Currently ...

Reading ... In my Bible, I'm reading through the book of Psalms. It's my favorite book in the Old Testament. In fiction I just finished reading The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg It was a quick, easy read. So different from anything I had ever read before, but I found I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading more books from this author. In non-fiction I'm reading a book by Erma Bombeck. I picked it up at the library on Friday after one of my readers mentioned her in a comment. So far I've really enjoyed her book as well.

Writing ... Other than the usual assortment of lists, and jotting things in my idea books, so far this week I've written emails, a letter, and blog posts. I have some story bits and pieces floating through my head that need to be written before they float away.

Playing ... Does an all out rubber band war count as playing? I have horrible aim, so on the off chance that I actually hit my target I always felt as if a celebration should be in order.

Watching ... Cooking shows, cooking and baking competitions, basically if it's food related I'll be interested. I've learned so much simply by watching these types of shows.

Listening ... to the happy, happy sound of many different kinds of birds singing. I never grow tired of hearing them.

Cooking ... For lunch I'm doing simple burgers ... LV likes plain burgers that the girls have lovingly dubbed "hockey pucks" for the rest of us I like adding this that keep them juicy and less puck-ish.

Eating ... I had deep fried cheesecake when LV took me out to eat for my belated birthday celebration. So, so good! I see it becoming a favorite go to for celebrations.

Drinking ... I'm boring .. it's still water, water, water.

Crafting ... some fun little art projects with Steven, and then I was trying my hand at some origami. It has not been turning out very well.

Wearing ... my favorite charcoal colored skirt and a brown patterned shirt that has an annoying clunky chain attached to it.


  1. Love your dessert. Yummy.

    I spent the weekend listening to the birds at our marina. They were all so very happy.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

  2. I don't seem to be able to master origami either.
    I've never heard of deep fried cheesecake before.

  3. I love listening to the birds singing too! We have a lovely sparrow sitting in a nest in our eves and every day I have to check (from a distance) how she's doing. She sings for me and we keep the other critters at bay!

    And your story of the simple burgers makes me laugh! I'm with LV - the plainer the better! :)


  4. I enjoy the psalms, I was given a art journal bible for my birthday. What a joy illustrating some of my favourite passages.

  5. I read through the Psalms every month. The Book of Common Prayer has them marked out for Morning and Evening each day, and I enjoy the quiet time.

  6. That cheesecake looks amazing! Happy belated birthday to you!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
