Well wishes on this Martin Luther King day here in the U.S.
I watched Marriage Story this weekend. What a lovely, sad and poignant movie.
Terry was out of town, so I knitted, had a lovely dinner with my mom, watched movies and worked on the blog all weekend! I love this wee little job of mine, but man, do I work hard at it! When I wasn’t doing all that other stuff, I was chipping away at that blasted jigsaw puzzle that has been sitting on my kitchen table since NYE! In fact, my reward for getting stuff done Friday was an hour working on the puzzle. I am this close to finishing it!
Remember when I listed my goals for 2020 last week? One of my goals was to move forward on really making this house our home and to that end, I did a thing this week. After mulling and pondering what to do with the built-in desk in the kitchen that we just don’t use for the past 7 months (I tend to be stymied by analysis paralysis), in the span of 3 days I found an antique Butler’s cabinet, bought it and tore out the desk in the kitchen! We are at a bit of standstill now as I’m waiting for the electrician and the delivery of the cabinet, but still! I’m thrilled to be moving forward.
As it relates to goals, I am really trying to be disciplined about keeping those goals documented on my calendar and making daily or weekly steps towards accomplishing them.

We enjoyed this Dried Fig and Butternut Squash salad for dinner, and lunch, last week. Adding some quinoa to it made it a filling meal.
