what I'm doing right now

i needed a little break from Christmas..{the commercial end of it} for the day and i remembered Lindsey @ Pleated Poppy doing a post on

:right now:

and i loved it.

she stole this idea from meg and a bunch of other bloggers around the internets:  so now i'm a theif;)

::: right now i am :::

watching:  american pickers..i love shows like that.  finding old cool stuff and bringing life to it again.  but i'm typing on the computer so i am half listening

eating:  i ate mexican for lunch..2 beef crunchy tacos and chips & salsa.  my guilty pleasure.

drinking:  dr. pepper.  when i'm stressed..my second one today..must be stressed

wearing:  american eagle sweats, camo slippers and a cami with a hoodie.  can't seem to get warm..this house is either too warm or to cold

avoiding: cleaning my house.  it is growing worse by the minute.  card board pieces everywhere from building boxes to ship in.  now that i hand wash the dishes they don't get done quite as quickly..dreaming of a maid

feeling:  nauseous..the throw up kind.  so hoping i don't have the puking flu.  i despise looking into a toilet when i throw up.  who invented that anyway?

missing:  the days when i didn't have gray hair.  to much work but i would look funny with gray hair

thankful:  for friends, HOT water!, light bulbs, orders, family, that i'm breathing, grace

weather:  40 degrees today.  it is dark now and i feel as if i could already go to bed...and it is only 6:02!

praying:  for tara, misty, t'ere and her 2 daughters

needing:  some r & r.  some sun a good book...solitude.  God & me..somewhere..quiet where there is not a dirty house or laundry:)

thinking:  about the shop and all that we have to do before we open.  i am beyond words.  so much work but fun work:)  i swear i can't breathe i am so nervous

loving:  grace's hot chocolate in the evening, him being away and that our home is peaceful, seeing more beauty in my days and trying to see the gift in hard things


would love to hear what you are doing :right now:

be back monday with pictures of the beginning of our beauty hunting for the shop!

take one step today to begin living your dream..just one:)

love ya
