Last Week I:
Listened To: Ask Again, Yes - I finished this today while I was working on projects. Tomorrow I'll start Sarah Blake's latest, The Guest Book.
Watched: Volleyball, baseball, football (lots of football, but then you already knew that), and today I even watched some WNBA basketball.
Read: Elizabeth Strout's followup to Olive Kitteridge, Olive, Again. Loved it. I'm about half way done as well with M. C. Beaton's Death of A Witch and Jeffrey Rosen's Conversations with RBG.
Made: The plus side of all of these cool, dreary days is that I've been inspired to cook! This week I brined and roasted a chicken (why have I never brined a chicken before?!), made chili, chicken soup with orzo, and French onion soup and before I head to bed I'm going to put together a chicken potpie with the rest of that roasted chicken.
This Week I’m:
Planning: The reorganization of the basement continues. I finished the first stage today; it's always exciting when these kinds of things work out the way you were hoping they would. This week I'll start stage two, which is bound to terrify The Big Guy even more than stage one did!
Thinking About: A meeting I went to the other day about the new library branch that will be built in the next couple of years near me. They are just in the very beginning stages of planning and asked for community involvement to see what we'd like to see included. There weren't many people at the meeting so my friend and I really felt like our voices were heard.
Feeling: Tired, in a good way that says "you've accomplished a lot this weekend."
Looking forward to: Another quiet week. I don't think there's a thing on my calendar that I have to do this week. But, as my mom reminded me last week, that can change quickly at my house!
Question of the week: I broke down and had my first pumpkin coffee this weekend. Have you started having all things pumpkin yet?
