I saw this when I was glancing at the local news on my phone Saturday night and it cracked me up. It's sad but true that mid-60s is bundle-up weather here in Hawaii!
Before you get too jealous that I live in "paradise," though, just look at the price of that tiny container of dried dill! Dill was a must-have ingredient in our Sunday night dinner and both military commissaries were totally out. So we decided to brave Safeway -- and man, did my eyes bug out when I saw that price tag! We ended up going with a pack of fresh dill for $4.
Reading: It's the week of advance-read books for me! I finished "The River at Night" by Erica Ferencik (out Tuesday), a thriller about a rafting trip in the Maine wilderness gone horiffically wrong, and then read "The Second Mrs. Hockaday" by Susan Rivers (also out Tuesday), an epistolary novel set during and after the Civil War. Now I'm reading a novel about nurses in WWII, out January 17, "The Fire by Night" by Teresa Messineo.
Knitting: Jarrod and I are about to become an uncle and aunt for the first time -- not under the most optimal circumstances (it was unplanned to say the least), but that doesn't mean I haven't had a blast shopping for baby stuff! This week I worked on a little baby hat for our new niece. I got the yarn on Kauai at a little shop called Hanalei Strings and it reminds me of a Hawaiian sunset.
I also FINALLY started watching "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" and I've gotten through the first three episodes. I wasn't too impressed with Winter and Spring, but Summer had a lot more action and now I'm dying to know how everything turns out in the final episode. (Though, honestly, I could have done without "Stars Hollow: The Musical"!)
Listening to: I can't stop listening to this song since I heard it on "Stranger Things" a few weeks ago. The show definitely gave me a shot of '80s nostalgia and I've been listening to '80s mixes on Spotify!
And for something more modern, the new Fitz and the Tantrums! We got to see this band a Lollapalooza in 2014 and they were super-fun live!
Drinking: Hot tea by the gallon to soothe my throat.

Looking forward to: A three-day weekend! Plus President's Day weekend next month; we decided to take a little trip to the Big Island. I've been dying to go see where the lava is flowing into the ocean. We took an amazing lava hike last time we lived here, but the lava wasn't going into the ocean then. Now you can take a boat tour to see it and it looks spectacular!
I'm linking up with Kathryn of Book Date for It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
