This is the time of year we start planning our homeschool classes at co-op for next school year which means meetings, changes, answering emails, making decisions, taking surveys, analyzing feedback and doing a lot of talking. It can be both mentally and physically exhausting, but it is very gratifying work.
Other than THAT, I've been making quite a few of these . . .
|Dipping and coating strawberries in chocolate is not a bad way to spend the the morning. If you get done soon enough these are very tasty with a cup of coffee.|
These chocolate covered strawberries are my latest addiction. I have made them FIVE times in the past few weeks. Help! Please hide the chocolate from me.
|Books I've finished reading lately, all of which are very good.|
I've also been reading a little bit. Tomorrow I am meeting with my book clubbies to discuss Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. Have I mentioned it before? This book has been a good conversation starter with family and friends alike and I've enjoyed what the book says about extroverts as much as all the info on introverts. I enjoy figuring out the people in my life better and this has been a good tool.
I really enjoyed The Prodigal God. It challenged my thinking on the story usually known as The Prodigal Son. I've listened to a good number of Tim Keller's sermons so the information was not new, but I like having it compiled and written down. I am very visual and love to let my eyes roll over the words.
And Shanghai Girls was really good story including a complicated sibling/sister relationship, arranged marriages, struggle to survive, and heartbreak, but very educational about a time, place and culture in American history that I don't know a whole lot about. Do you know what a paper son was?
I hope you will say hello! Are you reading anything good? Or enjoying some tasty treat lately? Do tell.
