I found this idea at Meet Me at Mikes. Every once in a while, the blogger there will do a "taking stock" post where she uses a set list of verbs to describe what she's doing in her life right now. I thought it looked really cool, so I'm giving it a shot!
Hoping: for more free time to write, seriously
Marveling: at how God got me through all the crap I've had to deal
Smelling: my recently cleaned room
Wearing: a jewel green cowl neck sweater, black pants, and Converse
with rainbow hearts on them
Following: Kaye on Twitter! She teaches me so much
Noticing: how much better life is now that my OCD is under control
Knowing: that soon I'll be back on track with driving and playing cello
Thinking: about the progress I've made
Feeling: thoughtful, mostly.
Admiring: the three large stacks of library books by my bed.
Sorting: through said library books--I like to alternate genres as I read
to keep things fresh
Buying: food, mostly: salads, microwave macaroni
Getting: new books from giveaways! Yay!
Bookmarking: the blogs I follow on my new laptop
Disliking: that our other cat Zoey really injured Spartacus
this last week :(
Opening: the covers of lots of new books
Giggling: at Spartacus's "Halloween Cat" impression
Making: my brother happy by playing video games with
Eating: pre-made ham sandwich squares from Smith's
Drinking: Sparkling Ice in kiwi strawberry
Reading: For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway
Writing: SAMMI, in what little free time I have, though I'm struggling with where to end it
Editing: THE PROPHECY KEEPER, next in my queue
Looking: for the next novel that catches my heart
Playing: primarily Paper Mario, again, with my brother
Deciding: on how best to forgive people who injure me
Enjoying: lots of new YA books
Waiting: for the next email from my BFF
Liking: how things are improving for my family
Wondering: where to end SAMMI in a way that's natural and conclusive; also, if I should retitle it
Loving: my beautiful kitty Spartacus
Pondering: where the line is between forgiveness and letting people walk on you
Watching: a bunch of movies in my queue with my other brother
That's my update for right now! Do you like this format? I think I do. Thanks for reading and I'll see you next time for February's TCWT blog chain!
