We have such a busy week this week (see "Looking forward to:"); I'm not sure when I'll find much time to read other than during my lunches and I've hardly picked up my book all weekend. I hate to lose the reading momentum I've had lately! As I contemplate setting up a "Lisa" room and having a reading spot, I've been looking at my bookshelves and thinking how much I'd love to get to so many of those books.
This Week I'm:
Listening To: I'll start Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh. It's a long 'un so it's probably take me all of November to get through. Just now when I looked to check how to spell Ghosh's name, I found out this is the first in a trilogy. I'm kind of hating that - this better be something that works as stand alone.
Watching: Nothing new to report here other than some Husker volleyball. Hoping the Royals will bounce back tonight!
Reading: Joanne Harris' (Chocolat) Five Quarters of The Orange. There is just a Frenchness to Harris' stories that I love.
Making: Baked chicken for the coming week, lasagne for dinner today (including a broccoli version for Mini-me), more fried apples, and a pizza with a crust we bought at the French bakery which I will happily drive across town to get more of.
Grateful for: Having my family around today to celebrate my birthday early. It makes getting older not quite so bad!
Enjoying: The weather, the weather, the weather!
Feeling: Like my knee will actually be healed enough for me to dance at my nephew's wedding in a couple of weeks. I was beginning to wonder but two great days in a row have encouraged me.
What are you looking forward to this week?
