This week y'all.
I interviewed for, and got a part-time job I was really hoping to get. So say hello to the new custodian of my local church. :) This job, while great, turned out to be more involved than I expected, and this week has been jam packed. Luckily I'm working with the current custodian for the next few weeks before totally going solo.
Add to that my normal activities and work and I've been struggling to get my posts up on time! For those playing along at home, my Thursday review actually went up on Friday but hey, at least it's up at all, right? Right.
I'm glad we had this conversation.
Once again, my plan is to devote a solid chunk of time this week and try and write multiple posts so that I'm not scrambling the night before a post should go up (ha ha not that this post was written late Saturday night...of course not. not at all. I plead the fifth).
This upcoming week also promises to be busy-- what is this? I thought summer was supposed to be less busy! I did not sign up for this. I'm giving a lab tour to some middle-schoolers on Monday which should be fun. Our lab isn't super cool or sparkling or full of uber-science-y stuff but still, I try to make it exciting because I think what we do is exciting.
A week ago or so my mother gave me 1969 Betty Crocker cookbook she stumbled upon in a thrift store. It's sort of a tradition in my family to use this classic never-fail cookbook. It's full of gems, delicious recipes, and great statements such as "The thoughtful wife has a simple beverage (cold in summer, hot in winter) ready for her husband when he comes home at night." ;) I have a rapidly growing list of recipes to try-- it is really a great, detailed cookbook. The cake pictured above is their streusel-filled coffee cake and y'all, it does not disappoint.
Anyway! On to most book-related topics!
