Right Now

I was going to post about our California trip today, but after being out of town the last few days I haven't got time. Too busy playing catch up.

I popped over to the Carole Knits blog (not that I knit) and saw she'd posted something really quick for today. Sounded good to me, so I'm hopping on the band-wagon!

This is what I'm doing right now:

Drinking: Coffee from the "Hope" mug one of my best friends bought me a couple of years ago. It's part of this series, but I don't see this specific mug there now.

Reading: Time to Thrive (Chicken Soup for the Soul). I still have one book left to read (X) in the Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge.

Watching: Last Man Standing, season one. It's hysterical. Tim Allen at his finest.

Listening: Sirius XM, one of the Christian stations.

Knitting: Nothing. Unfortunately, I'm not handicraft-gifted.

Planting: Nothing. The ground is too hard. But I did bring home a poinsettia from my mom's place yesterday.

Buying: Christmas presents. I’m almost there and that feels great.

Dropping: A little weight. I still feel like an inflated beach ball, but according to the scale this morning I'm down almost two pounds. Must keep going.

Wrapping: nothing at all yet. 

Anticipating: getting the house cleaned up before Christmas. More immediately, my book club Christian luncheon this Friday. May it become an annual tradition.

Baking: Nothing right now. But I plan to bake a few things before Christmas hits. Hoping my daughter will help once her exams end (Friday).

I’d love to hear what’s going on in your world right now. Do tell!


  1. I like this! I need to do some baking too. I am not buying anything that needs wrapped. Just handing them the money and let them buy it for themselves. That is what they love best!!

    1. Yes, at a certain age that's indeed what they like best. My two as well; that's where their grandparents come in ;)

  2. What a nice quick catch-up and a reminder to get some baked goods!


I appreciate your comments and try to respond to each one!
