This Week I'm:
Listening To: NW still; I'm about two-thirds of the way through it now and enjoying it much more. Knocked out a couple of podcasts during workouts and on our trip I introduced The Big Guy to "Hamilton."
Watching: Baseball, football, and The Voice. The Cubs win made a lot of people in my family very happy so that made us happy.
Reading: Hoping to finish Fingersmith in the next day or so; not much reading time lately. Next up, for book club, is Lauren Groff's Fates and Furies.
Making: I froze three quarts of homemade tomato soup, two quarts of apple slices, five containers of apple butter and 1 quart of applesauce. I'm fired up to get some more soups made and frozen for the winter - love looking into my freezer and seeing so many things ready quick, delicious meals.
Planning: On doing a purge and sort of paperwork. Because, somehow the title to Mini-me's car has vanished from the file where we keep "very important papers" and he needs to get his car licensed in his new state. I can't tell you how little I'm looking forward to sorting through every single piece of paper in the house to find where it got filed by accident.
Thinking About: My bed. Two nights in a bed that's not ours, that's only a double, and two five hour drives in three days has me tired.
Enjoying: The weekend with family, getting to meet The Princess, have some of our favorite pizza, and enjoy a couple hours at one of my brother's and his wife's favorite vineyards (which blessed us with a magnificent sunset as we left).
Feeling: In love! I'm officially nicknaming my new great-niece The Princess because that little lady can bring a roomful of adults to a standstill to coo and ah over her. Miss H repeatedly threatened to tuck The Princess into her purse and bring her home (which gives me hope that Miss H might yet reconsider her statement that she is never going to have kids).
Looking forward to: A quiet week. Because that's how this introvert recharges her batteries.
Question of the week: I'm still looking for book club ideas for next year. What was the book you read this year that most made you want to talk about it with other people?
