Yes, it’s Monday, but we got home late last night.

Week’s Highlight:

We saw The Phantom of the Opera at the Benedum yesterday evening. I’ve never seen the show, although I did listen to the book a couple of years ago. I knew a lot of the music, of course, it’s hard not to. The show was gorgeous, and I really enjoyed it.

Nothing really. What shows do you recommend? Something my husband and I might both enjoy?


I’m still plugging along on Don Quixote. I’m also in the middle of Murder by Matchlight by E.C.R. Lorac

I posted one review this week:


On Friday we played Dominion: Renaissance a couple of times. We also pulled out Hanabi, which we hadn’t played for a while. Hanabi—named for the Japanese word for “fireworks”—is a cooperative game where you’re trying to create the perfect fireworks show by placing the cards on the table in the right order. The trick is that you hold your cards so that only the other players can see them’ you can’t. You give each other clues regarding the numbers and colors of the cards people are holding to help everyone play the right cards at the right time. Our show wasn’t perfect, but it was respectable.

Looking forward to:

There are a couple of fun things on my calendar this week. On Thursday, my mom and I are going to a craft night at church. We’re making Easter bunny wall hangings. Then, on Saturday, I’m participating in a trivia contest. Our team won’t do very well, but it will be fun.
