Lovely Tidbits #2

You’d think I could manage to find a few minutes a week to join in this easy and fun linkup hosted by my friend Cristina or Handmaid Embroidery.  <Sigh> How wrong you would be!  I am finding it more and more difficult to carve out any time to do what I want most–WRITE.  But I’m doing it today, even though I really should be working instead!

So here we go with a peek into my week!

Cooking: I continue to be mostly a short-order cook, but this week’s big production was a beef stew.  I make a delicious beef stew, if I do say so myself.  The liquid in this one was almost entirely alcoholic to start (beer, white wine, and red wine).  And I don’t just throw in some potatoes and carrots and call it a day.  My stew had potatoes of all colors, as well as sweet potatoes, parsnips, turnips, rutabagas, and butternut squash.  Too bad I forgot that Jake and Teddy don’t live here anymore, because we will never eat it all.

Reading:  I have book club on Monday, and this time I actually read the book! It’s called Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, and it was both fascinating and horrifying.  I’m also still reading Con Job by my friend Crystal, and I think there’s a Star Wars book Emily wants me to read that I promised to start next!

Wanting:  Spring!  And all the plants! I have to wait a little while, though.  The only thing that is certain about East Tennessee weather is that it will change.  Just because it was 80 yesterday doesn’t mean we won’t see another frost.  In fact, I’m certain we will.

Loving:  Spring Break, including being able to sleep a little later, write a little more, do some fun things with the kids, and not work so frantically.  Too bad it is half over.

Thinking:  Trying to organize an itinerary for our little weekend trip to Chattanooga.  More on that next week, I hope!

Working on:  Getting my work stuff organized so I can figure out what to start on today and what I need to get done before we head out of town.

And that’s it for this week.  Be sure to check out the rest of linkup by clicking here!

  1. I wish I would have received some sort of notification that you’d linked up!!! I’m sorry to be so late in commenting. I need your recipe for Beef Stew. I thought mine was good, but your open bar Beef Stew sounds amazing! Thank you for linking up, Leslie <3

    1. I just wish I was able to link up more often–it gets away from me more often than not, and I seem to have so little time to write lately. 🙁 I love the name Open Bar Beef Stew! I will write up the recipe and call it that!!
