This was actually a pretty productive weekend!
~ Friday, we learned that YS made a 90 on his last Physics test! He has really struggled with that class this past trimester, so we were extremely proud of him for that grade. We went out for pizza at a new local pizza place that is just down the road from our house. It's our new "go-to" place for pizza!
~ I got caught up on Suits and Deception, along with Nashville. Last week's "Deception" was pretty neat: my former high school band director's daughter was in the Debutante Ball Scene.You can see a great shot of her at the 17 second mark.
She's the red-head just behind the actress playing the lead in the scene.
~ Saturday, I did some laundry & got busy on a Valentine's Project for the boys:
I did one batch on Sat. for OS & MS, then another batch on Sunday for CH & YS. These are the "Mosaic Glazed Sugar Cookies" that I made over Christmas. So easy, and I was very happy at how well they turned out. They aren't too sweet; in fact, they kind of taste like shortbread. If anybody has a tip for rolling out the dough evenly, let me know. I'm making these cookies for the goodie bags for my in-laws' anniversary party, so I want them to turn out perfectly. Maybe I just need to practice between now and then, which would make OS & YS pretty happy!
~ I printed out some new games for school from the TPT website. I LOVE that site; I just wish it didn't take so much colored ink to print out. There are lots of creative speech pathologists out there that have made some awesome materials!
~ Sunday was more laundry & the 2nd batch of cookies. I got some of the materials laminated; the rest will have to wait until today when I can use the school's laminator.
~ YS had his "D&D" group over Saturday night, so I made French Toast for them on Sunday morning. One of his friends said that I was now his hero! He said that he thought about moving in with us last week, after the pancakes/crepes that they had. Good to know I can at least cook a good breakfast!
~ As I was working on my school stuff, I came across this song on Songza. As you listen, close your eyes and see who you think this sounds like. I had CH do that, and he got the same answer I did.
If you guessed Karen Carpenter, you'd have the same answer we did. To me, it's almost eerie how much she sounds like her, and I absolutely LOVED Karen's voice.
Have a great week!
