Here's what's been going on around my house and my head right now:
reading: I just bought Ron Chernow’s Hamilton book so that will be next. I kinda have a feeling it will be a book that sits in one place (by my bed or my reading chair) for me to pick up now and then, and not read straight through. It is giant. It is not the kind of book you want to carry around and read when you get a minute. I might change my mind once I get into it, but right now I've already started The Atlantis Gene by AG Riddle. I’ve also downloaded a bunch of book samples from Amazon. I’m auditioning cruise reading material.
listening to: why am I even listing this question? Hamilton, of course and still. I also have a Spotify playlist called “March” to entertain me when I need a break. Right now I’d say my favorite is 7 Years Old by Lukas Graham. I’m also enjoying a few Chris Stapleton songs.
watching: I wish I were watching Better Call Saul Season 2, but I don’t have cable and I can’t find it streaming anywhere. I need to find something new because most of my tv time these days is watching General Hospital, and we all know that is not a good show. I've switched my favorite vintage show from Perry Mason (don't worry, I still love Perry, Paul and Della, but I've seen all those stories more than once) to Bewitched. Because of Tabitha.
thinking about: my wardrobe. It’s been ages since anything “on trend” was something I would want to wear. I have never strived to be “on trend” anyway, but turns out if something isn’t currently in style it’s really hard to find it at a store. For the last who knows how many years, my closet has been mostly full of tshirts (really cool tshirts though). But now! Oh so many pretty things I love. Combine that with the way this cruise has me planning cute outfits - well I’ve been thinking about my wardrobe and shoes and accessories in a way I haven’t in quite some time. So that’s fun.
eating: My new favorite snack is a slice of mozzerella and half a cherry tomato on top of a Basil & Balsamic Vinegar Triscuit. I posted this on Instagram (and Triscuit liked it). Those are Kalamata olives in the background. They go great with almost everything.
planning: My next trip! Which is the cruise. Plus two nights at Disney which actually haven’t planed for one tiny bit. It’s my first cruise and it’s been really fun reading and learning about cruises. It's getting super close!
in love with: the new baby niece. Man she is incredible. She’s so fun! I certainly don’t want to rush through this oh so sweet baby time, but I am so excited to watch her grown into a kid and then a person and learn what she’s like. Every new person adds something special to a family and I can’t wait to see what hers is.
enjoying: making painted backgrounds in my journal again. why did i ever stop that?
appreciating: the weather! There are still days that are far too cold. in fact a few mornings ago i woke up to all this snow! But so many days are warm enough to sit outside and enjoy the sun. I love it when old man winter gets banished!!
What's March been like for you?
