Today I am

I have been creating up a storm of goodies for my etsy shop ever since re-opening it a week ago. While 5 orders in a week isn't much for many crafty people, for me it's a fair number given that I really only do this as a hobby.

It's been fun though. I've created a new stationery set and even sent things to Norway. Love it.

Planning: Ok, I have a confession. I pulled out my Christmas tree. Yes. I know. It's insanely early and I have no excuse for such Pollyanna displays of Christmas cheer. But there you have it. I'm really looking forward to celebrating the holidays in our new home. Like insanely looking forward to it apparently. Don't worry. I didn't decorate it yet and I will have the tact to wait until Dec before even contemplating decorating it. But yeah, I'm getting excited!

nging sometimes because people have the funniest hang ups!

Viewing & Listening:

Pink. Seriously can't help but love the girl. In an age of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, she is the one female artist that I have always liked and respected from that particular generation of female pop stars. 

I know there are so many other great female artists out there. And I love many of them. But I have a not so secret love for Pink. I just do and I'm outing myself.

Reading: Just started reading The Baby in the Bathwater

Thinking: Just that I'm tired so much lately. What's up with that? Seriously? I went to bed at 9 last night and 8:30 the night before. (Granted I wake up at 5:45 am, but still why won't my body let me sleep and feel rested)?! 

I may have finally honed in on an area of study for a Masters in Education. I've been contemplating this move for about 4 years now but have never been sure exactly what I wanted to explore but egads people, I think I have it! And better yet, it's an angle that allows me to fuse interculturalism/diversity, ESL, and disabilities together under the rubric of universal design for learning at the Canadian postsecondary level. This is a good thing. Now I just have to decide if this is something I want to start in Fall 2013 or 2014. I'm leaning towards 2014. 

Realizing: That for some reason I'm really not interested in doing the work right now and that I'm not sure how to change that pattern. I know it's important. I know the benefits. But I'm really struggling to make it a priority in my life right now. So instead I'm just trying to enjoy the contemplation that comes from getting outside every day while I hike up through the park/heath to the train.

Feeling: A little out of sorts with family. I love them but they drive me crazy, you know? I'll get over it but for now, I'm just laying low and staying off their radar!



  • I'm grateful that the B6 seems to be working and am ready to start a Hallelujah Happy Dance (or the pagan equivalent
  • Beautiful sunrises and kisses goodbye in the morning
  • Finally figuring out where to put those dang star lights we bought years ago!
  • A retired colleague who chase after me because I can be bad at writing back but mean to cause I miss her and the awe that comes from realizing that a woman who could be my mother is actually a dear friend.
