Currently: January 2023

Here's to a new year of "Currently" hosted by Jennifer at Overflowing With Thankfulness. The "currently" prompts this month reflect the freshness and resolve of a new year, which I love. Today, we're (hopefully) flying home from Saskatchewan so we're in a bit of a limbo space as we've just finished celebrating Christmas and haven't yet been home to anticipate the New Year.


I'm loving all the time we've had with my parents. Additionally, I'm also loving all the mixed drinks my dad has been making me. We like to invent our own drinks around here and I've really enjoyed his various inventions.


 I don't think I'm organizing much of anything right now. I'm looking forward to getting some house cleaning done on Friday and getting our house organized for a warm, cozy, January. I think I'm going to hang some white twinkle lights in our living room for a warm glow.


To get out skating with the kids more! We went a few times in December and I'd love to get out once a week or so. We have our neighbourhood rink and our local uptown rink and I want to make good use of them.


We've been eating all the yummy foods that my parents had for us -- spanakopita, jam jams, delicious cheeses (a yummy Merlot cheese for me and Sam to share!), fleisch pereski (meat buns, that my mom made vegetarian just for me), carrot pickles -- all the food!!!

We had an outdoor wiener roast yesterday and it was soooo yummy! Once we get home, our eating will be much less exciting and delicious!


I'm anticipating a winter weekend away in a couple of weekends. We're hopefully going to go downhill skiing, snowshoeing, and skating. It should be a lot of fun, if we can make it work. Last year we had to cancel because I had a health scare so I'm just not counting on it happening until we're actually on the road!

So that's what's up with us "currently." At some point over the next few days, I'm looking forward to reading the other posts in the "Currently" link up and finding out what's up with all of you!

Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
