My 2018 Book List So Far (in no particular order)

This year, I resolved to read a lot more, and lately I’ve been getting up extra early, not looking at my phone, and sitting down with coffee and a book. Mostly on dead trees, from my neighborhood libraries. I’ve lately adopted David Cancel’s habit of capturing interesting passages or quotes on the fly through my Instagram story feed, but I also wanted to summarize for myself some of what I’ve read and what I’ve taken away so far in 2018. There are some themes here – entrepreneurship, self discovery, leadership – but I wouldn’t say I’ve chosen these titles methodically. Hopefully y’all will find this useful as well, and perhaps have some suggestions about what inspired you and what I should be reading next.

Lemon ginger catfish

Spotted fresh wild blue catfish on the cheap at Whole Foods, an avocado, and some ingredients I had on hand, and whipped this up…

[ ] 4 catfish fillets (approximately 1 lb)
[ ] 1 tbs light olive oil
[ ] 1 tbs soy sauce
[ ] 1 tsp fish sauce
[ ] 2 inch piece of ginger, minced (approx 1.5 tbs)
[ ] Zest of one lemon
[ ] 1/2 lemon, juiced, reserve other half as wedges for serving
[ ] 1 avocado sliced for serving

Meet Max

Seems that another new member of our family is worth a blog post (the first since ... well, I a long time).

Max is a 7 year old Siberian Husky.

The downside of a mid-engine car

Having to access the belt through the cabin, after unbolting an unbelievable amount of crap.

And yes, that's a broken Ikea lamp.

Elephants, airplanes and jackasses, oh my!

We joined Karljin, Dries and the boys at the Aleppo Shriners Auditorium for a mid-winter indoor fair, complete with elephant rides, petting zoo and carnies.
