December 2019: Currently

Currently is a new (to me) feature – hosted by In Residence. I can’t see that I’ll have a book review anytime soon 😜 so I decided to join in this link up since I enjoy reading it on Shooting Stars Mag and My Pixie Blog every month.



Wrapping: All my Christmas gifts. I finished all my shopping by Cyber Monday (except for Kevin). My assistant is not very helpful – he fell asleep on the job and then walked all over everything when he woke up lol


Baking: Nothing yet. I made ginger molasses cookies last month and Kevin asked me to make more so maybe those and then something new. Do you have a favorite holiday treat you like to bake or eat?

Lighting: The tree. This is the first tree we’ve had in almost 30 years so it’s been fun to decorate that and a little bit of the outside of our new house.

And almost my face – we have a gas stove now and I’m not quite used to lighting it and almost burned my eyebrows off!

Sending: Everything I wrapped has to be mailed and I’m excited that my new town has a very small local post office so no big crowds or lines for me!

Enjoying: Getting settled in the new house.

Discovering so many small, local coffee/donut shops. All of them have books and comfy chairs/couches/fireplaces that really encourage you to sit and relax a while.

Cider with caramel while walking along the waterfront down the street from my house.

A massage with my new therapist who is so nice and manages to work out all my aches and pains.

Beautiful sunsets that I can see right from my living room.


What are you enjoying this December?
