Here’s what’s happening in my world. Right now.
Remembering: Our awesome visit to the MFA last week to see the Class Distinctions exhibit. It was crowded (it was near the end of the run) but I’m so glad we went.
Watching: All the movies. The Oscars are just around the corner and I have the same goal as every year – to try and see all of the Best Picture nominees. Dare I say that I’m on track for this? Time will tell.
Listening: To podcasts. I recently discovered Happier by Gretchen Rubin and I’m going back and plugging my way through an entire year of episodes. I’m still enjoying Books on the Nightstand, Literary Disco and 2 Knit Lit Chics. Serial is back and, while I can’t say I’m truly hooked, I am not going to stop listening.
Reading: My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante.
Visiting: With great people and friends. This week I had lunch with the “band wives” – the group of women married to the men in Dale’s band. We have been together many many times over the years but this is the first time we have ever gotten together for lunch and I hope it becomes a regular thing because it was wonderful. We shared stories, laughed and cried, and I remembered – once again – that this is a group of women who will always, always have my back.
Cooking: Lots of dinner in the Instant Pot. Still going strong and recipes I’ve added to my repertoire include chicken noodle soup, chicken piccata, pot roast, and homemade yogurt.
Training: With a new personal trainer. It’s scary starting with someone new but it’s good for me and I’m pushing through the fear.
Anticipating: Snow this weekend? Depends on who you listen to at the moment. It could be snowmageddon or it could miss us completely. My bet is it will be something in between.
Hoping: For a Pats victory on Sunday.
Laughing: Over this knitting time calculator. $2250 for a pair of fingerless mitts and $11,250 for a lace shawl. I’m sure my friends will be jumping to place their orders.
