Currently ...

Reading ... I'm in Proverbs in my Bible. In other reading, I'm in-between books at the moment, but I have a stack of books here that are waiting to be read. It includes the latest by Suzanne Woods Fisher, Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan, and a non-fiction Happy Wives Club by Fawn Weaver. My cookbook pile from the library is substantial, and I'm hoping to enjoy some of those later today to see if I can find a recipe or two we might like to try. As always there's also the stack of books Steven and I enjoy as part of our bedtime routine. Last night that included the book, Billions of Bricks. It was a hit, partly because it was construction related, and partly because it was written in rhyming form which made it extra enjoyable for both of us.

Writing ... not much at the moment. I still haven't upgraded to the latest Word program, which means any writing I'm doing is limited to letters, emails, texts, and blog posts.

Watching ... the sun begin to tint the eastern sky in a frigid glow.

Listening ... to the hum of the refrigerator in the kitchen, the ticking of the clock on the wall, and the fun noise a pencil makes as it travels across paper.

Eating ... I haven't eaten anything yet today, but yesterday we had baked chicken. I also, for the first time in months decided to have a bowl of cold cereal. Big mistake! I think I'd rather give birth than go through the aftermath of that again.

Drinking ... mostly water, though I did enjoy a cup of hot chocolate yesterday.

Wearing ... a comfortable and unattractive dress that I hopped into this morning. I decided since I'll be changing in a few hours any way, that it will be okay until then. Hopefully no one will stop in before then.

Loving ... all the birds that are using the bird feeder we have behind our house. They're so much fun to watch!

Disliking ... how close our neighborhood made it onto the news after a snowplow did not stop for the school bus that was stopped for our neighbor's children. Thankfully, nothing bad happened, but it could have very easily.

Crafting ... we have several different craft projects going at the moment. There are two applique lap quilts in progress, a scarf that is almost done being knitted, and an apron that still needs its pocket. We made a few giant pom poms for Steven last week for a game he wanted to play.

Wanting ... to list some things on ebay that we don't need any longer.

Later today ... we'll be heading to the dentist for routine check ups and cleaning of teeth. I'm hoping no cavities will be found. I'm also hoping that there will be room to park in his tiny parking lot, other wise I'll have to parallel park along the street, and it just so happens that is one of my least favorite activities.


  1. I am not a fan of parallel parking either. I am working on a Bible Study The Transforming Trinity, rediscovering the heart of our faith.

  2. I love how you were able to make even every day things sound interesting, like listening to the hum of the refrigerator. And I am with you. When I’m at home and not planning to see any one, I wear my most comfortable dress which is not very attractive. But sometimes comfort is very important! Here’s hoping there’s no parallel parking in your immediate future. Blessings, Betsy

  3. Your day sounds busy and sweet. I enjoyed visiting with you as you laid out your plans for the day. Hope it has been a blessing to you as well.

  4. Well, at least you got into a dress. There are days when I don't even get out of my robe! Fortunately, we live far enough back that I can pop out to fill the bird feeders, etc., without being seen. And I heartily agree with you about parallel parking!


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