My Everyday Life [Week 3]

Started my Monday morning by getting to work at 6:30 to avoid an ice storm and work some overtime. My job requires a quiet office to accomplish most of my tasks well. Luckily, I am a total morning person, while my other colleagues are not. 

I took a little walk through the new gallery show we have on display. I love the artist's work, especially because I am a bird lover.

This one also has such a beautiful frame!

I finished reading my third book of the year, Paulo Coelho's The Spy. It was sort of meh. Mata Hari's life was fascinating and sad though. 
And onto a new book (well actually two because another one came in via the digital library). I really like this one so far.
Set some new goals using the Fitbit prompt to change some things up for the new year.
Unfortunately, some of those goals may have been ignored a bit because I ate so much this week, including the delicious homemade cake a colleague brought in. 
These Tofurky slices are pretty good, although Rip Esselstyn specifically says not to consume these on his seven day diet. We actually bought them for Craig, so it's ok that I've had a couple of slices. 
The cats (well maybe except Pema) continue to adhere to their nightly routines. For Shiva, that means following me up to the bedroom and lying down outside the door.
Tanzi runs up the bathroom and waits for Craig to pet him using a tweezers. That old kitty loves hard scratches! Shiva has now joined the party. 
Loving this new feature on 23andme. I still am struggling to find which of my ancestors would have been from Spain or Portugal. Maybe the information from this report will help me. 
We showered my sister-in-law (also named Lisa) with love on Saturday! She's due in early April, which will be here before she knows it.
I love looking at old photos of my husband when we're at their house. He looks so adorable here.
My sister was in town over the weekend and a bunch of my family met up to catch up with her! Here's my great niece who cries every time she sees my brother, her grandpa! He is quite the bugger and always has been, so I think she has a sixth sense.
And here's my nephew Nathan showing off his snacks. 
 Off to watch Victoria! I really enjoyed last week's episode. Are you watching it?

  1. The 23 and me sounds interesting--maybe I'd get some insights on why there were so many black haired, brown eyed people with our supposed all northern European ancestry. Still not sure I am comfortable someone have my DNA--and I'm cheap too. So I guess it's not happening anytime soon!
