FROM THE KITCHEN...
We've eaten out a lot lately, celebrating.  We need a break tonight and tomorrow, simpler and lighter foods, in preparation for Meat-A-Palooza. We're joining a lot of family members later in the week to try one of those Brazilian meat restaurants that keep bringing meat carved off a spear.

ON MY TO-DO LIST...
:: Got to get my 1st semester paperwork sent into Mother of Divine Grace

TO RECOMMEND...
:: I created a new Pinterest board for teaching Shakespeare

CAPTURED...

Isn't that a cool, personalized skin for my laptop?

I am so sorry I forgot your birthday. You my dear, look absolutely lovely...and I'm not just saying that to make up for forgetting your birthday.

I am so happy you linked up at Plain Grace.

Happy Birthday to you!! I LOVE that St. Angela Merici quote, I hadn't seen that one before, and isn't it SO true. Hope your week is off to a good start :)
