We arrived at Katie and Savanna's last evening at about 7:30p.m. Just in time to have a little apple crisp and watch the UNC / Duke game. It lived up to the hype - the lead see-sawed back and forth most of the game. The 'Heels pulled ahead in the final minutes and won 90-83. A very satisfying end to the regular season. Betsey would be happy!
We went to church at First Church, Amherst, this morning, ate at their community meal and then I went to the Smith College Library while Ellen went to the movies with her friend, Alia, who had been at church. They saw United Kingdom, which they liked very much. I was looking up books about Holmes Rolston, III, an environmental ethicist. Very interesting !
Here at home, I got the home fires burning while Ellen grocery-shopped.
Then we did the "Spelling Bee" puzzle from the Sunday NY Times. (How many words of at least five letters can you form from the letters C+XAITOM (every word must include "C" and you can use letters more than once in a word). One word uses all the letters, and is worth 3 points. Otherwise, one word = one point. We both got the 3-point word. I got 11 points; Ellen got 16, which makes her a "genius." I'm "excellent." Nothing new there, I guess.
Now we just have to get warm and back into the routine here at home.
