Another Slice

It's that time again. . . to share a little slice of my life.  Right here.  Right now.

Right Now, I am . . .

Watching the weekend's big snow dump melt away. 

Reading  Changing Lives: Gustavo Dudamel, El Sistema, and the Transformative Power of Music. This is related to my recent grant-writing flurry (which is still in progress, by the way), but is quite an enjoyable book anyway.  Just finished Leaving the Atocha Station.  Now I'm trying to decide which book to open next. . .

Knitting  a no-name cardigan from the SMC Select Tweed Deluxe booklet (#1820, to be specific) with some pretty significant modifications from the written directions.  I think it'll be worth it.  (I think.)

Listening to Eva Cassidy

Thinking about looking into a iPad app called "Knit Companion."  A couple of co-workers at the yarn shop are raving about it, so I might check it out.  (Thoughts?)

Dreading  all the undone chores piling up during this crazy-busy period of my life.  Ugh.

Planning my own version of March Madness.  Stay tuned. . .

Excited about three upcoming garden conferences!

Happy because both of my kids will be home for their respective spring breaks this year.

Humming Dear Rosemary (Foo Fighters, Wasting Light), can't seem to get rid of this one. . .

Drinking Coffee.  Lots of coffee.

Itching to finish a sewing project I started a couple of weeks ago. . .

Needing to do my taxes.  Ugh.

Organizing . . . well. . . not much right now.  Just keeping track of my calendar and my work is all I can handle!

Grieving Sarkozy Bakery.  This community fixture (where I buy my bread and the occasional cookie) burned down over the weekend.  This is a beloved local business here in Kalamazoo and will be missed. So. Much.  (My photo of the bakery was taken last summer.)

Inspired by Pinterest.  (Maybe a little too much.)

Cooking the usual standards, at the moment.  But looking forward to diving into a new cookbook I just picked up:  Pam Anderson's Cook Without a Book: Meatless Meals.

Watching the Academy Awards.  I love the dresses (of course). . . but this year, I enjoyed the whole show.  Maybe it's because I actually saw most of the nominated movies this year, or maybe I just like Billy Crystal, or maybe it was Ellen DeGeneres and the JCP commercials.  Not sure. . . but isn't the little pup from The Artist just about the most darling creature ever?

Delighted by a little moss plant I picked up at the health food store when I stopped in for calcium tablets.

What's happening for you. . . right now?

Good Morning Kym! Spending some time on Pinterest/loved the Academy Awards/keeping track of Dad's appointments/also anticipating the previously unplanned arrival of Dan for spring break! Happy Monday!

Marilyn

Sounds like you are busy! There was snow here yesterday and so I'm listening to the whine of the bobcat's motor as driveways are being cleaned out...and I'm also awaiting the blizzard that's forecast for Tuesday night. o.0

Atocha Station stunned me with the style of writing. It's stayed on my mind for weeks now. Wake of Forgiveness is even better. YMMV
We had a weekend of abundant sunshine, but it was too chilly to be outdoors for long.
No Oscars here.

Mary

good busy. looks like you've got some great fun stuff going on. I need to get my thoughts organized for my february currents. (can't believe it's nearly march!)

Carole

Right now I am catching up on TV I missed while away this weekend. I'm knitting and checking blogs occasionally, too.

Cynthia

Love your list Kym! I have to check out the books for sure. I love the irony of a book that wants you to cook without a book (I do want to know what you think of it though!). I am so so sorry to hear about the bakery; what a tragedy!

Don't do the Oscars - just too self congratulatory and self absorbed for me.

Cookie

Wonderful post!

I'm playing nursemaid while pondering my new haircut. I think it's going to require a flat iron, but I'm in denial. Pot roast for dinner and maybe French Onion Soup later in the week.

Pam

A busy week here too - though I'm procrastinating when I should be going to bed right now. Wanted to tell you that Eva Cassidy's version of Fields of Gold is my favorite version of a favorite song. I love Time after Time as well.
