Robin is home! I am a very happy Mum. Also, I finished the second of two indexing projects (which received glowing praise from the author, bless him!) and turned it in, plus made some minor changes to the previous week’s index at that author’s request. And I got the program for tonight’s concert designed and written, and yesterday’s dress rehearsal went well. I’m really proud of my singers; they’ve worked hard and they sound pretty darned good! So it was a good week, if very busy; I’m in good spirits all ’round. The concert is tonight; I expect to be proud, happy, and thoroughly exhausted by the time I get home tonight.
However, between the indexes and everything I needed to get done before the concert, the blog got pretty short shrift this week. I did post two reviews, both written months ago, and a Top Ten Tuesday post. But there just wasn’t time to get a News & Notes post done this week. I’m sorry! I know some of you look forward to it, and I always enjoy pulling it together.
This coming week, I’ll be starting a new indexing project and taking Robin out for lots and lots of driving practice. The goal is to get her license by the end of July. She and I will also be watching Avatar: The Last Airbender (the TV show) and Doctor Who and drinking lots of tea… and hopefully knitting and reading aloud together, too. Oh, and getting everything ready to leave on a family vacation in about three weeks!

Very much a work in progress at this point, so wait and see!
What I’m Reading
I seem to be reading more mystery and fantasy than romance, these days, but still a bit of each. This week, I re-read Robin McKinley’s Rose Daughter and Catherine Aird’s The Religious Body. I’m also making my way through Uprooted, by Naomi Novik; it’s wonderful! I’m listening to The Story of Human Language, by John McWhorter – not a book but a lecture series from The Great Courses (which used to be The Teaching Company.) It’s really good, but at 18 hours of lectures, it’s taking me a long time to get through it.
