Friday Fare: 4/30/21

May is almost HERE! And that means one more month of distance learning for my kids and then SUMMER VACATION. It will not look very different from last summer (or really, the school year), but my husband and I are looking forward to retiring our “educator” hats.

The Oscars were Sunday and other than adoring Emerald Fennell and Frances McDormand, I did not pay that much attention to the shindig. I did, however, adore People magazine’s recap of the Oscar ceremonies from 1991 and 2001.

I know I’ve talked about how ridiculously talented my friends are. Beyond friends who are writers, I am lucky to know artists and musicians. But there’s a special place reserved for those friends who bake … and my friend, author K. Bird Lincoln, hosted a “craft” morning the other day. I don’t craft, but I eat cake, and she’s been making this Orange Cardamom Cake with Almonds and Gran Marnier.  And it’s delicious.


Reading: Why yes, I am still reading Story Genius by Lisa Cron. I finished How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish, My eldest is an excellent reader, so he got a kick out of my reading material. (“Are you LISTENING, moooom!?”) I may be a writer, but to two people, I am mom. 🙂

Writing: It was a bit of a week with work, so writing got put on the back burner.  But I did finish the third class (of three) from a Jane Friedman advanced editing class.

Hiking: Bluebells at Carley State Park.

Stay safe and well, friends!

What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
