On my nightstand: A whole lot of Sebastian Faulks, who is one of my favourite authors. I've just started the final book of his France trilogy (the books are all stand-alone, but share themes including WWII and France). I highly recommend any of his books, but especially Birdsong (the second in the trilogy) and A Week in December (set in London). I wrote a bit about them here. I got into the France trilogy by reading a trilogy of my own (a re-read of Chocolat by Joanne Harris, and The Virgin Blue by Tracy Chevalier). I'm also working my way through the Museo del Prado collection guide - that will take some time!
On Screen: I can't say I watched anything great on TV - lately when I turn it on I just fall asleep on the couch! I did see Glitch, which was a fun film.
On my MP3: Norah Jones. Her entire Don't Know Why album, it's such a (relatively) oldie but a goodie, AND it's good inside-music - the weather is very much encouraging me to stay inside - it's cold, windy and wet.
In my browser: My cousin's blog. She's on a 317-day long journey to find the awesomeness in every day. If you're feeling blue or you just like reading about awesomeness, check her out!
On my plate: So many awesome meals you'd be jealous if I named them all. I cooked my way through the February issue of Chatelaine. Highlights: maple quinoa and chicken. Bison stew. Raw Brussels sprouts and green apple salad (so crunchy!). I wish one of these cupcakes were on my plate - if you're in London, you can get them made-to-order or pick one up at Fairly Square. She also does cakes...
In my mug: Homemade ginger-honey-lemon tisanes and nettle infusions. Everyone except for me has been sick or is sick or is getting sick. I'm not getting sick!
On my mind: A good sermon that's left me wondering what or who the "foxes" in my life are, and trying to avoid being someone else's fox. Fox, despite today's distorted ideas, is not a compliment. Why, in movies, books, on TV, in the news, do we value cunning? Who wants to be a sneaky trickster?
In my agenda: There's some time carved out for pen-to-paper journal time, which I haven't been doing lately but miss. A trip to Museo del Prado. A coffee with a new friend.
On my to-do list: Hanging things, mainly art. Also mirrors and photos. We recently painted and haven't gotten around to putting things back up.
