Thursday March 31
Grocery day, no table work in the morning.
We Didn’t Mean to Go to Sea. Faith and Life. First Christians. St Ignatius of Loyola. Lord of the Rings. A Pooh story, the one about Owl’s house being blown over and Piglet being brave, which was apropos since today was a very blusterous day. High winds and the power flickering all afternoon.
The kids tried to watch Wildest Africa, but with the power going out we lost the internet connection and Netflix was out. So I put on the dvd of The Tempest instead. They watched the first disc.
