A Delightful Weekend (and also Hi)

Woohoo! I'm emerging from my finals-induced hibernation and man, does it feel good! This weekend was an excellent one. A celebration of my lack of tests and papers and Mike's break between classes, it was the best weekend I've had in a while. The only thing I didn't get to do that I really wanted to was see The Avengers again (technically that's Marvel's The Avengers, because you wouldn't want to get it mixed up with an older movie that wasn't very good and has basically nothing in common with this movie, which was amazing).

Mike and I spent basically all day Sunday doing Dropquest 2012, the surprisingly addictive online puzzle quest for more Dropbox space. Mike and I are an excellent puzzle-solving team because we have very complementary strengths. We haven't finished yet, mostly because it took up our day on Saturday so we decided to take a little time off, but we are almost done. I highly recommend playing. The big prizes are spoken for, but you can still get some extra dropbox storage space out of it. Plus, it's totally satisfying, and it made me feel like I was doing an online scavenger hunt Ready Player One style, which was super cool.

The rest of the delightfully rainy weekend was spent reading books written for teenagers, watching The X-Files, booking hotels in Belize, and baking a pie. We spent most of our time on the couch. It was really great, considering how busy we have been. I've really enjoyed our time together and I'm not really looking forward to it ending tomorrow. Don't you just love weekends like that?

Here are the books I've been reading, if anyone is interested:

I recommend both of these if you like teen fiction adventures of wildly different kinds. If you like The Hunger Games, you will probably like Divergent. If you like beautiful, dark, poetic fantasy, you will probably like Daughter of Smoke and Bone

The pie I made was a Lemonade Peach pie, which sounded just too awesome to not make. It was in my new pie bible, and it was so easy that I'm a little embarrassed. I even used frozen pie crust and frozen peaches (hey, the recipe called for it!!). Yes, it actually has lemonade concentrate in the filling, plus I added a little squeeze of lemon juice on top of the fruit. It tasted fantastic.

How was your weekend/last couple of weeks?
