Happy Monday, dear readers! Here’s a look at what’s going on here, currently.
Reading: Wish You Were Here by Jodi Picoult. I don’t generally read her books and I’m not sure I’m really ready to read a novel about the pandemic but here we are.
Knitting: Trusty Toe Up socks and Sean’s Santa Hat. I’m seriously thinking I will start Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Daytripper Cardigan with the MDK crowd on February 1st. I highly doubt I will finish it by the end of the month but I bought the yarn in Iceland and this will be a good way to get going on it.
Listening: To Meat Loaf and remembering my teen years and how much the Bat Out of Hell album meant to me back then. I would listen to For Crying Out Loud over and over and over, feeling all the feels.
Watching: Football. And Women of the Movement, which was excellent and I highly recommend it. We just finished Emily in Paris so we will probably be starting Season 2 of All Creatures Great and Small this week.
Drinking: Lots of La Croix. Watermelon and Key Lime are my favorite flavors. I’m not doing Dry January but I have cut way back on alcohol consumption since last October and I’m only having a martini or a single glass of wine once/week . . . if even that. I’m sleeping better and I’ve lost weight and I (mostly) don’t miss it.
Learning: To use our air fryer. I bought it on Black Friday but didn’t use it until recently and I’m really enamored with it. Last night I made frozen chicken nuggets and they were crunchy and delicious. French fries are bomb, too.
Driving: To the ocean and thinking how grateful I am that we we live so close.
Going: To work and that’s about it. Omicron seems to be slowing down in MA but until I see real evidence that we’re on the backside of this I’m at home. And I mostly don’t mind.
Taking: Selfies. I made myself a promise that I would take weekly selfies in 2022 and so far, so good.
Juggling: Staffing at the library due to covid. It’s been . . . challenging. I feel like I check those CDC guidelines every day as different/unique situations arise.
Marveling: At how quickly Fred and George are growing. They sure don’t look like kittens anymore!
Let’s have a great week!
