Scattered. My to-do list keeps growing and growing and growing before my eyes.
Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.
Currently snacking on:
Clementines, aka "Cuties." I can go through three of them in one setting. I love how sweet they are and easy they are to peel.
Dumplings, dumplings, dumplings. Any kind. Pierogies, wontons, samosas, empanadas, pelmeni, you name it.
Current dish I want to perfect in the kitchen:
Mashed cauliflower. I've tried various combos of cooking stock, garlic, onion, cheese, milk, yogurt, etc., but haven't been able to get the recipe the way I want it. (Is there some secret ingredient I don't know about?) I am going to be experimenting again in the coming days.
So many things! Attending my next Blackhawks game in less than 10 days, going to see Cabaret, upcoming plans with friends I haven't seen in a long time, vacation at the end of the month.
Trying some new-to-me fitness classes that I've always shied away from in the past, e.g. HIIT core, Step and Sculpt, Fly Barre. I'd like to throw more variety into my tried-and-true rotation of running, yoga, Zumba, lifting, and the occasional stationary bike.
Currently nervous about:
My next long run with a side of hill-work on the treadmill to finish. After experiencing how challenging this workout felt last week, I am gun-shy about trying it again.
Going to Second City last weekend with Adam and watching Fool Me Twice, Deja Vu. It was HILARIOUS. Days later, Adam and I are still cracking one-liners from the show. I haven't seen live improv in quite some time and I had forgotten how much I love it!
I've mentioned before that I took three levels of improv classes a few years ago, which were so much fun! I was observing the artists' techniques and they were all amazing. True creative geniuses!
The days are getting longer! It is glorious to both wake up and leave the office when the sun is above the horizon. Let's all start replenishing the Vitamin D. =)
I am dying to know what happened off-camera to elicit Artemi Panarin's facial expressions here!
