Life: It Goes On - February 15

Moving a little slowly this morning - much, too much fun with a group of dear friends last night. Our hosts suggested that we all tell the stories about how we met - first one spouse and then the other gave their version and couldn't be interrupted - and it was so fun to learn so much about each other. What a fun way to spend Valentine's Day!

This Week I'm:

Listening To: I'll be finishing Life After Life tomorrow and it's bound to end up as one of my favorite books of the year. I'm even tempted to listen to it again at some point. I'll take a couple of days to catch up with podcasts before I start a new book.

Watching: "Fixer Upper" and "Rehab Addict" on HGTV. Every time I watch them, I want to start knocking down walls, adding crown molding in every room, and lightening things up.

Reading: I read Tatjana Soli's The Last Good Paradise this week for an upcoming TLC Book Tours review and I'm working my way through The Autobiography of Malcolm X, my book club's selection for this month. I've been racing through books the past couple of weeks and I'm so looking forward to picking up that just suits my mood later this week.

Making: BLT salad, black bean lasagna and beef lasagna (Mini-me was with us so I tried something new to make a vegetarian version), honey mustard roasted new potatoes...I'm at a loss as to what we ate the rest of the week. Must not have been too memorable!

Planning: 40 Bags In 40 Days starts again which is my big incentive to kick it into high gear with the decluttering and also to be a bit more ruthless in my decision making. I've decided to focus first on the bedrooms and my office; there are always clothes to be gotten rid of!

Grateful for: Time this week with friends and family.

Enjoying: A lazy day. There's much I should be doing but I'm giving myself permission today not to do it. Except, of course, for that bag I need to get filled today.

Looking forward to: A busy week including a book event and book club. What are you looking forward to this week?
