Family Time and Changes Galore | Weekly Snapshot

There has been so much going on over here and so much changing soon. I wish I could say I was reading a lot, but it's feeling like a luxury at the moment. 

Family visitLast week, we had my husband's brother and his wife drive down from Boston and stay with us for the week. It had been months since we enjoyed anyone's close companionship for that long so we all enjoyed the time together. We were very sad to say our goodbyes. I hope we can all return to the pre-March era soon. 
While they were here, we celebrated the girl's birthday. (I feel like I have been talking about birthdays on this blog for the past many weeks but we are done for the year! Next birthday is in March.) My daughter had wanted a unicorn cake, and that's exactly what we got, so that made her day. For her birthday present, we wanted to take her to a store and get her a bike but stock is incredibly low. Last week, she had just mastered riding a bike (no training wheels, she went straight from balance …

Books on my nightstand
I am reading one book on my nook in addition to a print book, and I'm enamored by both of them. I'm not exactly sure of what I'll read next, but I like to plan my week anyways!

Moloka'i by Alan Brennert: I have just a hundred pages left in this one. So far this book is really beautiful! I'm kind of surprised that it is a fast read as well as written beautifully. I rarely see both together in books. I'm also surprised that it took me so long to pick this one, because I'm totally riveted!
Cooking for Geeks by Jeff Porter: Believe it or not, this is my first cookbook ever! I had never been into cooking until recently. I hate reading recipes - I never quite understood them. This book however has more science in it, as in not physics or chemistry theorems, but the science of what happens when we do this or mix that. I am enjoying this book because I can actually understand why we do something and not just do it blindly as I always did.
Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch by Richard Hine: Now that I'm back into a corporate life, this book will make for interesting reading. I kind of like the cover, plus I have the habit of leaving notes at my desk too, when I go somewhere - say to the lab or outside at a non-lunch hour (As if I expect a VIP to walk in and ask for me).

Looks like you had a good week. Russell Wiley is Out to Lunch looks like it might be a funny book. Hope you enjoy it.
Thank goodness, someone else who read only one book this week! We seem to be on the same trend. SO looking forward to the Dewey Read-a-thon this weekend to get some more reading done
