Currently (feat. videos!)

What I'm up to today....

Watching… this video: (hehee!)

Hearing… the magical sound of silence (it's early in the morning and most of my siblings seem to be asleep still)
Tasting… my positively delectable tea with honey in it
Needing… to stop procrastinating and actually get some work done.
Wanting... tomorrow to come slowly.. what is it about having to work again after a long weekend?!
Regretting… those annoying things you say without meaning to and then kick yourself afterwards.
Feeling… tired but peaceful (I'm writing this at various times during the day - it's now middle afternoon)
Wishing…not really wishing anything
Thinking… about Jana and her antics yesterday - we had friends over who have a little 3 month old baby and she was so cute with him. :) She loved meeting little Aaron!
Laughing… about a joke... You know you've got awesome friends when they put jokes in your birthday card that they know you'll like.
Recovering… from camp
Anticipating… skiing!! The ski season started last week, yay! Hopefully we can make at least one trip up the mountain this year - maybe more! Whoop, whoop! Winter's not all that bad.
Dreaming…of my end-of-year-plans... not sharing them on my blog at the moment but I will eventually, don't worry. Suffice it for now to say that I'm super excited about the end of the year! ;)
Readingthis article. Fascinating. Do you know how to prove to a Jehovah's Witness that Jesus is God? Have a look at it.
Singing… 'Trust in You' by Lauren Daigle

Wearing… burgundy polar fleece, dark jeans and hair in plaits. It's a Monday.
Preparing… this blog post
Googling… what the longest word in the English language is. Guys, turns out it's really long. Apparently if you look in any of the major English dictionaries it's pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis (a word that refers to a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, specifically from a volcano; medically, it is the same as silicosis). Well, you learn something every day. Next challenge: pronouncing it. :P
Working…on unpacking boxes and organising stuff.
Emailing… my sister links to various things
Sewing… nothing! At the moment. I do lots of mending but not much creating new things.
Checking… on the smell in the kitchen... Danella's making chocolate brownies.
Suffering… from that lovely smell
Practicing… self control :P

And that's it for today! :)

What have you been up to?
What is the longest word you can pronounce?
What is your favourite joke?

  1. Oooh Lovely Post! I've been planning for my brother and I's trip to NZ! We've been once before but this time it's for Dad's work and we get to tag along :D

    1. Thank you! Ooooh, exciting! When and whereabouts are you coming? Come to Christchurch. It's a lovely place. The South Island is really different from the North Island.

  2. Oh and this is Evie from Insta (I have two blogger accounts)

  3. Great post!!! I love that song from Lauren daigle :D

    1. Thank you! :) So do I. She has a very 'easy listening' voice.

  4. Try "New-mono-ultra-microscopic-silico-volcano-conio-sis." ;)

  5. I've been up to Dornach in Switzerland! Not as far up as the Alps yet.
    As for long words, antidisestablishmentarianism is pretty easy :P
    And jokes? A good one I found recently: I, for one, like Roman numerals.
