I haven't necessarily been Marie Kondo'ing my entire house but I've certainly been taking inspiration from her. I finished moving all of our DVDs into binders which has allowed me to move all of the albums back into the family room. And now I have a whole shelf open in my office. I'm leaving both it and the empty shelf on my family room shelves open for a bit while I think about exactly how I want to use them.
Last Week I:
Listened To: I FINALLY finished The Woman's Hour and I'm back to The Woman In The Window. I've got 7 hours of it left and only 2 days so I'm doubting I'll get through it before it has to go back and then I'll have to wait for it again. This is not the best way to listen to a book!
Read: I read In The Ground, which I reviewed, and started Pam Jenhoff's The Lost Girls of Paris which I'll review this week. I'm really enjoying it so far.
Made: Chicken enchiladas, triple chocolate brownies, chicken noodle casserole, chocolate chip cookies, street tacos.
Enjoyed: Helping Miss H work on her closet - we didn't so much try to see if things sparked joy so much as we were trying to leave her with only a wardrobe of things that fit and work for her right now. It felt good to make things work better for her but, even more, I enjoyed getting to spend a couple of hours just the two of us talking.
This Week I’m:
Thinking About: Getting back to putting together a weekly menu. We've been doing entirely too many what-should-we-have-for-dinner conversations at 5:30 p.m. lately.
Feeling: Like I need to tweak things around here - I'm already tired of the winter decor. I brought in some fresh yew for some bright green color. My cat immediately thought she might need to nibble on it. I disagreed.
Looking forward to: Family dinner to celebrate BG's birthday tomorrow night.
Question of the week: For those of you battling snow and extreme cold lately, what things are you doing to keep yourself from going stir crazy? Or are you one of those people who just bundles up and enjoys the things you can only do this time of year?
