Life: It Goes On - January 5

Happy New Year! Hope you all kicked off the year in great fashion, or at least better fashion than we did. Miss H brought home a flu bug at the beginning of the week and that's how BG and I kicked off the New Year. Whoopie!

On New Year's Day I saw a man named Jon Gordon talking about choosing one word for 2014 that will give meaning and purpose to your life rather than setting resolutions. I love this idea! My word is going to be "self." My goal in 2014 is to improve myself physically, emotionally, and intellectually. It's about being around for the long haul, being happy, and keeping my mind alert. What word would you choose and why?

Here's What I'm:

Listening To: Jean Webster's Daddy Long Legs which I downloaded to my phone from Librivox. It's one of the books on my Classics Club Challenge list. I read the book as a young girl and remember liking it. But I'm more familiar now with the Fred Astaire/Leslie Caron musical adaptation.

Watching: Oh so much football!

Reading: Life of Pi after loving the movie so much and Possession as part of a Goodread readalong. I did just download Outlander to my Nook, thanks to Trish who pointed out that I could get it for $1.99 and Tampa by Alyssa Nutting - so much for trying to read more of the books on my shelf without adding too many more!

Wish this were my pantry!

Making: As you might imagine, nothing much more than toast.

Planning: On a kitchen reorganization. As part of my efforts to become healthier, my diet needs to change. I'm not going to do away with goodies entirely, but I need to make it easier to grab healthy options.

Grateful for: Sprite, blankets, and ibuprofen - yeah, it's been that kind of week.

Feeling: Happy to have everyone healthy again and the house all sterilized.

Thinking: This is the first year in decades that I have not been eager to get my holiday decorations down. There's a coziness to them that I miss when I take them down.

Looking forward to: Staying in the moment this week and getting back to a routine.
