looking forward to seeing and spending time with my whole family and eating all the food in a couple of weeks — hooray!
reading No one cares about crazy people: the chaos and heartbreak of mental health in America by Ron Powers. Oh boy, I am in for a rough ride, I suppose (I am only two chapters in).
watching SNL. I hadn’t watched SNL in a long time, but started to watch it again shortly after the election. Melissa McCarthy and Alec Baldwin are so funny. I also really love Kate McKinnon. She’s hilarious (and she reminds me a little bit of Anke Engelke (who my German friends will know!) with her versatility).
working on my second half marathon training. I am in week 4 now and it’s going well so far. I’ll be talking about the plan and how it’s going a little more in a separate post.
enjoying the warm spring weather (when it’s not raining- ha!). We’ve had a mixed bag of spring weather so far, but it’s been nice.
listening to this contemporary piano piece by Mark Pinkus (actually his whole album is wonderful!). I love it. I’d love to learn how to play this (I miss my piano!). If you clicked on the link, what did you think? Do you ever listen to piano music?
contemplating if it is going to be too late to plant some vegetables and fruits after I get back from Germany at the end of May?
eating all the pasta.
drinking Arnold Palmers (iced tea with lemonade). It’s delicious and refreshing.
loving my new hair cut + color. I was so overdue, so it was marvelous to go in last Saturday and have my head pampered for two hours!
feeling guilty that I didn’t attend the ‘march for science’ on Saturday. It wasn’t on my radar when I made the hair appointment and since I had been putting that off for so long already, I didn’t want to cancel or postpone it, because of my upcoming trip home. I am glad that so many people turned out for the march in our city though! That was nice to see.
not so happy that we owed taxes this year for the first time ever. I always try to be on top of our regular deductions, but sometimes it’s hard to figure out. Meh.
What’s going on with you currently?
