Monday Musings

alohi in the grass


My week: My week was basically spent working, napping, cleaning up accidents and entertaining a puppy!

Reading: I finished Hope Jahren's memoir, "Lab Girl," and then read the new YA release, "Gilded Cage" by Vic James. It was ok, not as heavy on the fantasy as I expected, but I was intrigued enough that I'll probably continue the series when the next book comes out. Now I'm reading Stephenie Meyer's new book, "The Chemist." I liked the first part but the middle is getting a little hokey and drag-y.

Knitting: Nothing at all! One of these days (like when the puppy turns 1 in 10 months) I'll get back to the Hufflepuff scarf.

Watching: We started watching "House of Cards" this week. I wasn't immediately hooked, but I'm intrigued enough to keep watching.

Listening to: "Dirt On My Boots" by Jon Pardi.

Eating: Chocolate chip banana bread. And out, several times more than normal, thanks to our new addition! Also, we tried out this recipe (grilled Hawaiian teriyaki chicken bowls) and thought it was a winner. I really liked the extra flavors from the coconut rice and toasted coconut.

Looking forward to: Three more days off from work! With my part-time work schedule, three-day weekends become five-day weekends and it is completely fantastic.

*I'm linking up with Kathryn of Book Date for It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


  1. She is just too cute for words. Have you named her yet? I remember how consuming a puppy can be, but it's all worth it for the smell of puppy breath! Looks like everyone else better stay off the road - she's taking over.

  2. Cute puppy!

    Lab Girl sounds interesting...and I have officially binge-watched 4 seasons of House of Cards...and want more!

    Hope you come to love it.
