I am currently…
Baking: shortbread! I got a GREAT deal on some mini cookie cutters at World Market just before Easter, and I knew I just HAD to make shortbread to take to our family Easter gathering! They turned out so stinking cute!
Listening to: Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. I think I should have read this book instead of listening to it. I didn’t love it, and I think it might have been because (1) I missed that the first part was a prologue. That really muddied the waters. And (2) I wasn’t aware that the author re-imagined a lot of the story. I just kept feeling like I missed chunks of the story. Maybe it’s a bit disjointed, or maybe I just wasn’t listening well enough. Did YOU read it? What did YOU think about it?
Loving: exploring new places. I arrived in Alaska yesterday and am just gobsmacked by the beautiful mountains and rivers! Oh my word!
Planting: these little feathery cuties called celosia! I meant to stagger them in a circle shape, but I forgot the stagger part! I planted them in a lovely circle around our bottle brush tree and then, like, three days later I noticed that I hadn’t staggered them. Now they look like little druid flowers dancing their little druid dance around our tree! They make me chuckle every time I see them!
Remembering: how important my bullet journal is to my productivity. The last few weeks I’ve had to really buckle down and get a LOT of stuff done to get ready for some of my homeschool conventions and vacation. I didn’t want to get panicky over all that had to happen, so I asked God to help me focus and used my bullet journal to track my massive To Do lists. You know what? I got a TON done, all the important stuff and the vast majority of the less important stuff. I was able to work through my lists and hit the road with a calm heart and mind. I’m so thankful!
Let me know what YOU are currently baking, listening to, loving, planting, and remembering by leaving a comment! I’d love to hear from you!
