Reading: Scorpica by Greer Macallister
Listening: Cosmos by Carl Sagan
Watching: Football! And The Witcher because I wanted to introduce Jim to it and refresh my memory before I started season two.
Cooking: The weather still warrants gut-warming weather, so I have red beans and rice on the menu. I also plan to make a chicken stir-fry and try a recipe for meat-lovers pizza stuffed shells. Cheese and pasta are my jam.
Enjoying: I am enjoying watching football this post-season. The whole family is getting into it for the first time. I am also really enjoying our weather. Yes, it is cold, and yes, it has been cloudy almost all the time. Still, I love winter weather. The cold air makes me feel so alive, and the dark evenings are a great excuse to light all the candles and use all the blankets. The hygge season is the best!
Feeling: Too much these days. I try to remain hopeful and cheerful because I am tired of being angry all the time. At the same time, I notice more and more just how rude people have become. Plus, no matter how hard you try, you can never avoid the headlines. It is all just a little too much for me to handle with grace. I have never been able to let anything go.
Upcoming: Jim and I are flying out to Salt Lake City/ Park City for a very brief visit. For Jim, it is a business trip. For me, it means the chance to get out of the state and the Midwest for the first time in at least three years. I am simultaneously looking forward to and anxious about it because that seems to define life these days.
