|View of the new floor looking into the kitchen from the family room.|
|Our stairs used to be carpet that had been shredded by the pets and long use. Don't these hardwood stairs look nice?|
Weather today... Clear and warm. Last night we took the new iPad outside with the stargazing app and viewed Venus, Mars, the space-station, and other things in the sky.
- Black and White by Paul Volponi---the Volponi event is happening tomorrow during 5th period, so I must finish this book today!
- Breaking Night by Liz Murray---a memoir about a girl who went from homelessness to Harvard. Her parents were drug addicts and she lived in absolute chaos most of her life. This book is very well-written. It is for my book club that meets Wednesday. I'm afraid I will have to start speed reading it soon in order to complete it by then.
I'm listening to: Rotters by Daniel Kraus. This book won the 2012 Odyssey Award for good audiobooks. About grave-robbing, it is in equal parts mesmerizing and mortifying.
Book finished this week:
- The Ladies of Missalonghi by Colleen McCullough. An old favorite;
- Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor (audio)- a twist on the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Very creative.
I'm praying for: All those who are dealing with some anxiety over job insecurity.
Around the house: Hardwood floors!
From the kitchen: We have been eating out all week. It is getting old.
Memorable event of the week: Youth Auction for church.
A favorite quote this week: "I want to be a golden commandment person."
