It's Memorial Day Weekend here in the US, the unofficial beginning of summer. There's nothing like a three day weekend to jumpstart the season.
Reading: I finished TWO books this week. The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer, a read/listen combination which I loved, and The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, my classics spin book which was just okay.
Yesterday I started We Were Liars by E. Lockhart and will finish later today... perfect holiday weekend reading.
Up next is Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell, Jr. for book club.
Listening: Nothing... but wondering if I should make Empty Mansions a read/listen combo or just start something new on audio today.
Watching: I walked outside this week, but did sneak in an episode of Orange is the New Black on a rainy day.
In the kitchen: A couple of new seafood recipes (Weekend Cooking post to follow), a roasted cauliflower salad, and chicken barbecue.
Later today I'll be planting a small herb garden in an old wooden wine crate.
In other news: I bought a fitbit one last week and love it...such a great motivational tool. I've surprised myself by averaging 13,000 steps, but have learned that without my daily walk or treadmill time it's awfully hard to meet that 10,000 step goal.
