If you are celebrating Easter today, I wish you a joyful and blessed day!
We dyed eggs yesterday, and put together Easter baskets for each other. I made half a carrot cake, because there are only two of us. (I cut the recipe in half, baked a single layer, cut that in half and turned it into a semicircular layer cake.) Easter morning starts out with cinnamon buns (because I can’t get proper cross buns.) Then we’ll stream the Easter service. In the afternoon, I’ll make our traditional corn pudding to go with the Easter ham, green beans, rolls, and macaroni and cheese.
The current index consumed pretty much all my time this past week. I hope to finish it and turn it in sometime this week. Then I have a week or so before the next indexing project arrives. I plan to spend that free time spinning, knitting, reading, hopefully catching up on the blog a little… and probably trying to catch up on housework as well.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: The book I’m indexing is taking a lot of time and is visually intensive, so my eyes have been too tired to do much reading for pleasure. But I have continued my reread of the Valdemar books, finishing Winds of Change and Winds of Fury. I’m currently rereading Storm Warning, the first in the Mage Storms trilogy, which follows immediately after the Mage Winds trilogy.
Listening to: classical music and hymns for Easter, plus a few podcasts: Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, The SheepSpot Podcast, The Allusionist, and Tea and Strumpets.
Watching: I watched two more Campion miniseries this week: Mystery Mile and Police at the Funeral.
Playing: Carcassonne, Merge Magic, DragonVale, Pokemon Go, and some crosswords and word games.

For Review or Consideration
Purchased (Kindle, print, or audio)
Audiobooks: Riviera Gold. I bought the audio through Amazon’s Kindle Match program, which offers a discount on some audiobooks if you already own or are purchasing a Kindle copy. You can listen to the books through the Audible app, and they show up in your Audible library. You don’t have to have an Audible subscription, but you do have to set up an account. We don’t subscribe to Audible currently, but we have a fairly extensive Audible library as a result of years of buying audiobooks through our Amazon account.
