Reading: Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson to fulfill the biography category of the Read Harder Challenge. I've heard that this books is very well-written and will make you see what a genius but total a-hole Steve Jobs was. It's a long one as it is 576 pages!
Loving: having a gas grill. We have already grilled multiple meals since we assembled the grill just over a week ago. I love how easy it is to grill proteins for my weekly salads and the minimal clean-up is a huge bonus!
Thinking: about where we should go for our next trip. I'm hoping we can get away for a long weekend in September, possibly to the Bend, Oregon area. We love hiking and being outdoors so it seems like the perfect area to visit.
Feeling: more settled at Phil's now that the upstairs bedrooms are set up and photos are hung on the walls!
Anticipating: the long holiday weekend ahead of us! I'm heading up to the lake July 6-10th when all my siblings will be there, so we are staying home for the 4th of July weekend. We are hosting a small group of close friends for a BBQ on Sunday which I'm really looking forward to!
Watching: my garden grow. I am just amazed at how much it changes from day to day! Look at how it changed over the course of a week!

Working: out in more interesting ways than I was able to in the early post-op weeks. There's more variety to what I can do, which really helps. It's been great to bike outdoors instead of using the stationary bike and I've also been enjoying using the elliptical machine. Pre-surgery, I kind of hated the elliptical machine as I preferred to just run outdoors, but now that it's my only running'ish workout options, I'm loving it!
Grateful: that all of my siblings will be together in July. We are a bit scattered so it is difficult to get everyone in the same place at the same time. I can't wait to see everyone!
Listening: to the latest Adele album. She kicks off her North American tour in St. Paul next Tuesday and I'm going to the concert with a friend. I can't wait!!
Wishing: for beautiful, warm weather for our BBQ on Sunday and more warm weather for the days when I will be at the lake! I hope mother nature comes through for me!
What are you reading, anticipating, and grateful for these days?
