Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

Sunday Reflections Button

Happy Sunday! I thought I would shake things up a bit and change the format of my Sunday posts to make them a little easier to read and maybe a bit more interesting as well. Plus, change is good.

Reading: Empire of Sin by Gary Krist, a nonfiction account of New Orleans history during the Roaring Twenties before the end of the year. For the new year, I started Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo because a nonfiction book isn’t exciting enough for a new year.

Listening: The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski because I am a glutton for punishment and always want to compare the book to the show or vice versa. For music, I have had Spotify’s Classical Essentials playlist on in the background lately. It makes for a pleasant alternative to the louder music I tend to play while at work.

Watching: Football, football, and more football. College playoff games, and bowl games, and NFL games. What can I say? I love the game!

Cooking: Cilantro-lime chicken, which I turned into burrito bowls with cilantro-lime rice, and black beans. Tonight, I plan to make mushroom risotto paired with a salad and some fresh bread. With the snow we received overnight, it is such a great comfort food meal.

Enjoying: My clean house and the end of the holidays. Yesterday, I switched out my Christmas/Yule decorations for my winter decor. Plus, I cleaned the house because a new year requires cleanliness. There is something about a snowstorm that makes me feel a desire to clean before I can settle down to get cozy.

Planning: The year. We have two weddings to attend, Holly’s graduation and graduation party, our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, five or six dance competitions plus nationals, and Holly going to college in the next twelve months. Plus, our graduation gift to Holly is a trip to Europe, something we also need to plan and organize. It’s a lot, and I want to make sure we stay on top of everything. Jim is working on the trip. I’m in charge of everything else.

Feeling: Hopeful. I ended the year feeling really good about what I was doing to feel better and get better. Plus, I spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to do with my blog and social media. I finished all my outstanding reviews, spent at least two days setting up planners and trackers. I feel like I’m in a really good spot to make 2022 a fantastic year.

Upcoming: This upcoming week is going to be a bit crazier than normal, but I like it. Three workouts, a therapy session, a manicure, and Holly’s booster shot are all on the calendar. Plus, I am working with the school district on a project, and we have a meeting this week. It doesn’t sound like much, but it is enough to keep me on my toes.

What are you reading, watching, cooking, planning, or feeling these days?
