Reading: The Faith Club which is the first book I'm reading for my Activism Through Reading project. It's been a fascinating and engaging book so far. I am Catholic so I know all about the origins, tenets and beliefs of Christianity, but knew next to nothing about the Muslim and Jewish faiths. It's been interesting to see how much these 3 faiths have in common.
Loving: having Oscar back. She was at Phil's mom's for 2 weeks as she went there when we went to California and stayed for an extra week. His mom adores having her but we miss her so much when she is away. She was super cuddly when she got back and spent a lot of time on my lap when I was home last Monday. And her curiosity cracks us up!
|In the top 2 pictures, she is trying to figure out what exactly is in that cloth bin our bedroom (nothing interesting - it's all running/hiking stuff)|
Thinking: about wedding stuff quite a bit of the time... I'm enjoying the process so far - much more than I thought I would! I have so many different spreadsheets to track different things like guest lists and to dos and such. Thank God for Google Docs. I love having access to everything whether I'm at home or at work.
Anticipating: the upcoming crafting weekend with my mom and Chicago SIL. We have a long list of things to accomplish but many hands makes light work! It'll be great to get a chance to spend some quality time together.
Watching: Z: The Beginning of Everything on Amazon Prime. It's a show about Zelda, the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald. The first season is set in America. I'm looking forward to future seasons as they spent quite a bit of time in Paris!
Working: on making book-page envelop liners for our invitations!! We'll mail them in about a month! Once the liners are done I'm going to start to address 10 envelopes a day. I HATE addressing envelopes but can't justify hiring a calligrapher.
Grateful: that Phil and I were able to get away this month. It was so good for us to spend 4 fun days together.
Listening: to "Million Reasons" by Lady Gaga. I think that song is so beautiful! She did an amazing job performing during the Superbowl Halftime.
Wishing: the warm weather we had would stick around. Warmer, sunnier weather has such a positive impact on my general mood and level of energy! But at least we are through the worst stretch of winter (hopefully).
