Our week back to school after Spring Break went much smoother than I had anticipated. It helps that as we get closer to summer, more and more subjects are being finished up, and the work load gets smaller. Good thing, because I am very ready for summer vacation. Last week of afternoons spent reading at the park or pool while the kids played/swam completely spoiled me. Spoiled me so much that I took them to the park again this Monday – after we were done with school, of course. It was in the high 70s, absolutely beautiful, and I had just picked up 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff at the library. It’s only 97 pages long, and I devoured that delightful book while the kids played for an hour and a half. A perfect afternoon.
This weekend is going to be pretty low-key, which is just fine with me. I am struggling with some church issues (again, or still, however you want to look at it) and mulling things over in my head. This will either be beneficial or an exercise in futility, I can’t tell yet. I’d like to go see Duplicity at the theater this weekend with my folks, if I can scrape together the moolah. We’ll see.
I don’t have a lot of web links to share with you this week, because I’ve been spending every spare moment getting the new Books and Movies populated with posts. So, in the spirit of blatant self-promotion, here are some links to what I’ve been doing over there. And, if you’re wondering why I moved it, this person’s post about the deceptive business practices at Today.com will help explain. My experience wasn’t quite as bad – at least not at the beginning – but it didn’t end well.
My posts at Books and Movies this week:
~ Summer movie preview (including the latest Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince trailer).
~ Blogwarming giveaway – I’m giving away six books.
