Right Now

Drinking: I've had one of my son's very strong coffees and that may be it for coffee for the rest of the day. That boy's had negative symptoms in the past and had to eliminate coffee and I sadly expect he'll have to go through this again before he gets wise. Not at a stage where he listens to the wisdom of his parents, unfortunately.

I have a litre of water available to drink for the rest of the day, and will try to drink it all, and more.

Eating: For breakfast I had the heel off a loaf of homemade whole wheat bread spread with coconut oil. Also a serving of Honey Shreddies with almond milk. I bought the honey version at my son's behest and didn't realize I wasn't opening original Shreddies this morning. A difference of 7 grams of sugar - pah!
I think this is actually 'Life' cereal, but close enough!
Not sure what I'm having for lunch yet. I'll be at work and I'm sort of bored of brown-bagging it. I brought some "dollars" that we can use at any local business, so I imagine it'll either be a wrap or a salad.

Not sure about supper either. Tired of making those too and aiming for variety. I bought some tofu at the end of last week, so I may try to find a recipe and hope it passes as better than edible to the rest of the family. My son is unlikely to try it. He'll eat sushi and try eel, but forget about Mama's home cooking experiments!

Reading: Just finished reading Francis Chan's Forgotten God. An excellent book; highly recommend it to the Christ-follower who wants a richer spiritual life. It's on my re-read list; as always, it's one thing to have knowledge, another to apply it. Also finished historical mystery, Death Comes to Pemberley, which I reviewed on Tuesday. Today I'm starting one of Debbie Macomber's non-fiction books, One Simple Act, about the power of generosity.

Watching: Saw Rogue One on DVD on the weekend, ane enjoyed it. Brought a few more DVDs home from the library: Rumble Fish, Olympus Has Fallen, and Moonlight. Not sure which one we'll watch first. Suggestions?

Listening: Sirius XM, the Message. Subscription runs out this coming Monday.

Creating: Working on revisions to the novel and on blog posts. In other words, the usual.

Buying: Not much. Trying to avoid big credit card bills at the end of the month. But - massage, today's lunch, groceries... We still have to eat! And we still have to order shower doors, a robe hook and toilet paper holder for the bathroom reno.

Anticipating: Reunion with my husband's side of the family Saturday. My brother-in-law owns a large acreage up north so we usually meet there. Hoping for nice weather; it's been a little cooler this week and today we're expecting thunderstorms. Would be crummy if it's like that Saturday and we have to be cooped up in the house. The house is nice but it's not big and there are a lot of us now.

Anything new with you? What are you reading, watching, creating, anticipating?


  1. You are seriously choosing to eat this way? New with me? Not much. Read Isaac's Storm this past week. That's really the only new thing.
    Visit me @ Life & Faith in Caneyhead. 😉

    1. Yep, it's a serious choice!! Didn't get the tofu made yet, but am thinking of trying a tofu scramble tonight. First to buy some spinach!

      How was Isaac's Storm?


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