Listened To: I started this month's book club selection, A Spool of Blue Thread and it took me no time at all to remember why I used to read so much of Anne Tyler's work.
Watched: Lots of baseball and some NBA basketball because sports. Also, lots of HGTV. Between the later and Instagram, I'm feeling the urge to paint, rearrange furniture, redo my shelves...basically drive The Big Guy crazy!
Read: I finished Emma Cline's short story collection, Daddy (review this week) and started Ruth Ware's first book, In A Dark, Dark Wood. I have a couple of library books I should have started but I just wasn't feeling them and when Ti (Book Chatter) mentioned that she was reading Ware's book and then raved about it, I grabbed it off my shelf. I'm ready for something that just takes me away from everything.
Made: I made cast iron steaks the other night, with a mushroom and roasted tomato topping, then used the leftover steak to make a killer steak salad. Also made a quick and easy ice cream that tastes good but it so rich and fatty that we could only eat a little at a time. Still, it's something I'll tweak because it's fast to make and will be easy to modify.
Enjoyed: An evening on the patio Friday with Mini-him and an evening on the deck with friends last night.
This Week I’m:
Planning: Those aforementioned painting projects and a rearrangement of the pantry.
Thinking About: How much I hate the changes Google has made to the Blogger platform. It's so hard to go through comments now and I've been getting so much more spam (and most of it obscene). Why do sites/apps seem to be making changes just to make changes?
Feeling: Like I need to take a break from social media. It just makes me so mad, so sad, and so tired.
Looking forward to: Miss H is coming up this weekend and I'm already planning some yummy meals to have while she is here.
Question of the week: I've seen that some of you are knitting, some doing needlepoint, others, of course, are reading - what other ways are you finding to keep yourself from being overwhelmed by all that is going on?
