Right now I am...
...feeling more positive than I have in a long time. I was on the slippery slope to depression.
...happy to be back on Curaçao
...smiling at the plant we bought immediately after arriving. I needed something to make me feel at home.
...trying to prevent getting homesick this time. I was in November. Not good.
...getting more confident about our Dutch home really being sold. We have a buyer and will close on it by the end of March. We will travel back to empty the house before that (and to celebrate my parents '50th anniversary).
...reading a lot. Currently reading: The Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah. Read it before and didn't like it back then, but it's growing on me. Still think this Poirot is not the same as Agatha Christie's Poirot.
...knitting... something. A cotton rectangle. Not entirely sure what it will be. I hope to have enough of this cotton yarn to make (small) bathroom rug, but if I don't, I think I'll use it as a drying mat for dishes.
...working hard to get everything that's on my plate done in time.
...enjoying sunsets at the beach. I never, never get tired of those.
....looking forward to swimming tomorrow. We arrived Thursday, didn't get to it Friday and on Saturday T. cut his thumb, so we had to wait a few days for it to heal.
...learning to work with my new camera. I traded my DSLR (that I hardly ever used because it was to heavy to lug around) for a high level compact, but I feel clumsy operating it.
...trying to get back into the habit of blogging. Right now posts are always a good start for me to make that happen.
