Reading ... in the Bible, I'm in Jeremiah and Psalms. I find I like to read a Psalm everyday in addition to what ever else I'm reading in the Bible.

Thankfully I got caught up with my sleep since the last time I did a Currently post and I can actually enjoy reading without getting sleepy.

In fiction, I'm enjoying some older children's books. The Year of Miss Agnes is a delightful little read, and Feodora by E.M. Jewett is still every bit as good as the last time I read it. I'm searching for more books by her, and finding it extremely hard to find anything.

In non-fiction, I read Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so that I want to get my own copy for our bookshelf. I may have to check it out from the library a few more times until I actually get my own copy. I have this thing where if I really like a book I enjoy rereading it, and I really, really liked this one.

From the stack of library books Steven and I enjoy reading ... Rodeo Red was our favorite this week.

Writing ... This morning it consisted of simply getting all the school assignments ready. We're nearing the end of another school year. It feels a little bitter sweet. Somehow these years manage to fly by surprisingly fast.

Watching ... the slice of moon shining in the darkness just before dawn. It's moving in and out of the clouds as it nears the end of its trek across the night sky.

Listening ... Having teenagers with their ever changing taste in music, I have listened to a LOT of different music. Sharon's current go to is classical music, especially Bach. Rosie Mae, on the other hand, has finally found something I simply can't stand listening to; praise/worship in Latin.

Eating ... We've been eating a lot of rice lately. There are so many delicious ways to prepare it.

Cooking ... I'm looking for something simple for tonight. We have an extra busy day ahead of us, and our next few days look to be filled to the brim, so the less time I have to spend cooking, the easier it will be to get everything else taken care of properly.

Wearing ... a maxi dress with flutter sleeves. It's one of my favorites. The only thing that would make me like it better than I already do, is if it had pockets. What is with the lack of proper pockets in women's clothing?

Playing ... lately it has been lots of dominoes and balloon volley ball with Steven.

Crafting ... I've not been doing much, other than some paper crafts with Steven. The girls on the other hand have been spending quite a bit of time in the evenings working on their diamond painting projects.

Later today ... It's been a while since the last time we washed and waxed our vehicle, but if it gets warm enough this afternoon we're hoping to get that done once again.


  1. Praise and worship music in Latin? Now that’s one thing I have to admit I have never heard. I can’t even wrap my brain around it! And I agree with you on the lack of pockets in women’s clothing. I have actually taken the side seams out of some of my skirts and dresses and added pockets. I knitted myself a cardigan sweater and the reason I chose that pattern was because it had, you guessed it, pockets! I hope you have a lovely day.

    1. I guess I should try adding pockets to some of my skirts and dresses.

  2. There are some Jowett books on Amazon UK, not many. If you have a problem getting them I could always send to you.

    1. I'm looking specifically for Judith and Jane by E.M. Jewett. I checked Amazon, but have not been able to find it.

  3. Busy days but I had to stop and think about Praise and Worship in Latin...That's a new one for me. Fascinating

    1. Was new for me too, I'm hoping to not have to listen to it often.

  4. There is just so much I would like to comment on, but you would be tired of reading. I have several books that I re-read every so often. The series by James Herriot: 1. All Creatures Great and Small 2. All Things Wise and Wonderful 3. All Things Bright and Beautiful 4. The Lord God Made Them All---I would hate to know how many times I have read each of them.

    Then there is Sod And Stubble by John should look it up. It is non-fiction.

    And there are others too numerous to mention. mom always put pockets in her usually wore an apron with pockets.

    1. Ooh … never hesitate leaving long comments. I love reading what my readers have to say.

  5. A day in the life … always enjoy these sorts of peeks into people's lives. Do enjoy reading your Currently series.

    Wishing you a beautiful weekend...
