currently… {november 2015}featured

anticipating | thanksgiving. everything about it — eating, shopping, hanging out at my grandparents’. hopefully onyx doesn’t pull an onyx this year. (we are prepared with her new radio tracker collar just in case.)

listening | collabro. spotify suggested i listen to them and i’m just so delighted. like one direction (i.e., british boy band that won britain’s got talent) singing ballad-y show tunes and pop covers.

drinking | gingerbread lattes. mmm. christmas in a cup.

plotting | ways to kill the fucking squirrel that keeps taunting onyx. don’t worry, i won’t go through with it, but my GOD that thing drives me crazy because onyx keeps trampling the plants when it sits in the tree over our patio.

loving | super lazy weekends with entertainment provided by redbox.

planning | a better blog editorial calendar (take 3).

writing | well, i’m trying.

hoping | for a white christmas. and lots of fresh pow to shred on the slopes. (don’t get the wrong idea, i talk a lot harder than i snowboard.)

thinking | about how i want to wrap up the year and what goals and resolutions i should make for 2016.

bookmarking/tweeting/pinning/saving | this ironic update. this challenge. these thoughts on melancholy. this brilliant life advice. these thoughts on social media. this writing anti-advice. these cookies. this book of the month club (if anyone wants to get me a christmas gift…) these brookies.


  • A better blog editorial calendar… I know that feeling! I actually scheduled a post all about trying to organize. I’ve gone with just using Google calendar and it’s really helped. I think I’m also realizing planning is a great thing, but eventually I fall off! 😀

    • Right now I use a combination of Evernote just to capture ideas and a WordPress plugin to actually schedule posts. It works okay but I still have too many days where I’m either sitting here going “what to post??” or looking at what I have scheduled for the next day and not wanting/having time to write it.

  • I’m so ready to eat all the food 🙂 It’s going to be chilly here, it seems (burr). I’ve been in planning mode lately too. Hope you guys have a great holiday!

    • You too! This morning I joked that we should get out our winter gear for the 60-degree weather that’s supposedly coming 🙂
