A Look Now: 2014

Hey!

As promised, a look at what’s happening in my world now.

Photography
I’ve used a point and shoot camera for years and it worked fine. I’ve had a desire though to improve my photography skills and my little camera wasn’t up to the task of taking the types of pictures I wanted.  For Christmas, Honey Do gave me a Canon Rebel. I’m so excited to use it.  I’m on a learning curve though.  This shot is the kind that you get when you’re not used to such a fast camera.  Keeping it real.  : )IMG_0050

Books
The stack I’m currently reading includes Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Search For The Twelve Apostles by Dr. William McBirnie, Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn, The Lost Books of the Bible  published by Gramercy Books and I pulled out my old textbook to read “Hamlet” in The Riverside Shakespeare.

I finished The Skin Map by Stephen Lawhead and The Violets of March by Sarah Jio {book club read} this week and I liked both.

Music
Recent downloads:

Hibernation Day” by Jars of Clay

Let it go” by Idina Menzel from the movie, Frozen

I also love these two songs from the movie: “Fixer Upper”  by Maia Wilson & cast and
For the First Time in Forever” by Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel.

Step Out” by Jose Gonzalez from the movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

I like this one, too: “Stay Alive” by Jose Gonzalez

TV
We really enjoyed the Sing Off before Christmas.  I really liked Ten’s rendition of “Skyfall.”  I love the blonde’s curly hair do but I’m not sure I can pull it off.  What do you think? I also want to sing like that too but I don’t think that’s going to happen.  I wasn’t blessed with the same vocal chords so I’ll have to close my eyes and pretend in my dreams.

We also have gotten hooked on Person of Interest. We’re almost done with Season 1 and it’s so good.  Obviously, a theme is emerging in our house because we’re enjoying Elementary, Almost Human and Agents of Shield, too.

I wish HGTV would quit with all of the House Hunter shows.  I miss all of the old design shows.  Where did they go??  And what about the “G” in HGTV?  It’s been forever since a garden focused show was on.  Anybody else feel the same way?

Favorite Blog Post of the Week
I loved this post.   Actually, the post was written some time ago but I just found it.  I love the collaboration and insight this mother shares about her experience drawing with her daughter.  Truly lovely art.

Clothes
I’ve been searching and searching for tops that I can wear with leggings or tights that are LONG ENOUGH.  I’m modest.  I like my tops to come down past my fanny and down in the front.  I think the problem is I’m not very tall {5’4.5”} but I’m long-waisted.  Can anybody else relate??  I ordered some tops from J.Jill and thank you, thank you, they’re long enough.  Honey Do liked this one the best, here.  I also bought this great jacket at Dick’s that I’m loving.

Enough about what I’m into these days —- What about you?

Blessings,

Mimi
