Life: It Goes On - January 7, 2019

Well, yesterday got away from me. Mini-him came over for lunch with his girlfriend so we spent the morning cleaning and prepping lunch and then he ended up staying through supper. Which I loved, of course. I just didn't get much done all day.

Can I just tell you how much I'm loving the winter we've been having this month? I mean, it has mostly been in the 40's and the 50's. And sunny with an occasional rain shower. That works for me! We've even been walking outside instead of going to the gym. If only all of the winter were like this!

Last Week I:

Listened To: My Year of Rest and Relaxation which I'll finish tomorrow. That is one odd book. I'm listening to the end to see if I can figure out how it ended up on so many best-of lists for 2018. Next up, I'm back to Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic.

Watched: Well, football, of course. Also, some Queer Eye For The Straight Guy and I binge watched four episode's of Tidying Up With Marie Kondo. She's a funny little woman, and I don't know that I will be thanking each thing I get rid of, but she's got some great ideas and I'm ready to give it a shot.

Read: Tomorrow I've got a review up for The Hollow Middle for a TLC Book Tour. Next up, I'm back to Jodi Picoult's A Spark of Light.

Made: I swear to you, I cannot remember a thing we had for meals last week. Yesterday's lunch was a fried potato buffet with bacon, purple onion, mushrooms, yellow bell pepper, jalapeƱo pepper, cheese, sour cream. Normally, we throw everything we have on hand into one pan but we were trying to accommodate several dietary restrictions. It worked really well and I think we'll do it again.

Enjoyed: Celebrating New Year's Eve with friends. We did cocktails and appetizers at their house, went out to dinner, then did dessert and champagne at our house. Low key but very fun.

This Week I’m: 

Planning: Well, of course, I'm planning on getting to work on Marie Kondo's suggestions. Now to talk the rest of the family into joining in.

Thinking About: Painting. A lot of painting. If it can't run away, I'm liable to drag it outside and paint it.

Feeling: Pretty stoked about my latest Facebook Marketplace find.  These decanters on their way to Mini-me and Ms. S for their bar.

Looking forward to: My half day. This working a full week is for the birds!

Question of the week: Are you excited about getting back to your normal routine?
