Here is a bit of what we’ve been up to lately!
1. What we’re eating this week…
Leftovers. And cleaning out the freezer and fridge before we move. Texas chicken chowder was one of our favorites this past week when we had a cold snap (again).
2. What I’m reminiscing about:
Baseball season. J is missing it a lot right now, and we are missing watching him play!
3. What I’m loving:
These two palettes are my favorite right now. Pick them up before the Sephora sale ends!
4. What we’ve been up to:
Schoolwork at home. And long walks on the sidewalk around the neighborhood.
5. What I’m dreading:
Probably the final pack out of our house. We’ve got most things done, but all those little things you have to do right at the end is stressful to me because I like to have it all done in advance.
6. What I’m working on:
Converting a face to face course to online only for the Fall. It’s about a 60-100 hour process so that’ll be most of my summer work. I’m also trying to create a schedule for it, so it’s not completely overwhelming. I took a tip from Mo Willems and am working on a color coded spreadsheet. The screenshot above is just the first page.
7. What I’m excited about:
Sitting out on my back porch this fall with this backdrop.
8. What I’m watching/reading:
The Last Dance. We are watching this with the boys on ESPN2 (the ESPN version leaves in all language, etc, just FYI). If you loved basketball as a kid, or have kids who love sports or basketball right now, it’s a great documentary to watch.
Seinfeld Episodes. We are going through all the episodes of Seinfeld at night, because there is hardly anything else on. And I cannot watch another episode of House Hunters.
I’m reading The Tatooist of Aushwitz during the day. I tried to read this before bed, but then I couldn’t sleep, so I’m reading it during our quiet reading times in the afternoon.
I’m reading Living Forever Chic at night. Just a fun escape from our everyday reality.
9. What I’m listening to:
Samin Nosrat’s podcast Home Cooking.
10. What I’m wearing:
Shorts and T-Shirts or exercise clothes.
11. What I’m doing this weekend:
12. What I’m looking forward to next month:
The pool at my parents, and maybe getting my hair done if things open back up.
13. What else is new:
