Life: It Goes On - February 2
We got some snow for the first time in weeks last night - a lovely light, slow snow that started late in the evening. Perfect if you're all home and can just sit and watch it. Not as perfect when you have adult children that insist on being out on slick roads. You know the drill - mom can't sleep until everyone is home safe!
Here's What I'm:
Listening To: Still plugging away on Shirley but I will admit that I have picked the speed up to times 1.5 to get over the slow parts, and there are plenty of slow parts. And what's up with a book where the title character doesn't even show up until Chapter 11?
Reading: Finishing A Different Sun today and then it's on to Under A Wide and Starry Sky, both for TLC reviews. I'm supposed to start Outlander for the Tuesday Book Talk group on Goodreads but I'm going to have to put that off for a week.
Making: Homemade enchilada sauce with a new recipe for beef and onion enchiladas and bean and cheese enchiladas. I can't stop cooking for at least five - we ate enchiladas for three meals.
Planning: Continued work on the boys' rooms. Mini-me's room is, sadly for him, looking less and less like his room. He can have it back if he ever needs to come home. In the mean time, I need the library space.
Grateful for: Good food, good friends, good conversation. Such a great way to recharge your batteries.
Feeling: Like my house needs some orange. I foresee a trip to Home Goods for pillows in my future.
Thinking: I'm ready to be able to start sitting out on the patio - how many more months do I have to wait?
Looking forward to: Well, you know me - the Super Bowl, although I will be sitting at home watching it by myself. I pretty much reserve Sunday nights to decompress before the work week begins. Will you be watching? Who will you be cheering for?
