Weekly Update

Out the window:
It's cold and sunny, which is nice for wearing a new sweater to work, but later this week it is going to get into the 60s. That is so wrong.

On my smile:
Lots. And often.

On my Kindle:
I was all set to read Roadside Picnic, by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. It was loaded up on the kindle and ready to go. But somehow, I ended up opening up The Tiger's Wife, by Tea Obrecht, instead. I'm halfway through and enchanted and curious.

On the Roku:
Still more nothing. It's nice to hear myself think, actually.

On the menu:
On Saturday, I made my first-ever paleo meal. It was an amazing dish of roasted Cornish game hen, sweet potatoes, and a base with onions, garlic and shitake mushrooms. I served the whole thing with steamed asparagus, and it was so good I had it again on Sunday with Lizzy after Pilates.

On my To Do List:
The meditation zone is still in progress, but it languishes in favor of more pressing concerns:
  • Apply for a second job
  • Gather the paperwork for the DMV, Social Security office, and court.
  • Breathe

In the Crock Pot:
Roast beef. We are going to try it with sweet potatoes. You never know.

On the needle:
Starting the Skipping Stones Promised Vest. I have retooled the pattern a number of times.

On the wire
Why New Year's Resolutions Suck (and how to fix them)

No words needed:

Lesson learned the past few days:

On my mind:
The sixes: The coming six months, six weeks, six hours.
