Right Now . . . November 2013

End of November.

Dark.  Cold.  Thanksgiving's over.

Time to hibernate -- and keep warm inside!

What's happening . . . Right Now?


Watching . . . Time to drag out the Christmas favorites:  Love Actually.  A Christmas Story.  Muppets Christmas Carol.

Reading . . . Nearing the end of Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch.  Donna Tartt certainly writes a good story . . . But.  I always hate her characters!  It's tough for me to LOVE a book when I despise the main character.  (Still. Worth the read.)  I've also just started reading The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin.

Knitting . . . Working away on a nice, relaxing, rhythmic project (Churchmouse's Easy Folded Poncho).  Just made Brian a hat (details next week).  No Christmas knitting for me this year, and that feels really good!

Listening to. . . Justin Timberlake.  


Planning . . . December.  Of course.

Drinking . . . Tonight?  A nice cab!  (Yesterday?  A little of everything!)


Needing to . . . Get myself on track before December careens out of control ahead of me!

Itching to . . . Finish all Christmas shopping and Put an End to It.

Organizing . . . Final, extensive clearing out of Brian's childhood/high school detritus.  (I've got plans for that room!)

Humming . . .  Lately it's been all Abbey Road.  All the time.


Inspired by . . . A label from a new bag . . .


Delighted by . . .   The bag!

Surprised by . . . How comfortable my new reclining couch is!  I think I could live in it!  (And I am definitely in danger of becoming a tv-watcher, just so I can sit in recline-o-comfort more often.)

How about YOU?  What's going on for you . . . right now?

Loving the long weekend. Cooking, knitting, reading...the good life.
I've loved you daily posts!


Trying to figure out how to decorate the exterior of our new house. It's harder than I expected!
Have a good weekend!!


I've really enjoyed daily reads from you this month...hope December gets off to a great start!


That all sounds good. I need to see pictures of the reclining couch, though.


I'm dragging my feet finishing The Goldfinch as I really don't want it to end! There are some less than savory characters but Theo, Hobie, and even Boris are characters that I will miss. Hope you stay warm, organized, and reclined!


I started The Goldfinch last night. Damn, that Tartt woman is a good writer! 781 pages is a long read, but if the first 50 pages are any indication, I will stick with it. Both of her other books were good, too.

We watched Love, Actually last night. It has become a Thanksgiving tradition in our house, a way to begin the Christmas season.

Have been loving your daily posts this month. Have a great weekend!


Right now? I really need to get a handle on December!!
