Reading:  I just finished Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs while we were on vacation.  Christopher read The Dumbest Generation, and we both enjoyed our books.  I haven't started anything new yet.

Loving:  Vegetables.  We didn't eat a lot of salads in Mexico, as we tend to avoid the salad bar.  We were craving veggies when we got home, and our grocery trip consisted mostly of plants:

We've had fish and salad:

Soup loaded with greens:

And, a new favourite, a warm chicken salad (we roasted the veggies first):

The roasted veggies were placed over raw baby kale, and all of that was topped with chicken, and a homemade Asian-inspired dressing.

Thinking:  About recipe creation.  We have a few ideas to try soon.

Frustrated:  By my suitcase that needs unpacking; I hate to unpack!

Feeling:  Excited for our trip to New York coming up.  I miss that city so much, and have felt a longing for it for the past three years.  It will be an excellent place for Honeymoon Part 2 - and I cannot wait to introduce Christopher to my favourite city. 

Anticipating:  A wonderful evening with my in-laws!  They are having us over for dinner tonight.

Watching:  We were watching Fresh Prince today for a bit; I forgot how funny that show is.

Sad:  That I didn't sleep well.  On Saturday mornings I seem to wake up around 4:00 a.m., and then am unable to fall back asleep.

Working:  For less than 30 days before we're on vacation again!

Grateful:  For all the kind words regarding our secret wedding.  People have been so understanding, positive, and happy for us, and that makes us even happier.

Listening:  To Christopher playing bass (a Beck song).  He has taken up bass, and he's a natural.  It was funny, when he told me he was going to start learning bass, I didn't expect to sit down with him and hear him play a bunch of songs on his first day playing. 

Wishing:  To be back in the hot sun of Mexico - it was glorious, and it's freezing here.  We're already looking at when we can go back.

What are you loving?  Wishing?  Anticipating?

That warm roasted vegetable salad sounds amazing!

I'm currently loving having smashed avocado on toast for a snack, wishing the weather was not so dang cold, and anticipating a quiet night in with Phil.
