The Weekly Digest

It’s been a nice week—the weather has been spring-like in Davis, which led to some gardening and plenty of outside playtime.

Aron and I are watching Victoria on PBS for our nightly show, at the moment. And I’m listening to Rosamund Pike read Pride & Prejudice on my walks. It has been a wonderful treat, and I can’t wait to show one of the movies to the kids. I’m debating to go with the long mini-series or the Keira Knightley version… I think they’ll like the latter best. (Plus, I’m a sucker for Matthew MacFadyen saying “I.. I love you… body and soul.”)

This weekend, we are enjoying the snow in Tahoe with our friends (the family we’ve buddied up with all year). At this very moment, the kids are eagerly awaiting the family’s arrival to have some kids to play with.

Hope you have a great weekend! Some links of note…
