5 New Things I Dig:

1. Book Scout. For the budding MLS candidate (me), reading this blog is de rigueur.

2. Listening to the Spilled Milk podcast. They have the skills to make you laugh as well as make you hungry.

3. My newly acquired habit of alternating my nightly reading. I now have a children's/young adult book on the nightstand along with a more adult title (and I don't mean adult in the 'hotcha cha cha' way). I finished The Penderwicks last night and found it charming.

4. Listening to the Coffee Break French podcast (I access the free version via itunes). I figure I should brush up my skills in the language that I took for the longest period of time. I took French for three years, Italian for two, German for a semester and Spanish for a quarter. I wish I had taken more Spanish! Italian is my favorite, despite it being the least useful.

5. Opala Vinho Verde. I tried it for the first time this weekend and was so pleasantly surprised. Gentle fizz, fresh, light (and cheap!). I found my bottle at Whole Paycheck...ahem, I mean Whole Foods.

Sunday, April 18, 2010 this thing on?

Last night was the first night we got to eat dinner outside and it looks like the same will happen tonight.

Trying a new pizza dough. Three pizzas will be made and toppings will include: pesto (with mozzarella), bbq shrimp (mozzarella/cheddar blend), and a veggie with red sauce (mozzarella).

Triple chocolate brownies made.

Wine ready.

I finished my paper on Futurists vs. Dadaists on Thursday. O blessed day!

I'm starting to get back to real life. And as a matter of fact, I'm going to sign off and go plant some yogurt containers. Sadly, this fantabulous weather is a "this weekend only" affair and snow is forecast for Tuesday night. Be back sometime, maybe in less than a month, maybe not. Cheerio and toodles!
