I threw together some mini chicken tacos in wonton wrappers one night. Fun and tasty! Other than that there was nothing to write home about.
I had my first DNF of the year when I abandoned The Country of Ice Cream Star. Boo. The language was too much of a weird slog-fest for me. It happens, right? I put it aside and moved on to the fun and quirky The Wonders by Paddy O’Reilly. Then it was on to The Evening Chorus by Helen Humphreys. Then I zipped through Golden State by Stephanie Kegan. I sure didn’t expect to get so much reading in after beginning the week with a DNF.
Bacteria! Mike (the husband) has been hit hard by strep throat. He’s been home for a few days boiling with a high fever. I’m hoping that the rest of us stay in the clear and don’t come down with that nasty illness. If he even looks in my direction I run off to wash my hands. GET THEE BEHIND ME, GERMS!
I’m feeling particularly proud of my kidlets. Carter (16) is now the purchasing manager for the high school store as part of a class in entrepreneurship. He’s learning about responsibility in a whole new way which can only be a good thing. Avery (14) attends the same local high school, but only for an hour each day for a art class. (She’s homeschooled.) Even though she only attends the public school part time she is resurrecting The Acceptance Project there. She’s collecting signatures and jumping through all of the hoops to make it happen. Send her a few lucky vibes? The school board can be…difficult at times. The LGBT+ kids really need this.
How was YOUR week? What are you reading, cooking, loving?
