these days

  Can you spot the voodoo doll of love?

Can you spot the voodoo doll of love?

I mentioned last week that I was loving Christina's "Around here, lately" posts, as well as Bobbi's "Currently" posts.  So I thought I'd give it a whirl.

listening...

... to Alex practice her guitar.  She's been learning "Let It Go," and while I live the rest of my life very happily if I never heard Idina Menzel sing that song again, there's something quite sweet about hearing Alex play it from the other room.  Also?  She's become quite passionate about her guitar -- I've never had to tell her to go practice, not once, but she does it without fail anyway, every single day.  She's determined to master it, and it's so great to see her working so hard at something she loves.

watching ...

... all the twinkle lights in our house right now.  I might be a twinkle light addict.  I have twinkle lights up in my office all year long anyway, but come Christmastime, I lose my mind:  I have twinkle lights are up everywhere.  Mark my words:  twinkle lights make everything better.

 

reading ...

...  To Rise Again At A Decent Hour.  HIGHLY weird book, about an anti-social dentist and a stalker.  But I actually think I like it.  I think.

 

working on ...

... a new e-course!  Hoping to launch at the beginning of the year.  Stay tuned.

enjoying ...

... Marcus' cooking (he's always a good cook -- I'm always telling him I'd have married him for his cooking alone -- but lately, his creations have been amazing), a return to my journal, and the new JohnnySwim Christmas album.  It's quiet and moody and beautiful, and perfect for getting into the Christmas spirit.

 

looking forward to ...

Seeing family we haven't seen for a while, celebrating Christmas, and winding down 2014.  

 

What about you -- what's going on in your world these days?

 

Song:  A Christmas Waltz, as performed by JohnnySwim.  A little preview before you buy the album.
