The Goldfinch. This book is HEAVY. And I don't mean emotionally... I mean literally. I've been reading so many e-books lately that I think my wrist muscles have atrophied.
(I also meant emotionally. Oh, Theo... bless your heart.)
In the car, I'm "reading" Five Days at Memorial, the story of the staff and patients stuck at the hospital in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina.
Megan and I met up for a little writing date at Spyhouse and, after much procrastination, did some prompts from the book Old Friend From Far Away, a book which I will be purchasing tomorrow during lunch.
I have a theory. Every time I've looked at my Accuweather app for the past two months, it has said that the forecast two weeks later will be in the 40s. Yet that 40 degree day never comes. I'm pretty sure Accuweather does this so that people have a glimmer of hope to get them through polar vortexes and blizzards and refrain from throwing themselves off buildings.
You know the slightly bitter smell of Flonase as it makes its way down your nasal cavity? That.
As happy as I am, every year at this time part of me wishes I was in New Orleans. Or at least that someone would send me a king cake.
(When I get really homesick I watch this video over and over again.)
I have three Best Picture nominees left to see before the Oscars next Sunday. Here's hoping I can make it to all of them this week!
My friends in the South will be horrified to know that I wore white jeans today.
This weekend. It was the perfect mix of food, friends, culture, and Hannah Horvath in a yellow mesh thank top. (There was some quality Girls time Friday night.)
We just booked a vacation to ISRAEL! I'm itching to sit on the floor surrounded by travel guides and plan our trip. Honestly, sometimes I enjoy planning trips just as much as I enjoy going on them. Anyone need a travel agent?
There's a corner of my our guest room that's starting to overflow with packages that need to be sent. A wedding gift from October. A birthday present from November. A wedding gift from December. For as long as I can remember, I've had some kind of mental block about sending gifts on time. Doesn't look like that's going to be changing anytime soon.
A few hours ago we got back from North Coast Nosh, an event put on by a local food blog.. and I'm feeling a little full.
