We made a tour this week through Missouri. We shopped, we ate, we drank, we boated, we ate and drank some more. We discovered that my husband doesn't believe his GPS and that eating out with two vegetarians, especially a very picky one, is complicated (thank heavens for menus on the internet). We drank coffee made from ridiculously expensive beans, hit the tasting room at Boulevard Brewery, sat on a river bluff listening to music and drinking wine, toured "castle" ruins, and spent the day on the lake in a boat tubeing. We fought, we laughed, we had fun and created great memories. Love my family!
This Week I'm:
Listening To: I talked the crew into listening to some RadioLab podcasts while we were driving but mostly we've been listening to angry young men music. I'll be back to The Swan Thieves this week and hope to pick up some new audio books this week.
Watching: Preseason NFL football and the season finale of "Longmire."
Making: The only thing I've even made since we got home was a warm pasta salad. I'm going to have to get back in the cooking groove this week! I know for sure tomatoes and hot banana peppers will be involved - our plants are producing like crazy.
Planning: Absolutely nothing at the moment.
Grateful for: my kids who pushed me to do something this week that I didn't think I could do. I had so much fun and need to remember to be more daring.
Enjoying: A cool, rainy day. I'm about to go spend my last day off reading; I'll be finishing Jill Smolinski's Objects Of My Affection.
Feeling: Lazy. Oh well - I'm going with it.
Looking forward to: Not going back to work, I'll tell you that. What are you looking forward to this week?
