You may have seen in my post last week that my younger son tested positive for Covid after our return from Hawaii. Not long after, my older son had a slight fever and cough. It took a few days for him to test positive after that. So for last week, it was mostly about resting at home, but also having the kids do some work that the teachers had assigned them.
My younger son is doing a lot better and had no symptoms yesterday so he went back to school today. My older son still has a cough so he’s going to stay home for a bit longer.
So we didn’t really do much over the last week. But here’s a few things:
Maizy Chen’s Last Chance – Lisa Yee
The Wedding Crasher – Mia Sosa
The Walking Dead season 10
I recently finished Intimacies by Katie Kitamura and haven’t yet picked a new audiobook.
Eating and Drinking:
I had a pain au chocolat from Paris Baguette for breakfast.
I’ll be cooking some simple foods this week. Noodle soups, rice and fish with lots of vegetables. Hopefully it’s nourishing and will help improve everyone’s immune systems.
Chef Yasmina and the Potato Panic – Wauter Mannaert
Intimacies – Katie Kitamura
While Justice Sleeps – Stacey Abrams
To Love and to Loathe – Martha Waters
Library Loot (April 27 to May 2)
Sea of Tranquility by Emily St John Mandel
I still remember Tale for the Time Being as a book I loved. Pho must have been nice for the family post-cough.
That soup looks amazing.
As usual your food pics are mouth-watering!
So sorry your sons got COVID – sounds like it was mild, thank goodness.
Of your stack of books, I have only read A Take for the Time Being and Room to Dream, but I loved them both – I just asked for the new Ruth Ozeki for Mother’s Day!
Pain au chocolat is my favorite!! Did you know you can get them frozen at Trader Joe’s? Just set them out to rise overnight, bake in the morning, and they come out perfect, like straight from a French bakery! In fact, we’ve had some from local bakeries that weren’t very good – we always say “ours,” from Trader Joe’s are the best!
Hope you enjoy more great books and delicious foods this week!
