It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here. I feel like I’ve started at least half a dozen posts with a sentence like that. I almost apologized but decided it’s not really something to feel bad about. So there’s that out of the way.
I feel like I’m behind in the entire race of life at the moment. A lot has happened since my last “Currently” post so in the spirit of my September resolution to “call it all current and move forward” here is a wrap up since the last time I wrote.
This is what June through August looked like:
Anticipating: the arrival of my nephew, Harrison Jerome Grant, on June 22nd, visiting Vermont family in late June/early July, my 3rd foot surgery on July 19th, and walking again for the whole month of August.
Being: okay with saying “yes” when help is offered.
Compiling: lists of things I want to make for and do with my niece, nephew & baby cousin.
Drinking: as many Slurpees as people would bring me.
Embracing: the wheelchair. It makes life much easier around the house!
Focusing: on all the blessings.
Grateful: for family visits in Vermont and more family time in Melbourne for recovery.
Happy: that more than half my plants have survived all the neglect they’ve been receiving.
Ignoring: the days/hours/minutes since my floor was last mopped.
Juggling: too many creative ideas, and having to let a few drop off the map for now.
Knitting: and ripping apart, then recasting in a different pattern, a baby blanket for ???
Listening: to Imagine Dragons.
Making: plans for the rest of the year.
Noticing: the perfection that is the evening light through my glass doors.
Obsessing: over budget and money.
Proud: of the new collection of prints I added to my Etsy site: OneThreadThatWinds.
Quitting: the guilt game.
Reading: Under the Dome by Stephen King.
Sitting: a LOT.
Thinking: about God’s grace and trustworthiness.
Using: lots of candles.
Visualizing: walking walking walking.
Watching: Falling Skies, Under the Dome.
X-ing: loads of things off my work to-do list.
Yearning: for that first cool breeze of Fall… should feel it in January sometime.
Zooming: through this year! HOLY COW IT’S SEPTEMBER!!!!!!
