Happy weekend everyone! We had a normal week in the Nawrot house, and normal is good. My parents left to go back to the cold, unforgiving North (from the 80's to the middle of yet another snow storm, go figure), which is a sign that spring is upon us. Both my son and daughter chose their classes for next year, which is always cause for discussion and debate. I golfed on Thursday. Weather was gorgeous.
I just have to make a comment about my daughter's birthday dinner on Sunday night at Victoria and Albert's (at the Grand Floridian Resort at Disney). Not something you want to do more than once or twice in a lifetime, but it really was incredible. They wait on you hand and foot, seven courses of taste explosions in your mouth, and they even offer the women cashmere shawls to borrow if it is too chilly. It is first class, an an event you should try if you can.
We continue the birthday celebration this weekend. (Trust me, this ongoing extravagance isn't routine, but she DID turn 16.) She had Friday off, so she and I did some shopping, then went to Downtown Disney and had lunch and saw Frozen. On Saturday we went to the spa, then spent a night at Disney Caribbean Beach Resort. Just to get away. (The boys went to North Florida to see a rodeo and drag racing - woo hoo!). It was a nice relaxing time, with a few hours by the pool and some good reading.
As far as reading goes, I finished "The Wicked Girls" by Alex Marwood, which I LOVED. So twisted and full of conflicting emotions! This book was one of Stephen King's "best books of 2013" and for good reason. I'm now about a hundred pages into "Wolf", the new Mo Hayder, which was sent to me by the dear Michele Jacobsen of "Reader's Respite" who got her hands on the ARC. Can't even tell you how damn excited I am to read this.
On audio I listened to "Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore", a charming little book that was made for geeky modern-day bibliophiles. I am now near the finish of Lippman's latest called "After I'm Gone". It isn't quite what I was expecting, but is good storytelling.
Besides church and a shelter adoption event today, I'm not sure what else will be going on. Hope you all have a great Sunday!
