Reading… The Grace of Dogs. After hearing the author on a podcast, I was excited to check out this book. It explores our relationships with dogs. Do they really love us or just love that we feed them? Do they understand us when we talk to them? If dog books are a trigger for you, this one will make you cry at the very beginning but is not emotional all the way through.
Watching… Lady Bird. I’d been looking forward to seeing this movie. It was okay; it was a bit slow and there wasn’t much of a plot. If you were never a teenage girl, I’m betting you will not like it at all.
Listening to… Armchair Expert. I’m a fan of Dax Shepard (and Kristin Bell). I’ve listened to a couple of episodes of his new podcast and have really enjoyed it. Shepard comes across as a very curious person which in my opinion makes for a great interview/conversation.
Trying… to go paperless. A few years ago, I managed to (mostly) do away with using paper towels. For some reason I got back in the habit and am working to break it again. I bought a set of these microfiber cloths which should pay for themselves pretty quickly. As long as I have dogs, I will probably always keep paper towels in the house, but if I can dramatically reduce consumption, I will be happy.
Wanting… TOMS Pom Pom Sandals. Pretty soon, all the shoes in my closet are going to be TOMS. They are so comfortable! These look like they would be really versatile. So far, I haven’t seen any reviews so I’ll be keeping my eye on them.
