February is wrapping up and a new season is soon to be underway. It's still very much winter here. The season I'm talking about has to do with Theatre Life. We're down to a week of performances for our current show which will leave us with rehearsals for one production. The results of the line-up of upcoming auditions will clue us into what's next.
I'm currently planning a trip to
In the meantime, here are a few pictures from my Mom's 50th and some things I've been into lately.
What I'm Watching
That Girl on Amazon Prime. Not sure how I've never heard of this...it's amazing.
Roman Holiday, The Finest Hours, The Lake House, Brigadoon.
One show I want to check out is called Letters from Ladies. My Mom found this one and it's basically a tv show version of a podcast.
In the Kitchen
Super Bowl food: veggie dip with bread, wheat thins, and sesame crackers; pigs in a blanket; bbq little smokies.
A dinner of southern sides (macaroni and cheese, bbq beans, cornbread, and carrot slices for good measure) after I had a mishap with our Instant Pot that ended with the pork roast not being done in time. Beef stroganoff. French toast. My grandma's spaghetti. Buttermilk biscuits. A blueberry coffee cake that was mistaken for store-bought. Also, this cake, these sandwiches, these meatballs, and this soup.
I'm back to craving chocolate chip cookies alllll the time. I used to make them at least once a month. Maybe I should do that again.
For my Mom's birthday, we went the nostalgic route and had chili cheeseburgers and onion rings. It was my very first time eating a chili cheeseburger and I really have been missing out!
Around the Internet
Woolf's essay "Street Haunting" inspired me to write about the February morning I spent with it. I also read Dickens's essay "Night Walks" and Franklin's article on getting a good night's sleep.
This article really resonated with me. I'm not a wife. I'm not a mother. But, I keep house for five and sometimes THAT becomes my identity and how I determine my worth.
Found Podcast - the jury is still out on this one. It's an interesting concept.
The Splendid Table Podcast - America's Test Kitchen Radio Podcast was one of my top five. ATK has gone through some changes and the podcast ended. I've been looking for a replacement and I may have found it!
My newest goal is to express my excitement over the books I'm reading the way she does.
I've been reading the book of John lately. There is always more to learn and God is faithful to teach us!
Linking up with Leigh!
