Happy New Year! Hope this finds those of you who've been hit with snowstorms and bitter cold all safe and warm. We are finally heading into warmer temps; I'm so glad to be able to put away my parka for a bit, at least. You know you're starting to get acclimated to the cold when it's 10 degrees out and you decide it's not cold enough to put your hat on!
This Week I'm:
Listening To: I started Lauren Groff's The Monsters of Templeton this week. I've only just started the second disc; but, so far, it's hard to imagine that this book was written by the same author who wrote Fates and Furies. I mean, it has a ghost and a giant lake monster. Still, I'm enjoying it, so far.
Reading: Still working on Far From The Madding Crowd. I haven't actually done much reading this week - between all of the television watching and focus on putting things in order, there just hasn't been much time.
Planning: I've spent a lot of time this week getting my bullet journal set up for the year. I'm pretty stoked that Miss H has gotten herself a journal as well; she is all in, buying washi tape and stickers.

Thinking About: I can't stop thinking about how fun it was to celebrate Christmas with Mini-me and Mrs. S last weekend. Mrs. S was so excited about everything she got, from leggings to a crockpot. It's nice to give gifts so someone who is so demonstrably pleased with even the most utilitarian gifts. Her favorite gift was a book I had made of pictures from their wedding. It was so fun to watch both of them go through it and remember that weekend.
Enjoying: Cocoa, electric blankets, and time with my girl.
Feeling: Sad that we're back to five-day workweeks starting this week.
Looking forward to: The Winter Olympics. I'm seriously thinking about taking a couple of days off work just to stay home and watch curling!
Question of the week: How do you survive the letdown after the holidays? Or do you appreciate a return to normality?
