What's Up Wednesday

Linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's up Wednesday.

What we're eating this week...
Sunday - Nacho Burgers (ground beef mixed up with cumin, oregano, salt and pepper.  Buns toasted with melted butter and chili powder.  Topped with cheese, crushed nacho chips, and salsa)
Monday - Chicken and Sweet Potato Risotto
Tuesday - Thai Chicken Curry in the Slow Cooker
Wednesday - Sausage and Potato Frittata
Thursday - Tacos
Friday - Dave and I are going out with my work friends to Bent

What I'm reminiscing about...
I always think about stuff we had done the year before, and people we were hanging out with, but nothing specific comes to mind.

What I'm loving...
The last few episodes of Downton Abbey.  I just love everyone so much and the writing and the lines and everything is so great.  I will miss these (fictional) people when it is finally all over.  What a masterpiece.

What we've been up to...
Struggling.  Not really, but it feels like February has flown by without being super productive.  I'm hoping that I can get back on track in March.

What I'm dreading...
Registering for summer camps on Saturday morning.  I will be at the computer by 7:00 am with my coffee, hitting refresh over and over.

What I'm working on...
I had a slow January at work, but February has heated up.  I am working on a large sale transaction, and a few small ones, setting up some new corporations, complete with shareholders' agreement and services agreement, fun stuff!

What I'm excited about...
Getting our Easter decorations out and putting them up this weekend.

What I'm watching/reading...
We are trying to watch all of the Best Picture nominees before Sunday night.  That means our TV shows have been put on hold this week.

I finally finished the third book of the Ken Follett Century Trilogy. I got it last Christmas and have been reading it on and off all year.  I love these books; they are very detailed and have a lot of characters, but you learn a lot and the connections between the characters is always very interesting.

What I'm listening to...
We listen to Google Play for our music streaming service.  My favourite playlists are: Songs to Raise Your Kids To, The Ultimate Family Dance Party, and Anthemic Pop.  I got Dave a Bose bluetooth speaker for Christmas and it has been great!

What I'm wearing...
An old coat, and I've decided I need a new one for next winter.   

I thought this looked like a lovely jacket and then I see it is $1,000 so I'll keep shopping. 

What I'm doing this weekend...
Going out for supper on Friday night with friends, skiing for the last of E's lessons of the year, dinner with our skiing friends, taking E to a birthday party, and watching the Oscars. 

What I'm looking forward to next month...
Bowling with work, St. Patrick's Day, Dave's Birthday and Easter.  

What else is new... 
Not too much. Enjoying whatever weather comes our way, snow or sun, cold or warm.  
What is your favourite Easter tradition... 
My church where I grew up had a few sunrise Easter services at Island's Park and I always loved them.  Last year our church in Toronto had a sunrise service at the park by our house.  E and I got up early and walked down for it, and when we got back home the Easter Bunny had been there and E got to look for some eggs.  I'm hoping they will do the same service this year. 

Last year's service.
