The return to reality has been rough. It's not easy to go from sandcastles
to shoveling snow in a single day.
The snow continues to fall this morning and they say another polar vortex is on the way. Sigh.
Yesterday was filled with laundry, organizing, and getting reacquainted with Zelda. Some serious grocery shopping will happen later this morning but, due to the holiday, mail must wait until tomorrow. It's going to be quite a job dealing with three weeks of the stuff.
What did I read in Florida?
Julia Child Rules by Karen Karbo
The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes
Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann
I enjoyed them all, especially The Girl You Left Behind, and plan to work on reviews this week.
On audio: Nothing - can you believe it? I did plenty of walking on the beach, but always had my husband or one of the twins to keep me company. This is the longest I've ever gone without listening to an audiobook. I practically went through withdrawal!
I was on the 14th (of 18) CD of The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert before we left (last year!) and look forward to returning to the story.
Current reading: The Gravity of Birds by Tracy Guzeman - only 25% in, but really like it so far. Like The Girl You Left Behind, a painting is at the center of the story. I seem to be on an art kick this year.
Watching: Downton Abbey and sports… mostly football and college basketball
In the kitchen: We went out to dinner a lot on vacation, but now it's back the regular routine. Twin A returns to college at the end of the week, so there will be plenty of cooking and baking before then to ensure a well-stocked freezer for the spring semester!
Blogging: I hope it's not hard to get back into the groove after so much time away. Fingers crossed for at least a couple of posts this week.
I've missed you all… can't wait to see what you've been up to!
