Some of my favorite bloggers periodically do a “currently” post, and I love the idea of it. I think it captures some of the small everyday things that might otherwise be lost in the tide of blog-worthiness, however that is measured. So, here goes. This is what I’m doing, currently.
Reading Murakami’s 1Q84 (finally) and feeling totally riveted.
Trying to decide on Thanksgiving side dishes (it’s all about the vegetables!). Do I have it in me to make Thomas Keller’s leek bread pudding?
Scheming about getting a Christmas tree early this week, since we’ll be out of town for Christmas. Cannot wait to inundate the house with pine scent!
Enjoying all the goodies Eric’s parents just sent us in a care package. Spice cookies! Pumpkin placemats! Pistachios!
Listening to this song over and over again, because it is just such happy music.
Working on some secret Christmas presents.
Playing Letter Press like crazy. Even though I usually lose.
Spending a lot of time on the couch under the blanket I just finished knitting.
Knocking out some of my November goals and feeling awesome about it.
Looking forward to seeing my Dad in early December.
Feeling very, very grateful.
