Today I am...

Drinking smoothies galore because I started Dr. Goldner's Goodbye Lupus program again as a January refresher. I have not had a relapse, just giving my body a healing/nourishing new year gift after all those Christmas treats + needing to recover from something unrelated. Maybe for the full six weeks, maybe not. Just following my own intuition on this. (I feel great and very happy with my choice... But I am definitely ready for a warm bowl of curry potato soup when I decide to be done with only smoothies!)

Knitting my hat! Loom knitting, not real knitting. I don't know how to knit for real. I love the color and can't wait to try it on.

Listening to a potential teenage boy audio book while I work out, Good Man by Nathan Clarkson. (Listening via Everand, sign up with my link to get 60 free days for you and 30 free days for me!๐Ÿ˜)

Planning a healthy yet easy lunchbox menu since some of my family members have an event coming up.

Reading lots of books (always) but my main fiction read, which I can't wait to curl up with tonight, is the Baxter installment Love Story.

Rebounding and then lying with my legs up the wall to keep helping my lymphatic system. 

Researching things to do for an upcoming trip! Always exciting.

Teaching history (Joan of Arc!)... Along with our daily subjects, of course.

Thinking about blogging. I've been blogging since ~2004 and that is so crazy to me. I have quit and started over a few times but in the last year I've thought about quitting forever many times. Multiple times I was ready to delete everything and disappear but had to wait since an author was counting on a book review. Today I miss blogging, regular journal-y life blogging, and I am glad I still have the blog. 

Wearing the comfiest home day uniform- a soft, long, bum-covering flannel + leggings + my beloved Skookums socks.

*The inspiration for (format of?) this post originally came from Camp Patton.


  1. Oh, Sarah! If you disappear, from whom will I learn about all these wonderful books and films? I have been interested in Christian literature for so long, but for many years I read only Russian authors. And then I accidentally found you and discovered so many new things for myself! To be honest, I often take a notepad and pen, go to your blog and start writing down all these titles so that I don’t forget about them in the future. So don't disappear! Have a nice day and good health!๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿค—


Thanks so much for your comments! I always read them, don't always have time to answer quickly. Sorry about that!
