Listening To: I'm about two-thirds of the way through The Emperor's Children and still enjoying it. When I've been working out, I've been listening to podcasts including The History Chicks talking about Elizabeth Keckley (who I first learned about in Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker) and Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for U. S. President.
Watching: Oh my lord, we are (slowly!) switching from cable t.v. to streaming t.v. which has meant no television for part of a couple of nights. We did manage to work in a couple of episodes of Orange Is The New Black and I caught a tribute to Debbie Reynolds Friday night which meant that I got to watch Singin' In The Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Brown [insert heart emoji!]
Making: Chef's salad, tosadas, baked chicken and homemade rolls, chicken noodle soup. It was a week to make use of what we had on hand.
Planning: Some home improvements because wedding. Nothing like a big event to get you to do the things around your house you've been wanting to get done. New kitchen sink and faucet, new kitchen hardware and some painting on the first floor are first up.
Thinking About: Ways to continue to support the resistance without allowing it to get me so down.
Enjoying: An evening out with some of our oldest friends. Politics were mostly not allowed. Except that I did find out that my friend's eighty+ year old mother had marched which warmed my heart! Lots of talk about their four-month-old granddaughter was allowed!
Feeling: See above.
Looking forward to: Finally catching up with Game of Thrones, since we now have HBO.
Question of the week: Feminism - what do you think about the way this word is viewed? I'm really planning on upping my feminist reading this year, which is to say any book about women who step out of traditional female roles.
