Book reviews to come soon. 🙂
So how was everyone else’s vacation? What did you do? Where did you go?
My husband had the week and a half off from work, so it was quite nice. We did visit some friends in Virginia at the beginning, but after that we stayed home. We cooked a lot, went out to dinner a couple of times, played video games together, watched the first-season Heroes DVDs Jeffrey got me for my birthday (not quite done yet!), and fun things like that.
The only sour note was Amazon. We ordered a sewing machine from them (we had some gift cards to use) and ordered it via overnight so it would arrive two days ago (Monday). This was important to us because there are some things we want to sew for Saturday, when we go to a Twelfth Night feast at the home of some friends. Unfortunately, Amazon shipped it by ground shipping instead of overnight. Luckily it’ll arrive today because it shipped from only one state away, but the sewing will be a tad rushed—particularly since we’re making bread for 25 people for the same event. At least after I wrote to Amazon they did agree to do a partial refund of the shipping costs.
We happened to be asked to make bread just after I received a review copy of a cookbook of traditional breads from around the world, so I’m very much looking forward to taking advantage of that coincidence to test out the recipes!
