~ Made semi-homemade ravioli with our friends Danielle & Andy: the ravioli was tasty, but they all got stuck together so it did not look very appealing. However, the mushroom cream sauce I made to top them was divine! (Recipe: http://mommymadedinner.blogspot.com/2011/09/mushroom-cream-sauce.html )
~ Watched the film RENT (finally). While I did enjoy it for the most part, I really like La Boheme much better.
~ I finally got around to putting new photos in frames to hang around the house to replace out-dated ones and to show new family & friends.
~ I finished two new Robin Jones Gunn novels - Canary Island Song and Love Finds You in Sunset Beach. Both were wonderful and I was reminded once again of the way the author is able to weave beautiful spiritual truths into interesting stories in ways that hit you unexpectedly and definitely made me cry.
~ Prepared Nigella Lawson's easy Chocolate Croissants four different times - delicious!!! :) (Recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/nigella-lawson/chocolate-croissants-recipe/index.html )
~ I read some varied books this month: two books about life in France, two modern adaptations of Sense & Sensibility and the book Working for the Windsors which inspired a recent rush of interest in the story of Edward and Wallis Simpson, the king who abdicated the throne for love.
~ I unfortunately injured myself while leaning down to pick up a napkin and caused sacroiliac joint inflammation (it's the joint that connects the pelvis to the spine). It has continued to cause pain, but with weekly visits to the chiropractor I've steadily gotten better.
~ Josh was able to visit his mom, brother & brother's family for one week and he had a wonderful time playing with our nieces and nephews, trying lots of new & unique restaurants and just spending time with his family.
