Day four of March Break

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

Last night we watched a great documentary film here at Casa Fishbowl called Chasing Ice. Have you seen it? It’s a gorgeous, fascinating, and devastating look at climate change. It’s terrible and beautiful, and it’s on Netflix. You should watch it with your kids. Here’s a peek.

I have had an interesting day so far. I attended the Westfest launch this morning and got to chat with all kinds of interesting people. There’ll be more about that in the March 20 issue of the Kitchissippi Times. :)

It’s a regular work day for me, and Mark has taken the day off to hang out with us. He braved the cold weather to pick us up a special lunch this afternoon from Parma Ravioli. Their meatball sandwiches are a popular item around here, although I had a roasted veggie panini.

What else? Sarah has been working all week on a special project, which I’m really looking forward to sharing here soon. In the meantime, don’t forget to enter my giveaway for Kidsfest tickets. The draw is at noon tomorrow!
