We had some amazing spring days this week, even made it up to 80 degrees. The Bradford pear trees have burst into bloom. And after a few nice days, Mother Nature decided we'd had enough and it's been cold & cloudy for the last few days.

One of our Borders stores is closing. Books were finally 40-50% off this week. I have been waiting for that and hoping the cookbooks I wanted would still be around. I ended up getting two Nigella Lawson cookbooks and two Ina Garten. I'm excited. I'll have lots of cooking to do!

It was a full week. I am glad I made it through. Tuesday night I went to a concert of the band "Abandon Kansas". A guy I grew up going to church with joined the band last year as their bass player. They played at a church 2 blocks from my house. Chet did a great job. The concert was loud, but good.
I changed my bedding from the heavy winter comforter to my summer bedding today. But it's not quite warm enough for just the summer quilt so I get to add my favorite blanket. This has been on my bed since I was a little girl. It was one of my parents' wedding gifts. The happy 1970s daisies always make me smile.

This weekend I went to the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) region i conference in Golden, CO. We were stuck in the conference the entire weekend so I didn't get to see anything of Golden other than a bit of the Colorado School of Mines campus. I had the opportunity to do The Order of the Engineer ceremony and get my ring. The Order of the Engineer oath basically says you'll use your engineering abilities for the betterment of society. We received a a stainless steel ring to wear on the pinky finger of our working hand to remind us of the oath.
