    Sometimes you gotta do things to keep the peace. Basically I've seen it so many times because of a fight that took place a few years ago that I managed to keep neutral territory on. And maintaining neutral territory means making some sacrifices.
    Oh, and my siblings on my mom's side, and my siblings on my dad's side. One viewing with mom's family, one viewing with dad's.
    Between those two situations, it means seeing every marvel movie 5 or more times.

    It rained yesterday & it's cold out today. I had a long week, so I'm going to relax at the movies & see Unfriended & Avengers: Age of Ultron. I'll also go to the bookstore & another store or two.

    My boyfriend is having finals so I spent the day in my preferred fashion -- cooking. Made a basil candied pine nut ice cream, a blueberry lemon cake, ramp pesto and a mexican mojo sauce for shrimp that turned out to be a terrible recipe. My mom mailed me some ramps from upstate ny and I've been trying to use them up all week!

    The ice cream and cake sound delish!

    Beautiful weather here yesterday...shopped for Mothers Day, went to the farm for baked goods, went to garden center, watched a bit of golf tourney.

    Brunch today with sisters and mom. :love:

    I worked in my classroom all day yesterday. I'm moving rooms after 17 years in the same place, so it's a chore.

    I spent the afternoon shopping with my mom. We also went for lunch together. Then I mapped out the last 7 weeks of school and started organizing all the texts I'm going to need to go with my themes. Finished off the day by making a Toblerone cheesecake which we will be having tonight for Mother's Day supper.

    I actually have made 3 different blueberry lemon cakes this week. My favorite is ina garten's blueberry crumb cake and you can Google that. If you want tons of lemon flavor, I would go with smittenkitchen's blueberry lemon pound cake. I made more basil ice cream today and I'm going to a jazz festival and wine tasting tomorrow.

    Been in the low 70s today & last couple days. Did some errands, went to Michaels, relaxed some while eating dinner, & now I'm doing some work on the computer.

    Other than you not feeling well, sounds good. Feel better soon!

    Mowed the lawn today because we are anticipating storms tomorrow. The yard looks so much better, and that feels good. I will go into school tomorrow afternoon.

    I spent all day at work helping clean out the classroom I'm moving into. Then we ate supper, and I got a pedicure. First pedicure I'd had in years. I booked it at a local salon instead of going to a nail place.

    It was a nice, HOT day so I planted some flowers and puttered around the yard. I haven't done much school work and I feel like I'm forgetting something. Oh well! It can't be too important!

    Lots of errands yesterday, as well as starting to pack for our grade 8 overnight trip later this week. I did take some time to sit on the porch in the sun and read. Today, lots of marking, more packing, and buying and planting some flowers (hopefully, yesterday morning's frost was the last of the season!).

    Yesterday (Sat.) walked total of almost 2 hrs (morning & afternoon) in 2 different locations. That felt great!!!

    I already walked this morning for almost an hour. Just like yesterday, I'll be mostly at home doing work. I think I'll walk again later today too!

    My whole weekend will consist of either working, walking/working out at the gym, & relaxing.

    Then, I'll be waking up at 2 AM on Tues for my San Francisco flight! I'm so excited. :D

    I am hoping to continue weeding and then plant some annuals, but the forecast is for rain, so I should clean but will probably read or work on a baby quilt!
