Currently... (Vol. 35)

Disbelieving...  how fast Christmas Break, December, and 2018 (for that matter) went by.

Hoping...  that 2019 brings a little less precipitation.

Not kidding...  about how wet it was last year.  2018 officially became the wettest year on record for Louisville, KY.  Last year we received 68.05 inches.

Refraining...  from participating in the 2019 Goodreads Reading Challenge.  Once upon a time, it motivated and challenged me.  Last year, however, it just flat-out annoyed me.  I know I'm in a reading slump and I don't need to be reminded of it every time I log a book on Goodreads.

Thankful...  for the much needed time off from work and for the opportunity to rest, be silent, get my house back in order after the master bedroom hardwood instillation, and visit with family.

Annoyed...  by the recent barrage of online "romance scammers" who have sent me requests to play on Words with Friends.  Seriously, I received almost a dozen new game requests in 36 hours.  One guy, I kid you not, "fell in love with me" over the course of four days and on the fifth day hit me up for $50.  LOL! Once I told him I was broke and that I couldn't help him, he disappeared like a fart in the wind!  

Changing...  my settings on Words with Friends and Yahtzee so that new people cannot send me game requests.

Reading Listening...  to the audiobook Captured by a Laird by Margaret Mallory.  Yeah, I'm kinda in a "guy in a kilt" reading mood at the moment.

Reading...  old issues of Glamour, Health, and National Geographic, all magazines that my husband and I somehow started receiving for free, that I've let pile up.

Hating...  that I had to break down and buy myself some readers last month.

Watching...  The Masked Singer on FOX.  I'm not typically one for singing shows, but so far I like this one.

Not watching...  Bird Box.  Ol' girl here doesn't do horror flicks.

Continuing...  to declutter my house.  I swear, this is a never-ending task.

Dreading...  the perpetual gray, dismal, bleak winter days that lie ahead.  The past three days have offered no view of the sun at all.

Laughing...  at this:

Agreeing...  with this:

December in a Snapshot:

1) Watching A Christmas Story: The Musical, new mattress, new hardwood.
2) Making candy cane ornaments at school, my tree, new slippers.
3) Baking cookies for R, filling out Christmas cards on 12/22 (better late than never, right?),
view from my folks' deck.

What have you been up to lately?  Have a good holiday?  May 2019 bring you much happiness and good health!

Linking up with:


  1. Hoping 2019 is not so wet either but not yet rained every day this year. What no pic of the cheaters lol

    1. Cheaters! Well, let's just say that the whole wide world doesn't need to see that! LOL!

  2. I'm laughing at your Bird Box and disappearing "like a fart in the wind" LOL! I forgot I wanted to watch The Masked Singer, the previews looked really funny. The new floors look great. Hope 2019 is drier in your area!

    1. LOL! He did! I mean, it was like "in the blink of an eye" fast! LOL! Thank you! Although I miss the softness and warmth of carpet, I am enjoying the look of the hardwood and how easy it is to clean.

  3. This is my year of decluttering.

    I hope 2019 is drier here too.

    1. From what I've read, decluttering is high on many people's lists this year. We are in good company!

  4. I can't even begin to understand why everyone is watching Bird Box. I didn't and likely won't.

    1. I've never been one for horror movies. I just don't like the feeling of being scared like a lot of people (obviously) do. There's a part of me that is curious to see what all the hype is about, but I'm not so curious to subject myself to that.

  5. 2018 definitely flew by. We watched The Masked Singer the other night. It makes us a little crazy, but I'll admit I'm intrigued. Your Chick-fil-a pic made me hungryyyyy for some. Dang it. I can't believe the romance scammers on Words With Friends! That's insane!

  6. I really loved the book, Bird Box, so I'll watch the movie, but I'm a bit afraid it's going to really freak me out. LOL I think that watching things is sometimes creepier for me than reading about them. I'm glad you had a nice Christmas though!


  7. lol @ it rained. so far, 2019 seems as rainy though today the sun is out. woo! i'm always in a guy-in-a-kilt mood so i'll check that one out. that's so weird about the people on words with friends. creepy! i watched bird box but only because i read and enjoyed the book so i knew it wouldn't be too scary. i don't do scary!

  8. The Go Fund Me meme made me laugh :)
