As I look outside my window: It's been a rainy and gray kind of week. While I've grown accustomed to the near-constant sunshine here in California, I really enjoyed the sound and feel of the rain this past week. It was a nice change.
Right now I am: Writing this post waiting for lunch monitoring the boys trying to give myself a few minutes to listen to a podcast and write this post. I'm definitely looking forward to tomorrow morning's book club. A few hours without kids, car time without anyone, and some good food.
On my bedside table: Demonglass and Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins. I picked up the other two books in this trilogy to have a bit of a YA interlude to my reading.
On my tv this week: The Magicians S3 -- very good! I can't wait to see what happens in the last few episodes of this season.
Listening to: Not a lot. I did catch up on a few podcasts (NPR Politics, Pod Save America, The Simple Show, Hey Crafty Babes) that I've fallen behind on while at the retreat last weekend.
On the menu for this week:
- Monday - It's my birthday, so... I have no idea. I put a frozen meal on the meal plan, but I don't know what I'll end up doing.
- Tuesday - Sweet Potato Nachos
- Wednesday - Ham and Potato Soup
- Thursday - Leftovers
- Friday - Black Bean Chicken
- Saturday - Blackened Salmon
- Sunday - Hawaiian Pulled Pork Nachos
On my to do list: I'm sure a lot of little things but I can't think of a single one right now... I think I need to do a task list check-in.
Happening this week: I'm going to try and document my 2018 Week in the Life this week, so lots of pictures will be taken and stories being notated.
- Monday - My birthday! Nothing planned so far.
- Tuesday - Picnic at Ardenwood Farm (they have baby goats!!!)
- Wednesday - Bay Area Discovery Museum
- Thursday - Errands Day
- Friday - Home day?
- Saturday - Stamp Club
- Sunday - ???
What I am creating: Trying to dive back into the Family Project Life album from 2017. I'm stuck in April, but have printed the photos for April - July. Just need to buckle down, do the journaling, and embellish a bit. I'm hoping to get at least April and May done with coming week.
My simple pleasures: Hot tea, all the hot tea!
Looking around the house: Things are picked up pretty well, but that means I need to pick a room and do a deep clean. Oh joy.
From the camera: Picnic at the park before the big rains came...
