Weather today... spitting snow with intermittent hail. Strange weather for late winter in the Pacific NW.
Movie/TV of the week: Downton Abbey, Season one, Episodes 1 and 2. We are late to jump on the fan bandwagon for this very popular Masterpiece Theater Classic series. I actually had to educate my lawyer husband about what it means to entail property and titles. He pondered how I would know something about this, when he didn't. The answer is easy: I'm a Jane Austen fan, he's not.
I'm reading and listening to: Inheritance by Christopher Paolini, the fourth book in the Eragon series. It is something like 28 hours of listening time so I read it in the house and listen in the car to speed things up.
Book finished this week: 1. Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. A new favorite. This book is magical. Check out my review, written as a love letter to the author.
I'm still reading: The Handmaid and the Carpenter by Elizabeth Berg. It is my goal to have this one finished by the end of the day.
Lists: Jane Austen Week must-do list. This is an event I host in the library every lunch period for a week with trivia, games, prizes, and a JA video. This year: Emma.
Scripture lesson in church: John 6:18-20--- 18 A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. 19 When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened. 20 But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.”
I'm praying for:My daughter who had a scary health-related event this past week.
Around the house: We spent part of Saturday looking at granite for kitchen counters. It will be a big job to switch out what we have now but will improve the way the kitchen looks.
From the kitchen: Stuffed green peppers. Easy and yummy.
A favorite quote this week: Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham: What's a "weekend"? -from Downton Abbey.
