Life: It Goes On - July 12

Happy Sunday! It's a very happy Sunday at my house. Mini-me and Ms. S are here! Even though we can't hug them and have to try to stay six feet apart from each other, after six months, it's so good to have them here. We spent six hours sitting on the patio last night, talking and laughing and life felt almost normal (albeit with a lot of hand sanitizing and Lysol). Today will be largely the same and it's the best medicine for a pandemic (well, next to a cure or vaccine!). 

Last Week I: 

 Listened To: I finished Brit Bennet's The Vanishing Half and this weekend I'm finishing up Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow. Ms. S happens to be reading The New Jim Crow so we're having a great time talking about it. 

Watched: We finally got back to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel this weekend. We're watching Season 3 and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. 

Read: I started Geraldine Brooks' Year of Wonders, after a friend was appalled that I had never read it. A book about the Black Plague sort of seems like rubbing salt in a wound right now but it's so good.

What the pie should
look like - we'll see!
Made:
 Mini-me surprised me this week by telling me that he's given up dairy products. It has meant a change in food plans for the weekend. He's always loved caprese salad so I tried substituting tofu for the mozzarella and he proclaimed that a success. Today we'll be making a vegan chocolate pecan pie; the friend who gave me the recipe raves about it. 

Enjoyed: See above - there's nothing I enjoy more than time with my kids. I only wish Mini-him had been able to be with us. 

This Week I’m:  

Planning: After this weekend, it's all about planning for Miss H's move. She laughed at me when I did a scale drawing and cut out scale "furniture." But now we know what fits, what doesn't fit and what we need to get. This is the part of moving I love!

Thinking About: My next project once I finish the shelves I'm working on for Miss H. You know I always need to be working on a project!

Feeling: Blessed. 

Looking forward to: Nothing much this week. It'll be a quiet week, mostly involving getting Miss H packed and ready to move. 

Question of the week: What activity do you most miss this summer?
