Currently...A Life List

Please be sure to click the image below and visit with Paula. Tell her that Suz sent you. :)


Looking out my window...It is dark as I write this, but it will soon be sunrise on what is supposed to be a sunny day. We’ll see how that goes.

As I ponder....
I am pondering what we’ll actually get done today. I want to go to the Presbyterian flower field to practice using the reverse lens mounting thingy, but I also would rather not leave the house. I don’t want to waste a sunny day indoors, though!

What I’m learning...
I can’t think of anything that I’m learning fresh and new at the moment, but there are constant reminders of old lessons learned, one being about how cruel people can be to each other. Something that I’ve read recently is keeping me on the verge of nightmares just thinking of someone doing something so horrible to another living being. Be nice, people! If you don’t want someone doing it to you, don’t do it to anybody yourself!

What I’m creating...I am mostly creating more picture files right now. The flower garden afghan is on hold while I work on reading the books for the reviews I’ve agreed to do.

What I’m reading...
I am still reading Helen by Anita Mishook. It is a very interesting story. I am also reading Beastia by Zoe Cruz. Reviews for them will be posted during the next month. All I can say about Beastia at the moment is…WOW!

What I’m watching...
I am watching Petra wander around the room as well as trying to convince David to pick her up.

What I’m hearing...
I am hearing the whine of the air conditioner. Yes, it is 47 degrees and we have the air conditioner on. I can’t bear it to be off!

What I’m drinking...Diet Coke and water. Not together, mind you.

What’s happening in the kitchen...
I cooked chicken in the crockpot and it is cooling off so that I can put it into the refrigerator. We’ll have chicken and rice as well as chicken salad sandwiches and enchiladas (maybe) using this chicken during the week.

A quote I want to share...

Happenings in my backyard...We bought two tomato plants from Tractor Supply a week or so ago. We figured the only way we’d ever get tomatoes, aside from buying them in the produce department, is to buy a plant with tomatoes already on it. One of these plants had two decent-sized ones on it already. We figured those would be the only two we got out of the deal. Well, now between the two plants there are six tomatoes! Two little bitty ones are on the plant that had the two to start with and two are on the other plant. I saw the little bitty ones before I saw any on the other plant, but those new ones on the other plant are growing much faster than the newest ones on the plant that came with two already.

Also, we got a new bird feeder. We used to have a ton of them out there and kept them stocked. Finances and yard-interferers got in the way, and I just stopped fooling with them. I’ve missed it very much, though! We used to have a family of cardinals here and they were fun to watch. I hope the birds will come back. I have yet to see any evidence of them at this new feeder.

A peek into my week...

The rest of this week is “no have tos” and I am glad of that! Our appointments are done for the week.  All that is left is to go out and find flowers to photograph or to just stay home and chill, our choice. YAY!

A final thought...
Well, I finally have an appointment with an ophthalmologist to discuss my cataract situation. The appointment is March 30. Prayers are much appreciated!

Have a blessed day, y'all. :)

    1. Thanks, Barbara. I appreciate the prayers very much. While most of the time I try not to think about it, when I do, it makes me sick to my stomach. I don't do well with the unknown or with changes and this situation is loaded with both.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed day. :)

  2. I read this on my phone and tried to comment and it wouldn't let me. Then I forgot to come over and respond. Glad you showed up today in my reader!!

    1. Thanks, Paula. I'm glad you came back. :) I have the WordPress app and I can't seem to get anything figured out on it. Trying to use the Internet on my phone is frustrating at best. It's too little for me to read most of the time anyway.

      Thanks for stopping back by and commenting. Have a blessed day!
