Random Evening List


I took this photo in February a year ago.

I got this list from another blogger, though I did adjust it some for my own use. :-)  (Gotta change those recipes, you know!)

I have been….

Making…a quilt top, a pillow cover, and a winter scarf.
Cooking…simply lately, as we’re recovering from a stomach bug.
Reading…a book that I don’t like much.  Think I might delete it. (Kindle)
Wanting…to feel well again! 
Deciding…what changes to make in the living room next.
Enjoying…having had a good one-on-one conversation with my mom today.
Waiting…to find out when Mom’s next surgery will be.  (sigh)
Liking…the idea of getting the T.V. out of the living room.
Wondering…how to adjust my diet to improve some health problems.
Loving…my husband. :-)
Pondering…the Hyper Patriarchy Movement and its beliefs.
Considering…how I want to spend some money I have for projects.
Watching…myself type.  (No brainer.) ;-)
Hoping…to get to go to prayer meeting tomorrow night; and that my mom will be able to walk even better after her next surgery!
Marveling…at the glory of winter sunsets.  God’s artwork is without equal.
Needing…to take an Epsom salts bath.  Ahhh…..
Smelling… - probably, but that is none of your business. :-D
Wearing…comfortable clothes due to being sick.
Noticing…that my husband and I look middle aged now.
Knowing…that we need to go to bed soon.
Thinking…about people’s tendency to make others perform to their expectations through guilt.
Admiring…batik fabric.
Getting…tired of this list already.  Hmmmm.
Bookmarking…too many things to mention.  I’m an incorrigible researcher.
Giggling…with my sister-in-law.  :-)
Feeling…a little melancholy from being sick, having so much cloudy weather, and my mom facing more surgery.
Thanking God…for helping me to feel really well for a little while when my in-laws spent a long weekend with us; and that we had a very blessed visit with them!  Also, for some sunshine and a sun bath this afternoon!
Smiling…because I changed this list some more.  :-D

And so good night!  (To quote a famous diarist – to whom I bear no resemblance in style, but it’s always more impressive to quote someone famous…right?) :-)


  1. Oh, I'm so sorry you've been sick! I hope you're feeling better.
    I'll keep your mom in my prayers. I know what that feels like. My mom had triple bypass heart surgery eight years ago. We're so thankful she's still here.
    Your picture is beautiful!
    Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

    1. Thank you, Melanie. I am feeling better now, though with some room for improvement. At least that's hopeful.
      We appreciate your prayer regarding my mom's surgery. I'm glad to hear your mom is still plugging away. It's a blessing what they can do for us these days!

  2. I do hope you are feeling better soon.

    Lovely list and an interesting read:)
    And a lovely photo:)

    1. Thank you, Jo. I am feeling better than I did much of last week, thank the Lord. Still room to improve, though, and I need to get back to exercising/walking. :-)
