Eating: A lot of new recipes! I recently picked up the Weeknight Meals edition of Clean Eating Magazine which features a lot of inexpensive and quick recipes. I have really enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen. Their Jamaican Jerk Kabobs might be my new favorite go-to recipe. I also really loved learning how to make spring rolls from the Minimalist Baker blog. So, so good.

Drinking: Twining's Irish Breakfast Tea. I love a good breakfast tea. Christopher and I also really enjoyed Penobscot Bay Brewery's Winnah 2013, a Christmas present from our friend Deanna. Christopher loved the Jolly Traveler's Winter Shandy, but I was less of fan. It was a little too fruity for me.
Reading: I just finished Animal Farm by George Orwell and I seriously loved it. The last line in particular was just brilliant, "The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which." SO GOOD.

On my "books to read" list: The Voyage of the Narwhal by Andrea Barrett, The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury, The Island of Lost Maps: A True Story of Cartographic Crime by Miles Harvey, and Burial Rights by Hannah Kent. I am really making an effort to get back into fiction and not get burnt out on school books.
Watching: While staying in a hotel in Boston, I started watching Legend of the Superstition Mountains on the History Channel. I came home and bought the whole season. If you have ever wanted to be Indiana Jones, this is the show for you.

Doing: Once again, a lot within the community. I just became a member of the Brewer Historical Society and I am eager to starting making connections within the community. National History Day is coming up and that should be a blast!
Anticipating: Spring. WHERE ARE YOU?
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
