Last Week I:
Listened To: As for books, I'm a little over half way through Kate Atkinson's A God In Ruins. As for music, I listened to Brandi Carlile's latest album, In These Silent Days - love, love it!
Read: Unbound: My Story of Liberation and the Birth of the Me Too Movement by Tarana Burke.
Made: Ramen soup, pasta with creamy roasted tomato sauce, chicken and vegetable hand pies - yep, it's gotten much cooler and we're happy to cook heartier, warm meals again.
Enjoyed: Book club on Tuesday, an overnight visit with my dad on Friday night, breakfast with two of my kiddos and my dad yesterday, a long phone call with Mini-me yesterday, and having Miss H spend the weekend.
This Week I’m:
Planning: Miss H and I sorted through clothes that she had left here for various reasons and she got rid of two 38-gallon garbage bags full. Now I need to sort out which are good enough to donate and get them to a women's shelter. This has also freed up half a closet in my office so I'll be doing some reorganization in there as well.
Thinking About: Miss H is heading home right now and driving through severe weather which, of course, has both of her parents entirely consumed with tracking her progress and the storm cell. Being a parent means you never stop worrying.
Feeling: Blah. I hate days like today. I need my sunshine.
Looking forward to: Next Sunday would have been my mom's 88th birthday. To celebrate her, we have asked 88 people to do something nice to celebrate her. My dad called her "Nice Lady;" she loved to do things for other people and we are so hoping that people will take a page out of her notebook. I'm eager to hear what things people do.
Question of the week: If I tasked you to do something nice for others, what's the simplest thing you can think of to do?
