A Reading Life...hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict, and also inspired by Lisa at Lit and Life--Life: It Goes On...is a meme where we get to talk about other stuff we're doing in our lives along with reading!
It's been a really rough last month. I had big plans for celebrations and new traditions but they mostly fell through. I did get the Winter Solstice celebrated and that was about it (of course, Xmas and New Year's Eve were a hit). Plus it was a very tough year. So I'm very excited to getting into a brand new year with new possibilities!
Podcasts. This week I started a new one called History of Philosophy. So interesting.
- Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.
- Hunted by Kevin Hearne
- Forever His by Shelley Thacker.
- The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
- Paleofantasy by Marlene Zuk
Also, the holiday decor must come down this week. We had to take the tree down last week since it was a real tree was drying out fast...but I held off on the rest of the decor. It's sad taking it all down. I love how cozy everything feels during the holidays. It helps take the stress off during the hustle and bustle of the season. But taking it down means I can put it up later ;) And the wheel of life keeps on turning :)
- Homeland--Just finished up with the first season!
- Scandal--well, that was finished up 2 weeks ago but I'm behind a season and I can't wait until the third season comes to Netflix. That is one addictive and crazy show!
- Dexter--Just started season four.
For movie night I'll be trying my hand at Blackberry Bramble gelatin shots! I got a calendar that has one or two new jello shot recipes each month and I've decided to try them all...the only drawback is my state of Utah has a limited supply of liquor so I may have to be very creative as I make them!
Antibiotics! Beds and Netflix. You can tell what I've been doing the last few weeks....
Looking Forward To:
This new year of 2014! Gabe turns the big 5 next month and wants a Minecraft party so Archie and I will have to be pretty creative to get this pulled off. Five means kindergarten in the Fall. I can't believe he's getting so big now!
Despite everyone getting sick the last 3 weeks, we still found ways to have fun on Christmas and New Year's Eve.
