Currently Me

The best inspiration sometimes comes from fellow bloggers… thanks to RunSingTeach’s Sarah Barton Thomas for posting this today, with her list inspired by Lindsay’s List.

Here’s my list

Currently: Dogs are fed and waiting for their walk, drinking coffee, husband is at work, kid will wake up any minute (must type fast!).

Current Inspiration: Minimalist and tiny houses. We need to downsize and get a handle on all the stuff in our life.

My favorite from a tiny house on Sauvie Island, near Portland, Oregon. Picture from:

Current Book: Organizing Schools for Improvement: Lessons from Chicago. Seriously. Must catch up on blog posts this week.

Current Tune: Wisconsin Public Radio has Sunday afternoon program called Simply Folk that I LOVE. Yesterday they started with the Indigo Girls playing In the Bleak Midwinter, which is one of my favorite holiday tunes.

Current Drink: SO Delicious non-dairy egg nog

Current Foods: Homemade applesauce. Making and freezing batches for reusable pouches. For the kid, not me.

Current Show(s): (guilty confession) I just finished watching the final season of How I Met Your Mother. We used to watch it but lost interest when it dragged on too long, but I wanted to know it ended!

Current Outfit: Leggings under skinny black jeans (it’s cold here!), striped black and beige shirt from the Loft, silver hoops, Frye’s boots, and curled hair. When I dress up. Otherwise: well worn jeans (plus long underwear – have I mentioned it’s cold?) and nike sweatshirt with grey Lululemon Vinyasa Scarf.

Current Indulgence: Coconut cream dark chocolate and Pinterest and aforementioned coconut egg nog.

Current Want: New book bag – must be classy, waterproof, possible to bike with, backpack/shoulder bag, fit my computer and water bottle but not too heavy… I don’t think it exists.

Current Gratitude: My kid LOVES books. We read “Are you my mother?” over and over, first thing when he wakes up and before bed. He also loves “I am a bunny,” and when we found a hollow log at the dog park yesterday, he recognized it as “Nan-itch” (Nicholas)’s home. So sweet.
