Weekend reading: January 10, 2015

From Instagram: Not quite sure about this…

It has been so cold here this week. Not as cold as it’s been other places, but cold enough to make me wish for spring! I kept walking on the first day it snowed because it was so pretty out, but as the wind swept in and we had wind chills below 0, I kind of gave up. I’ve missed it, though, so I’ll definitely be making time for long walks this weekend.

Next week I am taking a 3-day writing/planning retreat and I could not be more excited. Our house is…busy, to say the least, and while most days I wouldn’t have it any other way, I’ve been wishing for a chance to get away and just think and rest and brainstorm for a long time. In fact, I realized yesterday that this will be the first time I’ll be truly alone in more than a year and the first time I will be truly alone for 3 days in my entire life. Sean will hold down the fort at home, and I’m going to try not to die from being separated from Jack for that long. Mostly I’m really excited, though, and excited to get 3 full nights sleep in a row too!

What I’m reading: For Such a Time by Kate Breslin and I ended up starting Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson rather than Robin Hood last week

What I cooked: beef & butternut squash stew, shrimp scampi zoodles, oven baked chicken fajitas
