Here's a look at what has been happening in my life over the past week in all the areas that mean so much to me: Books, Cooking, Home and Family
Happily, I'm able to say that I have carved out some time for reading this week. I've been bouncing back and forth between two very different books, both of which have me captivated.
Exit the Actress by Priya Parmar is a novel that I received for the Manic Mommies Book Club. Don't you just LOVE the cover?
I missed the call on Wednesday night (boo). I hadn't yet finished the book, so it's probably best that I didn't hear any spoilers. I'll be wrapping up the last 80 pages today - can't wait!
I've also be reading Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project. Although I don't review non-fiction very frequently on PeetSwea, it's a genre that I have been sprinkling in more and more frequently over the past year. I watched a segment on the CBS Sunday Morning show about happiness and was drawn to this book. I've only just started, so I have a lot more to read and learn. I'm really intrigued by Rubin's approach to finding ways to bring additional happiness into your life.
Nothing fancy, nothing too exciting, just home-cooked meals every night but Wednesday. I changed up the weekly schedule a bit, and was thankful for the very easy pot of Chili on Thursday after a rough day at the dentist and at work.
I will be looking to spruce up our extra room over the next few weeks in preparation for my sister and her family's arrival on June 10th. We haven't had too many visitors at our new home in Virginia, so I'm looking forward to having all the rooms overflowing with people and I'm very thankful that we have lots of space in this house to spread out!
That's a glimpse of what happened in my life over the past week - what do you have planned for your week?
