A sunday version, this week. 🙂
I am wearing::
A grey BR pleated skirt; a Boden sweater w/ a Peter Pan color in navy and plum (plum at the collar, waist and wrists); tiny sparkly earrings from Touchstone Crystal. I taught CCD today and the girls like it when I wear jewelry. 🙂
Outside my window::
Sunny and blue skies, low sixties. It’s a lovely first day of Fall here.
In the CD player::
Joyce DiDonato, ReJoyce! Let me tell you: her “You’ll Never Walk Along” is stunning. Go give it a listen.
The Last Olympian; Back to Virtue; Relish (which is so much more than a cookbook, it’s got some great tips in it.)
Christmas Scarf No. 5 in a beautiful cobalt blue yarn. I just love it.
I’m taking my first pure barre class tomorrow. Gulp. We’ll see how this goes! One of the girls in the show works here and she told me all about it. I know I do better in a class when I can’t just quit early, and when I have to be accountable for it. So I’m a bit nervous but also excited to try this!
From the kitchen:
Tonight is Ina Garten’s weeknight bolognese, which I’ve been wanting to try for awhile. Also this week are some new chicken and pasta recipes that I’ll share as I try them out. Also planning a menu for a Saturday night dinner party! (Small–only two other guests–but still fun!)
Around the house::
Clearing out the closet and sifting through clothes I could donate; vacuuming; clearing off the kitchen table. I’ve got friends coming over for dinner on Saturday so we have to have a place to eat!
my friends who are pregnant
Wendy, a member of my third order chapter, who is having a biospy in the near future
The kids in my CCD class
Plans for the week::
Lunch w/ my dad tomorrow
My parish’s 160th anniversary is on Wednesday, so I’m planning on attending the special Mass that evening.
Another Pure Barre class on Thursday
Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Show rehearsal!
Saturday: Dinner party
Sunday: CCD class. ALSO the Master of the Dominican Order is visiting our parish and concelebrating the 9 AM Mass, so I will make a special effort to get up for that!
