I'm Currently Enjoying...

  • Google Reader.  Where have you been all my life?!  I've subscribed to all my favorite blogs (even those of you who haven't posted anything for nearly two years--you know who you are).  I'm saving sooooo much time now that I don't need to click on your URL only to find out that there's nothing new that I have time for posting on my own blog.  You know you were wondering where I find the time...
  • Netflix.  Through the mail DVDs or Watch Instantly.  I've never seen so many movies in such a short time in my whole entire life (including high school when we'd watch anything, remember?)--blockbusters, foreign language, Pixar, TV series, classics, tearjerkers, adventure.  The best ones recently:  Julie and Julia (Meryl Streep is amazing in anything!), and a little one titled Outsourced.  I can never predict what I'll merely like, what I'll enjoy and what I'll absolutely love.
  • Ironing new fabric--with a Netflix movie (Watch Instantly) on in the background.  I had no idea that Lord Byron was such a bad boy!
  • Longer days.  All the clouds and rain are more reminiscent of a northern California February replete with green hills and newborn lambs than a wintery northern Nevada January.  We have no verdure and no lambie pies, alas, but it smells like spring.
  • A three day week, thanks to the flu. On the other hand...
  • Being healthy and going to work.  It sure beats aches and lethargy.
  • A January devoted to as many arts and crafts as I can jam in.  I'm leaving no room for any post-holiday letdown or depression.
  • Creamy white paint warm enough to use.
  • A first coat on my cottage sign.


  1. I honestly don't know what I would do without Google Reader. It is certainly a time saver. Only problem are those blogs I read that are private, they won't pop up. but having to go to each site is significantly quicker. Now if they could just come up with a way to comment with having to click on the post that would be incredible!

    I am still pondering what to tell you to make for me. I haven't forgotten! And money is very tight right now so I am limited in what I can send. :)

  2. If its google reader that is maintaining the links on the side - it isn't updating my site properly ;).
