Yes, today is my birthday and I am OLD! In fact, I am so old that I forgot how old. Ha! The family gathered last night for a lovely dinner and games together later. The cake was purchased from the same bakery that will be doing the wedding cake for my daughter. It is Aztec Chocolate (with cinnamon and chilies.) It is a lovely combination of sweet, chocolate, and spicy. The funniest gift I received was a pair of reading glasses that have lights attached to them for reading in the dark. They are hilarious and they work good!
Movie of the week: I rewatched Becoming Jane about Jane Austen. I thought it might be a candidate for Jane Austen Week in my library. I still haven't decided what DVD I will show.
Audiobook I'm listening to: Inheritance by Christopher Paolini, the fourth book in the Eragon series. It is something like 28 hours of listening time so I will get the book from another library in the district. I can read when I am not listening to speed up the process.
Book finished this week: 1. A State of Wonder by Ann Patchett. Set in the Amazon. I really, really enjoyed this book in the audio format. Can't wait to discuss it in book club next month. I highly recommend it. 2. Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea by Guy Delisle. A Graphic biography.
I'm still reading: Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. This book isn't anything like I imagined but I am enjoying it very much. The love interest is just starting to show itself. My my.
Lists: People that will be serving homeless dinner with me next week. Organizing this is new to me so I am feeling a wee bit insecure..
Scripture lesson in church: Mark 9:7 "Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”
I'm praying for: My nephew.
Around the house: Dan, son-in-law-to-be sawed down the tree stump, the tree that was the victim of the ice storm.
From the kitchen: Whiskey River marinaded pork tenderloin and homemade applesauce.
A favorite quote this week: (This totally cracks me up!)
