Inspired by Clair’s lovely post (do you read her blog? You should) here’s a quick list of things that have been going on in my life lately:
Exercising: A lot. I’ve really gotten back into the swing of things and I must say, it feels great. Recently it’s been a combo of kickboxing (so much sweat!) and long beach walks.
Enjoying: Watching my lemon tree grow. If all goes well, I should have actual lemons soon. This is very exciting to me, not in the least because I’m normally a black thumb.
Reading: Sweet Tooth, by Ian McEwan. Not loving, exactly, but enjoying.
Craving: A trip—somewhere, anywhere! Have been feeling a little stir-crazy recently. Thankfully, I’ve got San Diego in August to look forward to, and I’m hoping there’s opportunity for a mini-vacay in July somewhere, too.
Watching: Mad Men, mostly. And I think we’re going to start Arrested Development, which I’ve never seen, this weekend, since ACS randomly has all the seasons on DVD but has never watched them, either. I know next to nothing about the show, but it’s good, right?
Eating: This herb-roasted salmon from Ina Garten is delicious and easy (so delicious I accidentally ate half a pound of it the other day, in fact, instead of the quarter-pound I thought I was scarfing down. Oops). Definitely make it. I paired it with a super-simple arugula salad and it was the perfect post-work meal.
Feeling: Happy that summer is (basically) here. More beach walks, barbecues, swimming, sundresses, dips in the ocean and friend time, please.
What’s been going on with you lately? How were your long weekends?
