I’m coming down off of a pseudo-relaxing weekend. I didn’t have to work. We didn’t have anywhere we had to go. No big things absolutely had to get done. Just some regular, old chill-time, play-time, me-time, and it was GREAT. I have a miles-long to do list, but honestly, ignoring it was totally worth it.
I’m finally feeling somewhat healthy and back to myself again (after strep throat and the worst-cold-ever), and am ready to hit the gym this week! My goal is to go to CrossFit three times this week, and maybe even try to squeeze in some at home yoga on at least one in between day. This is me anouncing my intentions, and attempting to be accountable. We’llllll seeeee.
In reading land, I’ve recently starting a bunch of new things. Rabbit Cake is a March release I’ve been highly anticipating, and a few chapters in, so far so good. I needed a “phone read” for those random downtime moments, and decided to pick up Rebecca Solnit’s newest The Mother Of All Questions, which comes out later this month. She’s smart, I like the way she presents ideas, and I need another highlighter for all the note taking. K, thanks.
Lastly, I’ve picked out my next audiobook adventure, but haven’t quite started it yet (dang those interesting and important Crooked Media pods!). I’m feeling a little nonfiction-y, and am going to roll with it and listen to Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. I was already intrigued by this one, but have since realized it discusses families and neighborhoods in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (which is where I live), so now am even more interested in digging into this one. I think it will nicely complement a new local NPR series called Project Milwaukee: Segregation Matters, which discusses the origins of this issue and why it continues to endure.
That’s enough chatting from me today, but what about you? What’s new? What are you reading?
