Weekend Reflections 3/18

Looking outside…it’s overcast with a chance of rain. Currently 54 though, which is nice. Listening…to the dishwasher running, and the washer is on a spin cycle. The Boy is watching something on his phone. The Artist is asleep on the couch.Loving…that we are all home together this weekend.Thinking…that all the extras on the Arrival DVD are just as good as the movie. We loved Arrival. So much, that we rented it from Redbox last week and as soon as it was over, we went out and got our own copy. Watched the makings of last night and it was fascinating. If you haven’t seen it. Watch it. Now.In my kitchen…Not sure what’s on the menu for tonight. Crio Bru at the moment. It has replaced my hot chocolate addiction. Took some time to get used to it, but I love it and it’s so much lower calorie and low carb. I’m not doing full Keto like the Doctor is, but I’m counting calories and eating fewer carbs. So the Crio is awesome for that. I sweeten mine with some Stevia and Sugar-Free Caramel Syrup and then add a splash of half and half. Yum!Wearing…denim skirt, green and tan top, no shoes.Hoping…that my lilac tree will bloom. We had to cut it back hard last year because I don’t think it had ever been pruned and I’m afraid we cut it back too late to get blossoms this year. There are lots of buds, but I’m hoping that they might be flowers and not just leaves. Time will tell.Reading…Don’t ask.Today…I’m not sure. I need to run to the grocery store. Tonight and tomorrow we have Stake Conference meetings, but today is open. Although, I believe The Doctor has plans to put the boys to work cleaning the garage.Quoting…”Despite knowing the journey…and where it leads…I embrace it…and I welcome every moment of it.” — Dr. Louise Banks, ArrivalFeeling…Tired. I’m always tired. But I am also filled with more hope than I have been in a very long time because of this new adventure in building our own practice.Planning…some deep spring cleaning and some yard work. We have a forsythia that needs trimming and a couple of trees that need some work and a bed of raspberry bushes that needs to go. I hate yard work. Have I ever mentioned that?Gratitude…for opportunities. Opportunities that The Doctor would never have had if we hadn’t made the move to start our own practice.From my world… Everything The Artist is looking forward to this year. Guardians 2 got left off, but otherwise, it’s pretty accurate. And Kong: Skull Island? Awesome. Seriously. It was amazing. We will go see it again, I’m sure. If you do go, stay for the very end credit scene. Especially if you’re a Godzilla fan. There’s a fantastic tie-in for the next film which will be Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020, with the Godzilla from the 2014 film. Which we also loved.What about you? What are you reflecting on this week?
