Time for another round of what are you…
Eating: Anything with strawberries! We went picking last week and have made strawberry muffins, pancakes, and waffles for breakfast almost everyday since. Other than that, a little boring. Tonight we are having turkey, mozzarella, and spinach meatballs.
Watching: Not much of anything. Too busy to sit down for a show and our Internet (satellite) is the pits here. Easily my least favorite thing about living in the country.
Listening: On the other hand, I have been listening to so many podcasts lately both as I drive to and work around the house. I’ve been on a This American Life kick lately. If you are new to the show, start here. I didn’t, but most of my faves are on the list. (currently working my way through the short list)
Reading: Fiction: Defending Jacob, Empty Mansions
Nonfiction: Really intrigued by Spiritual Mothering. Haven’t read it yet, but it’s in my queue.
Working on: oh just the never-ending house list. N has been ripping out ceiling wainscotting and whitewashing the planks underneath. I have been painting trim and banisters. Pricing out carpet, wood, and tile for upstairs. Doesn’t get much more “welcome to adulthood” than that!
Looking forward to: Other than our upcoming family vacation (!!), just simply enjoying the spoils of summer. Having N around is always a luxury. Time has just creeped along this week as everyday has felt like a Saturday. We have picnicked, zooed, biked, field tripped, and just soaked up time together. Both of the girls really seem to eat up all of the extra attention. I love it too.
