A quiet weekend since James still wasn't feeling well. On Saturday we did go by the hobby shop and the cleaners, made a brief stop at Book Nook for an Easter volume I had seen two weeks ago, then stopped at Borders and JoAnn. James stayed in the truck and nursed his sore throat at Book Nook and JoAnn, but came in Borders. I managed to find a gift I was looking for, so that's taken care of for May. On the way home we stopped at Publix, which surprisingly at least had the chocolate Yoplait Whips, and had some ice cream to further soothe his throat.
We tried the Papa John's new whole wheat crust pizza for supper and watched the newest (well, newest here) Torchwood. Hmn. Let's tear everyone's hearts out this week, I see.
Another fun night on chat with Emma, Katie, Rodney and Mike, but a very late night; not in bed until after 2:30. So it was nice to snuggle up and sleep in this morning. We just went to the International Farmer's Market and Costco today. For supper James made Ginger-Pineapple Chicken in the crock pot, a recipe out of "Backwoods Home." It was quite good, but we had tons more ginger-pineapple sauce than we needed, so now is saved for another time. (The name is a bit of a misnomer, since the principal liquid in this was orange juice, but it did also have a tin of pineapple and the juice, as well as crasins and a little honey.)
Fascinating offering on Nature tonight: studying raptors to build more responsive aircraft. They built light (the smallest was 2.4 ounces) combination camera/battery/transmitter units that went on the birds' backs so we could get a "bird's eye view" as they flew. Beautiful birds: peregrine falcons, gyrfalcons, Harris hawks, bald and golden eagles, several kinds of owls, redtails.
And laundry got finished. Yay.
