYTES: Embarking on the BBA Panettone recipe...a four day process from making the seed culture, to making the barm, to making the dough for the Panettone. Apparently that Panettone we all buy at Christmas time involves a bit of work...maybe why a good one costs so much.
FAV NEW FIND: Seeing all the college swimmers home for the summer and swimming with the team again. They have all grown up so much!
FAV THING THIS WEEK: I am just really enjoying having Matt home for the summer for lunch and popping in and out all day between swim practices and such. On Sunday after Mass we hosted the senior altar servers from the young Knights for a pitch-in cookout. Matt, Jack, Chaz, Mr. Higgins, Colin, Steven, Matt F., Derek, and Mark cooking with Matt J. standing and that was a fun time for all of us, even though the swimming portion was rained out.
GOING TO: Three more grad parties this weekend, DM concert Friday and Saturday nights, and Father's Day with Mark's folks with the family all home for celebrating. A full weekend of fun...lots to love about all that.
PRAYING FOR: Fathers everywhere, please join me.
