Today I am . . .
Geeking out and singing along to a Pandora station based on Captain and Tenille’s Muskrat Love. It’s all 1970’s Carpenters, Elton John, Stevie Wonder and similar elevator-worthy songs. I am old and I am embracing it. (I somehow know every word of every song!)
Playing solitaire with a deck of cards I bought in 1987 from a London newsstand right before going on a three day trip to Edinburgh. They are perfectly worn in.
Planning a dinner of glazed ham and Costa Rican style rice and beans. Each year my employer gives me a gift certificate for a “turkey or ham” and I’ve been choosing the ham the last couple of years. Hello . . . spiral ham!!!
Enjoying the memory of having my family over for a belated Christmas dinner last night. We feasted on a vegetarian burrito bar with ginger snaps for dessert. We played a raucous game of Apples to Apples and had a thoroughly enjoyable and low stress evening.
Thinking I should do a big Goodwill donation run before the 31st.
Preparing yummy meals and snacks for my son and his friend who are holed up playing FIFA 13 all day.
Planning out an article challenging people to participate in the buy-nothing-new Compact for 2014.
Now your turn. What are you doing today?
