Weekend reading: January 14, 2017

Trampoline jumping

From Instagram: Such a beautiful 70-degree {January?} day! 

These week felt like the perfect start to a new year—a new schedule that is working wonderfully, home cooked meals after a year of eating whatever was easiest, 3 books finished before the weekend.

Of course, I’m not naive enough to think that one good week means the rest of my life (or even month) will go perfectly, and the truth is we’ve been laying the foundation for each of these things for months. But man does it feel good to get to the end of a week and feel accomplished about it rather than frustrated and discouraged!

I removed Lucas’ steristrips and pulled his one external stitch on Wednesday and it’s so good to see his whole face again. Looking forward to watching it heal and fade!

What I’m readingHarry Potter & the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling, Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, Full: Food, Jesus, and the Battle for Satisfaction by Asheritah Ciuciu

What I cookedpaleo pumpkin muffinswhole chicken & chicken stock in my pressure, egg salad (and it’s true—hard-boiled eggs in the pressure cooker peel sooooo easily!), chicken salad, meatball subs (with spaghetti squash), pesto chicken with crispy potatoes, shrimp scampi zoodles
