I’m taking a fun class through Big Picture Classes right now led by the amazing Ali Edwards. It is called 31 Things and each day Ali shares a writing and photo prompt. A few days ago the prompt was titled “You”. I thought it was a fun one to turn in to a blog post…
Age: 40 (for two more months!)
Favorite part of my day: I love when everyone is home from school and all their various activities. Dinner, homework and showers are done and we all snuggle in Katherine’s bed to read. If the girls still need to finish their reading for school, Katherine is currently reading her way through the Heidi Hecklebeck series and Caroline is reading anything by Sharon Creech that she can get her hands on and I am having a love-hate relationship with The Goldfinch. If all the school reading is done, we are reading the Lauren Child version of Pippi Longstocking. If you haven’t seen this book, make sure to check it out. The illustrations are so great.
Loving: A new cookbook, Keepers. I have made a bunch of the recipes and so far, they really are ‘keepers’.
Longing for: Spring!! Fine. The snow on the trees right now looks gorgeous but enough already. We are forecasted to have 6 to 10 more inches tomorrow followed by a coat of ice and then a storm on Sunday into Monday that may be measured in feet, not inches. Enough.
Dreaming of: Warmth. I really can not get warm in this crazy weather. I am wearing fleece lined leggings and wool socks and I just can’t shake it.
Needing: To get caught up with Scandal. As many of my readers know, I am obsessed. I really need to get caught up so I can return to my regularly scheduled life.
Navigating: My relationship with social media. I am dabbling in so many different places right now and there are things I love about each site. Trying to figure out where to really put my time.
Knowing: That daily writing is really important for my mental health.
