Thinking about :: Jumping in this year and creating a December Daily album. Right now I'm leaning toward this Simple Stories 6x8 binder (with these page protectors) because I can use so many of my Project Life pieces and that is where I'm comfortable when it comes to memory keeping right now. (Learn more about December Daily on Ali's blog.)
Planning :: After your comments and emails about my last Project Life post, I'm planning to share more about my experience with it in some shorter posts about what's working for me, keeping me going, and the simple stuff I'm using.
Loving :: Fran's dark chocolate sauce. Seriously. It might change your life.
Enjoying :: Cooking. And thinking about cooking. For the former, I'm turning to The Cook's Illustrated Cookbook and making comfort foods like roasted chicken. With the latter, I'm soaking up Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef's Thanksgiving recipe (with videos!) goodness + diving in Tara's archives. And I'm pinning recipes again.
Reading :: The Way It Is by William Stafford and Mary Oliver's new one A Thousand Mornings are on my nightstand. Last month I devoured The Night Circus and A Discovery of Witches (and its sequel). Those books are creative, magical, smart fun! (And it's possible that I'm reading the Richard Castle books. Maybe. You know when I can't sleep in the middle of the night.)
Playing with :: We're having lots of tea parties over here and baking "heart cakes" (she puts a bowl filled with these hearts inside her play oven) that are, of course, "mac and cheese flavor." And decorating her watercolor/coloring journal with Hello Kitty stickers (her friend at school loves Hello Kitty so it could easily become all "ello kit-teee" all the time over here). And reading Don't Cry Big Bird on repeat (a favorite of my brother's that is now ours. Out of print but available at Powells. Totally about how Big Bird is sad because he is too big to play with his friends and then they realize this and figure out ways to inlude him. Lots of good conversations happening about feelings.)
How are things over there in your corner? What are you reading, playing, loving these days?
