Currently In ... February

Reading: I'm reading 2 books at the moment.  Beowulf is slow going as I'm reading it in short busts at lunch times.  The language requires a lot of concentration, but it's something I've been wanting to read for a while.  A Killer Crop by Sheila Connolly is a cosy mystery in a series that I enjoy.  The light fiction is a perfect read after some translated Old English epic poetry!  I'm particularly enjoying this one as it is set during apple harvest season and I love reading about the autumnal colours.

Watching: Like the rest of the world, I'm watching the Olympics.  I'm also catching up on Elementary.  I previously watched up to season 3 and have binge watched half of season 4 so far.  I'm clearly in the mood for cosy mysteries!  I recently bought the complete series of Gilmore Girls second hand, so that will be due a rewatch sometime soon.

Feeling: Definitely feeling the benefits of regular stretching.  I've added in clams, calf raises and squats to my Stretch and Strength Mondays and so far I'm running pain free - yippee!

Thinking: Maybe I should have a go at writing a cosy mystery?

Anticipating: I'm so excited for our anniversary holiday to China.  We picked up our visas earlier this week *squee*

Listening to: In the car, it's learn Mandarin in 40 minutes - Its a lie, it's taking way longer than 40 minutes. At home, I've been listening to a lot of Moby on Spotify recently.

Planning: I'm now planning my next knitting project.  I've finished with the bandana cowl and I'm ready to start something new, I just don't know what yet - time to visit Ravelry and indulge in photos of gorgeous creations.

Working: I am Decluttering all the things! I have got rid of so much stuff it's unreal.  We used to live in such a small place that we had to be ruthless and discerning about what we keep, but since moving to a house it has become a magnet for clutter.

Wanting: I'd like to do something fun outside of the house this weekend but I don't know what yet.

Needing: I need to reboot my morning and night-time routines.  I've gotten a bit lazy of late and I think I need to institute a tech free hour right after I wake and before I go to sleep.

Grateful: So grateful for my beautiful life.  Just the other day, after Kane and I had arrived home for the day and as I was turning the key to my house, I was swallowed up by the beautiful feeling of luck and gratitude for all that I have.

Wishing: Really wishing my cats would stop bringing bugs into the house.  They don't kill the bugs, they just bring them in to play with them and then Kane and I have to keep the cats out of the way while escorting the bug back outside.  Cicadas and Mantid are current favourites.

  1. I have become a fan of cozy mysteries as well! I'm slowly working my way through Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series. I just picked up book 3 from the library tomorrow so will start that when I finish the book I am currently reading. Kudos to you for taking on beowulf. I had to read that in HS and I remember HATING it!! :P

    Your trip to China is going to be amazing!!
