finishing up one more week of work before leaving
rolling with getting back into exercising after 2 weeks of the death cold
appreciating quality time with my sister – we had a date night to see Alton Brown’s Edible Inevitable show, which was awesome (and also the fact that I can travel so much because she’s the best auntie to Carter Cash)
watching Walking Dead, House of Cards and Amy Tangerine. Also, hockey playoffs are so soon. (We are *not* a basketball household, so no March Madness for us).
reading Bel Canto. Not sure what to read while we travel – suggestions?
remembering the people we’ve lost and that life is short
introducing more friends to rock climbing
thinking about sharing difficult stories, the true kind that tell so much
adjusting to the time change, still
celebrating a friend’s recent career news
loving H going grocery shopping so I can work on blog posts
drinking homemade green juice, and to balance that out, black tea with tons of sugar and milk or lattes. lots of lattes.
dreaming of all the ridiculous Italian food we’re going to eat
wearing the gold ring I bought myself for my birthday
missing the cooler weather already
planning our itinerary for Rome, Florence and Cinque Terre
embracing traveling out of the country for the first time, and all that it entails
sending love to H’s sister, who’s in the hospital with septic arthritis of the hip
learning un piccolo pezzo di italiano, mostly “where is the bathroom?” and “i need a glass of white wine”
feeling too excited to sleep
obsessed with playing with paper – been art journaling some and it’s beyond relaxing
