Sunday Salon: New Year

It’s a new year with new books and new adventures.

Week’s Highlight:

We went to see Hamilton in Pittsburgh yesterday. It was fabulous! My mom got us the tickets for Christmas.

Celebrating:

Monday was New Year’s Eve and we had some friends over to our house for board games and food. It was fun, if unexciting. We got two new board games for Christmas, Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig and Spirit Island. They’re both fun and neither are too heavy.

Reading:

My first print book of the year is The Three Musketeers. My copy has 704 pages; I’m currently on page 102. So far I’m enjoying it. I also want to join in with Silvia Cachia’s read-a-long of Don Quixote, another long classic, but at 7 chapters a week I think I can keep up. My first audio is The Kingdom of the Blind by Louise Penny.

Fitness:

One of my unstated goals for 2019 is getting back to running. I’ve been on the treadmill at the gym three times this week, for a total of 5.8 miles of walking/jogging/running. I also did weights one day.

Looking forward to:

Amber’s birthday is this coming week. Other than that, it should be a pretty normal week.
