Currently ...

Reading ... in the Bible I'm in the middle of reading II Corinthians. In other reading I have been enjoying story time with Steven and his stack of library books. I'm not reading any fiction at the moment. In non fiction I'm reading It's OK that You're NOT OK by Megan Devine.  I haven't read all of it yet, but so far it's a book I'd recommend to anyone dealing with grief.

Writing ... has been consisting mostly of text messages. I've tried to write other things, but the words and thoughts don't seem to be co-operating so I'm giving myself a short break until my mind begins to function properly again.

Watching ... not really much of anything. I've tried, but I've found at the end of what ever it is I tried to watch, I only saw bits and pieces of it.

Listening ... to uplifting music.

Cooking ... for tonight's supper we'll be having roasted butternut squash soup, and bruschetta.

Wearing ... my favorite charcoal gray skirt, a purple patterned top, and fuzzy  purple socks.

Drinking ... mostly water, and some garden mint tea.

Loving ... the three cute little snowmen Steven built from the almost inch of snow we woke up to yesterday.

Playing ... Does coloring count as playing? Steven and I have been coloring quite a bit the past week or so.

Needing ... to get our winter's supply of coal for our furnace. Right now our three heaters having been keeping the house nice, but it won't be long before we need the heat from our furnace to stay comfy cozy.

Crafting ... maybe not exactly a craft, but the girls and I varnished, sanded, and varnished a few more time, the shelves and desk Kenneth built for the girls room. Once everything was set up in their room we added a lace trim to the edge of the shelves, and new lace curtains at their windows. Their room looks completely transformed. They love it, and I do as well.


  1. You sound like a very busy lady. Everything that you’ve listed sounds like absolutely wonderful things to do and although maybe not super exciting to some, perfectly wonderful to me. I love how so many of your activities center around your children. My prayers continue to be with you and your family.
    Blessings always my sweet friend,

  2. Praying that God will comfort you and give you grace for each hour.

  3. I have not stopped praying for you, my friend. I have asked God to give you His comfort and strength.

    I love all of the wonderful things you do with your children. Wonderful memories are being made, for sure!!!!

  4. Yes Coloring counts as playing and is very therapeutic too.

  5. Butternut Squash soup is one of our favorites. Do you put cream cheese in yours? And I agree with Kim, colouring counts as playing!

  6. My grandparents had a coal furnace in their house. That thing would literally run you out...


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