Right now I'm sitting in my kitchen with the overhead lights on because it is tipping down rain outside. Oh my, another dreary day. This winter seems to be the winter of dreariness. Lucky for me I like to be indoors and knit away. I've noticed that the days are getting longer and the light is changing it's angle during the day. Spring is slowly slowly approaching. Slowly.
Right now I'm dressed for the gym but the rain is making me wonder if I really want to go outside. I probably will. It's good for me.
Right now I'm admiring the books I picked up at our local library book sale. All the Penny books are for my sister in law who is collecting them. I have all of them on my Kindle and read them on the treadmill, what excellent company to be in when I'm visiting Three Pines! The top three books are for my mother in law. That leaves the pile on the right that is all mine. It was a great sale.
Right now I'm thinking about the elderly man at the book sale telling me all about how he doesn't own a computer, a cell phone and a credit card. He was standing there with a paper notebook checking his lists. (I was using my iphone checking my goodreads). I'm not sure who was more efficient but I admired his 'unpluggedness' and happiness about it.
Right now I'm basking in how much I crossed off my to do list this week. I had some lingering continuing ed that I finally sat down and completed (and passed). My prayer list was mighty long and some prayers were answered and so those can be set aside as well.
Right now I'm excited to start the second sleeve of my purple sweater hopefully this afternoon. I'm knitting for myself for the rest of the month and possibly going into March.
Right now I'm thinking about Frodo and Holly. Our house has been mostly quiet and they seem to have a rhythm to their days. Once in a while Holly will come into the family room to sit and Frodo will try his best not to be obsessed. He is tenacious and that is what I love the most about him. He always sees the glass half full.
Holly understands all of Frodo's barks. His silly barking when he thinks there is someone there and isn't. Then there is the bark of 'alert! someone is here'. Holly hides until that someone leaves. Animals are so very smart.
In the photo below I asked Frodo 'where's Holly?'. He is looking up at her cat tree (she isn't there, it was a ploy to get a good photo). Isn't he a darling?
What is your Right Now?
