Weekending

imageWe decided to give the kids a couple of weeks off of school in honor of Easter.  Needless to say, they were thrilled.  Smile  So for the next 2 weeks they will have absolutely nothing to do despite all the toys and video games they have! 

Mommy, on the other hand, is actually not really getting that break.  I opted to help my beloved with the latest Slurp he’s got going on.  I’ll be spending my days researching and doing a bit of editing.  Slurp, for those who don’t know, is what we call the non-fiction books my husband writes.  He referred to the 1st project he had as his “Super Secret Real Life Project” or “SSRLP” and people noted that looked a lot like “slurp.”  Now you know.  Smile  So this will be his 3rd book.  Because of his work schedule, I think I’ll be much more involved with this one as well. 

Time to start the water to boil for the eggs this week too.  We wanted to find an Easter tree to decorate, much like the Christmas tree tradition, but we couldn’t really find an indoor tree to suit our needs right now.  Hopefully next year we’ll be able to do that.  We want to set up a tree and decorate it with Easter ornaments and have presents for the kids under it.  I thought a palm tree would be appropriate, but can you imagine how hard it would be to put ornaments on something like that?  And who has a little 3’ or 4’ decorative fake palm tree?  So, more searching I suppose. 

We went to check out Kindles this weekend.  We found out Target sold them OTC so we thought how cool it was to check them out, do the touchy-feely thing, see it up close and personal.  We both walked away feeling … meh.  Perhaps because Target is only selling the Kindle2 right now, and not the new Kindle3, I dunno.  But we both were hoping to be more impressed for the kind of money Amazon is asking for it.  Shouldn’t we have been wowed?  Or am I expecting too much for $150?  My phone was way less than that and I was a lot more wowed.  Apparently more research is required. I was so hoping to be wowed.  But maybe it’s me.  Do you have a Kindle?  What are your thoughts? 

My weekend was pretty nice, I hope yours was too!

And a blessed Shabbat Shalom to you too, in honor of Passover tonight.

  1. What type of stuff does he write? I read religion and history.

    Well, the non-fiction stuff I mentioned is for tech manuals. His fiction, that he has for sale on Kindle, is horror. Not gory horror, what I’ve come to call “gorror,” but scary stuff. And he still has his childhood memoirs still up on his fiction blog, for those that don’t like the scary stuff. 🙂

    Do you have a specific religion or period in history that you like to read?

  2. I want to get a Kindle, but there always seems to be something else I need first!

    I know! Me too! There are always so many things that are a higher priority.

    I have a Kindle and I like it a lot. I find it comfortable to read and use. It doesn’t rock my world, but it’s a nice addition to my paper library. I like the option to download books instantly instead of shlepping to the bookstore and hauling them home manually.

    I want an eReader so bad! The d/l books instantly is something I would adore, as is carrying around thousands of books in one tiny package. I liked the Kindles we saw, but they just seemed so expensive for what you get for the money, you know? Maybe I should see what else is out there.

    Yay for a nice long Easter break for the kiddies (: I bet they’re thrilled!

    I’ve been seeing people who Easter trees on their lawns for weeks, they’re so lovely! My cousins always had a regular Christmas tree, and then in their play room, they would have a Charlie Brown tree (think tree limb with lots of branches off of it). Maybe a hike could provide what you’re looking for in an Easter tree?

    They are happy about it. 🙂

    A hike might show something, that’s a good thought. 🙂 I’m hoping to find something collapsible, like the little Christmas tree we have, but not evergreen. Maybe I’ll find something for next year. 🙂

  5. My college roommate had a fake palm tree…about 4 feet high. I constantly stole the fronds off it so she had a stick. I think she hated me.

    LOL You palm frond thief! I’m telling mom! 😀
