Currents

Here’s what’s happening in my world right now . . .

journaling for carole knits

Journaling: Every day. Sometimes lots of words, sometimes a sketch or drawing, always doodles and always with the addition of colored pencils.

Wearing: Green. Although it’s olive green and not a true Irish green. But still, I’m making my best effort so I don’t get pinched.

Anticipating: Corned Beef & Cabbage at the COA tonight. Our chef makes a delicious dinner and I can’t wait.

Reading: You guysssz, I just finished The Tsar of Love and Techno and it was phenomenal. So good. I’m grateful for Kym for pushing me to read this one since I was not a fan of A Constellation of Vital Phenomenon.

Listening: H is for Hawk on audio. I’m only a little over an hour in but it’s great.

Watching: House of Cards. We have 2 episodes left and I think this season has been so much better than the last.

Knitting: Socks with some truly vintage Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn. And also a Zick Zack Scarf. A scarf on size 2 needles. This could take a while.

Loving: My new meditating habit. I’ve done this daily for over two months now and I’m at the point where I look forward to it every day. Is it perfect? No. But it’s practice and it has changed my life.

Hoping: We don’t have any more snow days. I’m trying to plan a June vacation and I need to be confident on when the last day of school will be.

Planning: Easter dinner. I make the same thing every year and I’m open to suggestions if you have any.

    Easter dinner is my nemesis. My beloved won’t eat ham or lamb and we are a family of two. I actually mentioned his favorite pizza place over the weekend and his eyes lit up. I think that may be our plan since Sunday is date night anyway. That probably doesn’t help you though.

    Not looking good for snowless Sunday/Monday coming up. Maybe not in your neck of the woods?

    Your journal looks so good. Mine is mostly words and I need to have some fun and do the doodling, too. Green socks…so glad I made green socks because I have no other green to wear. Enjoy your good food!

    My Easter dinner is the same every year, too. Although I do tend to go a little crazy with dessert . . . I’m so glad you liked The Tsar! It’s my favorite book in a very long time. (I wasn’t so crazy about H is for Hawk, though.) Here’s to no more snow days — and planning June vacations. (And journaling and meditating, too, for that matter.) XO

    This Italian girl totally forgot about wearing green. Hubby is making his corned beef. I will be eating Chinese food. I love your journal! There is a threat of the S word on Monday. I don’t believe it though.

    oh, and if you order a ham, add some Nuske Applewood Smoked Bacon to your cart too. Our local grocery store carries it and it is now the only bacon we buy.

    Journaling is the best – I have been writing regularly now for just over a year and it has truly helped me focus, solve problems, plan, dream, and just be a better writer!

    As for Easter dinner… I am making a small leg of lamb and I think I will make a potato recipe from Jacques Pepin. And, maybe some spring peas? But, I have no clue about dessert…

    ha! too funny we both blogged about Currents today and we’re both in love with The Tsar of Love and Techno (I still have about 1/3 of the book to go) and journaling. and nice weather. your journal is way more photogenic than mine. I use markers, and I’m pretty messy. Maybe I’ll try colored pencils and being a bit more light-hearted. happy spring and all that :-)

    I started meditating in late December and can’t believe how it’s improved my well being!! Funny how little changes can be big!

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about The Tsar of Love and Techno! I listened to H Is for Hawk last month, and it is SO GOOD, isn’t it?
