Last Week I:
Listened To: Trying to finish up Special Topics in Calamity Physics. I'm 16 hours into this 22 hour book and it is finally interesting me. I've only stuck it out this long because I can listen to it at double time when it drags.
Read: I finished Jojo Moyes' Still Me and I enjoyed it much more than After You. It's not Me Before You but this time Moyes doesn't seem to have been trying to be that book and just gone on to tell the story of this character that we've fallen in love with.
Made: Lot of salads, BLT's, naked pasta with tomatoes and basil, cucumber dip, and my grandmother's peach custard recipe. I'm not a huge fan of pies but I do love this recipe and I'm a little disappointed not to have any leftover.
Enjoyed: Dinner and drinks with friends after the movie. We hit up new places for dinner and drinks. The place we ate at is definitely one we'll visit again. Not so sure about the other place, except that they do have a great patio.
This Week I’m:
Planning: Refinishing a plant stand that my grandfather built. It'll make the perfect housewarming present for my kiddos who have a virtual jungle of plants in their house and a keen appreciation for things with history.
Thinking About: Food and books to pack for the weekend. You know how my mind works!
Feeling: Tired. I'm going to bed early tonight.
Looking forward to: Seeing my kids on Friday and a long weekend!
Question of the week: I'm taking up food to make some of Mini-me's favorites while we're there. If you were him, what would you want me to bring?
