Taking Stock

What's been going on in my life lately.

Sometimes it feels good to make a list of the things that are going on in your life at that moment - it can help keep things in perspective. And it is also fun to come back at a later time to see what you were doing, say, a year ago or so.

So, here's what's been going on in my neck of the woods lately:

watching: The Night Manager and Wayward Pines

reading: Imagine Me Gone by Adam Hassett

knitting: baby shoes for my new niece

listening: The Lumineers

cooking: Asparagus - it's the season here in Germany

drinking: Green Tea

planting: bamboo and hydrangeas

wondering: when the temps will become more steady

staring: at the rain

wishing: it would go away and let the sun out

remembering: summer camp way back when

hoping: for a smooth ride through Leonie's teenage years

There are certainly a lot more things going on and on my mind, but these are the ones I want to remember.

So, what's currently going on in your neck of the woods - what are you up to and what is on your mind?

Happy Monday xxx


  1. I'm planning to stop by the store on my way home from work tonight and FINALLY get to planting my garden (better a little late than never, right?) Every day I seem to have some time, the weather doesn't cooperate. We even had a little hail and SNOW yesterday morning!

    1. Snow?! Oh gosh, no! I hope it won't return to Germany!

  2. I'm also wondering when the temperatures will be steady! It was 4 degrees yesterday and it's 15 today! This morning I started reading this month's Vanity Fair and I'm looking forward to curling up in bed tonight and reading some more. I always love the days when my Vanity Fair comes in the mail!

    1. I love when my magazine comes in the mail! Best mail!

  3. That's so fun! What a great idea. I think it would help me be in the present moment, too!


Thank you so much for stopping by!
