Oh March, you are a nasty beast. It’s when I want Spring so bad but mother nature is not done with throwing snow, ice and cold temperatures our way. March is not over yet, but I’m over with it. Bring on the April showers and let’s take time to take stock:
My bestie Sarah who teaches high school kids. I know I complain A LOT about the teacher’s union, excessive (and mostly unnecessary) school closures, PD days, the school year calendar … on and on and on … BUT when Sarah tells me about her day, it blows my mind! She’s a rockstar – trust me, or just walk down the streets of Halifax with her and see if for yourself = at least 5 kids will give her a shout-out. Totally jealous.
I finally (it took me 6 months) finished A Little Life. It was beautiful but devastating and I had to take many breaks. I am now reading The Nest, which seems to be less heartbreaking.
S•Town (Podcast) – who isn’t this week? Mike and I started listening to Trevor Noah’s Born A Crime on the drive to Sunday River. It’s our first attempt at a co-listen audiobook and we’re loving it. It’s also my bookclub read and I’m glad I went with the audio version because his narration is awesome.
I want to be watching Big Little Lies but I’m not (yet!). I flew through Riverdale (so good!) and am now waiting patiently for the next episode. Also, can someone please point me in the direction of the Love Actually reunion?
David’s birthday in April. The big 8.
Pies – this summer. I want to make a lot of pies. Peach, cherry, rhubarb, key lime…
Had a bout of gastro last weekend so I’m not into food or drinks right now – it’s mostly been toast and honey + tea.
New earphones – I lost sound in my right earphone which makes me run on a tilt.
Physio. Must fix this groin problem asap! Yesterday she put me on the treadmill and filmed me running, from behind, in slow motion. This was something I did not enjoy watching. Call me crazy, but I don’t mind dry needling.
Lakes. I plan to spend more time around and in lakes this summer.
A handheld vacuum. I think it will be a game changer… but I am too lazy to research if the Dyson is worth the price. Please offer reviews/advice.
How about you? Do you stop and take stock of life lately?
