It is a beautiful sweater and quite warm, so luckily we have a blustery day yesterday when I could wear it. The color is especially nice.
Yesterday was the last day of winter term and my graduate class had a poster session which was a huge success. This has been one of my favorite classes of all time in my teaching career, what a treat for me! So next week is finals week (grading, meetings) and the week after that is spring break (conference in Cali). Generally, this is the tough time of year since there is very little downtime between the two terms. I think I'm pretty much all set for Spring term; now i just need to get set for the conference.
-melting a bag of chocolate chips
-stirring in a bag of coconut
-pressing them into nest shapes
-putting jelly beans on the top
-putting them in the fridge to harden.
My guess is that unsweetened coconut will make a more 'authentic' birds nest than the sweetned I used, but I'll cope.
Thanks for playing the movie game. I'm still looking for answers on #1, #3, #9 and #10!
