I’m sorry for the lack of posting this past week. I’ve gathered a few ideas, but I haven’t been able to figure out how I want to share them. I do have one or two other posts already planned for this week, though, so that’s a start. I’m treat-free again this week, but that’s partly because I’m saving up for a post in a couple days. I also looked and looked and could not find a video to share, so I thought I’d make up for it by sharing two songs. Despite my two cups of coffee today, I’m still feeling tired; maybe it’s because I’ve had a lot to do over the past few days.
The Song, Part I
Adele puts her own spin on Cheryl Cole’s dance hit “Promise This” and once again makes me wonder, ‘How does she do it?”
The Song, Part II
Brussels sprouts, as the recipe below notes, tend to be a major hit or a major miss for people. I tend to avoid them, but every so often, when they’re cooked just right, I take my chances. This recipe below sounds unusual and interesting enough to make them more of a hit (or, at least, less of a miss).

What’s Making Me Happy?
All the theater I’ve been seeing recently! Last Thursday, I saw the terrific, heartbreaking Broadway production of The Normal Heart, followed by (the completely different) Catch Me If You Can on Friday. I was invited only a few days earlier by some family friends to see CMIYC, so it was an unexpected, but welcome, surprise. Not the best Broadway musical I’ve ever seen, but a fun show nonetheless. Later this week, I’m seeing War Horse, which I saw in London and have barely been able to stop talking about since.
