Currents | December 2014. traditions and making lists!

Loving: twinkle lights.

Embracing: new holiday traditions (Sara's moved away, Katie has her own family, a new baby... it's time!)

Reading: Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen. I'm about halfway through it, and sadly, it's at best a 3-star book for me. I can only hope the second half is better! I did, however, just finish what might be my favorite book of 2014, David Mitchell's Bone Clocks. It was amazing.

Laughing: out loud while listening to Cabin Pressure (thank you, Bonny, for the recommendation!)

Listening: to the Serial podcast (well, not anymore I guess, until Season 2) and Spotify Radio.

Splurging: on wine clubs. This fall, I've teamed up with Katie, my sister and another friend to join three new clubs, all shipping wonderful reds from Paso Robles.

Craving: pizza (ha! if I'd posted this yesterday morning like I'd planned, this was it - but Marc took pity on me and we had pizza for dinner last night). in a completely different vein, now I'm craving an epic, meditative knit. I'm thinking about the Churchmouse Two-tone Twill Scarf, following the suggested modifications to knit a tone-on-tone square in lace-weight.

Hoping: I can get a photo of me and Marc to send out New Year's cards.

Planning: one thing for 2015... I just need to figure out what it will be!

Wearing: cowls and hats.

Knitting: Ondawa for Katie. planning to start Deephaven for myself (a KAL with Katie) this weekend. also house socks for the girls.

Enjoying: planning menus. making lists.

Remembering: Christmases past.

Anticipating: Sara's arrival on Wednesday ... and Charlie's first Christmas.

I'm going to start jotting down some ideas of what I might be able to do every day! Well, knit or read every day. But that is simple - LOL~ and something I already to every day. So I need to think of something a bit harder - but not too hard!

Great list, especially the "planning ONE thing for 2015" entry. Can't wait to see what that will be! And I'd love to know how you get to ONE! TBC, I'm sure.

I don't know how far you've gotten with Cabin Pressure, but I want to let you know that they just broadcast the last episode (Zurich) on BBC radio on 12/23 and 24. It's available here for another 3 weeks and hopefully it will be also be available on Audible soon. I haven't listened yet myself but am hoping for an uninterrupted hour soon!
