I am …
… very grateful for the wonderful time we spent with family and friends over the holidays. It’s always such an intense, but very special time. I still feel a little emotionally jetlegged (is this even a thing?), so bear with me, if I haven’t been on top of my conversational game (I am behind on emails, Whatsapp-convos, Twitter, blogging and blog reading), but I am sure I’ll catch up some time soon.
… looking forward to a knitting class I signed up for with a friend. I technically know how to knit and read patterns, so I don’t need a class, but it (a) gets me out of the house and (b) gives me an opportunity to ask a real person some questions instead of googling YouTube videos when I get stuck!
… so incredibly happy that it finally rained after 50+ days without any precipitation at all. California really needed it (and will hopefully get more).
… enjoying some new skill-related challenges at work (it’s always fun to solve problems and learn something new, right?), but am also still quite frustrated with my overall work situation. I won’t go into it here, but let’s just say, I am not happy.
… finding time to get into not one, but two (new to me) TV series. I am always a little late to (most) TV-series-bandwagons, but I also enjoy the freedom of watching episode after episode at my own pace, without being slave to the TV schedule. Because waiting for a week (or even months between seasons) after ending an episode with a cliff-hanger is just plain cruel.
… so devastated that some of my friends are going through some really rough times right now. I was really hoping that 2014 could start for everyone with a lot of good fortune and happy things to look forward to, but alas, that doesn’t seem to be the case. I know, I know, there is this whole “you can’t enjoy the good times without experiencing the bad”-thing, but you know, the bad could just disappear for a while already. Seriously, ENOUGH!
… really enjoying Miss Kyla’s “Planner Camp” e-
… looking foward to a getaway to SoCal in February! I need some beach time in my life and pizza from – what I claim to be – THE best pizza beach hut in all of California.
