We are officially in that in between part of the year where one day you come out to find some sleet on your car and the next day you are eating dinner on the patio. Yep, you read that right - we ate dinner on the patio on Wednesday. BG thought I was crazy when I ran in the house telling him to help get food ready in a hurry so we could get outside while it was still 70 degrees out. But you know how much I have been looking forward for dinner-on-the-patio season!
This Week I'm:
Listening To: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides which I have been putting off for several months since I found out it was a book about a hermaphrodite. I just wasn't sure how anyone could write a book that long about that subject. I'm about 20% of the way through it now and just blown away by Eugenides writing. Why did I wait so long?!
Watching: College basketball since Thursday. "Our" teams haven't fared well this week but I am so into cheering for the teams I picked on my men's bracket!
Reading: I finally finished The Revolution of Marina M and had to turn to something completely different which ended up being Mallory Ortberg's The Merry Spinster. Fairy tales always pick me back up!
Making: Besides the aforementioned reubens, I made some chicken and rice last Sunday which we've used in a number of ways this week, including chicken nachos. We also did BLT salads.
Planning: The bridal shower is next weekend so I'm putting the final touches on that, including putting together a game which is taking much longer than I anticipated.
Thinking About: My kids are big on my mind this weekend.
Feeling: Edgy and unable to focus. Which is not good considering I need to read a lot today to finish my book club book before Tuesday. Which leads me into...
Looking forward to: Book club Tuesday and shower next weekend. The shower means I get to see family I haven't seen in months so I can't wait for that!
Question of the week: Games at bridal showers - yea or nay?
