So, after making my to-do grid, I realized I had a lot of work to do this weekend and so spent most of it grading and/or doing prep for this week and finals. I have made so much progress, though, so it was totally worth it. And after next Friday? SCHOOL’S OUT FOR THE SUMMER. As long as I get my grades in by then.
In other news, I did a lot of cooking and baking this weekend. The scones were okay but not great; the bread was good but not great; the chicken soup was good but not great…are you getting the picture? Everything was edible, but nothing wowed me. Maybe it will be different this week.
And I also discovered Prime Reading this weekend. (And by “discovered,” I mean “paid attention to one of the many emails I get from Amazon.”) I am not really sure how I missed it before, but it’s almost time to renew my membership so I guess it’s good I’m realizing all the perks that come with Prime besides free shipping and movies/TV.
A to Z Challenge is still happening, so I posted a bunch this past week.
- H is for Healing #AtoZChallenge
- I is for Improvement #AtoZChallenge
- J is for Jesus Be a Fence #AtoZChallenge
- K is for Knowing Who to Call #AtoZChallenge
- L is for Lost and Found #AtoZChallenge
- M is for Making a To-Do List–er, Grid #AtoZChallenge
Theme is still gratitude.
I finished a book! This is actually the first book I have read this month. So…yeah. That’s where I am right now.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Awesome narrator, fully realized setting, engaging story.
Reread 4/16/17: I listened to the audio of this, which I would give a 4.5 because the main narrator had some affectations that I didn’t particularly care for. But I *love* that this is a full-cast audio production, which means different people did the different characters’ voice. LOVE.
Dashti still owns my heart (talk about faith–I mean), but, man, I really felt for Saren this time around, especially since I knew why she was so the way she was.
I am allllllmost done with The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. Next two days maybe? Let us hope.
Have a great week, everyone!
