Here's what's going on in my life . . . RIGHT NOW.
Watching . . . I just watched Ken Burns' The Dust Bowl on PBS. As usual with a Ken Burns documentary, it was excellent and interesting. But, I must say . . . what a downer!
Reading . . . Astray by Emma Donaghue. (Love me some well-written short stories!). I'm also just about to delve into The Stockholm Octavo by Karen Engelmann, and I just finished Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver (strangely disappointing, yet a solid 3 stars).
Knitting . . . I have set aside my Tinder cardigan temporarily (despite the fact that I only have the right front yet to knit) in order to finish up a few holiday gifts.
Listening to . . . A very eclectic playlist mix on my iPod . . . a little of everything from the BeeGees to the Grateful Dead, from Bruce Springsteen to Gladys Knight, from Hall & Oates to Smashing Pumpkins. Yep. Eclectic. (It's a bit early for me to turn to Christmas music, but soon.)
Thinking about . . . Enough stuff that my head may explode. (There's a lot going on in there right now.
Dreading . . . Taking Jenny out to pee . . . every time . . . on a leash. For four months. Also . . . keeping her from jumping up into "her" favorite chair. (Probably shorter than four months on that one. But . . . Long Enough.)
Humming . . . Roundabout. (Part of my Eclectic Mix. This one stuck.)
Planning . . . Christmas. Natch.
Excited about . . . Brian's Most Excellent exam grade on his P-chem exam this week. (It's the little celebrations that count, y'know?)
Drinking . . . A very nice cab. (With a great label, non?)
Itching to . . . Decorate for Christmas.
Needing to . . . Get shopping!
Organizing . . . Nothin'! That's right. You heard me. Nothin'! Because I actually completed ALL of my planned organization projects this fall! 4 closets, 2 kids bedrooms, 1 guest room, my home office [including file cabinets], the family room, and my sewing/knitting room. Let the wild rumpus start!
Inspired by . . .The calendar. (Probably "inspired" isn't the right word. It's more like . . . "panicked into inspiration by"!)
Delighted by. . . Ummm. I hate to admit this in such a public way. . . but the Angry Birds STAR WARS edition. (Somebody stop me. . . )
How about YOU? What's going on for YOU . . . right now?
Also. With this post, I successfully completed NaBloPoMo. Quietly and without fanfare.
