What’s Going On in January


thinking - I’m been thinking a lot lately on my future. What I really want out of life and how to accomplish these goals. And trying to figure out the necessary steps I will have to reach my dream. 

watching - the moon. It’s memorizing kinda like a running stream…I could stare at it for hours. After I feed in the evenings I’ve been enjoying just standing out under the chilly night sky full of stars and just gazing at that beautiful moon.

eating - a lot of grits! Call me crazy but I crave them just about every morning. Except I’m weird and don’t eat them like normal people do…I put coconut and raisins on mine=) And they are WONderful!!!!!

listening to - this song sung by Mark Schultz. I don’t know why but when I get hooked on a song I listen to it over and over again….and then all of a sudden I’m tired of it and don’t listen to it again.

reading - I’ve been reading Jesus on Trail by David Limbaugh and I love it!!!!!!! Also I just started The Bailey Flanigan Series by Karen Kingsbury. Something not so deep for my “right before I fall asleep” reading. I like them so far.

making  - I’m finally putting together a scrapbook from my cruise to the Bahamas. And I’m realizing again how much I LOVE to  scrapbook and of course I just made my amazing pie.

wearing - my slouchy beanie…a lot…covers any bad hair day and with my first of the year haircut (including straight across bangs) I need something to just slide over it all. BTW having these bangs cut was a VERY bad decision and I can’t wait till they grow out.

needing - tons of Carmex lip blam!!!! This weather and my outdoor jobs make me keep some of this with me at all time. I have a tube in my car, on my night shelf, on my desk at work, in my purse and in the pocket of my coat.

wishing - for snow!!!! Lots of snow…to cover up all the ugliness of winter mud. In my option if it’s going to be cold we might as well have snow=)

feeling - very cold lately. I seriously can’t seem to stay warm. After I work out I’m warm for about a half an hour then I just pile the layers on. My office is always like 76 degrees and I’m still cold. My poor boss is always smoldering=(

loving - my new NIV Bible! First time I’ve read anything other than the KJV and it’s like reading it for the first time!

wanting - time to go a bit faster so I get to see my brother in Tennessee sooner!!!!!! I talked to him on the phone last night and gosh I miss that kid so much.

So what about all of you??? what have you been up to lately?

  1. Now thats a list for sure. But looks like you have a lot of things going for you. But grits with coconut and raisins??? UGH! nasty! I guess I grew up with grits and now I just cant eat them like I use to. Have you tried fried grits???

    1. Haha told you it's crazy...but I love it that way=) I've never tried them fried...hopefully I can soon. Do you let them cool in the fridge before doing this?

    2. You can buy in the stores called corn mush in a roll. Its the same thing as grits. But just make your grits thick and put into patties. then fry in butter and then top with syrup or honey or molasses

  2. This was a fun blog post to read! I love grits :)
