Outside My Window: The snow has been falling all night and all day – resulting in our first actual snow day of the year. Last week we had a “the roads are, like, icy” day which isn’t really as fun.
I’m Hearing: My daughter watching The Jetsons Movie (streaming on Netflix) while the dog barks at all the people out snow blowing their driveways. My ten year old boy child is next door frolicking in the white fluffy with his BFF.
I’m Reading: Roseblood by A.G. Howard which came in my last Owl Crate. The timing for this one is kind of incredible because it’s kind of a modern day spin on The Phantom of the Opera, which the hubster and I are going to see next weekend. I decided the timing was too good to put off reading it and luckily it’s supremely compelling so far. YA / Fantasy readers should dig right into this one nicely.
I’m Watching: The Mary Tyler Moore Show for the first time in my life, speaking of timely. I can’t believe it took me this long to watch it consider I was already a Dick Van Dyke Show fan. And I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around her passing. If you haven’t watched it yet, it’s incredibly funny and just good tv. Also you can totally watch all the episodes on Hulu. Streaming television for the win! I’m also finally catching up on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and I have so many feels about this season.
I’m Thinking About: After school programs and summer camps and future vacations when the weather starts playing nice again. BB just finished up her ballet semester and we’re planning to put her in gymnastics in the spring. Despite being totally full plate life, I’m also looking into robotics clubs for MM, probably just a summer camp for now because life.
This summer I’m hoping to jam every last outing I can into our annual summer trip and super excited to visit new nephews and catch up with all the peeps that have the nerve to live so far away from me. I’m also debating whether to book a campground yet for our annual summer camping trip – something about snow days makes the wander lust me in kick into overdrive.
I’m Cooking: taco salad tonight thanks to my amazing hubby who is stopping at the grocery store. Tomorrow I’ll be trying one of the meals from the Hello Fresh meal delivery service that I started trying. First up will be a tortellini with kale and parmesan dish, then this weekend we’re trying Shawarma Meatballs with Bulgur and Sumac Veggies. I don’t know what that means yet but I’m excited to find out.
I’m Looking Forward To: Our last Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby this weekend. It’s the end of an era and that’s really hard to believe. Next month he’ll be crossing over the Boy Scouts. I’m also looking forward to the previously mentioned date night coming up.
One response to “Today.”
You always have great suggestions for YA! My book club is currently on a YA kick so I’m always looking for YA that leads to good discussion. Thanks for sharing!
