Life: It Goes On - March 23

Is it spring? Is it winter? Apparently Mother Nature's just not sure yet. Which, I suppose, is par for the course in March. But after the coldest winter EVER (okay, maybe not EVER, but in decades), I'm ready to be able to throw open windows, haul out the flower pots, and enjoy evenings on the patio.

In the meantime, 40 Bags In 40 Days continues and having to be inside is helping me make great progress with that. From things as small as reducing what I'm carrying in my purse to the pickup load that The Big Guy took to the landfill today, I'm making great progress. All this from someone who makes a regular habit of purging "stuff!"

Here's What I'm:

Listening To: I'm essentially caught up with podcasts so this week I'll start listening to Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm by Kate Douglas Wiggin. It's one of the books on my Classics Club challenge list. I've got some doubts about it but have given myself permission to give up on it early if I'm not enjoying it.

Watching: Miss H and I watched a couple of episodes of "Orange Is The New Black" on Netflix but mostly it's been a lot of basketball for this girl. My Husker men got knocked out early but the women are moving on and our Creighton Bluejays play their second game tonight. But I'll watch any game...and I have!

Reading: I finally finished Outlander and will have a review this week. Right now I'm reading The Frangipani Hotel by Violet Kupersmith, also for a review this week.

Making: We're back to comfort food this week: asparagus/mushroom soup, brownies, homemade mac and cheese, and steel cut oatmeal.

Planning: We've been doing some major furniture rearranging this past week and we'll be getting that wrapped up this week and 40 Bags In 40 Days will continue. Even BG is getting on board!

Grateful for: A job where I could decide at 11:30 on Friday that I wanted to leave to go home and watch basketball and it was okay.

Loving: Seeing green in my lawn!

Feeling:  A lightness every time I finished sorting through a new area.

Thinking: I need to kick it up a notch on the working out and kick in with my new eating plan.

Looking forward to: Starting some building projects - shelves in a couple of rooms and a platform bed. I cannot find the shelves I need so I'm just going to have to make them. I have never used a power saw before - this could get interesting!

What have you been watching this week?
