Right Now...

Right Now: December

Watching: Well, last night it was FOOTBALL… they're calling it the Miracle in Motown. And it was. I've also begun watching Madame Secretary (S1 on Netflix).


Reading: COOP by Michael Perry. I've had this book since it was hot off the press and Michael signed it for me (and posed with Flat Stanley) during an appearance at our local book festival. I guess it needed to cool off. I've read TRUCK in the meantime, and next will likely pluck VISITING TOM from the stack. I am loving it, of course; I enjoy his writing.


Knitting: As of last night, I'm ready for the last section/finish of the March Through Time KAL. I've enjoyed knitting this project and I'm looking forward to wearing it.


I also finished a hat last night (except for some weaving in) and cast on another, the second of four that I intend to knit for Christmas gifts. I'll be using the same pattern for all, but each in a different yarn(s). Super bulky yarn! Oh, these colors…

Listening to: 25 by Adele. Hello, of course, but I definitely have some other favorites.

Thinking about: Going somewhere. I think Mexico/Cali is out because of logistics. A few days in Chicago with the girls is likely in. But I want to GOOOO SOMEWHERE!

Dreading: Choosing not to feel dreadful about anything right now.

Planning: The holiday festivities, the last of the shopping, baking.

Celebrating: With my coworkers tonight at a company party!

Drinking: Coffee, tea, London Fog (Earl Grey) latte, gin, beer, kombucha, water.

Itching to: Get back to sewing!

Needing to: Get my tree up!

Organizing: My gift list.

How about YOU?  What's up with you?

  1. Helping with our annual Christmas event this weekend, hosting a dinner party tomorrow night afterwards for some volunteers, and planning a post like this for Monday!

  2. I’ve been looking for something to read – gentle, realistic, able to restore some of my faith in humanity – and Truck sounds like it might be just the thing. I hope it’s as good as I’m wishing since Michael Perry looks like a prolific author. So that’s what I’ll be doing – reading, decorating, and knitting. Thanks for the links!

  3. Another Michael Perry fan here. And although I didn’t watch the game last night, Smokey caught the last two minutes and described it to me in excruciating detail. Go, Aaron!

  4. Love this post – so much good stuff going on (and yay for choosing not to feel dreadful about anything). I have a skein of Rasta that would make a lovely hat – which pattern are you using?

  5. You’ve got a great lot of stuff happening right now! I love December — so much busy-ness, but also a whole lot of fun. XO
