The Scene: 8:33 am - sitting on couch, coffee in hand (as usual on a Sunday!) I have been up for a few hours because I am still dealing with some jet lag since returning from my trip. I love being a morning person for a precious few days after getting back from a trip! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some pics from my trip. If not, I included a few below:

|Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe|
|Elephants - Chobe National Park, Botswana|
Reading: Fortunately, between the trip and these early mornings, I have been getting a lot of reading done. This morning I finished Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight - it is an excellent mystery/thriller and I think will strike fear in most parent's hearts. I don't even have kids and was haunted by the secret lives that many kids face while at school. Earlier this week, I finished Nora Webster by Colm Toibin. He is a favorite author of mine and while I enjoyed his latest book, I am not sure I think it is his best.
Blogging: Yesterday I posted my review of The Way Life Should Be by Christina Baker Kline. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be reading others by the author. I am hoping to use my short-lived spurt as a morning person to get ahead on blogging this weekend and catching up on reviews.
Watching : While away, I missed the start of Season 5 of Downton Abbey. I can't wait to catch up on the first 2 episodes - today's project will be figuring out how to stream from my laptop to the TV so I can watch episode 1 and 2 before episode 3 airs tonight.
While I was in the UK for a meeting last week, I heard about a series there that I think I will like - Broadchurch. Season 2 just started airing in the UK but Season 1 is available here on Netflix. I forsee a binge-watching session in my future! Have you seen or heard about Broadchurch?
Looking Forward To: Getting back into a routine - vacation was wonderful but now the routine of going to the gym and eating regular meals at home seems welcome!
Hope everyone has a relaxing Sunday!
