Reading: "Furiously Happy" by Jenny Lawson was the perfect choice for my first book of 2016! I loooooved "Let's Pretend This Never Happened," and though Lawson's new book is a little different, it was still totally awesome. I mean, how can a book with a maniacally happy taxidermied raccoon on the cover possibly be bad?! I finished it up yesterday and read the first few pages of a new psychological thriller, "What She Knew" by Gilly Macmillan.
Knitting: I'm about a third of the way done with the mermaid tail blanket for my friend's toddler. I love that I can work on it while watching TV. You can see a picture of my progress here.
Watching: Jarrod and I have been bingeing on "Orphan Black," a show about a girl who discovers she's one of many clones after watching a woman who looks just like her jump in front of a train. It is addicting! We've watched the first two discs of season one and I can't wait to watch more!
Wearing: My winter coat, for only the second time this season. It finally got cold here in Ohio!
Eating: The Pioneer Woman's chicken pot pie. Yum.
Drinking: McKenzie's seasonal reserve hard cider. Oh my gosh, it's like Christmas in a bottle! I already love hard cider, and this one has hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. It might just be a new favorite!
Following: @JEFFMAURITZEN on Instagram. He's a National Geographic photographer and recently posted several gorgeous Antarctica pictures on his feed. Visiting Antarctica is high up on my bucket list and now I want to go even more! Penguins and glaciers, oh my!
Looking forward to: Watching the new Victorian-themed "Sherlock" special, "The Abominable Bride," which aired on New Year's Day. And watching the first episode of this (final -- sniff, sniff) season of "Downton Abbey," which came on last night. It's football bowl season so Jarrod has reign over the TV. But that just means I get to snuggle up with a blanket and a cup of cocoa to watch "Downton" later this week!
