Currently- on my birthday!!!!

 It's my birthday!!! On my birthday every year I like to reflect on the current situation in my life. Here's what is going on lately.

thinking | that I'd better enjoy a little bit of relaxing for my birthday before I get to some serious work for tax season.

drinking | water and more water. And tea! I've switched from one to two cups. Oh and wine because hey... #birthday

reading | I've discovered Taylor Jenkins Reid and adore One True Loves... it might very well be my very favourite book of 2018... and it's only January. Exactly my genre! I also read Forever Interrupted by the same author. And for the neighbourhood book club, I'm trying to read My Secret Sister but we'll see!

loving | The iRobot Roomba. You won't believe how much that little bin fills up and how happy I am with my clean floors. 

wanting | An Instant Pot! I've drunk the Kool Aid. 

watching | I've just finished re-watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix-- I put it on while I putter around the house. Now I'll wrap it up with a Year in the Life. Also This is Us, Grey's Anatomy, The Bachelor and some sitcoms. Scandal has gotten so dark for me, I'm struggling to decide if to watch the rest of the series.

listening | to Showtunes on Google Home

remembering | last birthday when I got the most awful stomach bug in the entire world.

trying | reduce as much sugar and simple carbs from my diet as possible. I did it last week and I feel great... but no fear, I will be consuming cake today!

wishing |  that this cold and flu season doesn't affect our house too, too much.

planning | our kids' schooling in the new year. So complicated.

enjoying | The clutter free, post Christmas feeling. It's tough to get everything all cleaned up and put away but when it is... awesomeness

day dreaming | about Mexico in less than two months!! 

waiting |  for this weather to warm up

liking | that it is two years since we moved in to our new home!

needing | In all honesty, I have everything I need. Good health and wonderful family--there's an abundance of richness in my life.

wearing | snow boots. I got them a few years ago and this is the first winter I've had to pull them out on almost a daily basis. I usually wear my Hunters or Uggs but this year is just not letting me. 

starting | a thirty day youtube beginner's yoga challenge with D. He claims he thought we were doing a thirty day yogurt challenge which is why he agreed.

pinning | nothing these days-- I have an on-off relationship with Pinterest.

smelling | Fresh Cream. The very, very best body wash IMO.

thanking |  D for a most wonderful birthday dinner on Saturday... Pictures are below. A tasting menu, wine pairings and four hours of wonderful conversation! 

The champagne and caviar course.

Linking up with the lovely Biana for Weekending.
