Reading: Heart Like Mine by Amy Hatvany. This is a book I've owned for years that I'm finally getting around to reading. One of my goals for the year was to read 12 books I own, and this is the 10th book I'm reading for that goal, so I'm fairly close to completing that goal!
Loving: how cuddly Oscar has been lately. I haven't spent much time sitting on the couch lately since I've had a go go go schedule, so when I do sit down, Oscar jumps right up into my lap. I think it's her way of trying to get me to relax more. It's pretty effective as who can resist a cute cat in their lap??
Thinking: about changes I need to make to avoid having an overly full calendar. I keep saying my schedule is too busy but I haven't really done anything about it. I think I need to start to hold certain days of the week as plan-free nights. I did say no to 2 invitations for get-togethers this week so I guess that's progress...
Anticipating: hosting our annual pumpkin carving party this Saturday. We host Phil's college friend each year and it's such a fun event. This year we are having it in the late afternoon so that our friends with kids can attend. I'm serving 2 kinds of chili and cornbread and a friend is bringing pumpkin bars. It's going to be such a fun and delicious night! I'll be sure to share pictures of our
Watching: the 2nd season of Bloodline on Netflix. We don't like it as much as the first season but are going to see it through until the end.
Working: on crocheting a chevron afghan and knitting a pair of socks. Now that it's cold out, I'm all about the yarn crafts.
|This weekend I will learn how to make the heel of the socks!|
Grateful: that I had more than enough airline miles to buy my Spain plane ticket. That significantly cuts down the cost of the trip!
Listening: to a new book podcast called "From the Front Porch." It's a podcast hosted by the owner, Annie, and a staff member, Chris, of a bookstore in southern Georgia. I learned about this podcast when Annie was a guest on Anne Bogel's podcast, "What Should I Read Next." Warning - listening to this podcast might make you want to quit your job and buy an independent bookstore.
Wishing: that there was one 3-day weekend a month. I do have a vacation coming up so I can't complain too much I'd love to have more long weekends!
What are you reading, anticipating, and grateful for these days?
