One more Slice for this challenge. I can’t believe it!
What a great month of writing and sharing with a very large community of writers. I have been adding more and more blogs to my Google Reader over the month, excited to have written with such a wonderful group. I remember ending my first Slicer challenge last year as I began writing with Stacie and Stacey and Ruth and more…
If you are new to this experience and feeling sad that it’s ending. fear not, Two Writing Teachers won’t let you go. There‘s Memoir Mondays and SLICE OF LIFE TUESDAYS and challenges galore.
Bravo to Stacey and Ruth!
As for my Slice today, it was nice to return to a normal Sunday. Nice to wake up in my own bed. Nice to smell spring even if it was hard to see it in the fog, but that was cool. I could still see that the grass is GREEN!
I was up early to digest the Sunday papers, sip coffee with Tuvia and watch a good dose of Sunday politics. Obama doesn’t seem to sleep.
We got to Strawberry Place for lunch and sailed past the waiting line huddled under the street awning. We have been opting for the counter stools for months. It’s a great way to bond with the staff and get our coffee cups filled in an instant.I chose a Mama Mia Omelet, listed on the Spring board just above me. It was filled with fresh basil, garlic, sundried tomatoes and mushrooms. I can still taste the large chunks of basil.
We walked a bit and planned the rest of Sunday with a movie at the mall: Duplicity, marking the return of Julia Roberts after beginning her family of twins and a third. Sorry to say, as I watched her acting I only saw the very exhausted mom in real life. Clive Owens was wonderful and was the rest of the cast, but as we reached the final moments we looked at each, shrugging. I will forget this one very quickly, maybe it’s gone already. Oh well we will be back next weekend for more.
We are feeling the coming of spring that’s for sure. Big week on the road-back to Dover for more digital work with 6th graders and then DC for the NWP National Conference and a visit to congressional representatives to keep the project alive.
Bring it on…
Have a good one. I’m off to read some slices before I move on…
