currently, december ed.

watching: currently Toy Story 3. It's a snowy day and we have no plans, so movies it is.

listening to: I just discovered that Ingrid Michaelson has a Christmas album. It's so good! Of course it is.

cooking: spaghetti 

drinking: Lady Grey tea

enjoying: the snow! It's finally snowing. I'm trying to enjoy it as much as possible since the week of Christmas is supposed to be depressingly warm. 

thinking about: all the presents I have to wrap still and all the cookies I have to bake and packing I have to do. Deep breaths. I saw this the other day and it is TOO TRUE. All I want to do is sit by the tree and read, but there is SO MUCH TO DO. I'm still sitting by the tree to read. Just not as much as I would like.

resenting: our stupid bunny. I spent an eternity wrapping the other night, and two seconds after putting gifts under the tree, SHE ATE THE WRAPPING PAPER OFF THEM. I almost threw her outside. Needless to say, she's no longer allowed in the living room.

smelling: a pine candle and the toast I just made.

reading: Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty. I think she's becoming one of my favorite authors. Her writing style is just so good.

loving: Gracie had her preschool Christmas program yesterday and it was the sweetest thing EVER. I had no idea they would be in costume, and my hormonal self burst into tears as soon as she walked up to the stage wearing her angel get up.

laughing about: this blog post. It's one of my favorite posts that I've ever read. I was crying laughing and read it over and over. This is me with virtually every knitting pattern. I've been doing it for nearly 15 years and never seem to get much better. 


  1. Toy Story 3 makes me sob every time I watch it!

  2. I love Liane Morairty too. I never did get to finish Nine Perfect Strangers because it was due back to the library... let me know how it ends :)
    Off to read that blog post right now ... you had me at knitting!

  3. sounds like a great Christmas. I have a no pet home and I am ever so thankful!
