Reading: A Day of Fallen Night by Samantha Shannon
Listening: Me and White Supremacy by Layla F. Saad and My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell
Watching: The new season of Criminal Minds: Evolution is outstanding. You can’t believe what a difference a few curse words and a bit more gore can make. We are also working through Peaky Blinders again before starting the final season.
Cooking: We are hosting Holly’s boyfriend’s family for dinner, so I am marinating chicken for chicken fajitas, which I will serve with black beans, fresh guacamole, and fresh pico de gallo alongside corn and flour tortillas. Dessert is carrot cake or gluten-free blondies. I also made two loaves of banana bread per Holly’s request. I have plans to make enchiladas this week and anything else Holly wants for her last week of vacation.
Enjoying: I enjoyed my time alone last week while Jim and Holly were gone. I missed them, to be sure, but I had fun doing my own thing for a few days. Even the dogs behaved.
Planning: Nothing. It’s nice.
Feeling: Happy. It’s such an elusive feeling (and may require more medication than I expected), but I am so glad to be happy again.
