Here's what's going on in my life . . . RIGHT NOW.
Watching . . . Downton Abbey, of course. (Still in shock over the demise of Lady Sybil. . .) An episode of Portlandia every now and then, for laughs. (Put a bird on it . . .) And movies. (Lots of movies.)
Reading . . . Alice Munro's newest short-story collection, Dear Life. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. And the poetry of Mary Oliver. (Don't forget . . . Silent Poetry Reading, blog-style, coming up on February 2!)
Knitting . . . Ei-yi-yi! We really will not speak of knitting today. Except to say that my Tinder cardigan is finished (except for buttons and blocking). It is currently in a bit of a balled up wad in the corner. There was (ahem) a bit of an issue with one-row buttonholes. But I had a lot of practice. And now they're perfect. PERFECT, I tell you. I also finished a sock. And that's all I'm going to say about knitting.
Listening to . . . Respighi, Ben Harper, and Motion City Soundtrack. Also. . . Macklemore*. (Thanks for the introduction, Brian!)
Thinking about . . . Being open to SURPRISES in my life.
Dreading . . . Wallpaper removal. And how it's really the only thing holding me back from a having a cool bathroom.
Humming . . . Sweet Emotion. Aerosmith.
Planning . . . A special birthday celebration for my special friend, Sandie. A little trip with my sister (to Not Europe). And how to get everything ready to deal with my recalled iMac (Still. I don't want to do it.).
Celebrating . . . Another 6-month oncology check-up under my belt. All is well.
Drinking . . . Chai latte. I got hooked on this great mix from a local coffee/tea company. Like. . . really hooked. And now, I can't find any more. So sad.
Itching to . . . Plant something!
Needing to . . . Get straight with what YEAR it is. Here it is, the end of January, and I'm still having a hard time writing 2013!!!
Organizing . . . My address book and letter-writing tools. Tomorrow begins the Month of Letters. Join in -- click on the link in my sidebar and learn more.
Delighted by. . . My new - and practically-perfect-in-every-way bag for work! After years (seriously. . . YEARS!), I have finally found the most wonderful work/laptop bag in the world (and fairly reasonably priced, too).
How about YOU? What's going on for YOU . . . right now?
