I've always loved Elise Blaha Cripe's posts called Currently. They're a quick and easy way to get a little glimpse into life at that very moment. Here's my version.
Lately we've been...
walking outside again to get from our kitchen to our bedrooms as we wait for the tile to set.
crawling into bed by 9 pm. It's my new self-imposed bedtime and I must be in bed. I can read as late as I want, but I must be in bed.
cheering for Elsie as she walks across the room pushing her grocery cart. She's so, so proud. And we are too!
loving a sweet little 2nd grader as she spends a few nights with us.
finishing Rory's office in the woods: installing a little wood burning stove, finishing the siding.
drinking a morning cup of coffee. This is still pretty new for me. And one of the new joys of my life.
swatting lots of flies when Ivar is out of the room. "No, don't hit him! He is nice! He is a nice fly!"
watching the workers. Ivar is in love with our contractors, Mike and Tom. The rest of us are too. Their work is quality, they are hard workers and easy company to have in our home. I am so grateful for them.
marveling at how our kids sleep through the nail guns, circular saws and hammering.
picking up Beth Moore's Jesus the One and Only for the umpteenth time. If you're looking for a personal devotional workbook, I recommend this one with my whole heart. It takes about fifteen minutes and day and always leaves me feeling filled up and grateful I took the time.
comforting Ivar in the night after bad dreams.
planning our trips through Menards so as to avoid the Halloween displays. They are terrifying. When did Halloween become so terrifying? I miss the animated ghosts and happy pumpkins and this new level of scary is really awful.
laughing through season one of Arrested Development. Thank you library for having this dvd set in the mix.
reading How to Cook without a Book. Wish this book had been our home economics text book.
eating fanny farmer chocolate bars I purchased from Mara and Sonna. What a delicious way to support my nieces and their school.
listening to Rory comfort Ivar, "oh Ivar, that is such a scary feeling. you hit your solar plexus. that means you got the wind knocked out of you, and you couldn't breathe. your solar plexus is right here, see?"
