Reading: Last week I read The Kite Runner. A year or so ago, Doug & I started watching it together, and I ran out of the room crying after one scene. I was able to make it through the book without crying. Overall, it's an excellent book and I highly recommend it. I'm still working on Ministries of Mercy by Keller. Just started a collection of essays called Cold Tangerines that I'm borrowing from my friend Patti.
Listening: to the Avett Brothers. I just went to their show in Ann Arbor last night with my friend Vanessa. It was so much fun - they draw a very diverse, interesting crowd! Their albums are very chill, but their performance was crazy & energized. Pretty much love them. Download: "Perfect Space" off their album I and Love and You.
Cooking: I have all the ingredients for these amazing S'more Bars that one of my students made for her demonstration speech... now I just need to make them (and hopefully mail some to Robert!). They are amazing.
Thinking: The quarter ends in a week and 2 days. Then only 1 more quarter left.
Wearing: Well, I'm not wearing this right now (or today, even), but I wore this Monday. It was a birthday gift from Doug.
Craving: Mom's minestrone soup and a warm slice of her homemade bread.
Thankful for: Skype, so I can see Doug while he's in Florida.
Laughing at: Obsession.
Grading: done with the portfolios! My freshmen are working on their research papers... so that will be quite a task when they're done.
Loving: Warmer days, sunny afternoons, brighter mornings & longer hours of daylight.
