It’s been a long time since I’ve done a fun Gerunds & Lately List– so here it is!
Cooking: Soups. They are such a great way to get extra veggies in us all– and since we find ourselves in a real Disney Dessert Detox (is that a thing? It feels like a thing. I wouldn’t have it any other way, but wow– bring on the vegetables!) I scoped this week on a favorite slow-cooker chicken stock and the end result was delicious. Yesterday I tried this Cold-Fighting Couscous Chicken Soup from Pinterest and even with new flavors like lemongrass and ginger, the girls loved it, (so did we!) Definitely a fun spin on chicken soup.
Drinking: Black Iced Coffee! Completely refreshing– who knew?
Reading: I just finished Longing for Paris & Treasure Island. This weekend I will finish Bringing Lucy Home and *hopefully* Bird by Bird. Next up: Simply Tuesday and something Fiction. Maybe more Anne of Green Gables? I really want to read a story that I can get wrapped up in and one that ends well and I know Anne with an ‘e’ will never let me down.
Writing Editing: my very own book proposal! I never knew a book proposal could take this long, but it is finally finished and ready to be submitted, so YAY!
Feeling: Slightly Nauseated about aforementioned submission.
Loving: that it is finally FALL and soon it might feel like it too.
Remembering: All the fun we had last week as a family on vacation. I only took a few photos and they were mostly on my phone but my mind is brimming with all the moments. Fun Disney post coming soon!
Listening: to the Carla Bruni station on Pandora and This, This, and This. (That last one is like Springsteen and Swift got married and had a mellow, but still fun baby. How weirdly fun? But don’t worry, it will never be our new Dance party song.)
Wondering: what caused Mario Lopez (AC Slater) to begin doing commercials for toe-nail medicine. And what does Jessie Spano have to say about his lapse in judgement? I bet she isn’t “so excited.” Not even a little bit.
Considering: that the Allume Conference is in less than THREE weeks. You can still get a ticket if you’re interested– AND, they have a pretty sweet deal going on right now if you grab a friend and go together.
Have a great weekend!!
