Lately I’ve been Loving…

1. Afternoon Walks

It’s that time of year when the nights are getting cooler, but the days are still moderately warm. Unfortunately this warmth takes a while to make its way inside. So recently my husband and I have enjoyed getting outside for a pleasant afternoon walk in the sunshine to escape the chill of our house. It’s a great motivator to get some exercise and fresh air.

Struggling to Read

I have read 20 books so far this year, which is a quarter of my goal. That sounds pretty good, and Goodreads tells me that’s only 2 books behind schedule. But I feel like it has been hard going. There have been a few books I have borrowed from the library, only to return them unread (or barely read). I have scoured my bookshelves and felt uninspired.

The Joy of Singing

If you know me in person you probably know that I love to sing. I can’t help it. I sing in the shower. In the car. In bed. While doing housework. I sing about what I’m doing. I sing whatever song happens to be stuck in my head (often it’s the same songs day after day).

A Day at Home

It’s been about 6 weeks since I left my job. This is something I had been thinking about for a while, and once the decision was made one of the things I was most looking forward to was having more time to devote to blogging. Well, it’s taken me some time, but I suddenly felt inspired to just write. I’m not quite sure where this blog is heading. But now that I am back hopefully it will get easier to just share whatever is on my mind.

This blog is one year old! In that time I’ve written 50 posts (should be 51 but I’ve been neglecting my latest reading wrap up. It’s coming…). That’s about one a week, which I am pretty proud of, though there hasn’t been so much happening lately. It’s interesting to reflect on all of life over the past year. I finished my diploma (which feels like ages ago), I’ve gotten involved in new ministries, I’ve spent hours and hours looking after children, and read a whole lot of wonderful books. Read More »

An Arm-Full of Books

Today I was the girl walking home from the library with eight books bundled under my right arm. It sounds awkward, but I coped. I didn’t even bother stopping when my shoelace became undone halfway through the trip. The sun was shining and I was happy with all the new books waiting to be read.Read More »
