Making: smoothies with frozen cauliflower. Weird, right? It’s basically tasteless and adds a vegetable to my morning.
Watching: “Homecoming” on Amazon. Julia Roberts is unlike we’ve seen her before in this TV series.
Searching: for flights. Arizona is on our winter travel list, and we’re still discussing a spring break destination.
Reading: Becoming by Michelle Obama. I finished this book last night, and it honestly made me sad to be reminded of the giant step backward we’ve taken as a country since this family left the White House.
Grading: sports articles. This is where the transition in my journalism class takes place. I’ve taught the legal standards of journalism and provided notes on how to format articles. It is now up to the students to find a great story and tell it in a unique way. I’m enjoying this part of the semester where I can sit back and coach them on the writing while they do the work.
Listening: to Christmas playlists on Amazon. The Polar Express playlist is great when Elijah and I are busy in the kitchen, and I’m always a fan of the “Glee Christmas” playlist. But no matter who is singing, I always get excited for my favorite Christmas song, “Mary, Did You Know?”
Planning: A birthday celebration for John. December birthdays tend to blend in with the holidays. I try my hardest not to let this happen. Even though John doesn’t want cake or cupcakes, Elijah and I might pretend we didn’t hear that request.
Loving: my new iPhone X. The picture quality on this thing is out of this world. As much as I take photos, this upgrade was long overdue. Elijah, thanks for being my favorite subject.
