I thought a weekly (or so...) "Currently" post would be fun!
Doing: This! Blogging! Hi! Also, trying to figure out where to start in Thanksgiving organization. I'm honestly pretty overwhelmed with all that I have to do. It's the Monday before Thanksgiving and I haven't even gone shopping yet... And I'm hosting! I have a lot to do... But here I am blogging and working instead. HA.
Watching: THE PUNISHER. It's finally out. I had no idea, because as far as I could tell, there was no official release date. I saw a friend mention it on Facebook yesterday and pretty much forgot about it. Then last night, my husband and I were looking for something on TV, and I was like, "Oh my gosh, I think we have the punisher!" We checked and sure enough. We watched 3 episodes and stayed up until 1 a.m. haha! It's SO good so far. This actor, I mean dang, he was born to be the punisher. I'm really excited about the writing so far. Very good.
Planning: SIGH... So much. Planning my doula work schedule and how that works into my day job. Planning Thanksgiving and the cooking and cleaning schedule. Loosely making Summer plans. I know we'd like to travel, but it's hard to nail down those plans for the future when the day-to-day is so packed. We're getting there though.
Thinking about: Thinking a lot about how I show up for the people in my life. Being an introvert I can get very inward focused and analyze my every thought and feeling-- but I'm reminded lately to take a moment and look outside myself to how I'm showing up for the people in my life that I love. It's not always easy to be honest with yourself and take an objective look at what you need to improve on. But here I am, not perfect, work in progress, and trying to always be better.
Listening to: I'm 100% obsessed with Gregory Alan Isakov right now. To the point where just his melodies have made me cry. Tears of joy and tears of sorrow. It's been so long since music has done that for me that now I just can't stop listening. I actually put in earphones and listened to his newest album while I was being tattooed recently and don't call me a stupid snowflake- but it was a downright spiritual experience, one I will never forget. If you haven't heard of him, check him out, especially his new symphony callaborations.
Looking forward to: My kiddos get a break from school later this week and I'm looking forward to some quality time with them. I'm also looking forward to cooking with my husband for Thanksgiving. As much as he will let me. He told me this morning I can cook the salad *EYEROLL* Um no, I'm getting in on that show-off cooking action too!
Loving: I never ever thought I'd say this, but I'm kind of loving the chill in the air. It's crisp and cool and it feels good to my skin, and lungs, and soul. Something about everything settling away and everyone nuzzling in is cozy and nice and comforting. I've never been a big holiday person but I'm coming around.
So, how about you? What are you up to today?
